I can't imagine for the life of me why they would remove all of the wall-mounted benches from the roll-in showers.
Page 1 of this thread, post #19 @FortForever posted a picture of the table bed in the lowered position with an ECV parked between the bed and the window.Just checking in to see if anyone has photos of a renovated accessible room at POP with two Queen beds and roll in shower. That is what we have reserved for our November trip. Those mesh benches that Bill posted a photo of have me worried and also how tight the room will be with the table bed pulled down.
Thank you! That post and others in the thread provided exactly the info I was looking for. However, now I am even more worried about that mesh bench. I hope they can provide a sturdier one for us upon request.Page 1 of this thread, post #19 @FortForever posted a picture of the table bed in the lowered position with an ECV parked between the bed and the window.
And for the record, I'm not a fan of those mesh "benches" (more like torture slings) that we see at POP right now. Everyone who stays there - and doesn't like them - needs to let POP Management know why they don't work (and Disability Services as well). They have zero incentive to change those back to wall-mounted fold down benches unless they *know* there is a problem.
@Judy Carter - you might want to make a new post, and ask your question there; you may get more answers since this thread is for hotel room info. Start at the main DISabilities page, and then on the right hand side, look for the dark blue box that says "Post New Thread". That way, you will get the best possible response to your questions!Thank you for sharing your Disneyland experience as a quadriplegic. My husband is a quadriplegic in Massachusetts and we are relocating to the villages in Central Florida. My husband is 62 and test never has never been to Disney World and his life. I was so excited to read your blog and see that it is possible for him 2 enjoy and experience Disney World for himself as a quadriplegic.
Can you please tell me do you use a regular slide board or is there something special that is used to enable you to get on the rides
This shower set up at Pop Century looks even worse than what I had. Who would put the shower seat around a tight turn into the shower. You can't even get close the the front of the seat for a transfer.Here is a link to a thread on the Resorts Forum with several pictures of the recently refurbished POP rooms. This is a new wheelchair accessible 2 queen bed room with roll-in shower. Many thanks to poster @RaySharpton for sharing.
@BillSears isn't that basically the same setup as at POFQ and POR? Or do you think it's narrower between the front edge of the seat, and the wall? Without measuring, it looks like the shower has approximately the same length, and maybe the same size door opening, but the width is smaller than POFQ/POR?
I posted, here in this thread, with pictures from our trip in 2016.Anyone have any information on rooms at the Poly with a roll-in shower? I've seen some photos of tub bathrooms but was wondering. It's our first visit to WDW (eee!) and I requested a 2-bedroom, 1 daybed room with roll-in shower.
OK - I spaced out and totally missed your reply - so I'm sorry!It's a weird stall for WDW, I don't think I've seen this type yet. The actual shower area has a turn to get into it. In the area with the seat there are 3 walls surrounding it instead of the big opening for mys roll-in showers. The sink is inside the same area as the toilet and shower. Normally Disney has these sinks outside of the bath area. I suspect this is the arrangement in the 2 queen bed rooms instead of the rooms with 1 king bed.
It looks like it. I've only been in the king sized rooms so I haven't seen it but this layout looks like the Pop rooms with 2 beds.OK - I spaced out and totally missed your reply - so I'm sorry!
(with apologies to Andre' at PortOrleans.org, I "amended" his floorplan layout to show what a 2Q HARIS (Handicapped Accessible Roll In Shower) room at POR/POFQ looks like)

Is this the bathroom layout they are using at POP, where the bench is attached to the "divider" wall?
Does the King HARIS at POFQ have a different bathroom layout? I confess, I have never stayed in a King HARIS at WDW anywhere because I always have a family member willing to tag along!It looks like it.

Yes it does. It has a much bigger roll-in shower.Does the King HARIS at POFQ have a different bathroom layout? I confess, I have never stayed in a King HARIS at WDW anywhere because I always have a family member willing to tag along!
