    We are a family of 5 with kids age 12,6,3. We are looking at 5th sleeper rooms at CBR and port Orleans. I’m having difficulty figuring out where the rooms are and which would be less walking as we are also traveling with granparents requesting conjoined

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Kelsey. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Yay!

     My family of five loves Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort AND Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Both these resorts feature affordable 5th sleeper rooms, making them a perfect fit for our crew. I can understand having some difficulty figuring out where the 5th Sleeper rooms are throughout the resorts, and I certainly understand being concerned about walking too! Let's chat.

     At Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, you can find Standard View 5th Sleeper rooms in the islands of Trinidad, Aruba, and Jamaica. Preferred 5th Sleeper rooms are in the islands of Barbados and Martinique, and Water or Pool View 5th Sleeper rooms are available in all five islands. I recommend booking a Preferred 5th Sleeper room and requesting the island of Barbados. Barbados is just a quick walk away from the Disney Skyliner and Old Port Royale. Jamaica is a great location too!

     All the 5th Sleeper rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside are in the Alligator Bayou area. Standard View 5th Sleeper rooms are in buildings 16, 17, 24, 34, 35, 36, and 37. Preferred rooms, which feature a 5th Sleeper are in buildings 14, 15, 27, and 18. Woods View 5th Sleeper rooms are in all buildings aside from 14, 15, 27, and 18, and River View 5th Sleeper rooms are in buildings 14, 27, and 38. Phew! That's a lot, right? Long story short - I recommend booking a Preferred 5th Sleeper room at Disney's Port Orleans Resort for its proximity to Sassagoula Steamboat Company and Ol' Man Island.

     Still not sure which of these Disney Resort hotels to select? It's so hard! One of the (many!) reasons family loves Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is because it features easy access to the Disney Skyliner. My sons love Disney's Hollywood Studios, and we can get there quickly and easily with the Disney Skyliner! At Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, we love that we can take a leisurely boat ride down the Sassagoula River to Disney Springs, where can shop and eat to our hearts' content!

     I hope this was helpful, Kelsey. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
