    I'm looking to book a trip for my family (myself, wife, and three kids - 5, 3, and 1). We'd like to stay on property but have found that most double Queen bed rooms are cramped and family suites are too expensive. Any recommendations on hotels?

    Hey there, hi there! 

    I'm familiar with not talking ABOUT Bruno, but I'm glad there are no rules regarding talking TO Bruno because I sure am happy to welcome you to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for us. 

    One of my favorite things about planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is choosing the perfect Disney Resorts Collection hotel for my family. I love being immersed in the magic; when you leave the theme parks, the incredible Disney storytelling and theming follow you back to your Disney Resort hotel, so I totally understand your wanting to stay on property. I'd be happy to give you suggestions that will have your family of five enjoying their stay.

    Two great resort hotels that are both budget-friendly and have a 5th sleeper option are Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. My cousin's family of five recently stayed at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside Resort, and they fell in love with it. These rooms have two Queen Beds and one Child-Size Pull-Down Bed, which worked so well for her 10-year-old kiddo, she came home asking for one in her own room!

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort's 5th sleeper is equipped with two Queen Beds and one Child-Size Pull-Down Bed; or one Queen Bed, one Queen-Size Pull Down Bed, and one Child-Size Pull-Down Bed. The great thing about Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is that Guests can enjoy access to the Disney Skyliner and take to the skies as they're transported to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT! 

    If storing luggage is a problem, take it from someone who overpacks every single trip: use the space provided under the beds to keep some of your luggage. It helps clear out so much of the clutter. 

    If you haven't already, check out the Family Suites at Disney's All-Star Music Resort. These are more budget-friendly when it comes to suites and have one Queen Bed, two Queen-Size Pull Down Beds, and can sleep up to six adults. 

    Since you're coming with little ones, I hope you've heard about Baby Care Centers in all four theme parks. The Baby Care Centers provide a convenient place to feed, change, or nurse little Mouseketeers. My family spent a lot of time there when my kids were younger, and I can vouch for how wonderful these centers are. 

    While discussing visiting with little ones, I'd also like to tell you about the Rider Switch service! This feature allows adult Guests to take turns waiting with kiddos or Guests who cannot ride an attraction and allows the waiting adult to board the attraction when the first adult returns to take over supervising duties without having to wait in the regular queue! 

    We can't wait to welcome you to the magic, Bruno! Have an enchanting visit.
