    I have 3 adults and 3 children wanting to stay in one standard room but this seems to exceed capacity...is this not at all an option with the resorts? The suites are so much more expensive. Looking for some expert advice:)

    Hi Erica,

    Thanks for your excellent question. I'm happy to help you sort out the options for a family group of your size. 

    You are correct that most standard rooms, especially at the value resorts, have a capacity of four adults. Port Orleans Riverside has rooms with two queen beds and a pull down child-sized bed. You could make that work only if one of the children is 2 or younger and sleeping in a Pack 'n Play. And it would still be a tight squeeze with only one bathroom.

    Your other most economical options on Walt Disney World property:

    You could book two connecting rooms at a value resort such as All-Star Sports, All-Star Music, All-Star Movies or Pop Century. That would give you two bathrooms, four double beds and a little elbow room.

    For about the same price, however, you could book a family suite at All-Star Music, which would give you four beds, two bathrooms and a kitchenette.

    Or, the option I would seriously consider, would be a cabin at Fort Wilderness. Again, it is a little more than two standard rooms, but you have sleeping space for six, a full kitchen, a living room, an outdoor grill and a patio with a picnic table. The cabins, too, have one bathroom, but the other amenities, plus the beautiful setting, would make it a serious consideration for me if I were in your situation. The full kitchen would give you the opportunity to save on meals, which might help with the cost.

    I hope that helps a bit with your decision. Please let us know if the Disney Parks Moms Panel can answer other questions or offer more advice as you plan your vacation.
