Port Orleans Mansion Royal accessible room

I found this posted on a thread on the Resorts Board

Both types have an 'open plan' washroom area, with the shower/tub, a single basin, and the toilet all within the same large room which has a sliding door separating it from the main sleeping area:



Because this layout removes the space for the shelf and hanging rail from the wash area, these rooms also feature an extra armoire-style wardrobe in the main bedroom area. Also, to allow more space between the queen-size beds, the recessed alcove next to the entrance doorway is 'bumped-out' to give a flat wall, and thus slightly more floor space (although no option for a connecting doorway to the next room).



The exact locations of all of the Accessible rooms are listed in my floorplan layouts which you can view by clicking on any of the accommodation buildings in the maps at www.portorleans.org/maps-and-directions.php

help

Does anyone know about the disabled rooms at the Yacht Club. We got a killer deal for late august, and normally we stay at Port Orleans but this is the first time I will need a shower that will enable me to walk in.

What do you want to know? Roll in showers are available at all resorts, so also at YC.

Dus yc on a split stay end of 2011, had a standard view room with roll in shower.

Yc

Just need to make certain that they have them available with queen beds. My son will be staying in my room (he is 43) and I don't want them to think we are a couple and give a king.

You will want to specify this to your tastes or cm when booking. By now they book room that specifies type of accessibility AND type of bedding. Things can happen and I Could see where 2 adults will then be a lieden priority to for instance 3, but if not booking right odds are bad.

And yes, this combi is available. Been in it.

Jambo house HA studio?

Anyone have info or pics on the HA rooms (studios) in Jambo House? We stayed in a HA room at Kidani in January but decided to try Jambo for the next trip for something different...and hoping that there isn't QUITE as much walking required to get to the room. (Those LONG Kidani hallways can be killers and room requests just don't seem to get much attention lately.) Can you give me an idea how similar or different the HA studios are from one to the other? Room locations? Pictures would be greatly appreciated too. Thanks so much!

All-Star Sports

Can anyone tell me about the king/double rooms at All-Star Sports that have roll-in showers? Does anyone have pictures or a room layout? I'm just wondering, with both beds in those small rooms will there still be room for a wheelchair or ECV to manuver. Thanks!

When we stayed at All-Star Sports in 2010, we had an ECV and an Electric wheelchair in the room. We started out in a king room and then moved to a double bed room... There was definitely more maneuvering room in the king room, but were still able to get both in the double room.... it was tight but doable. Sorry didn't take any pictures. HTH

I would upload photos for the rooms, but if you stayed in the HA king roll in shower, just picture a connected double double, same room number. I needed this combo last year but did not have the option, I had to pay for two double doubles, with one HA room.
I. Could not bunk a 16 with me and the handicap person could not sleep with others. Not sure on the cost of the room as it was a package.

It was at the rear of the resort very far from the food court. The computer pool and parking lot where close by. If you walked around the outside parking past the 90's you could get to the bus stop easier. I ended up driving with the mobility equipment needs.

I stayed in 3510 in Saratoga Springs. I really loved it. I was big enough for my daughter's wheelchair. The dining area was a little tight. Overall, it was very nice. Loved the pool and the lift chair into the pool.

Video tour of our preferred Accessible 1 King + 1 Double at Sports in April - http://youtu.be/HM4UjW1bG4Y
That's not a public video.

Message me if you have questions about it, but I think the video will show you what you need to know.
