I think it depends on your hair. I have short hair so they work fine for me, but I could see how someone with long and/or thick hair might need more power.

Thank you and have fun!
We are leaving in 24 days for our first Riverside trip--actually the first Disney trip for our 5 youngest--and they don't know yet so I'm getting soooo excited and can't even talk about it!

Yup. On the same layout in post #4 where you saw the hair dryers, the label "Iron & Ironing Board" points to them, hung on the wall under the clothes rail & shelf.

Question: we have paid for a garden view, but I really don't want the hassle of a Murphy bed in the room (we have an 8yo and an 18month old), is this something I can put in my fax or is it something I should call Disney and ask to have noted?

Thanks!
Kathy
Request the mansions.

My concern with the Murphy bed is my 18 month old pulling it down on himself! Lol, just a fear I can see happening.

If I request a mansion is that going to cost me more at check in or are there regular garden rooms there as well as royal rooms? I'd love an upgrade, but sure cant afford it!

Siskaren thanks for the diagram, looking for measurements.

Per the info on post #4 :

Murphy Bed is 63 x 30 .

If you go to post #4 , look for the picture of the Murphy bed with the alligator picture. Under that is a diagram of the room. In that diagram where the Murphy bed is , there is the measurement of the bed.
Hope that helps find it. Have a fun trip!

Just got back from an 8 day stay at Riverside last week and loved it. Although since we had my 5 year old daughter and 1 year old son, I wish we had stayed closer to the main building (we were in building 28, which felt like about of a haul).

About the pull down beds possibly falling open on a child...they open very slowly to avoid that very issue. We had zero issues with those beds. In fact, my daughter thought it was awesome.

Looking at the picture in post #4 it looks like there's locks on the part that pulls down plus he'd have to climb on the bench just to reach it, but I know that you can't discount the ingenuity of a toddler when they want to get to something that's out of reach. However, not all of the mansion rooms are royal rooms (half are, half aren't), so you wouldn't have to get a royal room in order to not have a bayou room.

You have booked a garden room; they are located in both AB and mansions. You can request one or the other, but a request is just a request.

RR's are a booking category and only in the mansions, so you have to book it in order to get it.

If you look on the map on page 1, you will see there are quite a few rooms in Acadian House and Magnolia Terrace with garden view rooms without having to book a RR.

Hope that helps.

Only staying one night Sun June 2, what will the movie be that night (where exactly is the movie, do we need to bring a towel to sit on or is there seating)? Also is there a campfire for smores that night and where can I get the smores kit? tia

The activity schedule including the movie listing is in your packet.

There is no seating, bring a towel to sit on.

There is a campfire, weather-permitting (same as the movies) and you can buy the kit there when you arrive.
