    I would like to take my family of 7 (2 adults and 5 kids) on our first Disney Cruise next summer. Are there any rooms that will fit all of us? If not, what accommodations would you suggest?

    Hi there, Janelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you sailed by with your question about planning your FIRST Disney Cruise Line vacation!  While planning a vacation is one of my favorite things to do, it can also be a big undertaking and somewhat overwhelming at first!  But I am more than happy to help guide you in planning your adventure with Captain Mickey!  And, the best part about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is that once you book your reservation, there isn’t a whole lot left to do!  You will want to book some onboard activities such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations, adult-dining reservations and Port Adventures, but aside from that there aren’t too many other decisions to make!

    I am not sure which Disney Cruise Line ship you are considering sailing on, but there are a couple options for you to consider with a travel party of your size.  Onboard the “classic” Disney Cruise Line ships - the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder - there are two Concierge options that do sleep up to seven Guests.  Concierge-level staterooms include some incredible amenities such as pre-cruise planning assistance, an onboard lounge and priority boarding, but since there are not many of these rooms, they may be a little harder to come by.  If a Concierge level stateroom is not something you are considering OR you are hoping to sail on the Disney Fantasy or the Disney Dream, you would need to consider two staterooms for your family.  All four ships offer connecting staterooms that could easily accommodate your family.  Personally, if I were planning for a group of your size, I would opt for the two-stateroom option.  The extra space you gain with the second room – and an extra bathroom – will come in handy when trying to hustle out of the room in the morning or before dinner!  Connecting staterooms can be viewed on the deck plans with a small break between the staterooms, indicating that they are connecting rooms.

    Currently, itineraries have been released through Summer 2020, so now is the perfect time to begin your planning!  Once you get your voyage booked please visit again with all your planning questions!
