Anyone have a photo of the murphy bed or know what it is?

I have been on several Disney Cruise's but I don't recall having a murphy bed at all and we have one available this time. I have seen the couch fold out and the drop down bunk (ceiling) but the murphy bed I cannot recall. Any pics or info? That may be a great option for our 3 and 6 yr old instead of the bunk. Is it a double?

The Murphy bed is a bed that comes down from the wall. It usually come down in front of the verandah door making it hard to get out on the verandah when it is down.

Hopefully someone can post a pic. the threads that I knew had pics seemed to have had the pics deleted.

The cabins that sleep 5 will have them.

It's a single firm bed. Not all cabins have them.

I slept on the Murphy bed on the Fantasy. It is a bed that pulls down from the wall (it's hidden in the wall) by the window. It extends out towards the dresser on the opposite wall. It is not a double bed, but depending on how small your children are, you may be able to put both of them in the bed. The room that the Murphy bed was in also had a fold out couch. You might be able to put one child in each if your stateroom has both. Our stateroom aslo had the ceiling bunk in it as I recall, but we didn't use it.

So how do you know which rooms have a murphy, which has a coach that oukks into a single bed, which couches pull out into a double bed and which have out of the ceiling beds? So confused. Staying on the Dream in 12508 cat v. Just says sleeps 5.

A stateroom that sleeps 5 will have 4 beds -- the queen bed, convertible sofa, drop-down bunk and the murphy bed. The "Family" stateroom categories (categories 8, 4 or V) will sleep up to 5, but I'm not certain all will sleep 5. Really, the only way to guarantee the murphy bed is to book a room that will definitely sleep 5 -- price out a ressie for 5 passengers to see what stateroom numbers it gives, then re-price appropriately for your family size and put in one of those staterooms.

Enjoy your cruise!

Thank you. Very helpful. Our stateroom can be book for 5 people. Teen boys are not always willing to share.

DCL for some reason doesn't publicly share the bed configuration for the cabins unfortunately. You can also check room reports. Some do indicate the bed config.

I will also note on the Dream and Fantasy some cat 4 cabins will have a murphy and no ceiling bunk. Or obviously vise versa.

Call DCL or your TA to find out the exact bed config if in doubt.

This cabin has a double pullout sleep sofa and a ceiling bunk. No murphy.
If you booked 5 pax, someone needs to share besides the parents, or bring an air mattress for the veranda. lol

We had one on the dream. It is not on the wall, it is on the floor (it just comes out of the wall). It goes right in front of the window. I slept it in and I thought it was great.

This is correct, the category V rooms have a double pullout couch, more like what you'd expect from a sofa bed at home.
