Poly, Lagoon View 2 Queens and a Queen sleeper? (PIC of screenshot)

Is this new? I thought the Poly just had 2 Queens and a day bed?

The site says 2 Queens and a Queen sleep sofa for the Lagoon View rooms?

Truth, or just another boo boo on Disney's website?

I can't imagine how a queen sized sleeper sofa would even open up in a room that already has two queen beds in it. It has to be a typo.

If you do room only for lagoon or theme park view it says:

All rooms have 2 queen-size beds and a day bed, small table, chair, ceiling fan and bathroom

I wish it were true, however, I believe this maybe incorrect for the queen sleeper. The description still says "sleeps 5". If it were a queen sleeper and not the day bed it would be "sleeps 6". Something definitely to keep an eye on.

Nope, the size of beds does not equate to room capacity. You can have six sleeping spots but fire codes limit the room capacity to 5. So, they can only advertise the rated room capacity thus "sleeps 5".

I have seen pictures of the new daybeds coming with the room refresh that's underway and they do look larger but I haven't seen anything about them being Queen yet, or at least until this and it might be possible.

The newer longhouses may have room (such as Tahiti), but this is the first that I've seen anything pointed at there possibly being a change. I'm sure it would be popular!

I have looked at almost all the Deluxe and Moderate resorts and none of them are limited by fire code capacity. it is all about how much room there is in the rooms, and what Disney thinks will make the most $

Take into consideration the site you got that info from. It does not look like an actual Disney site nor one dedicated to Disney. Maybe they just put out the wrong info? These POLY experts here should know I'm sure. I'd trust their word and info before a 3rd or 4th party site.

That is actually the Disney website .... The new and "improved" version.

Yes, that IS the actual Disney site. Why would I post it from any other site?

And how would you put the wrong info in? Poly Lagoon View room, please. Oh, I see there is a Queen sleeper listed multiple times on Disney's new website. Get YOUR facts straight.

Okay, I have a lil confession. I"m a lil obsessive. Actually, I think most Disney lovers are. Several years ago when my youngest of 4 was 3, we did not fit into a room for 5 anymore. I looked at square footage of rooms. The number of people to the square footage didn't match up at all the resorts. As I am sure many have been told by the reservation cast members, the number of people in a room is determined by fire code. SOOOOOooooo, I called the county fire chief and inquired what the criteria was for the Disney properties for number of people in a room. He said it was determined by Disney and reported to the fire department how many people are in a specific room in the specific resorts. This way they would know the maximum number of guests. So, yes it is fire code, however that code is based on what Disney sets.
