    Which DVC 1 bedroom units can sleep 5 people, (FL, CA, & HI)? We have a snorer in our family, so we need 2 separate sleeping areas. We are considering buying into DVC someday, but so far we’ve only paid cash to stay at Bay Lake Tower, which we liked!

    Hi Jean,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am so pleased to hear that you have already tried a Disney Vacation Club resort, also known as a Deluxe Villa resort. Any guest can book these resorts using a traditional payment method such as a cash or a credit card. This is a great way to see if Disney Vacation Club is right for you. Since you are considering becoming members, I highly recommend taking the Open House Tour. At an Open House Tour, a guide will be able to answer questions individually to you about if Disney Vacation Club membership is right for you. 

    I have also stayed in a one-bedroom villa at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary resort, and I love how spacious they are! My family also really appreciates the separation of space in a one-bedroom villa. The resorts at Walt Disney World that can accommodate five guests in a one-bedroom villa are: Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Old Key West Resort, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - both Kidani Village and Jambo House. Do be careful when booking Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House, as there are one-bedroom units there that accommodate either four or five guests. The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa in California and Aulani Disney Vacation Club Villas in Hawaii both accommodate five guests in the one-bedroom villas. Both Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort and Disney's Vero Beach Resort also can accommodate up to five guests in their one-bedroom villas.  

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Jean! If you do decide to become a Disney Vacation Club member, it will be truly magical the first time you arrive and hear those wonderful words, "Welcome home."
