    We are traveling with a family of 5 (kids 10, 7, and 4). Many of the deals apply to a family of 4. Where is the best place and value to stay for a family of 5. We are currently considering Orleans.

    If you want to stay in a standard room (rather than a suite) you'll have to opt for a resort in the moderate or deluxe category.  The more economical of the two options would be the moderate category.  There are two resorts in that category that can accommodate your family of five: Port Orleans Riverside and the cabins at Fort Wilderness.  If room rate is your number one priority, you're definitely on the right track with considering a stay at Port Orleans Riverside.  A single room there would probably be less expensive than a cabin.  The cabins, though, do offer a separate bedroom as well as a full kitchen where you could prepare some of your own meals.  For some families, the ability to do so equates to a savings that would offset the higher room rate.  It all depends on what your priorities are for your trip.  I'd suggest choosing between those two resorts.  Good luck with your decision!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
