    We want to bring our family of five to Disney. Two adults, a 14, 13 and 11 year old. Where do you recommend staying?


    Rest-assured, you've got lots of choices for a family of 5 at Disney--and for every budget!

    • Port Orleans: Riverside.  Your most economical choice, its trundle-bed rooms would accommodate your family.  When we went, our kids fought over the trundle.  Keep in mind, though, that it is more like a thin mattress on a slide than the usual trundle mattress on springs. 
    • All-Star Music.  Its jazz suites sport two bathrooms and a kitchenette, not to mention a separate bedroom.  The best part: no cries of "mom, he's/she's touching me!!!" as they also have a chair and ottoman than make out into deluxe cots similar to rollaway beds.
    • Fort Wilderness Cabin: A double bed with two bunks are in a separate bedroom from the large kitchen and living area with a Murphy bed.  Our family loves the deck and it grill, there's plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, especially if you've got kids who love the outdoors.
    • Deluxe Resorts:  Most of Disney's Deluxe Resorts offer sleeping for 5 because of the inclusion of a day bed.  For your family, I'd recommend looking at Beach Club which sports its own water wonderland of Stormalong Bay or the Polynesian with its views of Magic Kingdom, the monorail or the pool and its "erupting" volcano!  The Polynesian has monorail service to Magic Kingdom and Epcot while Beach Club enjoys boat transportation to Disney Studios and Epcot!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
