    Hiya, I’m wanting to book a Disneyland holiday for a surprise for my children we are a family of 6 with a severely autistic child the Disneyland hotel offer any rooms of 6 as I can only see an occupancy of 5? With many thanks Kim

    Hi, Kimberley!

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m so happy to hear you want to plan a magical surprise trip for your family! There’s something for kids of all ages to enjoy at the Disneyland Resort, so I think it’s the perfect place to vacation with your loved ones.

    Most standard hotel rooms only sleep up to 4 or 5 people. However, you can request connecting rooms at all three Disneyland Resort Hotels, including the Disneyland Hotel, pending availability. Another option to guarantee you all share the same space would be to book a 1- or 2-bedroom suite, which can also be reserved at any of the Disneyland Resort Hotels as well. The largest suite can even sleep up to 14 people, and they all have a main parlor with seating that includes a couch, armchairs, and a dining table with chairs. 

    Photos of all the room types can be viewed at disneyland.com to help you get a feel for the layout of each space and the magical details in the decor. I also want to mention that the nearby Good Neighbor Hotels can be another option for large families who want to stay close to the magic at a Disney-approved hotel if the accommodations you need aren’t available at an on-property hotel for your chosen dates. There is a good selection of hotels offering suites and adjoining rooms that could accommodate your whole family. 

    I also want to make sure you're aware of the Disneyland Resort’s Disability Access Service (DAS) program. It is designed for Guests who aren’t able to wait for attractions in a traditional standby queue due to a disability, injury, or medical condition. It can allow you and your family (up to 6 people total, including your child who may need DAS) to receive a return time for attractions based on the current wait time. Each person’s needed accommodations are considered on an individual basis, but if DAS sounds like a service that would make your family's visit easier, you are welcome to inquire about registering in one of two ways. The first option is to participate in a pre-arrival virtual meeting via live video chat. You can also stop by City Hall in Disneyland Park, the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park, or a Guest Information location once you arrive at the resort. Either way, please be prepared to speak with a Cast Member in detail about your child's specific needs.

    I hope this information helps you plan. Have a wonderfully pixie-dusted vacation with your family, Kimberley, and please ask us any other questions you might have as your planning continues!

    Wishing you magic,
