    We are starting to plan our next trip to WDW. We have 4 children ages 7,5,2, and an infant. What are our options for resorts? Does Disney allow a family of our size to stay in one room? We were hoping to stay at one of the monorail resorts. Thank you!

    Hi, Kim!  I have all kinds of good news for you!  Children who are aged two or younger are not included in the count towards your room maximum, so you have two little ones that won't count towards the room occupancy.  Additionally, many of the rooms at the monorail resorts have sleeping for up to five guests, so even for the next two years at least, you'll be able to stay at most of the deluxe resort options without a problem.  

    You'll find many of the deluxe rooms have a daybed, that is perfect for either the five or seven year old.  You can also request guard rails for the bed, so if your two year old is too big for the pack and play that is usually offered as a sleeping option for babies, you should request the guard rails and the two year old can share a bed with one of the bigger kids.  

    This may not be what you're looking for, but I also want to toss out there that Bay Lake Tower, which is a Disney Vacation Club resort, also has access to the monorail through the Contemporary Resort.  You'll find rooms there that include full kitchens and a washer and dryer.  It's the ultimate home away from home type of accommodation that allows you to spread out with a bigger family.

    Have a magical time on your upcoming vacation!
