    I am planning a trip for 19 of us to go to Disney, 2 families of 4, 2 families of 5 and one Grandmother :). We are trying to go sometime Spring 2011, hopefully at a value time. Is it best getting 5 different rooms or splitting two villas?

    Hi Kristen, You are in the midst of planning a "Grand Gathering" and I can't think of any better place to celebrate with loved ones than at Disney World!

    I have personally done several trips with up to 18 people. Without knowing if you are are all related and don't mind sharing close sleeping quarters, I would recommend that you get a separate room for each family. This would allow you some time away from the group to unwind. However, the Villas are wonderful because they provide a kitchen and washer/dryer which come in very handy.

    Your best bet is to call Disney's Grand Gathering Travel Planners at: 407-WDW-PLAN (407-939-7526). They can help you in exploring your Resort options. In addition, they can assist in Dining Reservations and in arranging Grand Gathering Experiences. These include: the Safari Celebration Dinner, the Good Morning Gathering and the International Dinner & IllumiNations Dessert Reception.

    They will assign a "Grand Gathering Number" to your group. This will link all of the rooms together, and will assist the Front Desk in placing you near each other at your Resort if you decide to book several different rooms.

    Hope this helps and that you enjoy your vacation!
