    In June, we're taking our son (11) and his friend (11) to the Boardwalk Villas for a week. We're (my wife and I) also taking my FIL. Can we (I hope) ask for a rollaway cot for him? The boys will sleep on the sleeper sofa. I sure hope this will work! We're booked!!!

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I'm not going to open the 5 in a 1brdm debate, but I will say that there are no rollaway beds (or "extra" beds of any kind) available at DVC resorts. There are 2 beds in a 1 bdrm, 1 king in the master suite, and 1 fold out couch in the living room. So, unless you, your DW and FIL are planning to SHARE the king (and I doubt you are), how are you going to fit 5 people into 2 beds? You CAN bring a small air matress, but it will still be crowded with 3 adults and two young kids. And Disney will NOT provide extra bed linens for your air bed.

    Without opening a debate, what Chuck said about the roll away is true--they do not provide these. Considering the scenario I doubt you will be able to fit comfortably in this room.

    Great! I guess we'll have to pack an air mattress and linens. I pay a great deal of attention to this board, I can't believe I don't recall knowing this info :( Oh well, we'll deal with it...somehow!

    BTW, you'll also need extra towels and bath linens, they are available from DVC for $6 per set, or you can bring your own.

    A "set" is 4 bath towels and wash cloths (don't remember how many hand towels). We did a similar set up a few years ago, we were actually 7 in a 2 bedroom lock-off, but a family of 5 shared the 1 bedroom portion, and Mom & I shared the studio (OKW). The "extra" adult in the 1 bedroom was a small woman, so she just slept on the loveseat. It still wasn't the most comfortable arrangement.

    Since the original poster's question has been answered, and occupancy limits are not up for discussion on this board, I will direct those interested to visit our Debate Board regarding five in a one bedroom. Thanks all.
