    I am coming to Disney World next year with my children and grand children. Want to stay at the Pop Century resort. Would it be better for me to reserve the 3 rooms we need or let them reserve their own? I want to make sure our room close to each other.

    Welcome to planDisney, Debra! Your big family visit sounds like it is going to be a wonderful vacation! I always enjoy it when my family visits with the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!
    Those multi-generational visits make for some of the best Walt Disney World Resort memories!

    I always feel that it is best to allow each family to book their own accommodations. Doing so ensures that the reservation falls under the right person’s name and credit card. Thus, avoiding any confusion during the vacation or when paying for final charges upon checking out at the end of the vacation.

    When my parents choose to come along on vacation with my family, I usually help them at the computer when selecting their room and theme park tickets. They use their credit card so that the reservation is under their name, but I assist them with booking the resort and theme park tickets (package). I find this also makes things easier when setting up everyone’s My Disney Experience account for things such as MagicBands and making Disney Genie+ purchases.

    Upon checking in at the resort we request to have our rooms placed nearby. The resort always does its best to get us in proximity to each other!

    Debra, it’s so nice to have the whole family together! Don’t forget to stop for photos with the Disney PhotoPass photographers! They can be found in all four Disney Parks! They will capture your family together in some of the most picturesque settings! Your photos will then be available for purchase in your My Disney Experience account! 

    Dreams do come true!
