    Do the hotels listing 5 adults allow 6 in the room if there are 4 children in the party?

    Hiya, Kyle!

    If the maximum occupancy of the Walt Disney World resort hotel you are looking at is 5 adults, that means you can have up to 5 people, plus one child under the age of 2. For safety reasons, anyone over the age of 2 must be counted as an occupant of the room. There are Pack 'n' Play style beds available for the children under 2.

    If your party does not include that one child under 2, Hakuna Matata! There are resort options available for you. First, check out Disney's Art of Animation Resort. The resort features family suites, which can accommodate a family of up to six. You'll have two bathrooms, a small kitchenette, and even a separate bedroom, so if the grown ups want to stay up a bit later, you have a private space to watch a little television or sit up and plan the next day.

    Another option to look at is the Cabins at Fort Wilderness. With sleeping for six, these rustic yet modern cabins have full kitchens, a lovely deck to sit out on and watch the wildlife, and even a charcoal grill if you want to throw some burgers and brats on for dinner one night. 

    Well worth a look are the Deluxe Villa Resorts. These accommodations come in all shapes and sizes, and some of them will sleep as many as 12 people. Many have complete kitchens, a washer and dryer in the room, and separate sleeping areas. 

    I hope you find the resort that is practically perfect for your family, Kyle!
