Bed Types and Sleeping Space Layouts at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

 WALT DISNEY WORLD BEDS AND SLEEPING SPACES

Larger families simply seeking the best Walt Disney World resort option for their family size should see

However, as a recent email-er reminded me, many families figuring out where to stay at Walt Disney World are concerned not only with the capacity of rooms but also bed sizes, and how beds are distributed among rooms.

This way, Aunt Eileen isn’t forced to sleep in a bunk bed, in the same room as her niece…unless that’s the plan going in!

Click the graphic for details on beds and sleeping spaces in the various larger room options at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The details include room type, price class, and descriptions of each sleeping area.

(Note that more data about room types–such as baths, kitchens, and square footage–is available in the links for large families above, and reviews of many Walt Disney World resorts can be found from the links on this page.)

Example floorplans tied to the details in the graphic are below.

“DVC” means Disney Vacation Club Resort–see this for more on the DVC resorts.

EXAMPLE WALT DISNEY WORLD FLOOR PLANS

Four person DVC Studio floorplan.

Villas at the Wilderness Lodge example.

One sleeping area. Two queens, or a queen and a pull-out couch, all in one space.

Four person DVC One-Bedroom Villa floorplan.

BoardWalk Villas example.

Two sleeping areas. One king in a private bedroom, and a fold-out full couch in a second space, a shared living/dining/kitchen area.

Five person DVC One-Bedroom Villa floor plan.

Animal Kingdom Villas Kidani Village example.

Two sleeping areas. As in 4-person villa above, but also with a fold-out chair added to the shared space. Note also the second bath.

(Available in Bay Lake Tower, most Animal Kingdom Lodge villas, and in Old Key West villas.)

Five person room, Port Orleans Riverside Alligator Bayou Section.

One sleeping area. Two queen beds and one 66″ x 31″ fold-down bed in one space.

Six person Family Suites at All-Star Music floor plan.

Two sleeping areas. One queen in a private room, one fold-out full couch, one fold out single chair, and one fold-out ottoman in another space. The ottoman bed is uncomfortable for taller or heavier kids.

Note the two baths.

Six Person Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort floor plan

Two sleeping areas. One queen in a private room, one full fold-out couch, and one near full Murphy bed.

Note the two baths.

Six person cabin at the Fort Wilderness Resort floor plan.

Two sleeping areas. One full and two 70″ bunk beds in a private room. One pull-down full “Murphy bed” in shared living/ dining/ kitchen space.

The couch in the shared space is long enough for most kids, and still usable as a bed when the Murphy bed is down, presenting the option of having three people in each of the sleeping spaces.

A few cabins have a pull-out full couch instead of the Murphy bed, eliminating this option.

Eight person DVC Two-Bedroom Villa floor plan.

Villas at the Wilderness Lodge example.

Three sleeping areas: One king in a private space; two queens, or a queen and a fold-out full couch, in a second private space, and a fold-out full couch in the shared living/dining/kitchen space.

Nine person DVC Two-Bedroom Villa floor plan.

Animal Kingdom Villas Kidani Village example.

Three sleeping areas: as in Eight Person Two-Bedroom above, but with a fold-out chair added to the shared space. Note also the third bathroom.

(Available in Bay Lake Tower, most Animal Kingdom Lodge villas, and in the renovated Old Key West villas.)

Nine person DVC Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villa floorplan.

Four sleeping areas: One queen in a private space; another queen in a private space; two 70″ bunk beds in a private space; a fold-out full couch and a fold-out single chair in the shared living/dining/kitchen space.

Twelve person DVC Grand Villa floorplan.

Animal Kingdom Villas Jambo House example.

Four to five sleeping areas. One king in a private space; two queens in a private space; two queens or fulls in another private space; one or two fold-out full couches in shared living space.

Note that although you can sum to 14 sleeping spots in some Grand Villas, WDW will provide room keys, meal plans, and linens only for up to 12 people.
