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
- Large Families Looking for Value Pricing at Walt Disney World
- Large Families Looking for Deluxe Accommodations at Walt Disney World or
- The Most Comfortable Place to Stay at Walt Disney World (for suites)
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!
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.
EXAMPLE WALT DISNEY WORLD FLOOR PLANS
Four person DVC Studio floorplan.
One sleeping area. Two queens, or a queen and a pull-out couch, all in one space.
Four person DVC One-Bedroom Villa floorplan.
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.
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
Note the two baths.
Six person cabin at the Fort Wilderness Resort floor plan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
