    What is the easiest/cheapest way to make reservations for a group of 10? I looked for the complete group, but that’s really high. I can’t figure out how to ask for multiple rooms.

    Hi Leslie,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited to hear that you are planning a visit with a larger group!

    First things first, let me say that my consideration of what is easiest or cheapest actually is shaped by what is a good value for my family. So, we need to start with determining what equates to value for your family. For example, we will pay more to be within walking distance of a park or to be at a resort hotel with access to Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation. For us, the time we save to more quickly access one or more parks adds value to our vacation and that added value justifies an additional expense. So, if you have not done so already, consider the amenities that will add value for your family - is it the resort pools, resort dining options, transportation, or something else?

    To make your planning a little easier, let's be sure that you have divided your group into rooms - i.e. which adults and which children (if children are traveling with you) will be in each room? If you are like me and always on a budget, then you may want to price out 5 people per room which would mean you need two rooms or you could do fewer people per room with more rooms.  

    With five people per room, you will need to find resort hotels that can accommodate that number. Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are a few that have rooms that can accommodate five guests. Disney's Art of Animation Resort has family suites that can accommodate up to six guests. Also consider Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort (which has access to the Disney Skyliner) and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. If you are doing fewer than five people per room, consider Disney's Pop Century Resort (which also has access to the Disney Skyliner).

    Once you know how many adults and children will be in each room and you have a list of preferred resorts, you can check prices and book online. Or, call to speak directly with a cast member who can help you compare prices for the dates of your visit and help make those reservations. Keep in mind also that guests at deluxe, deluxe villa resort, or other select resort hotels have access to extended evening theme park hours, so that may also determine what prices seem like a good value to you!

    Leslie, you've got this! As Princess Tiana would say, you're almost there!

    Magic and memories,
