    We would like to stay at a value resort in a standard room. We have 2 adults and 3 children, ages 9, 6&4. When I look for availabilty online it says we exceed max number of people for the room. Is there anyway we can get a room w/out paying $200 or mor

    Hello Karin, and welcome to the Moms Panel.  I can certainly relate to your question, as my family has experienced this same frustration when it comes to booking a room for 5.  Walt Disney World has strict occupancy rules, which mean you will either have to book 2 connecting rooms at a value resort, such as All Star Movies, or a room at Disney's Port Orleans Riverside, which have 2 queen beds and a bunk-sized pull down bed.  Both of these options would cost around the same amount and would probably be right around $200 per night.  My recommendation to you would be to visit favourite website of mine, which always has an up-to-date, detailed list of all the possible room-only discounts available at Walt Disney World.  AAA, Military, special offers, etc. are all detailed here, and it's definitely worth checking out-hopefully you can find an offer that includes the dates you are visiting, making your accommodations much more affordable.  I've always found that a little bit of leg-work can save my family a lot of money!

    Good luck with your planning, and I'll send some extra Pixie-dust your way in hopes of a discounted room rate!  Have a magical day!
