    When and where is the most cost effective time/place for a family of 5 to stay at WDW? Ages of 3 kids 8,5,3

    Hi Jacilyn!

    There are two wonderful options for your family of five at Walt Disney World that are a great value!

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort has Family Suites that sleep up to six people. I love this resort because the theming is amazing and the rooms are spacious. The Big Blue Pool is themed after Nemo and it is the largest throughout all of Walt Disney World. There is also a playground nearby, great for young kids to burn off energy. The room has one queen sized bed in a separate bedroom and the living room has a double sized Table Bed and double sized sleeper sofa. There is also a kitchenette and two bathrooms. 

    Another great option is The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. The cabins can sleep up to six adults and even come with bunk beds! I love the cabins because you get plenty of space for the family, with a living room, kitchen and huge deck with a grill. There are also a lot of fun activities you can do at this resort, such as archery, boat rentals and pony rides

    The best time to visit Walt Disney World is during value season. Check out the Disney World website for details on the rates for different times of year. Go to the room rates for The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Lodge, click on "Rate Details" then "View Seasonal Pricing". The best rates are usually the first two weeks of February, late August, September and the first two weeks of November. You can also call 407-WDW-5277 for details on rates at different times of the year.
