    Hi, we are planning a last minute trip, 17, 16 and 12 year our children, mom and dad and grandpa. so a total of 6 , what is the cheapest way to stay on property? Should we get one suite or two connecting rooms ? can they guarentee the rooms are connected ?

    Hiya, Tonya, and welcome to planDisney! I love your spontaneity! The Walt Disney World Resort trips we've taken on a whim are some of the most memorable, so I know you'll have a fabulous, multi-generational visit. Since it sounds like you'll be arriving soon, let's talk about where you can stay to soak up the most magic.

    My first suggestion is to search the website by clicking "Places to Stay" at the top of the screen. Enter your dates and then specify that you'll have six guests. Click the green "Find Resorts" button for a list of resort rooms that will accommodate six people. This list will include many deluxe villas and suites that are often pricey, but you might see available options for family suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort.

    I've stayed in the family suites at both of these resorts, and they offer convenience at a great price. You'll have a kitchenette and two full bathrooms. The best part is that you'll all share laughs and memories together. My tip is to look at the sleeping arrangements to see if a family suite will work for your party since this option offers three queen beds. 

    If you need more beds, I suggest booking two rooms at any value resort. If you designate three guests per room, you'll have two queen beds in each room. Disney's Pop Century Resort is my favorite because it offers Disney Skyliner transportation. It's an easy and exhilarating ride to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios, and the theming at the resort is larger than life.

    You can book two separate rooms online and request a connecting door, and my pal Matt offers instructions on how to do this in his step-by-step answer. You can also call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations, and a friendly Cast Member will check availability and book the rooms for you. 

    Remember that requesting adjoining rooms doesn't guarantee availability, but I've found that the staff will do their best to accommodate you. My final tip is to stop by the front desk as soon as you arrive, even if your room isn't ready, to ensure they know your request for adjoining rooms. I've opted to wait a little longer for my room assignment when I have a special request, so patience might be a virtue!

    If you head to EPCOT, I hope you check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. I can't wait to see Plain White Tees at the Garden Rocks Concert Series next month. And the Outdoor Kitchens have some delectable plant-based offerings this year. The Avocado Toast at BRUNCHCOT has my name written all over it!

    Tonya, I hope you secure fabulous accommodations for your family. Here's to making many magical—last-minute—memories together. Stop by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
