Mom with kids in bedroom at Polynesian Villas and Bungalows

    Hello, Can you please tell me the difference between a "day bed" (Beach Club/Club Level) and a "pull down bed" (Poly Villas)? Thanks.

    Hi Brenda!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are a family of seven, so I know how important it is to make sure that the "extra" beds are comfortable. Everyone needs a fantastic sleep to have the energy for all the fun in the Parks!

    Disney's Beach Club Resort has hands down my kiddos' (and everyone else's) favorite pool on Walt Disney World Resort property! Between Stormalong Bay's fantastic slide and the sand-bottomed pool, we have a hard time leaving the Resort. The daybeds measure 29" x 67" long, which is slightly smaller than a standard twin mattress measuring 38" by 75". We are short-stacks in our family, so our tweens are able to sleep on the bed comfortably, but if you have an adult or lanky teenager, it might be a bit snug!

    I think one of the few pools that can compete with Stormalong Bay is at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. With its 142-foot long slide, the Lava Pool is the ultimate tropical modern escape, and if you have littles joining you, Kiki Tiki's Splash Play area is a must-do! The Murphy (pull-down) bed in the Villas is 30" by 73" making it slightly larger than the daybed at Disney's Beach Club Villas, but still smaller than a twin. Now, if you have someone taller, consider booking a standard room which comes with two queen beds and a pullout sofa bed, which may be more comfortable than the Murphy.

    Brenda, I've attached the video that shows the Murphy bed at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows. I hope the visual helps! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back.
