I second the cabins at FW. There's a double in the bedroom and bunks then a double murphy bed in the living room. 4 beds. Nice to have the full kitchen and extra space also.

The set-up would be similar at CSR. CBR still has double beds, so that would not be the most ideal choice, but it would work with the air mattress.

The threads for CSR, POR, and POFQ are very well maintained and have a ton of pictures; I would check them all three out and see what theming suits you best.

Please help with ? What is CSR, POR?

Thanks everyone. Checked into bed at POR and it too small for an adult or my son. Too bad I really like that resort. Wondering if Animator's bed is the same.

My 12 year old slept on the Innova table bed. It's a full size bed but it's not as long. I think your 14 yr old would be fine. My son said it was very comfortable. My son is about 5' tall.

Thanks. Really trying to find good options. My 14 year old is a man child. He plays baseball and is tall. I wish they would show pics of adults on those bed at POR and the one at AOA. Thanks for the info.

I've read some reviews where adults slept on the table bed at AoA and they said that they were fine and that the bed was just a little shorter than a normal full size bed. The murphy beds at POR are recommended for children under age 9. I personally think your son should be fine at AoA. If I had thought of it while I was there, I would have tested the table bed. Just from looking at it, it didn't seem small. One other option you have would be a suite at All Star Music. There's a separate bedroom just like at AoA but the beds in the main living area are a pull out sofa and two sleeper chairs. I'm not sure if that would be very comfortable for the person who has to sleep on one of the chairs. Also keep in mind that the pull out sofa at AoA is newer so it should be more comfortable than the older ones at ASM.

ASMu suite has full size sleep sofa, twin size chair bed and smaller youth size ottoman. I thought the chair was more comfortable than the sleep sofa. We didn't open up the ottoman so I can't comment on that.

I think Nana would find table bed more comfortable than sleep sofa. I think 14yo would be fine on sleep sofa. I haven't stayed at AoA yet but I've read the entire AoA thread and lots of reviews and haven't seen folks complaining about the table bed being small.

Out of 5 times asking for connecting rooms we have been denied them 1 time. So while odds are very good you will get them if you ask for them, they are in no way guaranteed.

I'm usually big on having extra bathrooms, but with only 4 people on a trip it shouldn't be that big of a deal. One room with an air mattress is the cheapest way to go.
