    Are DVC at Animal kingdom lodge or Kidani scheduled to get Murphy beds ?

    Hiya Mariann!  

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Like you, I was excited to see the addition of pull-down, queen-sized beds when Disney Vacation Club opened the doors of its new Tower Studios at Disney's Riviera Resort.  These beds have also been included in the newly-completed refurbishment of Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and I can't wait to check them out during my stay later this year.  It's so exciting to see this cool new room feature making its way to more Disney Vacation Club Resorts!  

    Information about a full refurbishment – which might include the addition of these pull-down beds – hasn't yet been released for either Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House or Kidani Villas. New refurbishments are typically announced during the Annual Members Meeting, which was last held in December 2021, so that's where news of upcoming projects is most likely to be shared. You can learn more about the next Annual Meeting, as well as other exciting information about Disney Vacation Club, by regularly signing in to the "My DVC" section of the Disney Vacation Club website for all the latest Membership news and updates.  

    While it doesn't include Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas, you might be excited to hear about an expansion and update coming to another Disney Vacation Club Resort, Mariann –– The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa!  The expansion will create approximately 200 Resort Studios, an all-new Disney Vacation Club room type that will be unique to Guests of the Grand Floridian.  These Resort Studios will sleep up to five Guests and feature two queen-sized beds and a single-sized day bed.  The project will also be updating the Resort's existing Deluxe Studio and Villa accommodations, including the addition of pull-down, queen-sized beds in most rooms.  Opening in Summer 2022, these newly designed rooms will be available for Member booking starting in Spring 2022.  

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Mariann!  Please be sure to visit again if you think of any other questions –– we're always here to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
