DH & I did this when we ended up with a double/double. It wasn't ideal.

But while we're talking size, a queen bed is 5" LONGER than a double as well.
I care for the same reason anybody else cares about when asking a question on a message board.

Did you really 'expect' that anyone was going to say no...... lol

It's the Dis......justify your decisions to the bitter end.

ETA: but it would be more fun if these kinds of questions really resulted in us pondering some of the things we do/think, wouldn't it? Sadly, there's fat chance of that

SO I ask you, does it really matter or is it all a mental thing needing the Queen beds because in your mind you feel it is much bigger?
For us, it really does matter. My husband is 6'4". For us to sleep in a double bed, it is *very* uncomfortable. We've had to when staying with relatives. The added size of the Queen doesn't give us extra room, it gives us just enough with his long legs.

We sleep on a King at home because it's more comfortable than a Queen. The King does give us extra room, which I gladly claim as mine. If we can request or book a King when we're at WDW or elsewhere, I do my best to get one, even if I have to pay more.

So to answer your question - for us, it isn't just a mental thing.

It matters to us b/c DH is pooh sized so we really can't fit in a double bed too well. I always feel as if I'm going to fall off the bed since there is hardly any room left when we are both laying there. Plus there's the issue with both of us hogging the sheets at times.

A double (or full size bed) is really made for people who are not heavy set and children. It's not made for those who are heavy.

To us a double or queen is a big difference. I like space when I sleep and sleeping in a queen is much more comfortable for us than sleeping in a double.

Just booked a WDW stay and the CM on the phone apologized that only King beds were available...I said no problem!!! Love me a king sized bed!!!

It's weird to me that some people seem to be getting really defensive about this question. It seems like something we could talk about without rancor. I will sleep in a double on occasion, but definitely prefer a queen for the extra space it offers.

It makes a huge difference. We need a queen or king. We had a queen the first 15 years we were married and have had king since then (17 years). When we end up in a hotel with double beds, we each sleep in one. I love my DH, but to get a good night's sleep we need our own space.

Um, maybe because of the way the OP posed the question. Almost like talking down to people who want a bigger bed. It came off as confrontational.

We have a Cali king at home. We get doubles when traveling. No issues. We are both bigger people...DH being 6'6 and 300. We can both sleep anywhere...as can our kids.

FWIW, all 4 of us used to crowd into a double when the kids were littler....that felt crowded, but we could all still sleep!

Our family likes to spread out when we sleep. At home, DH and I have a king, DS14 has a queen and DS9 has a double. At WDW, we get a 2 bedroom for the 4 of us so that DH & I still have the king and each kid gets his own queen.

After I read this, I went back and read the first post. I'm not getting that vibe? It just seems like OP may lean toward the mathematical curiosity side of things.
And some of the responses have been helpful, like the one that points out the difference is not just in the width, but the length.

We sleep in a King @ home, so yes, a double is a big difference to us (even a Queen is) Now, I'm not going to complain or worse, not go on the trip over the size of the bed, but if given a reasonable choice, we are going with Queen or larger! I am 5'2" and DH is 6'1"while neither of us is "huge" we are both somewhat overweight. Add that my DH is a furnance when he's sleeping, and that due to hormonal issues, I am ALWAYS hot, I would never get any sleep if we were crammed together at night.
