If you're going to say that there are 10 king rooms out of 2,800, I'm going to say you're full of crap.

Funny that you mention Animal Kingdom Lodge, because that was my first choice. They only had savanna rooms left when I booked, and seeing as how the animals are out for a limited amount of time, and I wouldn't be in the room much, I couldn't justify the expense. I'll pay for a nice room at RPR because of the short park hours and I know I'll spend time there.

That's an issue for me too. I splurged for the honeymoon, but next time we're staying value or low-end middle tier. For the little to no time spent in the hotel it's not really worth it to spend $250+ per night to me.

If you're going to say that there are 10 king rooms out of 2,800, I'm going to say you're full of crap.

And you'd be right. Here is the breakdown:


Q: What is the room mix?
King Bed Accessible 63
King Bed Typical 81
Dbl/Dbl Bed Accessible 115
Dbl/Dbl Bed Typical 2621

Still, not very many. On top of that, they cannot be reserved at the Value resorts, only requested. At the Moderates, they can be reserved, but at extra cost.

^^ Okay, so I was off by the exact number, but the theory is correct: a LOT of rooms, very few of which are king rooms. 5% out of 2800 is not a lot. The point is, I knew that the king rooms were scarce going in, so it didn't bother me when one wasn't available.

What's an order of magnitude between friends, eh?

At the end of the day, though, Disney's primary market is families with younger children. King bedded rooms don't sell too well to that market.
