    Where is the best place to stay, and the most economical for 4 kids ages 3-5, 4 adults and 2 grandparents?

    Hi Donna Marie,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! I am happy to help you start to think about a place to stay for your magical Walt Disney World vacation.

    It sounds like you have a party of 10 traveling. Where you stay will be determined in part by how you break up the party into rooms. If you need three rooms, you could stay in rooms that have a maximum occupancy of four guests. If you can stay in two rooms, you could stay in rooms that had a maximum occupancy of five guests. Let me offer you some options.

    If you decide that you want to stay in three rooms, you could stay at a value resort hotel in standard rooms. The value resorts offer the lowest price point per room at Walt Disney World, still with all of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    If you decide that you can stay in two rooms, you could choose a family suite at Disney's All-Star Music Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort, which are both value resorts. The family suites sleep up to six guests. Another option is that there are a couple of moderate resort hotels which can accommodate up to five guests per room. These are Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. If you choose either of these, be sure to choose a room category that accommodates up to five guests.

    Disney offers a great tool that will allow you to compare up to four Walt Disney World resort hotels. I suggest that you try out this tool with some of the resorts above.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Donna Marie! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
