    Can more than 4 people stay in a room at a valure resort? 4 adults and 1 child (17) are going and would like to just stay in one standard room. Would they let us do that? It would save us a ton of money and our budget it really tight. Thanks!!

    Hi, Lindsey!   Unfortunately, the maximum is 4 people in a Value Resort Room.   At about 260 square feet and only one bathroom and one sink, 5 in one room would be really tight, even if were permitted.   You will need 2 rooms, and you can request connecting rooms so you can still all be together (requests are noted but cannot be guaranteed.)

    To save some money, try booking with a Special Offer or ask if a AAA rate is available.   These vary throughout the year.   Also try to go during Value Season when the rates are considerably lower (mid September, early January.)

    When purchasing tickets, skip expensive add-ons like park hoppers and water parks.  While these extras are nice, you can still have a great vacation without them and save money.    

    Plan ahead!  Pack refillable water bottles, rain ponchos, sunscreen, and a tote bag.    Bring your bag to the parks each day.  Save by getting free cups of ice water at counter service to refill your water bottles and even bring along some snacks.    Its amazing how all the little things can really add up!

    Your other option for 5 guests is to stay at Port Orleans Riverside.  This is a moderate resort, but has some rooms with a trundle allowing that 5th guest.  (The trundle is not super comfortable, but it is just an option for you!)    Hope this all works out for you and wishing you a magical vacation!
