Unfortunately, she does not think the murphy bed would suit any of my nephews. The 2 year old has not graduated to a big boy bed yet and my 5 year old twin nephews, she doesn't feel that the murphy would work for them either....

Her plan was to have the twins share a queen size and have a pack n play in the room for the 2 year old.

Could we request MB instead and a pack n play for her family?? Would Disney have a problem with MB instead of AB because they are a family of 5?

I thought I had everything sorted out.....

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the murphy beds are rather low when down, and you can request rails. Seems like it would be OK for a 2 year old, you could even put something on the floor; pillows or a blanket, just in case. But I do understand that everyone has different levels of comfort.

the pack & play will work and you don't need to be in AB, as someone else mentioned, since one child is under 3.

Talking

Thanks AmyKat and Yellowstonetim

I was hoping it wouldn't be a big deal!!
Honestly, I think my sis would rather stay in MB rather than AB...and doesn't' want to say it....but it's just a feeling....

thanks again!!!

That would really surprise me, as it would be a) more expensive, and b) cut into the accessory sales from Merchandise.
But then again, I don't understand why they overnight bands to families that are not leaving for a month?

Subscribing....just returning from 10 days at POFQ....just reserved a few days at POR with my mom! Can't wait to learn everything I can! It looked beautiful when we would sometimes pass it on the bus!

Joining in since we have a very tentative trip book for President's Week at POR. We're trying to take advantage of a free dining pin, but may have to move our reservation to April or the summer if things don't fall into place.

Since we're not sure if our oldest will be coming, I wanted to book a room that fit 5. I've booked AB, preferred.

Out last stay at POR was in 2007 and we had mixed feelings about the resort.
We loved:
- the food court
- the peace and quiet
- the CM's

We were not crazy about:
- the size of the resort/ how far away our room was from the main building: I took care of that by booking preferred (there was no preferred category back when we went)
- the overall theme/ decor of our room: I was very excited when they redid them; loved the new look; hopefully the bedding and fridge situations will be resolved before we go

*** One thought about the bedding. I've been looking at photos from other resorts that have the white sheets w/ the runner. They actually look pretty nice. My favorites are the Poly and Coronado, but even the beds at All Star Sports look nice with the runner. I can't imagine that WDW would add a touch like this to the values but leave a moderate with only the plain white sheets. Only time will tell I guess.

Oh, and the runners on the Sports beds look just like the comforters that were there before. I wouldn't be surprised if the POR comforters are being repurposed.

Yeah me either. But they did mention it would cost more for the themed ones like pirates, tink, etc.

Same with ours from earlier this month. 2716 is a connecting room and it says it is not.

We were just their earlier in October. The Murphy bed was a pretty standard bed height to me. We had our 5 year old sleep in it, but put some pillows along side her to prevent her from rolling out. I would not have let my 2.5 year old sleep in it without rails.

OK, that makes more sense. Upgrade your band for a mere $8 ea. before you arrive. Money in the bank, LOL.
