The Murphy beds are only in the Alligator Bayou section.

Sorry, but as the FAQ in the first post says:

All of the rooms with the murphy beds are located in the Alligator Bayou section, and they all have the same decor (although it's still quite fun, if you take a look at the photo in post #5).

Thanks! I read that some rooms had been recently renovated and just wanted to make sure that nothing had changed. Seems like the Murphy Beds would serve a better purpose for young kids in the Royal Guest rooms. :0/

I'm currently booked at AoA but would like to switch to a Mod if Free Dining is offered. Trying to decide between POR RG Rooms or a Pirate room at CBR. The Murphy Bed would have sealed the deal for sure! Not ruling out POR just yet though. :0)

Keep in mind, the pirate rooms are really far away from the main building at CBR! That is why we chose a RGR at POR! Plus, our girls are really into princesses right now!

However, the royal guest rooms are for occupancy of 4, so they only come with two beds.

AB is for occupancy of 5, so the murphy bed was added in lieu of the previous trundle bed that was on the floor.

Question

Seriously contemplating a switch from AoA-LM to a POR Royal Guest room for our early June stay. It's likely to be our family's one and only trip to the World (though everyone who I tell that to laughs and says "that's what *you* think!").

I saw that the Royal Guest rooms are housed in buildings 90 and 95-- I'd like to avoid the smoking area... is that something I should put in a request? Any other tips for staying in that area of the resort?

Thanks for helping a newbie!

You can ask to be placed in an area where you do not have to walk through the smoking areas.

Depending on what level booking category you pick, some of the RR's can be a bit of a hike. I would choose garden view if you can, and request the Oak Manor. Parterre Place does have some remote rooms at the standard view level, but the garden, waterview and riverview are nicely located.

All of the buildings and rooms are non-smoking. There are outdoor designated smoking locations dotted around, but they won't affect you in your room at all.

To reduce the amount of walking, the Pool View Royal Rooms are all very well located for easy access to the main building (they are all on the closest side of Oak Manor, except for one room in Parterre Place which is even closer).

I knew that the rooms were non-smoking-- sorry I wasn't clear. I was referring to the smoking area outside. Would rather not walk through that to get to buses, etc.

Would you go to the main building for buses or to the east depot? I was planning on a garden view Royal Guest room as opposed to a river view Royal Guest room... at least for now!

Thanks for your help!!

She is referring to walking through smoke designated areas to get to the room.

Many people who have highly sensatized allergies to smoke, even second hand, have issues walking through areas that are smoking areas. Since one may be walking there several times a day, it would be good to have a room where they could avoid them.

Especially people who suffer from asthma.

Officially paid the trip off today! 52 days to go!

Can anyone explain to me the benefits of checking in online? The website tells me I can do it now, but I'm not sure what the reason to do this would be.

We leave for POR in less than 24 hours! Let's hope this snowstorm doesn't delay us. :-) Can't wait another day to relax at our favorite resort.

My experience has been that the on-line check in line at the resort is usually very short if there is a line at all. Last year we arrived at 11:00 and our room was ready for us. I do it because I feel it's one less thing to do(and it gives me something to check off )

completely agree that they should have put Murphy beds in the royal rooms. We would love to stay in one, but not enough to pay for 2 rooms.
