    Hello! I want to book a villa/suite and a standard room for a family of 6 (4 adults, 2 children). I am aware that I need to make 2 reservations but I want to know if there are standard rooms adjacent to villas at any resort or not. Thanks, Alejandra

    Hi Alejandra and welcome to planDisney! I would be more than happy to give you some Disney Resort Collection hotel options that will be able to accommodate your party of six!

    Alejandra, to start, I want you to know that you don’t need to make 2 reservations to accommodate four adults and two children. Family Suites found at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort can accommodate six adults in one suite. These suites feature one queen bed, two queen-size pull-down beds, two bathrooms, and a kitchenette with a refrigerator! An added benefit to choosing a Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort would be the ability to access Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT by using the Disney Skyliner!

    Aside from the Family Suites mentioned above, there is an important distinction to point out between a standard Disney Resort Collection hotel suite and a Villa. A suite will usually include a bedroom that is separated from a living space and may have a beverage cooler or mini refrigerator, pending the resort. A Villa is a part of the Disney Vacation Club located at a Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, and will either have a kitchenette with microwave, toaster, and mini-refrigerator (Deluxe Studio) or a full kitchen (1-, 2-, 3-bedroom Villas). A Deluxe Studio can sleep four to five Guests, and the 1-,2-, and 3-bedroom Villas can sleep anywhere from four to 12 Guests, pending the resort, but will also have a living room, dining room table, and washer and dryer in the unit.

    Now that we have made the distinction between a suite and a Villa, if you were to book a suite and a standard studio room with two separate reservations, you would want to request the rooms to be adjacent to each other by contacting Disney Resort Hotel Reservations. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that this can be accommodated, but the Cast Members will do their best.

    If you were interested in a Villa at one of the Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts, I would suggest booking a 2-bedroom Villa to ensure your entire party can be together, and you would only have to make one reservation. Typically, the 2-bedroom Villas are made by opening the connecting door between a Deluxe Studio and a 1-bedroom Villa, thus creating a 2-bedroom Villa. But, if you were to book a Deluxe Studio and 1-bedroom Villa on two different reservations, similar to the request for adjoining rooms through Disney Resort Hotel Reservations for a suite and standard studio, the Cast Members will attempt to accommodate your request, but it is not guaranteed. 

    I hope this information helps you with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning, Alejandra. I know that planning the perfect visit can include a lot of hard decisions, so if I can be of any more assistance, please don’t hesitate to submit a question directly to me for more recommendations!
