Values aren't allowed rollaways. I think it's firecode, so this surprises me.

Rollaways are no longer allowed at the moderates now that they have gone to queen sized beds. The queens take up the allowed space for exiting the room.

Deluxes often allow rollaways because they room is bigger and the allowed room capacity is larger.

Values can sleep up to 4 and with the double beds there is room to have one while still leaving room to walk around them.

However they may have gotten a rollaway/king combo because they ran out of double rooms so the resort fixed it by offering a king with a rollaway instead of the standard 2 beds or because the king room had enough space to accomadate the rollaway with out impeading pathways to the exit. But I can't remember if it is an option when reserving.

Rollaways has always been on a first come basis so I think they discourage the practice.

You should probably call and ask, I don't think the website will give you enough options or explanations.

You can't reserve a king size bed room at AoA or other value resorts - they are by request.

Hmm, didn't realize they had not made the switch when the others did. I have't stayed there and don't want to so I'm never on thier threads or info page.

Bet you could still request a rollaway there then.

Maybe things have changed, but a few years ago my sister and her family were at ASMusic. They had two teens (boy and girl) and got a roll away. She and her dh had one bed, teen daughter the other, and teen son on the roll away. Having said that, she said they would never again squeeze a roll away in a value room!

It was out of the way. There was plenty of room to walk around and easy access to the exit. Maybe cause it was an accessable room is why there was more space. My aunt had to use her walker cause she just had knee replacement surgery.

I am so excited that I just booked our trip for June. We will be staying at the AoA in a Lion King family suite. Is it true that some of the masters bedrooms have king beds? And what are the pool hours?

We just got back from AoA and loved it! The Cars suite was awesome and the resort itself is amazing. I think my kids were just as amazed by the resort as they were by the parks. The resort definitely helped to make our trip very magical!

We were just there last week. We only swam in the Nemo pool and I thought the water was pretty chilly. My kids didn't seem to mind, though!

Thanks cmsb!! That is what I was afraid of. We stayed onsite at Port Orleans Riverside a few years a ago around Christmas and it was too cold for us to get in, however, there were plenty of people in the pool. We are from Texas and it has to be pretty toasty before I will get in. But, the kids won't mind at all!
Can't wait!

THANKS!!

On the contrary. They are very trackable. I was able to find out in minutes with just a phone call, (not even knowing the numbers on the cards!) IF they were used, WHEN they were used and WHERE they were used. They then emailed me the copies of when and where the cards were used. I easily forwarded that info to the police.
