    We're pondering a stay at the WL in a new Deluxe Studio room b/c it has a Queen, a sleeper and a pull down bed-can you tell me how long the pull down bed is? We'll have a 14yr old boy sleeping on it who will be ~5' 9". Will he fit comfortably?? TH

    Hi Mary! I spoke with a Cast Member today about the Murphy bed in the Deluxe Studios at the Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, as I have yet to stay in one of the recently redesigned rooms. He reported to me that the Murphy bed in this Resort is the same size as the ones recently added to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside. I have personally measured the Murphy beds in that Resort, so I know that they are 66” x 31”, which is a bit smaller than a standard twin-sized mattress. Your 5’9” son may be a little too cramped on a bed this size.

    I am not sure of how many family members you have, but if it is four and you are looking to have separate beds for two children, take a look at the Bunk Bed rooms at some of the Deluxe Resorts. The ones at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are 69” long and the ones at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge are 72” long. If you are looking for space for five Guests, most of the other Deluxe Resorts have a standard twin size daybed in addition to two queen beds. I checked out one this past Christmas and it was quite comfy. There are also several bedding options in the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, including a full-size bed and a set of 70” bunk beds in the main bedroom, as well as a full-size pull-down Murphy bed in the living room. The Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort have a mixture of queen and full-size beds to comfortably sleep six. 

    I hope this information helps you choose the best Resort for your family. If you need any further information about sleeping options at Walt Disney World Resort hotels, please stop by and ask away!
