Murphy Beds are headed to Disney’s Polynesian and Grand Floridian Villas as part of their scheduled Disney Vacation Club soft-goods refurbishments!
In an article shared on Disney Parks Blog, Disney Files Magazine Editor Ryan March confirmed that this popular addition would appear at both resorts:
“Coupled with renovations scheduled for completion this fall inside the villas at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, and refurbishment work set to begin this November at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa (with both projects involving installation of foldaway beds behind living room sofas – a feature made famous at Disney’s Riviera Resort before becoming part of the recent refurbishment of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa), these projects are part of an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement that keeps our neighborhood of resorts ahead of the curve.”
Earlier this month, we shared the first look at images of a refurbished bungalow at Disney’s Polynesian Villas, which hinted at the possible inclusion of these pull-down Murphy couch beds throughout the resort.
Over in the DVC Fan Facebook Group, member Rob Krawiecki broke the news yesterday that Murphy beds appeared to be making their way into Pago Pago, which has already started its soft-goods refurbishment.
Throughout the Polynesian’s planned refresh, the furniture appears to have been reupholstered with lighter teal, blue, and different tropical colors. New vibrant carpet inserts have also replaced the outdated grey and beige carpeting previously throughout the villas.
Other minor changes include adding updated appliances, including a coffee pot/Keurig combo and other small touches throughout the bungalows.
Noticeably absent are any Moana touches, with Lilo and Stitch featured prominently in a large painting on the new pull-down Murphy bed.
Murphy beds seem to be here to stay, and we can only hope to continue to see them incorporated into future Disney Vacation Club Resort refurbishment projects. Let us know in the comments what you think of the addition of these Murphy beds throughout Disney’s Polynesian and Grand Floridian Villas and what new touches you also hope to see incorporated into these refreshed accommodations!
