    My family of 4 would like to stay at Port Orleans Riverside. Could I book a room with a murphy bed so that the children could have their own beds?

    Hi Deborah,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. We’re also a family of four, and we really loved Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. It’s a beautiful resort with lots of unique activities; we loved wandering the grounds and cooling off in the super fun Ol’ Man Island pool!

    I’m right there with you on trying to find a room that allows my children to have their own beds, and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside worked for us because select rooms do have fold-down beds. Be sure to request a room in the Alligator Bayou section of the resort, as these are the only rooms at that resort with that feature. While your request cannot be guaranteed, the room assigners do their very best to sprinkle pixie dust on your trip so you can be comfortable and well-rested.

    Deborah, the reservations number is (407) 939-1936. While on the phone, ask the Cast Member to make a note on your reservation that you would like to stay in the Alligator Bayou section and would like to request a room with a fold-down bed. If you already have a reservation, I suggest calling the reservations number again to ask to have that request added to your file.

    An added bonus of staying at Disney’s Port Orleans Resorts is that you get access to both Riverside and French Quarter. Make sure you explore both sides of the resort, and both pools, as they are very different in their features and theming. While you’re over at French Quarter, be sure to pop in to Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory and try their legendary beignets. They would make Tiana proud!

    Have a magical vacation!
