    Our children are young (12,8,6,3). Our youngest still co-sleeps with us. I don’t like the idea of my children sleeping in a separate room, even if connecting. Are there rooms available that aren’t concierge that don’t discriminate against larger families?

    Hi Christina,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing your question to us.

    How exciting it will be to embark on a Disney Cruise Line vacation with your crew! Your family will make memories you will cherish forever. Each of your kids can enjoy time in the special areas created for their age groups, staffed by talented and caring Crew Members, and there is so much for families to enjoy together.

    I know it is challenging to find the perfect accommodations for a family your size. As you may have already discovered, the Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah and Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah sleep up to seven Guests. On Disney Cruise Line most staterooms accommodate 3-4 Guests, but many accommodate up to 5 Guests. For your family, you will need to book two connecting staterooms. 

    I understand your concern about booking connecting staterooms. I have stayed in connecting staterooms several times and hope to offer some helpful tips. First, with young children, you might feel more comfortable booking Inside or Oceanview Staterooms. In both Inside and Oceanview, there is no access to a verandah from either stateroom, which might set your mind at ease. Also, you can keep the door between the staterooms open, creating an easy two-bedroom flow. When you book these rooms, you must select one adult to stay in each room, which might work well for your family. 

    There are plenty of connecting staterooms to choose from. My planDisney pal, Diane W., shares that Disney Magic and Disney Wonder have 137 connecting staterooms, while the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy feature over 500. The Disney Wish and Disney Treasure have 451 connecting staterooms to accommodate larger families. I'm certain you will find the right combination for your family.

    Christina, I hope this information is helpful as you make your plans. Please reach out to us again if you have other questions; we are happy to help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
