    We are going to Disney World Dec.31-Jan 6 2018 and we are Vacation Club Members. We have 8 adults and 2 kids. One 9 year and the other one 4 months. Where would be the best place for us to stay and all of us have a place to sleep? Thanks for your help.

    Hi Katlin,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. How magical to be able to visit Walt Disney World to celebrate the New Year!

    You are traveling with a party of 10 guests; however, since one guest is under 3 years old that infant will not count toward the total number of guests in your room for occupancy. You should find a Pack 'n Play crib in your villa for the infant. Therefore, you should look for a villa that can accommodate at least nine guests. The good news is that there are many villas that will sleep this many guests! All of the 3-bedroom Grand Villas will sleep this many. There are also many resorts with 2-bedroom villas that will sleep nine guests. I suggest that you visit the Disney Vacation Club site. On this page, under "Find Destinations," take some time to click on resorts that peak your interest. Once you get to the specific resort website, click on "Rooms & Points" to see the type of villas available at the resort, as well as the specific sleeping arrangements. Let me share with you a few of my favorites, all of which include 2-bedroom villas that can sleep up to nine guests, as well as 3-bedroom Grand Villas.

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is an amazing location. You can walk to Magic Kingdom in under 10 minutes! Another great choice is Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. At this resort, you can experience the magic of exotic animals outside of nearly every window. Finally, Disney's Old Key West Resort is one of my favorite places to spend a relaxing Walt Disney World Vacation. The Florida Keys theme of this resort is tremendously laid-back, and the accommodations are incredibly spacious!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Katlin. Have a wonderful time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions!
