    Stayed AKL standard room in 2011. Looking to save $ and stay at POFQ since we aren't in the room that much. I see that rooms are smaller. 2 adults, 2 teens. will we feel too cramped? will rollaway fit or be available so teen son & daughter can have own

    Hi Chris! If your family is in the parks from morning to late evening, I think staying in a moderate resort instead of a deluxe one is a great way to save a little money. The Animal Kingdom Lodge rooms are actually only about 30 square feet larger than the rooms at the Port Orleans French Quarter so you may not notice a big difference in size. Rooms at both resorts have two queen beds, but my understanding is that now that the Port Orleans French Quarter has larger beds in the rooms, rollaway beds are no longer available. I have a son and a daughter too, and when my family stays in a room with only two beds, we often put the girls in one bed and the guys in the other so the siblings don't have to share a bed. Some people bring an inflatable air mattress to provide an extra bed. The other option you may want to consider is to reserve a room at the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside, where Murphy beds are available in addition to the two queen beds. The Murphy beds are on the smaller side, but if your kids aren't super tall, the Murphy bed would accommodate one of them.
