    Hi. I am looking for recommendations for the best resort rooms for my family of 5. Myself, husband, 20 yo daughter, 17 yo daughter and 11 yo son. I would prefer 2 bathrooms, but cost is definitely a factor. I'm not opposed to two rooms. Thanks!

    Hi, Rebecca!

    Thanks so much for sending your question to us at Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's a great one!

    I travel often to Walt Disney World with teens in tow, so I understand how having access to two bathrooms for your party of 5 would be ideal. Not to worry, though...you've got lots of options!

    Disney's All-Star Music Resort could be an excellent choice for your family. As a Value Resort, you'll get the best bang for your buck at this musically-themed location. If available, you could request adjoining rooms, which would give you those two bathrooms you mentioned. I stay in a Standard Room here each year when traveling as a chaperone for my high school students, and I can say that a standard location is an easy walk to all that you'll need to make your stay magical. Although they do not feature two bathrooms, room options at Disney's All-Star Music Resort also include Family Suites, which would give you a queen bed in a separate sleeping area, and both a double-size sleeper sofa and a twin-size sleeper ottoman in the living area. That space also includes a kitchenette, which is a great feature to have when you'd like to heat up some late night or early morning snacks in your room. Adjacent resorts Disney's All-Star Sports Resort and Disney's All-Star Movies Resorts are excellent choices, too!

    Another fantastic option that would give your family some extra space and two bathrooms is Disney's Art of Animation Resort. Check out the Family Suites available at this resort, and you'll quickly see how magical they are! All of these Family Suites feature TWO full bathrooms, a separate sleeping area, a double-size sleeper sofa, a double-size table bed and a kitchenette. Having the extra space and kitchenette amenities as well as the two bathrooms could be just the right fit for you. 

    Finally, you may want to check out a favorite of mine, The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. We love this option, as it is like nothing else you'll find at Walt Disney World, and it is a joy to come "home" to these cabins at the end of each fun-filled day. The sleeping area here includes a queen bed plus a bunk bed; the living area includes a double-size sleeper sofa. While there is only one bathroom, there is a full kitchen, which might fit your family's needs nicely. 

    Other options are available, of course, but if you are looking for maximum magic for your Disney Dollar--while traveling with teens--I would go with any one of these great options. 

    Send more questions as you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Rebecca. We really love to help!
