Just so I understand, are you going to be comfortable in two doubles, even with the rollaway? I would not be comfortable sharing a double bed with my wife for 5 nights (I could maybe do 2 if I had to). Or maybe you’ve figured out a way to avoid that?
I, too would prefer to share with the kids or make them share with each other rather than go to the two doubles.
If that doesn’t work, I’d pay the extra $200/night for a King + 2 doubles. Just what I would do, not saying you should!
Yes, welcome to the Forum! You know what’s best for your family so take this for what it’s worth - but I’d foot the extra $200 so I could have two bathrooms and also a separate room if the kids are asleep earlier than we are.
But if you are used to one room/bathroom for that long (and everyone will likely be so tired every day anyway), and the dollars are more important, than do the alcove!
I’m cheap when it comes to hotel rooms, and would just do the $90. We are a family of 5, and almost always squeeze into a standard room. Even though the kids don’t like sharing a bed, we make them deal with it (rotating who sleeps alone on the couch/pullout/rollaway).
We stayed on points in a standard double room at the Dolphin in 2021.
It just depends on where your money is best spent. If a larger room/ more sleeping surfaces is more satisfying than an add-on experience, or nicer meal, or merch - do what works for your family.
I second this! We stayed in a Swan King with sofa bed. I could easily see the sofa bed utilized and a roll-away fitting into these rooms. I’m not sure about the 2 queens. I couldn’t imagine doing a double bed with DH for 5 nights. We just stayed at my uncle’s camp in Grand Isle. We stayed in a double bed for 1.5 nights then DH took the sofa. Too cramped! I need a good nights sleep.
If I understand correctly you would be moving to Dolphin instead of Swan with the Alcove room upgrades right? Originally at Swan?
We have stayed in basic rooms at both Swan and Dolphin. Agree with other comments about sharing a double bed for two adults but it could be done. We have also done the one parent with each kid in a double bed situation before. At Swan I was with two kids and my sister in law and we had one adult and one kid per bed which was quite comfortable with queen beds. I also have Bonvoy Gold and was upgraded from no view to resort view.
In my experience, the room size at Dolphin was quite spacious, more than Swan, which is why they allow a rollaway. I would urge you to also consider the bathroom comparison however. At Dolphin there was only one small vanity/sink and a tiny toilet/shower bathroom so small you couldn’t even open the door fully (it hit the tub). At Swan you get a vanity/sink outside the bathroom and a good-sized bathroom with another sink.
I would also ask if you would have to pay double resort fee for the two-room option or if they already included that in the $200.
