    Is there any way to guarantee a room in the alligator bayou section. That is really the only reason we would want to stay at Port Orleans. The other rooms don't appeal to us in that resort. We are a party of 5.


    My understanding is that the only rooms equipped with the bunk-size, pull-down bed that would allow for a 5th person in your room are rooms located in the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside. Keep in mind that the bunk is not as long as a regular bed and is intended for a child. The Murphy-style bed looks like a bench with padded seat that transforms into a bed, a step-up from the roll-away mats similar to school mats the resort used to have.

    Just to make sure, add a note to your reservation requesting the Alligator Bayou section, but I don't think it will be necessary.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
