I just switched my reservation from AoA to POR to take advantage of the Disney visa offer . We have stayed at POFQ before and loved it, hoping the same for POR. Traveling with DH, DD6, DS and DS2. Is there anything specific I need to do to get an AB room? With 5 of us, the extra bed is a must!

Right now it is just for Disney Visa holders but it will open to the general public on 10/10/12.

Here a couple of threads on the code board discussing it

Since your youngest is under the age of 3, you are not guaranteed an AB room. Only if you book preferred; which are all AB buildings.

I am hoping to be able to do this on our return trip next summer. We got rained out of this & the movie every night we were there last year.

Oh, good, I did book a preferred room! So that guarantees me a room with a Murphy bed?

Yes and a preferred building is closer to the main building also.

If you booked 4 adults and one child 16 are you guaranteed a AB room?

Yes, essentially you are a family of 5; which is only allowed at AB.

The OP was not quite yet considered a family of 5, because her 3rd youngest was under the age of 3 - they don't count towards room occupancy.

A 16 year old, or anyone over the age of 3 is considered an occupant.

The reason is that it is assumed that in case of a fire, a parent would carry out the infant and they would not take up room in the walkway/corridor to exit to grade.

A 16 year old would be walking on their own and would be taking up room in the walkway/corridor to exit in case of a fire.

Great news! Thanks for the info. We are actually only counted as 3 since I have twin 2 year olds who aren't officially counted yet, but the Murphy bed is a must with 2 adults and 3 kids. So glad to hear that my preferred room guarantees that. One less thing to worry about!

If you definitely booked a preferred room at POR you are in the AB area and in the four buildings clustered close to the water and main building at that!

Yes, you are also guaranteed a very crowded room.

Actually you are considered a family of 4, because only ONE child under the age of 3 doesn't count towards occupancy - but the second one does.

Really? I wasn't aware of that. Good to know. Does that change pricing etc? I know we don't need park tickets for either twin, and neither can be purchased a dining plan. So it's confusing that DIsney counts them sometimes, but not others.

No, it is for occupancy for fire codes, not anything else.
