    Hi any resorts that have 2 bathrooms that can sleep up to 6 under $500 a night? Besides the all star music resort. Thanks

    Hi Lindsey! Welcome to planDisney.

    My family has had so many fun visits to Walt Disney World Resort with our extended family! My kiddos talk about those visits more than any others, and it's often the time in the room, by the pool, or just hanging out on a bench eating a Mickey-shaped treat that are their most favorite memories. I'm so happy to hEAR that you're planning a visit with a larger group and it's a pleasure to help with your planning.

    I would recommend looking at the Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. These rooms sleep up to 6 adults, have 2 bathrooms, and have a kitchenette with a mini-fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. There is a small bedroom with a bed, a pull-down table bed, and a sleeper sofa. If you can be flexible with your dates and aren't set on a particular theme (there are Cars, Finding Nemo, and Lion King suites), you might be able to reserve one in your price range. If you have little ones in your party, the pools and theming across the whole resort are so much fun!

    Otherwise, I encourage you to think about two alternatives, both of which have worked well for my family. First, consider getting two standard rooms at a value or moderate resort hotel and asking for adjacent or close-by rooms. There is no guarantee that the room assigners can place you side-by-side, but they will try. My family did this at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort - we were right next door to my parents, and my Mouseketeers loved knocking on Grandma and Grandpa's door for bedtime stories and morning snuggles. 

    Another option is to consider expanding your budget a little and looking at a 2-bedroom villa at a Deluxe Villa Resort. We've done this several times, and what's great is that these rooms have full kitchens, a dining area, and a living room space with a couch and TV. It's so nice with larger groups to be able to retire to your own private space, and with smaller kiddos, it means space for naps or downtime. Plus, you can save money by cooking meals in the room and make ice in your freezer for a cooler. Sometimes the higher cost of the room can offset dining costs when you use this strategy. My family loves Disney's Old Key West Resort, which has spacious rooms, lower costs, and a beautiful south Florida theming. 

    I hope this helps, Lindsey! You can play with availability using the Disney Resorts Collection "Places to Stay" webpage, or call the Disney Reservations Center at (407) 939-1936 and speak to a Cast Member.

Happy planning, and we will see ya real soon!

    Wishing you much magic,
