    Staying at Beach club and want to modify reservation to a 1 bedroom (5 People - 2 Adults and 3 Teens) Can I request a cot for the room?

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michele!

    Disney's Beach Club Resort is one of my favorite resorts within Walt Disney World. The resort itself is beautiful, with great Vacation Club Villas, tons of dining and entertainment options, and the ideal location for Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot fans. The walk to either of those parks is fairly quick and very convenient if you are trying to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios in time to join the boarding groups for Rise of the Resistance. Even if you are not a family of Star Wars fans, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge deserves a visit. The first Disney attraction to star Mickey Mouse and his friends, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, opens March 4, 2020, so definitely add that to the list of must-dos while visiting. This attraction will feature more hidden Mickeys than any other Disney attraction or area in the world! Since your arriving at the end of July, you just may get to experience Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at Epcot, as it is currently announced to be opening this summer. You can check back to see if it has opened prior to your arrival. What an exciting time to visit Walt Disney World! 

    My family often travels as a party of five, with teenagers who are not inclined to share beds, if it can be avoided. I have been able to request an air mattress or cot, though it is not guaranteed, as they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to avoid the possibility of not being able to obtain an air mattress or cot, we have also opted to bring our own twin-sized air mattress, with the necessary bedding. We prefer to bring our own air mattress so that we can stay in the 1-Bedroom Villa. The Deluxe Studio option at Disney's Beach Club Resort offers one queen-size bed, one full-size sleeper sofa as well as the one single pull-down bed (29" x 67"), so this may be a good option for your party as well. You can look at all of the room options available at Disney's Beach Club Resort and decide which best suits your party's needs. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation and find the exact right villa size for your party!
