    The beds that convert to a daybed, are they the same size as the 5th sleepers that pull down from the wall under the t.v. area? For example, the daybeds(couch)at the Polynesian & the 5th sleeper at Boulder Ridge Deluxe Studio that pulls down from wall.

    Hi Natasha,  

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for trusting our advice and returning with your great questions about these Disney resort room details. I am particular about our family's sleeping arrangements and have stayed in most resorts on property, so I’m excited to share these insights with you. I hope knowing what to expect can help you make the best resort choice for your family on this special vacation.

    As the resorts continue to be updated, different options for modern accommodations become available - as Guests, it's hard to keep up with the beautiful changes but please know you truly can’t go wrong at any of these incredible resorts. When a room type lists a “5th Sleeper” this is traditionally a single pull-down bed below the television and dresser, as you indicated. Some examples include the 5th Sleeper room category at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and the 5th Sleeper rooms at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

    Many Deluxe Studios in Deluxe Villa Resorts have this single pull-down bed but also boast a sleeper sofa (queen) or a pull-down murphy bed from the wall (also a queen sized bed). Both Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort (Deluxe Studio) and Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort (Deluxe Studio) have the standard queen bed plus a single pull-down bed and the queen sleeper sofa or queen murphy bed to sleep up to five adults in each room.

    Some resort rooms feature a single daybed converted from a sofa, which I find is a great fit for my tall tween son (though he can still fit in the single pull-down meant for children). My favorites for having two queen beds plus a large single daybed (sleeping up to five adults in total) include: Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.  

    When browsing the Walt Disney World website to view availability for a given room type, you can find the exact sleeping configurations listed in the summary description of that room. For example, this page for Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge shows some photos and lists the exact beds for these new Deluxe Studio room types. As you dig into the details of availability, please don’t hesitate to write us back with additional questions or call Disney directly for support in selecting the best room for your family. Many room types offer different bed configurations so it's important to confirm exactly what's needed before you arrive to ensure the right room is set for you.

    I hope this has you dreaming of a wonderful escape to the Walt Disney World Resort soon, Natasha! I adore every resort we’ve discussed today, so you truly can’t go wrong when staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. I love the benefits of staying on site, and the lovely themes and personal touch will make your stay distinctly Disney!  

    Wishing you a magical stay,
