I could be wrong, but I didn't think any of them did. You can only have 2 people in a king room at POR.

I read somewhere and I don't remember where now that all king rooms in the bayou have the Murphy bed on the wall. I remember seeing a picture and thinking it looked weird with the TV up so high, but I guess you could think of it as a rustic sofa (aka seating bench)

yeah thats the new room set up with built in murphy, no longer a trundle..
may look cute, but they lost a lot of space for storage as a result, not really a fan....so HINT, bring a hanging plastic shoe or organizer to use in the closet area for more storage..especially for kids, an outfit in a ziloc with all accessories, makes life really simple while on vacation, pick a bag and out the door you go...no more lost hairbows, tshirts etc...
I miss those drawers in the old wardrobe...

So they have them, but unless you only have one child under the age of 3, you can't hope to use them?

the preferred rooms in AB section have them
so no, you do not need a child under 3...the preferred rooms are AB 14, 18 (and one other building i think)..they all have that set up

so if KINGS are in 14 /18 they should be there

So, are they allowing 4 in a king room, as long as one is under 3?

My thought as well. Disney has long had the policy that only two adults in a king bed room. And one under 3. A child under three would use a pack and play...at least that has been the case up until now.
So, you have to wonder if Disney is changing that policy.

No. They only allow 3 in a king room as long as one is under 3. Otherwise they only allow 2. Which is why it is strange they have the pull down bed in them, unless they plan on changing that sometime in the future.

I'll go ahead and do it for you:

http://www.portorleans.org/

The site is run by a DISboards member who also runs the FAQ threads for both POR and POFQ on the Resort forum. There's a few types of links you can't post here, but not certainly not a very helpful Disney-related site.
