Along with my family of 4, my sister (also a contributor to this website) often travels to Walt Disney World with us. Because of this, we are often looking for accommodations for a group of 5, which isn’t as easy as it sounds, especially when you’re penny pinchers like we are. Our recent stay at the Boardwalk resort was great, in part, because their DVC studios have a single Murphy bed that allowed the room to better accommodate our group. While a 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, or one of the family suites offered at Art of Animation and All Star Music would obviously offer even more room, those rooms also come with much heftier price tags. So we came up with a comprehensive list of standard, studio rooms that Walt Disney World offers that will sleep at least 5 people.
Unfortunately, no value resorts offer studios with enough space for 5 people. However, two of the moderate resort do. These include Caribbean Beach and Port Orleans Riverside.
Note that you will need to be specific when booking to insure you are booked in a room with a Murphy bed.
Several of the deluxe resorts offer extra in the sleeping arrangement, including Beach Club, Yacht Club, Boardwalk Inn, the Contemporary, Grand Floridian and Polynesian. The only Deluxe resorts to avoid if you need sleeping for more than 4 are Animal Kingdom Lodge and Wilderness Lodge.
Deluxe Villas/Disney Vacation Club Resorts
You guys know by now that we are big fans of renting Disney Vacation Club points for the majority of our vacations. Thankfully, several of these resorts also have studio rooms with extra sleeping. Of the DVC resorts, it includes Beach Club Villas, Boardwalk Inn Villas, Wilderness Lodge – Boulder Ridge, Grand Floridian Villas and Polynesian Villas.
Most of the studio resort rooms will accommodate the 5th person via a pull down Murphy bed, however some will have an additional pull out couch.
