    Looking to book a Walt Disney world vacation in August. We have 6 adults and would like to find a room that holds us all or multiple rooms next to each other without raising the costs more than needed.

    Hiya Brad - welcome to planDisney!

    I love an adults-only trip to Walt Disney World Resort and am glad that you stopped by with a question about accommodations for our team of panelists!

    The majority of the standard rooms at many Disney Resorts Collection hotels will accommodate up to four or five adults, though, for rooms that do accommodate a fifth adult, it will typically be on a smaller pull-down bed that definitely can't fit someone on the taller side like me. Since you mentioned that all Guests will be adults, I think it's important to mention how Disney describes occupancy for rooms. While I consider anything smaller than a Queen too small to share, Disney does consider Double/Full-size beds to fit two adults. For that reason, you'll really want to think about who is sleeping where, and with whom, and comparing that to the specific beds offered in each room.

    In general, if you're trying to maximize your budget and comfort, I think your crew will be most comfortable in two connecting rooms at any of the Value Resort Hotels. Each room will typically sleep up to four adults in two Queen- or Double/Full-size beds. It's important to note that connecting rooms are requested, but not guaranteed. I've only requested them twice and everything worked out, but availability is technically limited and while Cast Members will try, it's not always possible. In these situations, I know the Resort will try to place you in rooms that are very close to one another if connecting rooms are not available.

    The same advice applies to the rooms at most Moderate Resort Hotels, which usually cost a bit more, but you may prefer them because of the amenities. For example, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has fantastic access to the Disney Skyliner, and Disney's Coronado Springs Resort has some amazing dining options.

    A 2-bedroom Villa at one of the Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts is another option. These rooms typically have one bedroom with two Queen-size beds, one with a King, as well as a Murphy bed or sofa sleeper in the living room. Villas will also include a full kitchen, washer and dryer, and multiple bathrooms. If you're trying to stick to a budget, rates for a 2-bedroom Villa will almost always be higher than booking two connecting rooms at a Value or Moderate Resort, but I still think it's a good idea to take a look at them to see if the extra expense is something your crew thinks is worthwhile. I really enjoy staying in the 2-bedroom Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa for my adults-only trips. Being able to walk over to all the shopping, dining, and nightlife at Disney Springs is a great perk!

    There are also several lesser-known options, including various special suites at some Deluxe Resort Hotels, as well as The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. Again, the stated occupancies may not meet your needs based on the number and types of beds you need, so I recommend doing some comparison shopping. The great news is that every room type clearly lists the specific beds offered on the Walt Disney World Resort website, so you can compare and see what's right for your crew!

    I hope this information is helpful, Brad. If your research spurs any additional questions, please stop by and see us again!
