    I am going to Disney World w/ a family of 5. Most hotels accomodate 4 people. We are on a budget, which hotel do you recommend for 5 people? (2 adults, 3 kids..ages 14, 9 and 4)

    Hi, Valentina!  I cannot recommend enough the Port Orleans Riverside resort.  It's true that many of the accommodations at Walt Disney World have a four person maximum - especially in the value and moderate resort categories - but Port Orleans Riverside has some rooms with a trundle bed, which will allow them to accommodate a fifth person.  The bed is not terrible roomy, but for your four year old or nine year old, it should be just fine.

    Many of the other rooms that will accommodate a family of this size are the deluxe resorts, but you might also want to look into the All Star Music Family Suites.  For a little more money, you will have two bathrooms, a small kitchenette with a small refrigerator and a microwave, and a separate bedroom where mom and dad can sleep!  In value season, these accommodations run about $190 per night, but my family always saves a good bit of money on breakfasts and snacks with the use of the fridge and microwave.

    I know the challenge of finding reasonably priced accommodations for a family of five, since I have three daughters.  I hope I've been able to help you find something comfortable that fits your family and your budget!
