So excited to see that you loved it, we are planning on doing one of the PO resorts in November. We're not married to either one yet, both seem very nice.

The DS and DD don't like sleeping in the same bed, so we will need three beds to work with our group.

Thanks!
It's not, it's actually smaller. The new murphy bed is meant for children 10 or 11 and under. If you do a search, someone posted the actual dimensions of it. Smaller than a twin bed.

It may not be as big. I don't know. However we stayed in November 2011 renovated room and my 14 year old who was 5 ft at the time slept just fine on the Murphy bed.

We have 5 plus infant and we are having desk removed to place stroller and playpens, I am going in 10 days, I will let you know! Luckily my sister is in an adjoining room and she only has 4 but no little ones so if it is too cramped my 6yr old will walk over and stay in her room!

hmmm....we did not have a desk in our room. Just the 2 queen beds, table and chairs, banquet bed and fridge. Oh and a little set of 2 shelves.

We were 6 this past August. we had pour then 3 months old, 6yo triplets dh and I. 2 of our girls fitted on 1 queen which we picked the one closer to bathroom, and they took turns on the little bed. then we had a play pen for the baby.

I put the play pen for my dd right between the wall and the bed closer to the door. We were still able to open the door and all. we folded our stroller every evening and stored it by the table against the wall. We could have used the table and 1 chair if we needed it. If the table and chair are moved, the PPen fits there but it's right in front of the A/C and it gets cold if going in the summer(when we went). that was our first solution but then moved things so that crib could be by the bed which was a bit warmer. Just a thought.

for the person asking about 2 play pen... it is doable if you get the table removed and put 1 crib where the table goes and the other between the wall and bed rcloser to the door but it will be a tight fit.

We're booked in April at POR in AB Preferred room. Can't wait to go back. Had planned on POFQ, but at almost $100 cheaper with the AP rates, we decided to go back to POR. We haven't stayed there in years, but absolutely loved the boat to DTD. Hope to do the carriage ride, too.

We're planning on going in April and was going to ask if our family of 5 will fit ok, but after reading your post....I guess we will, lol.
