I did book with the spring room discount online but when I called I didn't even get as far as to mention a discount.

A cot would not really work for my family as we have a wheelchair and a stroller along with 5 peoples luggage. If that is what they offer would I have to take it??? A cot would make things practically impossible to move around in a regular sized room. Are the rooms that are meant to sleep 5 larger than a standard room? I know the extra bed is a murphy so that would allow us to keep it stored unless we are sleeping.

Rooms are the same size no matter what.

Would they have to accommodate us by giving us two rooms or changing resorts? I am hesitant to book it online because I do not want them to say im screwed after the fact. I would think they would have to accommodate my entire party if it is allowing me to book it online. Does anyone have any insight into this?
Yes, I booked BW Inn room for 5 and when we arrived we were given a BW Villa studio that slept 4. The manager brought us an aerobed for our 5th person. I was told they were over sold, that was that, nothing else was available. Most likely you're room will work out ok. Don't assume if it doesn't 2 rooms or an upgrade would be offered.

The sleeping space for the 5th person in Alligator Bayou rooms is not a Murphy bed, it's a trundle bed.

It is a small, thin surface that slides under the bed; it is not a bed that pulls down from the wall.

We did stay in an Alligator Bayou room with the trundle bed. DS slept on it for one night but it was pretty uncomfortable.

We also stayed in a Casitas suite at CSR that had a Murphy bed. They put us there for one night when we checked in (had added a day on to the beginning of our trip on a separate reservation, IIR) but moved us the next day to a regular room in the area we'd requested. The suite was two rooms put together and felt really huge. It had a King bed in one room and the Murphy bed in another and I think a chair that folded out to a twin bed. (I could be wrong about that but I know for sure there was a King and a Murphy.)

It used to be a trundle bed, but now they are Murphy beds. This was changed during the last refurbishment.

Under the tv in the cabinet. That isn't all storage space anymore.

There are three large drawers under the seating area that supports the murphy bed.

What dates are you trying to go? Is it during a very busy time?

Interesting! I would be curious to see a picture of one if anyone has one. Are they relatively comfortable?

Thank you. That looks a little more substantial than the trundle.

Does it block the pathway in the room when it's open?

You couldn't get a stroller through the space, but you can walk past it like to go to the bathroom.

Hmmm... even when the bed is not open it looks like that bench sticks kinda far out. Now I am worried I won't be able to fit a wheel chair thru there to get to the bathroom. Does anyone know if that would be possible?

Also I will be going memorial day week so I guess it is considered a pretty busy time.
