My husband (6' tall) fit...kinda. At least that is where he slept when dd wouldn't have any more "sleeping on the floor with the bugs". However, aren't they doing away with the trundle...it is now a murphy bed sort of thing below the TV? At least in the refurbished rooms?

I think "kinda" is the operating word here. I am 5'2 and it was uncomfortable for me. Your husband is a kind man to say that he could sleep on there. I bet he absolutely hated it. I hated smelling the floor...

I love him...but honestly he is not the most "you first" sort of guys. Believe me, if he was not comfortable there he would not have slept there. He is thin though... and I think that made it a bit easier to fit onto the narrow mattress. I am with you though... YUK on smelling the floor.

And there's also the factor that after a day walking around WDW, most people could probably sleep on a bed of rocks!

I L-O-V-E POR
We always stayed out DVC resorts with our points for the most part but one thanksgiving our "home" resort was booked so we picked POR. To this day it sticks out in my mind as my favorite resort. The scenic river running through the resort, the beautiful moss covered trees and old plantation style hotel complexes. This is a beautiful resort. I hope to visit to take a few photos with my new camera next week when I visit

If anyone has a laptop with them, or other web-enabled device, could you take a few moments to try www.speedtest.net and see what sort of speed you're getting via the wi-fi?

Hope that helps!

Thanks, not too shabby for free public wi-fi I guess, but not too speedy either (especially upstream).

My home results, using the equivalent Android speedtest.net app and my home broadband wi-fi for comparison, are: 44ms ping, 18.342 Mb/s upload, 2.024 Mb/s upload.

So there's still a bit of room for improvement...
