    Hello. We are looking at planning a trip to Disney world however it is hard to find exact pricing and room availability as it only lets me choose up to 2 adults and 6 children. We have 8 children ages 14-4 mos. Wondering g how we go about booking rooms?

    Howdy, Megan! Welcome to planDisney.

    A family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort sounds fantastic. As Miguel from Coco says, “We may have our differences, but nothing’s more important than family.” It's so much fun planning a trip, however, it can be overwhelming.

    Let me try and give you some help. Unfortunately, the Walt Disney World Resort website only allows you to price up a vacation for up to six children. Therefore, I would encourage you to speak to a friendly Cast Member. You can even let them know your budget and they can find something that meets your needs. Another option is to use an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner. You can find these by doing a simple Google search. There are a number of no-fee agents who can help you plan your vacation (often even saving you a good chunk of money in the process).

    As a Disney dad, I'm always trying to wisely budget for my Disney trips. Here are some ways I try to save:

    - I usually try to visit the Theme Parks on weekdays since tickets are typically more expensive on weekends.
    - We bring our own snacks for the whole family. We stuff our backpacks full of granola bars, beef jerky, dried fruit, nuts, etc., so that we don't blow our budget on all the tempting treats sold in the parks.
    - We bring our own refillable water bottles. There are plenty of refill stations in the Theme Parks. And did you know that you can also ask for free ice water from any quick-service restaurant?
    - We skip the fine dining. With young kids, mealtimes aren't the most enjoyable times of the day anyway (to put it charitably). There are some wonderful quick-service restaurants around Walt Disney World too.
    - We sometimes enjoy a "free" day around Walt Disney World Resort. So instead of visiting a Theme Park one day, we might take a stroll around Disney's BoardWalk, or say "hi" to the animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, or take to the skies and enjoy the sights on Disney Skyliner, or browse the many stores at Disney Springs, or rest and relax by the hotel pool, or take a water taxi across Seven Seas Lagoon.

    As Scrooge McDuck, "Look after the pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves." I hope you're able to find a great deal on your Disney vacation, Megan. 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. See ya real soon!
