    My school is interested in a field trip to Epcot, but want to know if there are any overnight options and if so what would they be. We will have approximately 50 8th graders pus teachers and parent chaperones.

    Hi there, Christy! Welcome to planDisney!

    What a magical question you've brought to us today! I remember attending field trips in middle school, but none of my local bus rides compared to a trip to EPCOT and an overnight stay at the Walt Disney World Resort! This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your students filled with core memories!

    With a group that large, you will want some help booking your stay. I'm going to point you in the right direction to get the planning process started, but also recommend that you book your trip as far in advance as possible. Accommodating such a large group at any Disney Resort Hotel will certainly take quite a bit of forethought!

    If you'd like to stay on Walt Disney World Resort property, your best "overnight option" will be booking a large block of rooms at a Disney Resort Hotel. To find the best accommodation for you, along with pricing and availability, I'd suggest reaching out to Group Reservations (10 Rooms or More) once you're ready to get your trip on the books. They will be able to best direct you, as well as reserve the rooms for your group. An important note- an adult will be required to stay in each room with the students. Depending on the specific room you choose, there could be anywhere from four to 12 Guests in each room, though you're most likely looking at closer to four to six Guests per room.

    As you navigate the Walt Disney World Resort with so many smiling faces, it will prove to be a little difficult to keep everyone together. If you'd like to have "Group Events," where your entire class of students and all chaperones are in one place, Disney Meetings & Events is the place for you to call! From catered meals to meeting rooms and more, the Cast Members on this team will be able to find the right fit for all your educational and recreational needs!

    What a magic carpet ride this is shaping up to be for the eighth-grade students at your school! I applaud your efforts and am Pascal-green with envy about the incredible journey they are all about to embark upon!
