I would like to see more handicapped rooms in the resorts per building. It's really difficult when there are only 5 rooms available with a roll-in shower - and they all have king beds. My husband does not visit Disney. I don't want to share a bed with the relative or friend who is with me.

Wake up, hotel owners. All handicapped people do not have a spouse who loves Disney.

Thanks for listening.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking but ...
I'd like to see them stop doing the loud pool parties during the afternoons ... I don't see why they need to have DJ's screaming into a microphone and blasting the music so loud (save the loud music for the Parks). Some people like to come back to the resorts in the early afternoon and just chill for while.

All resorts should have a fitness center.

More realistic options for a family of 7 (2 adults, 5 younger kids) like more opportunity to getting connecting rooms, etc.

I know we are the odd larger family. But I see questions about connecting rooms constantly and that seems to be a reasonable request when reserving a year ahead at rack rates

I wish that you could get guaranteed connecting rooms at any resort.

And loyalty discounts based on the number of previous onsite stays.

This, and I second more moderate choices for a family of 5 (or even larger). It is nice to see more hotels offering a sleeper sofa option finally.

I agree with a pp that suggest having larger rooms for bigger families.

They do - 4 theme parks with miles of walking trails and 2 water parks with a million stair steps each!

I'd rather walk or jog up a staircase with a water slide at the top then stare at a wall for 30 minutes while exercising on a StairMaster!

I know this isn't what you meant - I'm just being silly. I'm so tired from enjoying the parks that going to the "gym" is the last thing on my mind!

If the pictures of the CBR Refurb that were posted a while back are accurate, it looks like CBR will have a fold down bed like AB section of POR.

I agree with this, for sure. This is very important to me, and missing it for anything beyond a week starts to really have a negative impact.


I would also suggest more "bookable" categories. You should be able to BOOK, mansions section rooms at POR. Ranchos or Cabanas at CSR. Etc. Some of these are deal breakers for guests. On our last trip we wanted Mansions section POR and had NO interest in AB section.
