    So we are a family of 4-3 adults and a child. Everyone in my party is over 5 ft 5 in. The reason I am telling you this because we got a preferred room but not one of us will fit in the pull down bed. I was wondering about roll away beds?

    Hey there, Joan!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you've stopped by with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! I'm excited to hear you're planning a family trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Staying at a Disney Resort hotel is a special part of every Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I'm here to help you and your family to have a comfortable and restful experience!

    Preferred Rooms at Disney Resort hotels are usually located nearest to the resort's lobby, transportation hub, dining locations, pools, or other amenities. This room type is available at each of the Value Resort hotels (except for Disney's Art of Animation Resort), most of the Moderate Resort hotels, and Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. Joan, you didn't mention which Disney Resort hotel your family will be checking into during your upcoming visit. Depending on which location you'll be staying at, the room configuration could vary between Preferred Room types. For example, a Preferred Room at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside may offer two queen-sized beds and one twin-sized pull-down bed while a Preferred Room at Disney's Pop Century Resort might feature one queen-sized bed and one queen-sized table bed. Ahead of your visit, I encourage you to look into the room configuration at the Resort hotel you'll be staying at to determine if it'll work for your Club of Mouseketeers! If you decide you'd like to upgrade your stay to a different Resort hotel or room type, you may be able to modify your reservation online (pending availability). Otherwise, the friendly Cast Members at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations phone line would be happy to assist you.

    Joan, Guests may request roll-away beds when they check in at their Disney Resort hotel (subject to availability and room capacity). However, please note that these roll-away beds are usually twin-sized. Therefore, I encourage you to evaluate your family's needs and decide on a room type that will comfortably sleep everyone in your 'ohana before you arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth! A couple of ideas come to mind that would allow your family to spread out and sleep soundly: Disney's All-Star Music Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort both offer Family Suites that accommodate up to six adults. Plus, the Deluxe Villas usually offer more space as well as many of the comforts of home, including laundry and full kitchens in some room types!

    I hope you've found this information helpful, Joan, and I want to wish you and your family a wonderful stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any additional questions, please stop back by planDisney again anytime. Additionally, if you have any specific follow-up questions, you can always reach out to me directly if you'd prefer. I'd love you help you make magical memories on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    See ya real soon,
