    What is the best way to plan our Disney vacation with 7 adults (my husband, me, 5 adult children 20 to 25 yrs) and our two younger kids. (10 & 12 yrs). should i book 2 rooms? should i just go with a villa? seems i have several questions.Should we buy m

    Hi Theresa,

    Planning a trip with a larger group can be overwhelming, but a it will be so much fun when you are on your vacation!

    Because your party totals nine people, you cannot stay in two rooms which accommodate four people each. If you wanted to get two hotel-type rooms, you could book at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, where some of the rooms will sleep five guests. However, with the number of adults you have, and the children being a little older, I think that this would be fairly cramped. The next choice would be to book two family suites. These are available at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort. Each family suite sleeps up to six guests. I like this option over the hotel-type accommodation because each family suite includes a kitchenette, a living area, and two bathrooms. You could also consider booking two cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. These also sleep up to six people each; however, the configuration is a bit different. A cabin has a living area, full kitchen, and one bathroom.

    The final option for staying at a Walt Disney World resort would be a villa. Your party could fit in a two-bedroom villa at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village (as well as some at Jambo House), or Disney's Old Key West Resort. You could also stay in a Treehouse Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. Your traveling party would also be able to stay in any three-bedroom villa. I recommend a two-bedroom villa at Disney's Old Key West Resort. The villas there are quite spacious, which would be nice for your large traveling party. I also recommend the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. They offer a unique experience.

    I would love to help you further plan your magical vacation, Theresa; however, I am limited in the space that I have to answer. Please do write back with your questions!
