    can you tell me the size of the pull down child's bed (length, width) in the Carribean hotel? I want to determine if my smallest child would be comfortable (room is 2 queens +5th child size bed). thanks

    Hi John, and welcome back to planDisney!

    I’m also planning a stay at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, and getting ready for my Mousekeers to squabble over who gets to sleep in the 5th sleeper bed. It’s always a delight to pull the handle down on these beds and see the Disney art inside – it’s these touches that have my family on a quest to stay at every single Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Your friendly planDisney panelists never leave home without a measuring tape, so I do have the measurements. The 5th sleeper bed found in the 5th sleeper room category at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort are 64” long by 30” wide. The mattresses are a little smaller than a standard twin size, and I think they’re best for children to tweens. My daughter is a very tall twelve and she has already been warned that she is likely going to find those beds uncomfortable, much to her brother’s delight.

    If you find that this size bed won’t work for you, I see my pal Wyatt has recommended The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. This would be my go-to pick for your family, as you could comfortably sleep 5 between the main bed, bunk beds, and pull-out sofa. This resort also comes with a full kitchen, which I always factor into my budget, because it means we can save money by cooking some of our own meals. You could also look at the Family Suites at either Disney’s Art of Animation Resort or Disney’s All-Star Music Resort (though note that Disney’s All-Star Music Resort is currently closed as part of the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort). You might also want to look into 1-bedroom Deluxe Villa accommodations, which is my family’s very favorite way to stay at Disney.

    John, if these measurements work for your smallest Mouseketeer, you will love staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. I can’t wait to dip into their amazing pool and sit poolside with a frosty drink from Banana Cabana. The Disney Skyliner is a major bonus to staying at this resort, and I encourage you to take a quick glide over to Disney’s Riviera Resort for some amazing coffee at Le Petit Café. 

    Have so much fun planning your upcoming visit, and please come back and see us if we can help as you choose the perfect resort for your family.
