I really cant sleep on those horrible half size strange puffed up bean bag like pillows

Do mousekeeping have any different ones we could ask for or should we take our own next time

ME! Me! Me! When I first stayed at the BC (years ago) I LOVED the pillows. Now they are all those silly little things. What's UP with that? :(

It's not just Disney. All the hotels I've stayed in lately (I travel a lot for work) have those stupid little pillows. :sigh;

ME but I'm mega surprised to see anyone else say so! I really thought it was just me!

I much prefer a firmer "colder" :lol: pillow. I'm forever trying to build little pillow walls with them to rest my head on. With the standard ones it's like there's nothing there and whether thats better for my neck/back or not, it means I can't sleep.

I dont know if you can ask for different ones :/

I've never noticed to be honest and I sleep ok there so maybe I do like them.

Maybe you could take your own in one of those vacuum bags we were talking about.

I hadn't noticed either, I have terrible trouble sleeping at home but go out like a light at Disney, think it has something to do with being up at 6 - 6.30am every day and then 12 hour days at the parks :lol:

I'm usually so tired, I barely notice the pillows.

never had a problem with them to be honest. Always asleep in seconds :)

I always take at least one of my own pillows with me. Can I tell you how much of a pain it is to squish it into my suitcase too :lol:

The ones at Coronado Springs drove me crazy...... next time I'm going to buy one or two at WalMarts and leave it behind when I'm done.

I don't love them, but don't have any difficulty sleeping at WDW. If they bother me, I just don't use them!

Leu packs her own pillow--she doesn't sleep well away from home and it does seem to help her a bit.

My husband and I always have pillow issues. Did you know that you can order pillows for purchase at gardengrocer.com? So you can get your groceries for the week and extra pillows. I don't know how you would get them home though if you were flying. I just thought that was funny.

OOOH!! Great information DWM!!! Thanks for sharing!

I don't like the pillows either. They are way too small.

07-09-2008, 02:24 PM
My problem isn't the size, it's that they are foam and I love my feather/down pillows :D

At the Polynesian there was a small brochure that offered bedding, linens, pillows and a Mickey candle stick type lamp for sale. The pillows in that brochure certainly looked nicer than the ones on the bed.

At the Polynesian at least they have a large decorative pillow on the beds along with the regular (small :( ) pillows. You can use that for propping and support. I think they do that there because their headboards are so elaborate and uncomfortable to lean against. :yes:

I hate any pillows anywhere other than my own. I end up bartering with my dad for one of his!
