Liesl asked if there was a way to guarantee getting a room with a murphy bed at Port Orleans - Riverside.. and there IS. ALL of the Alligator Bayou rooms feature the murphy beds. If they book a PREFERRED ROOM, they will be placed in one of 4 bldgs - 14, 15, 18, or 27 - all of which are in Alligator Bayou. Booking a Preferred room guarantees the murphy bed (and is listed as such on the WDW reservation site>)

For Paul's questions about accommodations for 5 people - I would either A.- rent DVC points or B.- consider a PREFERRED room at Port Orleans Riverside. Port Orleans Riverside Preferred rooms offer 2 Queen beds + murphy bed.

For Angie from Wisconsin - Although Cape Canveral is a great place to visit.. you need to realize that it costs about $55/adult and $45/child to go there. Depending on what time your flight is, you may not have enough time to really get your money's worth, so Downtown Disney or visiting one of the resorts for a meal might be a better option for you.
