    Question from 10/14/2016, asking if answer is still accurate Q: Can you get a rollaway for the Little Mermaid Rooms in AofA? Thinking of staying and there are 4 of us but kids don't sleep well together in double beds. A: Yes—still accurate? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney, Amy! Your upcoming visit to Disney's Art of Animation Resort this fall sounds like it will be better than anything on land. The Little Mermaid Standard Rooms are one of my favorite places to stay! In Ariel's words, the theming is neat, and the amenities at the resort are excellent. You can spend your time devoted to floating at the pool. These rooms accommodate up to four people, so let's see what sleeping arrangements are allowed at the resort.

    I spoke to an undersea Cast Member who told me rollaway beds are not allowed in those rooms due to Florida fire and safety codes. A cot or even an air mattress would be an exit hazard in an emergency, so utilizing the beds in those rooms is your only option.

    Another option at this resort is to book a family suite. These rooms sleep up to six people, and best of all, they have two full bathrooms. In addition, each suite has a living room and kitchenette. I've stayed in these suites on big family trips, and the extra space is fantastic. If you'd be interested in a different resort, several Disney Resort Hotels offer a fifth sleeper which might solve your problem. I recently stayed at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort on a ladies' trip and slept on the sleeper. I can vouch that it's pretty comfy!

    Amy, I hope you find that wonderful things surround you on your upcoming visit! Please stop by planDisney anytime! We know how to wail here!

    Magic awaits,
