    My family of 7, is wanting to stay at the Art of Animation resort. Two of my children are on the Autism spectrum, so for safety reasons, we all need to be in the same room. Would they let us stay in one family suite?

    Dear Kristy,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning your Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay.

    If one of your family members is under the age of three, you would be able to have the 7 of you all in one family suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. If that's not the case, then unfortunately you would not all be able to stay in one suite. There are some other options that might work for you, depending on availability and budget. There are several Walt Disney World Resort hotel options that have multi-bedroom villas that would accommodate all of you in one shared space. Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, for example, has 2-bedroom villas and treehouse villas that might be wonderful for your family.  

    Alternatively, you could book two rooms and request rooms near each other. However, there is no guarantee that you would get shared or connected rooms. 

    Also, since you mentioned that you have family members with autism, have you checked out the disability services available during your stay? Some of the assistance that is offered might be super helpful to you!

    Hope that helps you with your magical vacation!
