No the beds are mad so they go to the floor, no underneath space at all.

I can only draw from my own experience, but we were in the end room of bldg 2 on the ground floor and never knew that there was anyone else there. No stair noise (we were adjacent to the rear stairwell), no noise from the stairwell door slamming, no hallway noise, no adjacent room noise. Our windows faced the rear of the building. We found it to be very quiet.

Here now. There is tons of space. There is one of those suitcase stands behind the door in the bedroom. My suitcase is being used for laundry and is one the floor on the other side of the tv from the first one above. Third is standing upright in the space between nightstand and the bathroom wall with more than enough room for another on there. In LK suite and there is a ton of storage as well.

We are in a LM room... We are used to it always stay in small hotel rooms, just usually for shorter trips so we bring less stuff. sure will be snug though!

We have 4--- 2 small and 2 large. As someone else said there's a suitcase stand, "closet" shelf, and there's a good 4 or so feet of floor space between tv and bathroom that we've used for suit cases. Also some space between the second bed and the wall. You'll be good!!

If your suitcases are different sizes and you unpack them completely, you can put the smaller ones inside the bigger ones.

I booked the LM room for one night to see resort before we move to our villa at OKW pre-cruise. One thing I'm concerned about is that I have a foot and ankle injury and severe nerve trauma in that foot and leg. I can't stand long or walk long distances any more. With that, I don't think I can make the walk to the food and pool areas. Wondering if its just not worth it. Kids actually are giving up Halloween to come see this resort. Any thoughts.

How do you plan to get around the parks. There will be much more walking there. You might want to rent a scooter for the whole trip.

We just had four (all adults, nonetheless) in a LM room. Three of us travel together often, so space was not an issue, we are used to working it out.

My suitcase went in the space between the door and the first bed, horizontal against the wall. It tucked in perfectly up near the head of the bed and wasn't in the way of the door or egress. It is a smaller suitcase, rollaboard size, so something longer wouldn't fit there.

We also kept a suitcase near/under the window - first we had a rollaboard there, it fit laying down between the vent area and the doorstop. That was our bag of "misc" stuff, it got moved to under the table chairs (we had to do a bit of rearranging due to staff bringing us a fridge, before they replaced all of them.) So it was vent, two chairs, table, fridge, dresser, all in a row. We put the misc suitcase under the chairs since we didn't need to access it often by that point in the week. My friend put her large-size suitcase standing up under the window.

Friend 3 put her stuff under the octopus hanging rack, plenty of space for it there. Friend 4 kept her stuff between the second bed and the bathroom wall. I didn't see how it all fit there, but I do know she pulled it out into the walkway to access it. She was only there half of the week, and the first half we had NO suitcase access problems, with Friend 2 occupying that same space, so it may have been a personal preference thing.

There is also ample space to the side of the bathroom area, with a rack above for empty suitcases and floor space below. We had far more trouble with counter space near the sink (and again, we all travel together frequently enough to just rearrange as needed, so "trouble" is a relative term.")

We are pretty laid-back travelers, our room is for showering and sleeping, so generally we are either one in shower/one at sink/one in bedroom or everyone in bed, ha ha! We did not feel squashed, but we visit and stay in value rooms regularly (every few months,) so perhaps we are used to it?

A member of our party sprained her ankle days before our trip. She walked on it the first day and then just couldn't anymore. We asked the front desk if there was a wheelchair there that we could use for our stay while at the resort. They gave us one and didn't charge us anything for it (though we imagine they probably should have or at least taken our room number). So you could try asking and seeing if they have one. It was a MK wheelchair, by the way, so the availability at the resort probably fluctuates more than I would have otherwise thought.
