Comfort


#1

Just wondering if there is a huge difference in the comfort of the beds and pillows from a Moderate Resort to a Deluxe Resort?


#2

I bet there is. I can tell you that the beds at POR are pretty hard, and I don’t like those skimpy sheets with those thin blankets that they have, but I can’t afford the deluxe and I don’t want to stay at a Value, so that’s it for me.

The new beds at the Contemporary are Great!!! :smile:


#4

They look comfy :wink:

To me, nothing is like sleeping in your OWN bed. I will say, that no matter what level of resort we have stayed, I cannot get used to the hard edges of the mattresses. They are there to keep the mattresses from breaking down I guess. We do not have that at home, and it totally bugs me.

I can’t comment on moderates but last summer I stayed at Pop and my sister stayed at the Poly. Her beds were definitely more plush and comfy. With that said, by the time I got back to my room I fell asleep so quickly that it didn’t matter where I was sleeping.

I will say that the renovated Poly room beds seemed also more comfy than the unrenovated GF beds that I stayed at the year before.

I think there is a definate difference, I can remember the POly beds being of the ‘swallow you up’ variety :laugh: . I remember lying on that bed and sinking into it. However, the ones at POR are good enough for us. Very comfy and great pillows but I don’t like the sheets and blankets all that much.

When we get home, we fall into bed and instantly go comatose. I can’t even remember the beds! I do remember one fold-out sofa that was particularly hard, though.

DEFINITELY a difference. We stayed at AKL in December of 2006. The beds were very comfortable, as were the pillows. After staying there we never wanted to go back to a moderate…unfortunately, we cant afford the deluxe anymore. That year we got lucky.

After a day at WDW, lying on a bench is comfortable… :laugh:

Actually, I didn’t think the All-Star beds were that bad, and I’m spoiled…


#11

You know, I wonder how often they change the mattresses at the resorts. I remember we had horrible beds at WL one time, then on another visit, they were great. But I do agree with CaraMia, the nicest beds we ever had at WDW were at AKL.


#12

I love my own bed but the POR beds are reasonably comfortable and we soon get used to them. I find them a little high off the ground but then that may be because I am small :slight_smile:


#13

I think that the mattresses and pillows at the deluxe resort are def. more comfortable than those at the moderates. That is not to say that I haven’t been perfectly comfortable at a moderate, just more so at a deluxe.:happy: I agree that the sheets and blankets are much nicer at the deluxe resorts as well.


#14

There is a difference, but I can’t quite recall how different.
Another consideration is how recently that hotel has replaced it’s mattresses. Poly and Contemporary have some pretty new mattresses. I think the beds we had at WL in December were ok. My complaint is “Why don’t they use fitted sheets for the bottom?!” I hate when my bed falls apart or is short sheeted. The value bed we had at Pop was pretty hard.


#15

I htink there’s a difference between the resorts in both the beds and towels. The sheets, pillows, and beds aren’t as comfortable at the moderates and values. We also need a queen size bed and the mods and values only have double beds.

I also noticed a big difference in the towels. I like a thick fluffy towel and the towels we had at POR this past Christmas were pretty thin and small.


#16

I noticed the difference in the towels as well. And I really wish the mods had queen size beds.


#17

The towels almost felt like they weren’t even bath size, they were so little and worn out.


#18

Well, you have got to get more comfort at a deluxe. It’s included in the price :laugh:
The towels that aren’t so perfect anymore are handed down to the moderates and make their way to the values :closedeye


#19

Thank goodness that wasn’t our experience. Thick and thirsty and very white.

I think the beds at POFQ are very comfortable…the ones at the Polynesian were heavenly however…AKL’s…not so much. I guess it just depends on the resort and not the level of the resort…got me??
