Hi. Travelling with 2 teen DD. They will not share a bed. Smaller won’t with anyone. The other will with me, but we are both shy of 6ft and 200 lbs.
We need the following configuration for our stay in WDW in October:
- 1 King w/ solid sofa bed
- Two queens + sofa bed or roll away
We can not do just two queens and the child size beds are too small for the other teen (she is about 5 ft 6 inches), although much thinner then the other two of us.
We would LOVE to stay on a Disney property, but from what I can see, none of them have bedding that work for us. We do not have budget for 1 bedroom villas, family rooms, etc… Need to stay close to $200/$250 per night.
Am considering a couple of Disney Springs Hotels or Club Wyndham Bonnet Creek. Just wanted to see if Coronodo Springs, Caribbean BC, and Port Orleans might have roll-away beds. So hard to find info even with a good Google search.
Thank you all!!!
I find the pull-down beds not that bad …and I’m a 5’9” adult. I slept on one at the Toy Story Hotel in Tokyo. I opted to let the other two people I was staying with have the beds …even though I was the tallest of the bunch.
Also, Disney does not have Roll Away beds per this: https://plandisney.disney.go.com/question/request-roll-away-bed-pofq-398885/
I think your best bet is a family suite at AS Music. It’s 3 queen size beds and with a good discount will be at the upper end of your price range.
We needed 3 beds for 3 adults and chose to stay at the Dolphin in April 2022. My daughter, 5’6” and slim, took the twin-size rollaway and said she was comfortable. The other two beds were full-size (not queens). The room was something like $345 a night, but I think you can find better deals at times. (For some reason they comped us the rollaway, which is usually another $25 per night.)
The twin Murphy bed we had at Caribbean Beach was plenty big enough for our teen and two million pillows. The teen was 5’ 3" and slender but all those pillows. The length of the sleeping area was not an issue at any time during the week.
Plus the sleep surface is always flat. It’s not like a folded mattress on a cot.
Have you considered a cabin at Fort Wilderness? It doesn’t have the configuration that you listed, but there are 4 separate sleeping surfaces.
There are other PlanDisney responses that say that you can request a roll away bed at some resorts…
Thank you for sharing that! The photos make it look pretty small, like crib sized almost.
I appreciate the thought but:
1 - We live in Idaho and cabins and mountains are something we do regularly
2 - I haven’t seen them under $300 for a long time.
We were surprised at how accomodating it was.
It’s called a child bed so perhaps a 6’8" person doesn’t try it.
Or maybe there’s a weight limit.
Our teen was perhaps 130# due to sports and muscles.
It does seem more narrow than I’d care for.
Here are a couple of planDisney posts that say there are roll aways at some resorts… the information is very inconsistent. I have put a question into them, but may just contact Disney directly.
Would you mind comparing it to a bunk? She sleeps on a bunk here at home. She is only about 100#. But she moves a LOT (restless leg + insomnia).
I appreciate you!
I’d say more narrow. But if she’s 100# she’s probably fine. Our teen was a sprawler, plus all those pillows. I was a pest with the “are you sure you’re comfortable?” questions.
Your mileage may vary. I’d be more concerned about adequate floor space for a rollaway. A rollaway could be wider but that mattress will likely be lumpy.
Bits of info
The above is from Disney’s website
Below is a photo of part of the pull down bunk as it seems to be called. Near it is a chair for comparison.
Just to point out that Plan Disney is not official information.
Although Disney select the panel they do not vet the answers and there have been some howlers over the years (boat to Disney Springs from Wilderness Lodge, for example).
I do remember years ago people were able to get roll away beds but I don’t think they have been available for a few years now.
The cabin might be cheaper than an AOA suite (but will availability be an issue with the new DVC project?).
Yes, the Swan has queen beds— but no rollaways.
Ah, I just assumed with both being non-Disney properties, that bith would.
