You could do two rooms at Port Orleans-Riverside. In the Alligator Bayou section there are rooms that sleep 5, so two rooms there would work. You could even book one room with two beds and the trundle and then one room with the king bed -- just as you wanted.

In that situation they will tell you it's guaranteed, but it is definitely not guaranteed. I know first hand.

Wow--thanks for all the responses. My wife and I had figured it wouldn't be allowed but thought I would ask the experts 😀. I just know it is going to be tough to keep my youngest out of our bed and that would be pretty tight in a full.

If I was guaranteed a room that fell under the policy allowing it I'd be expecting an adequate alternative.

It's their policy, not mine. Now, CMs that say things that are guaranteed that aren't is a totally different story

Again, many people report they request connecting and always get it, but WDW won't guarantee it and there have been times a family had to split up.

Good luck!
This was not true in our case. When I reserved ASMU, we called to book and were told when there are children in the second room they DO guarentee connecting rooms. We had no troubles.

The problem is, they say both things. You have people with reservations stating Guaranteed Connecting Rooms, while the WDW web site states that connecting rooms are a request only, and not guaranteed.

As far as getting an adequate alternative, all Disney guarantees you when you make a reservation is a room(s) at a Disney resort. That is all. Room type is not guaranteed.

Not allowed if your daughter was 5. Did you give her correct age on the reservation?
