    Hi! I am planning a vacation with my 16 and 17 years old sons next summer. What is the best and most cost effective option as far as sleeping? Sharing beds is not an option, and we are going on one income. Thanks!

    Hello there, Leanne! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Blog! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and submit your Walt Disney World Resort question! 

    Traveling with teens and older children can certainly present their own challenges! Fortunately, you and your family have quite a few options as far as lodging at Walt Disney World Resort!

    There are actually certain Disney Resort hotels, such as Disney's Art of Animation Resort, that offer special Family Suites that are perfect for situations such as your own! Family Suites come with one queen-size bed, one double-size table bed, and one double-size sleeper sofa bed. All of the family suites can fit up to six adults and may be the perfect solution for families that require a bit more room!

    While many Disney Resort hotels are moving away from rollaway beds, there are still certain locations that Guests can request these items. Those Disney Resort hotels include Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Disney's Boardwalk Inn, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Yacht Club Resort. In other Disney Resort hotels that do not offer rollaway beds, Guests may be able to request an air mattress. These Disney Resort hotels include Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Beach Club Villas, Disney's Boardwalk Villas, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, and Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort. Keep in mind, though, these items are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are never guaranteed. 

    Hopefully, this information has given you a few options for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort!
