    Are the pull out couches at AKL comfortable enough for an adult to sleep on for a week?

    Hiya, Karan! Thanks for dropping by planDisney with your question. 

    From the dining options like Boma- Flavors of Africa and Sanaa to the giraffes you'll find roaming the savanna, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a resort like no other and I'm so excited to hEAR that you're planning a visit. My family and I love the pools at this property and we learned so much about the animals by chatting with the Cast Members stationed at the animal overlooks. 

    Now, while there are a plethora of ways to entertain yourself at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, you'll want to get a good night's rest so that you're ready to tackle the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort, so let's chat about accommodations. The concept of comfortable in terms of bedding is certainly a difficult one to quantify as some adults would prefer an extra firm mattress while others wish for a pillow-like bed with more air than Baymax! Unfortunately when my family stayed in the deluxe studio room with the sleeper sofa, my kids slept on this bed instead of the adults so I can't offer a first-hand, adult review, but I will say that they did so without complaint and seemed quite cozy with this option. 

    Karan, as a Disney Vacation Club Member who often books deluxe studio rooms with one standard bed and one sleeper or pull-down option, I will also share that overall I have always been pleased with the quality of "hide-away" bed options and hope that if you (or another member of your party) will be sleeping on the sofa, you're more comfortable than Sleeping Beauty waiting for Prince Philip. 

    Best wishes as you continue to plan for your trip. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney where we love to help guests create their own Magic!
