    I will be visiting WDW and staying at the Port Orleans Riverside with my husband, 2 teenagers and an 8 yo. We will use the trundle bed for the youngest child, do you think the room will be spacious enough.

    Hi Fancy,

    Thanks for your question!  We stayed at Port Orleans Riverside with my family of five last October and found that it just wasn't quite spacious enough for us.  The resort itself is very nice, and our room was very clean and nicely decorated. For families of four or less I would recommend it.  I found trundle bed to be very small, and the mattress is quite thin.  It is not raised off the floor at all, which didn't thrill me.  If you go to the website you will be able to find pictures of these trundles so you can see what I'm talking about.

    So, what did we do?  We actually moved over to Coronado Springs Resort and got connecting rooms.  It cost us a bit more, but the extra space was more than worth it.  The rooms at Coronado Springs have queen beds unlike the double beds at Port Orleans Riverside. 

    Another option you could consider would be one of the family suites at the All Star Music resort.  Those would nicely accommodate your party of 5.

    I hope this was helpful!
