    Planning a trip with hubby and kids (21s,18d,14d). Hubby and older 2 kids are over 6 feet tall. Kids do not want to share beds and are worried about being comfy being so tall in the beds. Where would you recommend we stay?

    Howdy, Meghan.

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you stopped by with this excellent question. Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect place to make memories to last a lifetime with those you love most. It has a way of bringing families together in ways that nowhere else can. I'm so excited to hEAR you're considering a trip "home" in the near future!

    Where you stay on your magical vacation is an oh-so important decision, especially when traveling with your entire family. Rest and relaxation are crucial at the end of a long day in the theme parks, so I understand wanting to find accommodations that meet everyone's needs. I've combed through the Disney Resorts Collection hotels and believe I've found a few options that will work for your particular situation.

    My first suggestion would be to book two separate Standard Rooms at one of the Value Resort Hotels and request they be connecting rooms. This option would provide four beds, one for you and your husband and one for each of your children, so none of your children would have to share a bed. Booking two rooms gives you double the bathrooms and space overall at an affordable price. My husband is over six feet tall as well and has no problem sleeping comfortably on the mattresses at the Value Resort Hotels. We typically stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort. We enjoy the groovy decor and mellow vibe there, as well as having quick access to the Disney Skyliner on site.

    Another option that would give everyone more than enough room to spread out is to book accommodations at a Deluxe Villa. The 2 Bedroom Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and Disney's Old Key West Resort are great options! Both have more than enough beds for everyone to have their own, a kitchen, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and more. It's truly like having a home away from home! Both Resorts boast quick access to Disney Springs, so you would be minutes away from the delicious dining, shopping, and fun things to do there. Keep in mind the Deluxe Villas cost quite a bit more, so if budget is a concern you will want to stick with booking two Standard Rooms at a Value Resort Hotel.

    You could also look into staying at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. The Wilderness Cabins sleep up to six adults and have a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, dining area, and spacious bathroom. There would be enough beds for each of your children to have their own, while you and your husband would share one. However, two of the beds are bunk beds, and one is a sleeper sofa. You may want to ask your children what their comfort level would be with those options before proceeding.

    Meghan, I hope this information helps you decide where to book your accommodations for your adventure to The Most Magical Place on Earth. I know your stay will be sprinkled with pixie dust no matter what you decide! Enjoy making core memories with your family.
