    We are a party of 5: 3-adults and 2-kids. When we try to book a room, it says that our party exceeds maximum room occupancy of 4. It will be quite expensive to book another room just for that extra person. Can we all use one room?

    Hi Ingrid,

    There are different room sizes and types, with options to suit a variety of party sizes and budgets. Some rooms have a capacity of four guests, due to fire regulations, and the number of beds available. Frankly, most of those rooms are fairly small and a group of five would be uncomfortable there. If your group exceeds the stated room capacity, you will not be able to stay there. The only exception to this would be if one of the guests is a child under the age of three sleeping in a Pack n' Play crib. 

    Here are some of your other options:
    - As you mentioned, you could get two rooms. There are connecting rooms available at all Disney hotels. This would allow you have more living space, more beds, and two bathrooms. 
    - There are some rooms at the Port Orleans Riverside resort which have two queen-sized beds and a pull-down Murphy bed suitable for a child. These allow up to five guests. 
    - Many of the rooms at the Deluxe level resorts have two queen-sized beds plus a twin-sized daybed. These allow up to five guests. 
    - The cabins at Fort Wilderness have a full-sized Murphy bed, a full-sized regular bed, and twin-sized bunk beds, and a full kitchen. These sleep up to six guests. 
    - There are family suites at the All Star Music and Art of Animation resorts. They have kitchenettes and two bathrooms. They have a queen-sized bed, a full-sized Murphy bed, and a full-sized pull-out couch. These sleep up to six guests. 

    I have stayed in almost all of these room types with my family of five. I love the family suites because we like having two bathrooms. The Port Orleans Riverside rooms are perhaps the most budget-friendly option. And the Deluxe resorts all have wonderful amenities. 

    I encourage you to play around in the "Places to Stay" tab on DisneyWorld.com. You can see photos of the resorts and get pricing for various dates.
