    I'm staying at the Beach club Resort in July. I have a resort view room that sleeps up to 5 adults ( as stated on the Disney world website).Why am I being charged for a third adult in my room when it states that it sleeps up to 5 adults in the room???

    Hello Craig, 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney! I am happy to hear that you are planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort this summer. It's a wonderful time to visit and you've made an excellent choice with Disney's Beach Club Resort.

    While the maximum occupancy is five adults for a Resort View room, instead of charging everyone the maximum occupancy rate, room rates are based on your individual party size. As far as rates go, I suggest calling Walt Disney World Resort to ask them if they can check if you have the best available rate for your stay. You can also keep an eye on the Special Offers page of the Walt Disney World Resort website. Offers are released throughout the year, so even if there isn't one now, I would check occasionally to see if one has become available.

    We love Disney's Beach Club Resort because of its close proximity to EPCOT. It's incredible to stroll over to the International Gateway entrance and start our day in World Showcase. I also recommend planning a day at Stormalong Bay. Not only is the area full of water fun including a slide, lazy river and large sand-bottomed pool, but it also hosts great recreational activities throughout the day. If you plan to spend a day relaxing by the pool, I suggest booking one of the premium poolside cabanas. They offer an incredible location to have a central spot for your party and to be able to get out of the sun if you'd like. My kids would take the best naps in the cabanas when they were little! 

    I hope I have been able to answer your question, Craig. Have a wonderful time planning your vacation and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
