Cots? AKL

Are you able to rent cots at Animal Kingdom Lodge? If so, how much does the rental cost per day?

We have 4 people but we think it will be more comfortable if we had a cot rather than two people sharing the pull out couch.

No; I checked three different sources and they do not provide rollaway beds.

I know they have been taking them out of the moderates as they have been changing from doubles to queen sized beds, due to the space needed.

I would definately bring or ship an air mattress. We were three people in a studio at SSR and I slept on the pull out couch; I couldn't imagine another person sharing it with me.

The air mattress is great, because you can lean it up against the wall when not in use.

Pull out couch? Staying in a villa i guess? Studio? Might be better just getting a reg room

If you are staying in a DVC studio with one queen bed and one double sleeper sofa, you cannot request a cot. DVC resorts do not provide cots.

You might be able to get one for a hotel room with two queen beds.

Not in the moderates that have switched over to queens; POR and POFQ eliminated the rollaways when they converted over.

We stayed in a studio April 2012, and when checking in I asked if the pullout was a full size or queen. The Cast member said when we got to the room if the boys thought it would be more comfortable they would send up a rollaway or cot whatever you call it. So yes it is an option. We were not trying to squeeze in more people, just didn't want my 2 boys unable to sleep comfortably.

That is very out of the ordinary. DVC does not provide cots.
