    I have a big family 8 of us total, where can we stay without breaking the bank? what disney resort will accommodate us

    Hi there, Nichole!

    There are a couple of options for you. The most economical way is probably two rooms at a Value Resort. Most of the rooms at these resorts can accommodate up to four guests, plus a child aged two or younger. You can request connecting or adjoining rooms, and while the requests cannot be guaranteed, they do give consideration to keeping families together. Some of these resorts, such as Disney's Art of Animation Resort, also feature family suites. The suites can accommodate up to six guests, but if you were to book one of these rooms along with a standard guest room, you could use the kitchenette in the family suite to prepare some breakfast or quick microwave meals for the entire family. That can help save money.

    Another option would be a two-bedroom villa at one of the Deluxe Villa Resorts. This is probably going to a be a pricier option, but these are truly home away from home resorts. You'll have a full kitchen, so you can save some money by preparing meals in your villa. Also in the villas are washers and dryers. I love this, especially when we fly. It saves a fortune on checked baggage fees for my family of seven. 

    One last thing I wanted to mention is the Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. With both tent sites and RV sites, the campground is a great place for bigger families who want to bring their accommodations with them. There are really nice comfort stations conveniently located at the campground, and all the amenities you could hope for.

    Have a wonderful time planning, Nichole!
