    We just stayed (Jan. 2024) at the Contemporary Resort and had the best sleep ever! What pillows (both soft and firm) and mattress are used in the rooms at the Contemporary? The front desk wasn't sure, and I'm finding conflicting answers online.

    Hi Paul,

    Welcome to planDisney. We are so happy that you are rested, well, and visiting us! 

    I'm going to let you in on a little secret: over here at planDisney, we are obsessed with details. We are known to take pictures of everything we see on our Disney vacations so that we can help our families and new friends! Then, we like to work together to share what we all noticed. I can't tell you for sure which of my planDisney pals noted the mattress and pillows at Disney's Contemporary Resort, but I want to give the whole group credit! I'm just the messenger. 

    I want to caution you that Disney is always improving, so this might not be exactly what you experienced, but I can share what we know: 

    On a recent stay, the mattress at Disney's Contemporary Resort was a Sealy Sayer Prolux LTD. The Firm pillow was from Sobel Westex - Sahara Nights and a plush pillow option was from Sobel Westex - Sobella. Keep in mind that they dress these goods with crisp cotton sheets. I like to call the Disney method of making a bed the "Blanket sandwich," because it's sheet, then blanket, then sheet. I think this has to be spot-on to replicate the Disney sleep situation. 

    Isn't it fun to have friends who love the little things? 

    Paul, I also sleep like a baby on my Disney vacations. Whether I'm zonked after a full day exploring the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks or conquering a runDisney full 26.2 during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, or if I'm being rocked to sleep by the waves aboard a Disney Cruise Line vacation, I know that I am going to wake up rested. We push our bodies and minds right out of our comfort zone when we travel. We deserve excellent sleep. 

    I wonder if maybe your vacation snoozing was so great because you had a full day of adventure, connection, and fresh air and just maybe didn't have so much to do with the actual mattress and pillows? This is the conversation that I have with myself after every Disney vacation so that I am not the lucky new owner of a new bed after every magical, restful, memorable getaway. 

    No matter what, you will always know that if you are fighting a battle against insomnia, you can head down to Disney's Contemporary Resort to get some sleep! (Hey! That sounds like the perfect new reason to book another Walt Disney World Resort Vacation!) 

    Come on back and visit us with any other questions, Paul! We are so happy to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
