Family style and bunk beds....

We are looking for rooms that have a bunk beds or something that has more then 2 beds. We stayed in the cabins at Ft Wilderness and loved the bunk beds and looking see if there is something similar and price wise before we settle to stay here again. Just looking for something where my children will not have to share a bed, Thanks!

Both the Wilderness Lodge and Animal kingdom Lodge have bunk beds as a bookable category.

They don't have bunk beds and I'm not sure how they compare price-wise to the cabins, but CR tower and GW rooms (GW rooms being the cheapest) would give you 2 queen beds and a daybed. All of the Poly rooms also come with a daybed.

Most, but not all, of the deluxe resorts have rooms with daybeds than can sleep a person at night. However, it's not a bookable category. If there are only 4 in your family, you might not be assigned one. Families of 5 have preference.

Also, PoR has rooms with a small daybed. I don't believe it would be large enough to sleep a teen or adult. Again, it's not a bookable category.

Bunk bed rooms at AKL and WL are bookable categories.

Great thanks, my eight year old can get away with sleeping in a day bed, but my teen would need a full sized bed, thanks for the info!

We're in the same situation where my two kids can't share a bed. Here's what I came up with as our options. I'm only including options where the 3rd bed is guaranteed since there are other resorts where some rooms have a day bed but it's not a bookable category therefore not guaranteed.

* 2 rooms at a value resort
* family suite at ASMu
* suite at AoA
* preferred room at POR (only preferred room is guaranteed to have a murphy bed for parties less than 5)
* cabin at FW
* 2 rooms at a moderate resort
* bunk bed room at AKL or WL
* any room at CR, Poly, or GF
* studio at VGF
* 1br villa at OKW, BLT, AKL, or VGF
* 2br villa at any of the DVC resorts

I think some of the deluxe rooms at BC, BWI, and CR can sleep 5 or 6 as well but you're jumping in price. For the DVC properties you'll most likely get a cheaper price by renting points. In the near future at least, don't expect to be able to rent points at VGF unless you're booking 11 months out and even then for a while it'll be tough.

You can book preferred which will guarantee you a room in Alligator Bayou with the Murphy bed.

Saratoga Springs Tree House Villas have a set of bunk beds in one of the bedrooms. The other two bedrooms each have a queen sized bed. The living room has a queen sized sleeper sofa and a twin sleeper chair. So they sleep nine with a full kitchen and washer and dryer.

I travel with an inflatable twin-size mattress. I bought a fairly high-quality one with a built-in inflator. We use it so that our teen son and daughter don't have to share a bed.

We stayed at POR when my son was 9. He slept on the Murphy bed and had no problems with it. My daughter loved the fact that she got a queen all to herself. He will be too big for the bed this trip. If you aren't spending too much time in your room,it's great. Otherwise, it is cramped in there. We are opting to stay at the Cabins this time.
