    Hi we are planning a future trip to Disney world. There are 2 adults a 4 year old and twins aged 2. I was wondering at what age it there a requirement to have a 5 sleeper or family room?

    Greetings to you, Aaron! 

    I am elated to hEAR you’re planning a future trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Nothing beats seeing the magic of Walt Disney World Resort through your little Mouseketeers’ eyes.  

    My very favorite thing about planning the most magical vacation is choosing which Walt Disney World Resort hotel my family and I will be staying at. They have so much to offer, and the very best part is even when you’re leaving the Theme Parks to come back to the resorts, you’re never leaving the magic. Each resort hotel is themed brilliantly and has a unique magic of its own. I’m excited to discuss the fabulous options for your ohana!

    The Child-Size Pull-Down bed is allowed to sleep any minor under the age of 18. My 6 year old Mouseketeer loves to snuggle into the pull-down bed because it comes with its own lights and is usually beautifully decorated with a scene from some of our favorite Disney movies! The Resort hotels that offer a 5th sleeper are Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. If you’re a worrier like I am, I like to request bed rails for my little ones when I make my reservations. My family and I recently enjoyed a stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and it felt like a relaxing vacation on it’s own. The gardens have beautiful pathways and we really enjoyed taking the Water Transportation to Disney Springs!

    Another great option for your family could be to consider the family suites offered at the Value Resorts, which are both spacious and affordable! Disney’s All-Star Music Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are so much fun! My family has stayed in the Cars Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, and to say we were wheely impressed would be an understatement. The theming is absolutely adorable; we loved spotting various scenes from our favorite Disney animated movies all over the Resort hotel. The family suites in the Cars, Lion King, and Finding Nemo sections have kitchenettes that include a refrigerator, microwave, and sink which are really helpful with little ones! Disney’s Art of Animation now offers transportation to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios by taking the Disney Skyliner. It has been a game-changer for my family! 

    There are many wonderful things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort with your little ones! Check out the Magical Experiences designed just for families with Mouseketeers! Aaron, if you have anymore questions about your magical vacation, we’re all ears at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I hope you and your family have an enchanting time planning your vacation, Aaron. We hope to see you real soon, pal!
