Is there any better place to live than Mickey's backyard?

I need help/information...

We are checking in Friday for the weekend, standard room, club level, and we have requested bunk beds for DS17 and DD12.

However, DS is questioning whether he will fit in the bunk beds - he's just over 6 feet tall - will he?!

If not, can we get a cot or bring an air mattress?? Is there enough room?

What if we end up with two queens instead of the bunkbeds... will we have room for a cot or air mattress so DD & DS don't have to share a bed?

.....he might want to sleep in the top bunk so he doesn't feel so claustrophobic....

From BC lobby, walk past Cape May on your way to the pool. You have to exit into the pool area by Ariel's -- Martha's Vineyard is to your right.

When you open the door to come in from the pool, you're looking right at it!!

Thanks everyone! According to accuweather.com it's showing rain for just about every day Sept 1st-8th. Sure hope you're right about it just being a 30% chance.

We're going over to Universal one day and I am also thinking about surprising my mom with a trip over to check out The Holy Land Experience. Anyone been? Hard to find? Worth the trip? We'll have a rental car and my mom's ECV.

You need to come join us on the DIS for Old Fogies thread! Same as the lasters and a lot of the sparklies, but more of the lack of memory discussions!

We went a few years ago. I am a Christian, DH is not, but we both enjoyed it. The model of Jerusalem is amazing and the whole themeing is pretty impressive. We went from International Drive and went on the bus. I don't think you have trouble finding it. It is also not too far away from the Mall at Millennia so maybe you can combine the two.

Our concern is his height - the top bunk looks to be closed in all around, so I'm guessing that would be worse. It looks like the end of the bottom bunk might be open? Is the ladder movable so maybe we could move it to the side of the bunks giving him a bit more foot room?

Does anyone know if we can get a cot or would have room for an air mattress?

Thanks!

I have used an air mattress - I just put it up by the door - so it is out of the way of everyone - so I didn't get stepped on at night.

I can tell you that our experience with this at Great Wolf Lodge was TERRIBLE! DS13 is 5'11" and couldn't sleep in the bunk bed at all!!! His head and feet touched the closed in parts at the top and bottom. He ended up sleeping on the lumpy pull out sofa. I think I'd call AKL and request a cot. I wouldn't want to take a chance. If you see that you don't need it you can always get them to take it away. The customer service there is SOOOOO WONDERFUL.
