    What is a "table bed"?

    Hello Todd,

    Thank you for reaching out to planDisney with your question! A "table bed," often referred to as a Murphy bed, is a versatile and space-saving piece of furniture found in several accommodations at the Walt Disney World Resort. This innovative design allows a bed to be folded away when not in use, transforming into a table or a sofa, depending on the specific room configuration.

    In the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) rooms, such as those at Disney's Riviera Resort or the recently updated Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, these Murphy beds convert into comfortable sofas during the day. This design allows for a seamless transition from a cozy living space during the day to a peaceful sleeping area at night, all with minimal effort. It's a perfect solution for making the most out of the available space in studio units.

    Additionally, at some of the value resorts like Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's Pop Century Resort, Murphy beds are used to maximize the functional use of space. These beds fold down from what appears as a wall unit into a bed, and when folded up, they reveal a table beneath, providing a convenient dining or work area. This clever design is especially handy for families or groups who need to optimize their living space without compromising comfort.

    This blend of functionality and creativity in room design is just one of the ways Disney ensures guest comfort and satisfaction during their stay. Whether you are staying in a DVC room or a value resort, the use of Murphy beds adds a touch of magic by transforming living spaces to meet the needs of the day or night.

    We hope this information helps you look forward to a magical and comfortably accommodated visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this October. Have a fantastic trip, Todd!

    Best regards,
