I don't doubt that - but when this thread started, it was about value rooms, not the deluxe resorts (because not everyone can afford deluxe resorts).

Sorry, I didn't see the word "Value" in the first post at all.

I will stay out of it.

I find it interesting that they say it's available Darlene, yet no one online has commented on staying in one (that I can find). It would seem pretty desirable, you know?

That is a good point - and I too can't find info on it and I've tried. Even Allears which is really good with having pictures and info doesn't have anything. Maybe Disney was "testing" it to see if it was an option people wanted - and maybe nobody did. A couple of years ago, Lenny and I would up with a new bed (new everything - frame, box spring, mattress, sheets) in the room so it's very easy for Disney to move things around on short notice so it's possible that they had it in a room or two and promptly moved it out. Either that or it's something they can "make" happen only for those that really want it.

I saw pictures of someone who had a room at Port Orleans Riverside that had 2 queen beds with a roll in shower.

Did someone say that they saw an accessible room with a tub with grab bars? I thought all accessible rooms had roll in showers. I will be traveling with 3 kiddos and need a tub with grab bars. I have to soak in the tub every night after walking so much so can't have a roll in shower but sometimes need help out of the tub and an accessible room would be great if I wind up with an ECV depending on whether or not I am in flare at the time.

Some of the accessible rooms have tubs, some roll-in showers. We prefer the showers, but have gotten the tub rooms the past two times. I don't know if they can promise one over the other. We have a portable grab bar that fastens with extremely strong suction; it's easy to put on and take off and works great getting in and out of the tub. You can buy them at home improvement and larger drug stores.

So far as the king/regular bed question, I see that listed as an option in the value resorts, but we have not actually encounterd one. I don't know where they would put it, frankly, as the rooms are pretty small. A king and a single, yes, but otherwise, I think it would be tight.
