    Hi, We are family of 8 (2 adults and 6 children 3 to 15 years old). We would like to have our niece (11 y.o.) with us so we will be 9 and want to be all together. Which resorts can accomodate us and offer the best experience for big family ?

    Hello Melanie!

    I come from a big family (7 children) so I know that while it can be more difficult to plan any vacation for a large group, the fun always outweighs the hassle. Luckily, Disney offers many Resort options at Walt Disney World Resort to accommodate you and your party!

    The Deluxe Villa Resort Hotels will be the ones able to sleep 9 (sometimes 10 people). Each two-bedroom villa also offers amenities like a full kitchen and a washer & dryer. I've found that while the rooms are more expensive, it's not bad given the number of Guests they sleep and the availability of a full kitchen can save quite a bit of money on meals. The following are resort properties with accommodations to sleep 9 or more:

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas
    Disney's Old Key West Resort
    The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    The Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa

    All of these properties are beautiful and offer different perks based on location. If you want to be close to Magic Kingdom, both Bay Lake Tower and The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort are only a monorail ride away. While Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas and the Treehouse Villas offer a one-of-a-kind experience.

    Have fun planning your magical vacation, Melanie, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.
