From PortOrleans.org:

"Additionally, Alligator Bayou rooms (only) include an extra fold-down Murphy bed located over the banquette bench seat (including King Bed rooms). These beds are about 63" in length and are suitable for children aged up to about ten years, but would probably be too small for most adults over 5 ft in height. Note: the only way to guarantee this feature is by having a party of five people at Riverside, or by booking a Preferred Location room"

If there are indeed beds that provide sleeping space for 3 in the rooms (2 in King, 1 in Murphy), anyone know how does that work with the fire code? The new Murphy beds were just recently installed and it seems silly for Disney to have installed them if they can't actually be slept in. (Although I can imagine a scenario where it was cheaper for Disney to bulk order the Murphy Bed/bench/storage drawers setup for all of the rooms and install them as a standard, even in rooms where the Murphy bed would never be used. Gotta love large corporations )

OP, I would also re-ask your question on the POR thread. Andre or someone else may have experience with your specific situation. The thread can be found here.

Off Topic: Anyone know where to find out more about the fire code regulations? This was new info for me too, and it's the kind of slightly weird topic that really interests me. (I'm tons of fun at parties, really )
The fast way to get this question answered is to do a test booking, which I did. When attempting to book a King room with two adults, one 3 year old child, Port Orleans Riverside, the room shows unavailable. Reason: Party Size Exceeds Maximum Room Occupancy.
(The murphy bed addition doesn't seem to matter-it's still a no.)
