This Disney World Quick Tip goes out to all those families trying to book their Walt Disney World Resort with 5 or more people…

Do you have a family of five or bigger? As you may know, many of the rooms at the Walt Disney Resorts only accommodate four people, thereby it becomes more of a challenge to find a room or combination of rooms to hold your larger family. There are three main categories that you can compare.

1. A Family Suite at All Star Movies or Art of Animation: these sleep up to six people and provide a kitchenette. At least half of the sleeping accommodations are pull out sofas, not beds.

2. Connecting Rooms: you can book 2 regular rooms at any of the resorts and request that they connect. This offers four beds and two bathrooms.

3. A Disney Vacation Club Villa: Villas at DVC resorts sleep anywhere from 4 to 12 people. Some of the studio villas sleep five. You don’t have to be a DVC member to get one of these villas. You can rent points for a very good price from our friends at David’s Vacation Club Rentals!

Planning my next trip, I compared the prices of these three options. For my family of six, it is the most economical for us to rent two studios at Boardwalk Villas through David’s DVC Rentals. The price was cheaper than 2 rooms at Port Orleans French Quarter and a family suite at Art of Animation. Two suites allows us lots of space, two bathrooms, and deluxe accommodations.

If you have a big family, make sure you compare different room options to make sure you are getting the best set-up for the best price. Do you have a tip for families of five or more? Share it with us!

  1. We have used Port Orleans Riverside twice with 5 people. Two queen beds plus a pull down bunk – the pull down is small but okay for kids up to 10 probably.

  2. Don’t forget that Fort Wilderness Cabins also sleep 6. Plus they have a full kitchen as well as a BBQ.

  3. The least expensive one room accomodation that will accomodate 6 people available direct from Disney is the very limited All Star Music Family Suites.
    Port Orleans also has single rooms that will accomodate 5 people. If I remember correctly, the room consists of 2 double beds and a pull down bunk.
    If a child is 1-2 and will sleep comfortably in a pack and play, you can technically have 5 people in the room. It may say ‘sleeps 4’ or ‘sleeps 4+’ on the website, which translates to 4 plus an infant.
