    Hello! We will be staying in a one bedroom suite at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in a few months. I have heard the pull out sofa bed is not very comfortable. Is a mattress topper available upon request from the hotel?

    Hi Aaisha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. I stayed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge last month with one of my girlfriends, and we had such a fabulous time! The moments I spent on our balcony, drinking a cup of coffee and watching the animals roam the Savanna, were so lovely and peaceful – I can’t wait to stay there with my children one day.

    I slept on the sofa bed during that visit, and I thought it was perfectly comfortable, especially because the kind of tired I get at Disney means that I could sleep soundly in the bathtub if I needed to. Having said that, I know how absolutely critical a good night of sleep is, and I’m happy to report that I checked in with a Cast Member, who confirmed that mattress toppers are available upon request. I recommend calling (407) 939-1936 to add that request to your reservation; you can also make the request when you arrive in your room by contacting the front desk (I always like to request in advance, as supplies can be limited).

    I hope you have a WILD time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Aaisha! I was blown away by all the recreation options available at the resort, so be sure to request a copy of the resort recreation guide when you arrive. If you haven’t already looked at a reservation at Boma - Flavors of Africa, I thought their brunch was really delicious and a great value, with lots of traditional African and American flavors available and a gorgeous setting.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
