While we are a family of 3, so space isn't an issue for us, I think there needs to be more affordable options for families of 5 and more. At the very least guaranteed adjoining rooms if booked that way.

I agree with that. I originally was going to stay at POR and the mansion section was the only one I wanted. Plus Disney should actually show what the AB rooms look like in their Preferred Room Photos since ALL POR preferred rooms are in Alligator Bayou. Weird.

I would like to see more of the Murphy beds (like AoA) rather than fold out couches (for both size & comfort). I think it would also be great to have 2 sleeper chairs rather than one pull out couch in most resorts to more easily accommodate groups that don't want to share beds but really don't need a second room.

I also think that resort QS should have very early hours (6ish). Early risers shouldn't have to wait until 7:30 to get breakfast, especially on checkout days when people really need to grab a bite and head to the airport.

Definitely more options for families to have separate spaces with real beds, no pullouts. Like the kid suites at Universal.

smoke-free outdoor benches

It seemed as if most, if not all, of the benches were designated smoking areas...BC, POP, and AoA come to my mind immediately. It's disgusting to be sitting on the only available bench on the Boardwalk by the BC and a smoker walk over and light up, forcing me to immediately get up and leave so my asthma won't act up.

I know Disney makes the best outdoor areas designated smoking areas to encourage smokers to use them, but it is still disgusting considering it is a family resort.

I also like the idea of at least a basic fitness room at all the resorts. Why shouldn't the POP have at least a weight room?

I interpreted the OP's question as ideas of the design and/or theming of an entirely new resort, so I was thinking something winter-like? I guess a spinoff of Blizzard Beach with snow themed common areas, play "igloos" in the pools, snowmen along walking paths, stuff like that. Speciality hot chocolate flavors could be served in whatever counter or table service restaurants the resort has, as well as many varieties of soup and cookies. Not sure how often people would be hot chocolate or soup in the summer in FL, but they might to go along with the resort's theming! Disney has all of the beach theming and island theming down, so even though an actual blizzard would be unlikely to happen in FL, it would be interesting to stay in a blizzard themed resort!

And in this resort, I would make sure many connecting rooms are available and would be guaranteed when guests request them. Handicapped rooms would also be readily available, including some that are also connecting since I know many larger families that have one disabled child that need those accommodations that can't always be filled because of their large family.
