    If we are a family of 5, is there a way we can book connecting rooms at the all star resorts?

    Hi Hannah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad that you found us hEAR, and thank you for sending us this great Walt Disney World Resort planning question!

    Most Disney Resort Hotels do have rooms that have connecting doors. However, these types of rooms can't be guaranteed at the time of the reservation. And actually, most resort hotel room-assigning software doesn't kick in until a few days before a guests checks-in, so the best time to make this request is in-person at check-in. While that doesn't provide any peace of mind when booking, I do have a few different suggestions that might work better for your family and your budget! Some Disney Resort Hotels have enough bed space to accommodate five individuals per room by way of two queen-sized beds and one "child-sized" pull-down bed. (These are called child-sized, but I technically fit length wise.) These "5th Sleeper" rooms can be found at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort can sleep up to six and they feature a full kitchen. And Disney's Art of Animation is famous for its 'Family Suites' that can sleep six and have two bathrooms.

    But wait, there's more! My absolute new favorite option is the best of both worlds because Disney's All-Star Music Resort is currently remodeling their Family Suites to feature brand new everything: new furniture, new decor, even a brand new layout vs. what the rooms looked like before. These rooms also feature two bathrooms, and the redesigned kitchen area features a full-sized fridge with a freezer compartment as well as a microwave. The parent's bedroom and bathroom are behind their own door suite-style, and the two queen-sized beds in the living room area are pull-down murphy-beds that become a four-person table and also a couch when folded. There aren't any current pictures of these rooms as the remodel is scheduled to last a few more months, but the finished product looks very similar to the newly refreshed rooms at Disney's All-Star Movies, or you can find a few really great walk through tours on youtube. (Search "Refurbished All-Star Music Family Suites.") And something else that I like about All-Star Music is that it's located between the other two All-Star Resort Hotels, so you could easily walk to the others if you wanted to explore their decor or eat breakfast at a different hotel one morning.

    I hope this helped you to find the perfect beds for your heads, Hannah, and if you have any other Walt Disney World Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
