    Any rooms available for 4 adults & 2 children? Wondering if it would be more economical than two separate rooms? Can you get adjoining rooms? When do cruise calendars for December 2025 come out? Is there a chart for using DVC points?

    Hi there, Debra! It's lovely to meet a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. Thanks so much for visiting planDisney--I'm happy to help with your vacation planning questions. 

    I see that your wheels are turning, Debra, and you're looking at all the possible ways to use your DVC Vacation Points for some Disney adventures. I fully support this! There is so much flexibility in how you use your Membership, and our family loves exploring new destinations around the world. You have a few different questions here, so let me go through them one at a time. If you need some more in-depth information about anything, just reach out to me directly!

    There are several different lodging options for a party of your size--let's look at how you could accommodate your group at a Disney Vacation Club resort. 
    • Deluxe Studios at DVC resorts sleep either 4 or 5 adults, plus 1 infant (defined as a child under the age of 3). You could book two Studios for your party of 6, which also allows for some privacy if your group includes different families.
    • 1-Bedroom Villas generally sleep 5 adults plus 1 infant. You'll also enjoy a living space to relax together and a fully equipped kitchen. We love being able to prepare some meals during our vacation--it makes it feel more homey!
    • A 2-Bedroom Villa sleeps up to 9 Guests (plus 1 infant), which would give your group plenty of room. The larger villas also include a spacious kitchen and a comfy living area. 
    Beyond the DVC resorts, I would check out the Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort and Disney's All-Star Music Resort. They sleep up to 6 adults and have two bathrooms, which is the best when everyone is trying to get ready for an early morning at the same time! These Walt Disney World Resort properties can be booked by DVC Members as part of the Disney Collection--meaning you can use your points for a stay at these properties. Contact Member Services to convert your Vacation Points to Reservation Points, and you'll be on your way! Remember that exchanges carry a nonrefundable, one-time fee (currently $95, subject to change).

    Regardless of where you stay, you can always request adjoining rooms by contacting Member Services and asking them to add a note to your reservation. These requests can't be guaranteed, but rest assured that they will do their best to make some vacation magic for you whenever they can!

    As for Disney Cruise Line calendars for mid-2025 and beyond, I, too, am still waiting for those. My youngest is dreaming big for a milestone birthday next year and she's been asking regularly!  I recommend keeping an eye on the DCL website and the Disney Parks Blog for announcements regarding those dates. In the meantime, the Points Charts for currently available DCL sailings will give you an idea of how many points are needed for the itinerary you're hoping for!

    Debra, thanks again for stopping by planDisney! Please don't hesitate to reach out again if we can help with any other tips and tricks to make your next Disney Vacation Club adventure a little more magical.
