    My husband, 4 yr old, twins (who will be 20mths when traveling) and I are planning our 1st trip. Are we considered a family that needs something larger than a regular room? I noticed most rooms say up to 4 guest plus a crib. Is that us? Recommendations?

      Hi, Pamela!  The number of people in a room only refers to guests age three and over, so your 20 month old twins do not count towards the maximum occupancy of the rooms.  That means if a room says it is for up to four guests, you still qualify to occupy that room. 

    If you are considering a moderate resort, I would recommend that you also consider the All Star Music family suites.  These are located at the All Star Music resort, so it is a value resort, but the suite itself is great for larger families who are sticking to a budget.  You will get a separate bedroom for mom and dad that comes equipped with a television, king sized bed, a desk, etc.  The living room area has three fold out options, including a full size sleeper sofa and two single beds.  You also get two full bathrooms in the suite, which is a big help for major potty emergencies, or just for getting everyone showered and out the door in the morning.

    You also get a small refrigerator and a microwave, and that can help save a little money in terms of heating up some small items and storing drinks and yogurt in the refrigerator.  This helps save money and time!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
