    I just booked a Polynesian standard room a few weeks ago (Aug 31- Sep 6). Now my mother-in-law is coming, too - how can I add her or is 6 too many (even though 3 are little kids)? Or find a 2nd room (seems sold out Fri-Sat night!)?

    Hi Anne Marie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Hot Diggity Dog! Only two weeks until you and your family arrive at Walt Disney World! And a stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! This is going to be a magical Disney vacation! This resort has so much to offer in terms of amenities, dining, and recreation!

    Standard resort rooms at the Polynesian Village Resort sleep up to five Guests. If your party already consists of five, a sixth Guest will not be allowed to occupy this room. However, if one of the three children is under 3 years old, then they would be considered a toddler and not included in the five Guests. If this is the case, I suggest calling the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations line and speaking to a Cast Member for assistance. They will be able to add your mother-in-law to your resort reservation and make sure the toddler is accounted for properly. Keep in mind that if your park tickets are connected to your resort reservation, your mother-in-law will need to add the same ticket package as the rest of the party. You may be able to make these changes using your My Disney Experience account and bypass having to call, so I would consider exploring this option first.

    On the flip side, if your children are all 3 years of age or older, a second resort room will need to be reserved to accommodate every Guest. I did just take a peek at availability at the Polynesian Village Resort for your travel dates, and I was able to find a standard resort room available for this time. Since availability is constantly changing, I would highly recommend booking this reservation quickly.

    While the Polynesian Village Resort only offers rooms that sleep up to five Guests (excluding the Bungalows, which sleep up to eight), there may be additional resorts that offer different room types that accommodate more Guests. It may be advantageous to your family to have everyone share one room as opposed to booking two rooms. I would consider checking what else is available during this time if that option works best for your family.

    Anne Marie, I hope this information helps you make the proper adjustments to your upcoming trip! Have a magical time during your stay!

    See ya real soon!
