POR new beds

Has anyone heard much about the new mattresses being very hard and uncomfortable?

Murphy Beds

The murphy beds are 63 inches long and they recommend no older than 9, but we are a short family with three members under 63 inches (though not under nine). Is the age recommendation mainly for length or are the murphy beds fine if your short enough? Like sleeping in a sleeping bag, which is usually 20-25inches wide.

Anyone under about 5'3" should be fine, my DD was 5'2.5" last time she slept in one and was fine.

That's great. How old is your daughter? My 14 year old son is 5'3" and my 11 year old daughter is 4'6".

We stayed in a royal room last month, and yes, the beds were very hard. To put it in perspective, our bed at home is a pillow top and we have a gel topper on it, so our bed at home is super squishy. The POR beds felt so hard in comparison, but it only really bothered us on the first night. After that we were so exhausted that we had no trouble sleeping

What "new" WDW site? I've looked recently and it only shows the mansion rooms and royal guest rooms--no AB rooms photo'd.

hmmmm...I thought I saw AB pics last month when we booked. Maybe I'm confusing it with pics from somewhere else. Sorry

Another online check in question (sorry!) We are a family group travelling together with three rooms. Is there somewhere to comment when checking in online to note that we would like the three rooms as close together as possible? Cheers!

I'm in Australia so don't really want to call if I can avoid it. The rooms seem linked under the one booking when I log into the disney site, so I'm wondering if that will help too?
