    Are there any room options that provide beds for tall teens? We are a family of 4 and our 16 year old son is almost 6” so he is not always very comfortable squeezing into the lower bunk. Any suggestions?

    Ahoy there, Jamie! Welcome aboard planDisney! 

    Ah, the age-old question of what to do with a tall one on a Disney Cruise Line vacation. While I have the luxury of being completely average in stature, which makes naps on the couch berth quite comfortable, there's no need to search for a "Drink Me" potion like Alice to get him to shrink a bit! If his comfort on vacation is important - and let's be honest, EVERYONE should feel comfortable on vacation - a stateroom that sleeps three to four Guests is not going to offer the best sleeping arrangements.

    To paraphrase the words of the great Obi-Wan Kenobi, "these are not the staterooms you're looking for."

    I'd set a course for a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom which sleeps up to five Guests. Many of these rooms include not only more space, a split bath, and often a circular shower (at least on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy) but a fold-down wall bed as well. While it is still a twin-sized bed, its orientation in the room and lack of "armrests" like the couch bed has makes it infinitely more accommodating than those berths.

    When selecting a stateroom in this category, be sure to pay attention to the list of sleeping arrangements on the "select your stateroom" screen. You should see the words "Single Wall Pull-Down Bed" in the list next to the bed icon when the stateroom you select has this feature.

    Now, since you're a crew of four and headroom with your teen is a factor, be on the lookout for rooms like 6010 on the Disney Dream which falls into this category, but also does not have the upper berth! So if your other little crew member fits comfortably on the convertible sofa bed, this could be a great choice - though any stateroom with the wall bed should suit your needs! 

    I hope that gives your crew the room to stretch their legs for a relaxing sailing, Jaime! Thank you so much for your question, and if you have any others surface as you continue planning, please drop us another line here at planDisney. 

    Until then, may your anchor be tight and your compass true!
