Is there a difference in the matresses/bedding

In the Value, Moderate or Deluxe? Do they have the same matresses, or are the mroe $$ places have better quality matresses and bedding?

I think you will get varied answers, because the perception of "quality" is sort of subjective.

Personally, my family has not noticed a difference in bedding and we've stayed at all levels. However, I think that by the time our heads hit the pillows, we could be on a sidewalk and it wouldn't have mattered because we are so tired.

We've never stayed at a value, but have stayed at 1 mod (CBR) and all but 3 of the deluxes (CR, BWI, & YC). With that said, while I have never had trouble sleeping at any resort, I have found the beds at the Poly and GF to be the most comfortable .

There is a difference in size. I believe most, if not all the values have fullsize beds, some moderates have fullsize and some have queen, and the deluxes all have queen minimum. There are probably exceptions where you could get a King at some of the moderates but they are few and far between I bet.

The values all have double (full) beds. The mods all have queen beds except for CBR which has double beds. The deluxes have queen beds (some also have day beds or pullout sofa beds. All levels have some king beds.

As to the quality of the mattresses- the degree of firmness or softnes is really subjective; but in our experience the more expensive the resort the better the mattress. The epitome of mattress comfort, though, is apparently to be found at the Swan/Dolphin resorts.

Linen quality also seems to go up with the level of resort.

I am a bedding snob and i hate hotel beds that have the standard heavy bed spread ( how often do these get washed, not each time a new guest comes right?? ) with poly blanket and top sheet. I love duvets and any quality hotel should have them. Think Westin heavenly bed.

That being said we have stayed in CBR and POFQ and both had the yucky bedspread, but matteresses were good. I left the bedspread off.
In researching I found that Coronado as a mod now has duvets, if they are down, i dont know. Cant see down being a hit in Florida. I was tempted to switch from FQ after reading this. We stuck with FQ and were happy in our choice for other, non bed reasons.

I do wonder if the deluxes have duvets, IMO if they also have bedspreads they are really over charging. Any standard delux nowadays do duvets.

The Epcot resorts, WL and CR have duvets. The Poly, GF, and AKL still have bedspreads.

The Swan has the comfiest beds ever and duvet. It is not a true WDW hotel but it is on site and very nice theme. We got the nurse discount. They also have one for teachers. I have not found any other on site hotels as comfortable yet.
We are trying boardwalk villa this time. I am a bit nervous after reading some reviews.

Last year I spent a night at the ASMu (which I loved btw for a value!) prior to checking into the BLT for my stay. The mattress and pillows were night and day. We all know that disney charges ridiculous prices for their delux resorts compared to standard luxury hotel prices, but you do get better quality rooms as part of the price. Not just the mattress and pillow, but even the dressers and other furniture seemed better quality than the ASMu.

I would hope if I was paying $550 a night compared to $107 I would get nicer furnishings. I think what makes a nice mattress is to some point subjective. However, I would think the rest of the furnishings at BLT would be more upscale than those at ASMu.

We just returned from the CR, & I was surprised at how comfortable the beds & pillows were!

Our previous stays have been at FW cabins, WL, & CBR.

Even DH commented on how comfortable the beds were at CR. They were probably some of the most comfortable hotel or condo beds in which we've ever slept.

We've stayed at all levels and prefer the bedding at the deluxe resorts. It's a better quality mattress and I love the pillows.

OMG that is crazy. How could the GF and Poly ( seeing their prices and GF being marketed as the flagship resort), not do duvets?!?! Especially for what they are charging. Sorry but in my head, bedspreads look cheap, motel like. Regardless of the "theming".


Can you request it?? Especially seeing you are paying at times 400 plus a night. I would be demanding my feather pillow .

Yes there is a difference in the mattresses, the Grand Floridian is the only pillow top.

As to duvets, I would imagine eventually as each resort goes through a soft product rehab they will get them.

Out of our stays the only time we had a complaint about the mattress was at AKL. It was just not comfy and it was squeeky. Maybe it was because we stayed in a DVC room and they aren't as kept up as regular rooms ?

I did notice last week while at AKL they were changing mattresses and I saw the on the 3rd and 4th floor. Maybe they are working their way up.
