HI, we just change our ressies to AKL. Due to an accident a few months ago, that left me with a gimp arm, I've requested a HA room. I would prefer to have a roll in shower for safety as I can't grab for anything if I start to wobble. Does anyone know where these are located. My ressie's for a standard view (the only type available)

DH and I were in a HA room at the WL, #1143 had a king bed and roll in shower. I don't know how that happened, I didn't request a HA room for us. I did request for mom, but not this same trip or resort, but I did enjoy not having to step up into a tub, I felt safer in the shower. I have a tendency to fall in the tub (only at home so far).

They are in various places.
There are 2 types of accessible rooms. One type has a tub with grab bars. The other type is fully accessible with roll in showers. They should have called Special Reservations to block a room for you. If you don't know what type of room they booked for you, you can check with Special Reservations - the number is in the disABILITIES FAQs thread (if you booked with a travel agent, you will need to have the travel agent check for you).

What size of room?
We gave stayed in fully accessible 1 bedroom villas 4 times. They were all lock offs. I think (but am not sure) that all of the 1 bedrooms are lock offs and that they are scattered to be in all the buildings. I don't remember the room numbers, but we have stayed in The Springs twice (actually in the same room) and also in 2 different buildings in Congress Park.

I just wanted to say, thanks for everyone for keeping this thread up. I started it, and fully intended to continue to update the first post, but life just gets in the way. Even though hubby still uses an ECV in the parks, we no longer need a fully accessible room because he can now get in and out of tubs just fine since his knee replacement. We have decided that 1st floor rooms are our main objective as dealing with elevators is a pain with the ECV, and we can usually get that with just a regular room request through CRO. Also after our Free Dining trip at POP in just 9 days, all of our future trips will be at Fort Wilderness in our new T@B camper :-)

I've stayed in fuly accessible 1bedrooms in the Springs and Grandstand sections. (I'll be in a dedicated 2bedroom and studio in a couple weeks.)

My Springs room was 3525 and located in the direct center of the building where the elevators are. I was ground level. My view was of the lake/pond between the two buildings there. I saw swans floating by every morning.

The room had a roll-in shower with flipdown bench. With the 1bedrooms you also get a separate 2nd sink area outside next to the spa tub. The beds are a decent 20" height rather than the high 26". You do lose the breakfast counter space though they do include the chairs. I have no idea why. You also don't have that window between the spa and bed, it's a solid wall.

We parked my dad's ECV in the living room by the lock-off connecting door and my powerchair against the jacuzzi wall for overnight charging.

My Grandstand room was 8125, in the same location of the building as my Springs room. Pretty much a mirror image. My view was of a small courtyard, the golf course and the resort in the distance. I saw a lot of ducks and even had one join me for breakfast one morning. He just walked up to me from the courtyard.

Grandstand is the first stop on the bus route so it was easier for traveling with two powered devices. We always had empty busses.

Here's a resort map so you can see where we were. I have a feeling we'll be on a higher floor for the 2bedroom.

If you only need space to put the ECV, you can get any room as long as it's first floor. Just go ahead and request first floor on medical reasons (speak to special reservations)

If you need more than that (rails, rollinshower); ask about that also. Room 3107 is a room with roll in, in North Trinidad.

Anyone have any more info on AKL, both savannah vew rooms and concierge? If I read correctly, those rooms are big enough to fit 3 adults, even when needing a roll in shower, is that correct? How about the beds?

We are staying at AKL next month in a HC accessible room with a roll-in shower, standard view. I understand there are 2 queen beds, but not sure.

Thnx for the reply Suzanne. I was getting the run around about it "begin 2 queens" and "no, its a king and pull out". Didn't like it very much, because I had my heart set on the AKL. So yesterday, I decided to call the AKL itself. I had to talk to 3 different persons before getting somebody that could help me, but I finally got the answer!

The handicapped accessible rooms at AKL are both a king and roll out AND 2 queens. Just like with the views you can put a request in for either, and with special requests actually blocking a room when you book, you should be able to know what you get right then and there. When I explained it was for medical reasons that a roll out wouldn't do in our case (all three of us got reumatoid diseases and sleeping on a roll out would aggrevate the pain), I was put at ease. No problem, just make sure they know about that and as long as it's still available SR will get you the 2 queen beds room.

CL rooms with roll in showers

We are starting to plan our next trip and I wanted to know the bed sizes in the CL rooms with a roll in shower, what type of views do they have etc... Anyone have any favorite resorts for a HA Concierge room???? We are trying to narrow down where to stay based on what the best place for us will be.
It will be me my DH and my DD who is 21 years old and needs the roll in shower. I would appreciate any advice or opinions.
