    I have 8 adults and 5 children. 4 adults, 2 adults with 2 children, and 2 adults with 3 children would be in 3 separate rooms. How should we plan this?

    Welcome to planDisney, Linda!

    We absolutely love visiting Walt Disney World, but vacationing there with other families is even more magical!

    When we visit, we love the extra space provided by staying in some of the roomier options that are available in multiple Walt Disney World Resort hotels. For a glimpse at some of those options, take a look at a Walt Disney World Deluxe Villa, a cabin at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, or even a Family Suite at a resort such as Disney's All-Star Music Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort. For something unlike anything else, take a look at a Treehouse Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. We've stayed there with that exact configuration of kids and adults, and it was absolutely perfect!

    All of those resorts feature options such as full kitchens, kitchenettes, additional full bathrooms, in-room laundry facilities, living spaces, multiple televisions, separate sleeping areas, and so much more. When you travel with a larger party of two families, chances are the kids are going to want to spend some time together pre- and post-park, and the grownups will enjoy getting some adult conversation with each other while the kiddos are making magical memories of their own. These spaces were crafted with that very detail in mind. 

    You could all comfortably fit in one 2 or 3 Bedroom Villa in any of the Walt Disney World Deluxe Villas, making your time away from the parks just as enjoyable as the time you spend touring. Booking two of The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort would give you ample space to visit and play outdoors, too, when heading "home" for the evening. Two Family Suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort would give each family a kitchenette plus added living space, two full baths, and a separate sleeping area. Disney's Art of Animation Resort also features all of these details plus some super-fun decor themed around The Lion King, Cars, and Finding Nemo.

    A stay at a Treehouse Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, though, will be like nothing else in all of Walt Disney World. Featuring three bedrooms (one with bunk beds), a living area with both a sofa bed and a sleeper chair, two full bathrooms, a full kitchen, washer/dryer in unit, plus an outdoor dining area/deck and parking, you'll never want to leave. It's absolutely beautiful. 

    Once you decide where you'll stay, be sure to add each other to your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account. That will enable you to plan this magical vacation together!

    As you plan, be sure to send additional questions our way, Linda. We love to help!
