    Traveling 28 dec-3 Jan w/ 6 adults, 2 yo, 3 yo, 8 yo, 11 yo. 3,8 & 11 would be in one room w 2 adults and 2 yo would be in a room w 2 adults. Room 3 would just be 2 adults. Should we get 3 separate rooms or is there a family suite big enough?

    Hi Kristila,

    It sounds like you are planning a really fun vacation!  Traveling with a large group can be so much fun.  You certainly could book three resort hotels rooms.  If you go this route, be sure to check that you are booking at a resort where the rooms can accommodate five guests, since one of your parties does have five guests.

    I have another thought for you, which is to book a three-bedroom grand villa at a Disney Vacation Club resort.  Not only would you have three bedrooms, but also a communal living area as well as a full-sized kitchen and washer and dryer.  With this configuration, you could put all of the little ones to sleep, and then the adults can enjoy some relaxing time together without needing to leave the villa.

    Three bedroom villas are located at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - both Kidani Village and Jambo House, Disney's BoardWalk Villas, Disney's Old Key West Resort, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, and The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    I must warn you that you are booking at a very popular time of year, and the three-bedroom grand villas book up quickly.  I suggest that you make this reservation as soon as possible.  You can do so by calling 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639).  If you find that none of the three-bedroom grand villas are available during your stay, you can speak with the cast member on the phone about options that are possible - for instance, you might be able to stay in a two-bedroom villa for the two parties with the children, and the party which is two adults could book a deluxe studio.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Kristila.  Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
