At the newly-opened Disney’s Riviera Resort last night, a family awoke to a loud bang after a Murphy bed became detached from the wall and fell on top a family member who was sleeping in it.
The Guest was not moving at the time the bed collapsed on top of her. According to the post, it took two people to lift up the bed so their mother could roll out from under. Fortunately, she received only minor bumps and scrapes rather than anything serious. Emergency services were not necessary. Front desk Cast Members told the family that they would attempt to fix it later today.
Pictured above is the Murphy bed featured in Deluxe Studios at Disney’s Riviera Resort. This style of bed is also included in various Villas.
We can only hope that this was a one-time incident, rather than anything indicative, but it’s concerning that such an accident happened on the very first night of operations. In the meantime, exercise caution if you’re staying at Disney’s Riviera Resort and sleeping on the fold-out Murphy bed.
