    I am trying to help someone book a trip to Disney. Everyone in the party is staying at PoP. She has 2 adults and 3 small children under 9. Can she pay extra for the 3rd child to stay in the room, that way she does not have to get an extra room?

    Hello Nichole!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney’s Pop Century Resort is a great choice for families. Now that the new Disney Skyliner is open, this resort is even more popular! I was able to ride the Skyliner for the first time last weekend and I enjoyed even more than I thought I would. It is definitely is a plus for those resorts with a Disney Skyliner stop!

    Disney’s Pop Century Resort can sleep up to 4 plus a child under the age of 3 in a pack-n-play. You mention three children under 9. If one of them is 2 or under, then yes, all of them may stay in one room. If all of the children are ages 3 and over than a single room at Disney’s Pop Century Resort will not work.

    The first option is to request two connecting rooms. While connecting rooms are never a guarantee, if you list one adult with kids in one room, and the other adult with another child in the second room, you are likely to get your request. Cast Members make these situations with larger families the priority for connecting rooms.

    Another option would be to consider a Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. These Family Suites sleep up to 6, offer a separate sleeping area, two bathrooms, and a kitchenette. They are perfect for larger families!

    Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are actually connected via a walking bridge, so while that family would be at a different resort, it is still pretty close and they would all be able to meet for breakfast at one of the food courts, meet up at the same bus stop, or take the Disney Skyliner together.

    If the rest of the group wouldn't mind switching resorts, Disney's All Star Music Resort offers both standard rooms and Family Suites! Moving to this resort would offer an option for everyone at the same location.

    I hope this helps as you assist your friends, Nichole. We all need friends like you! Please let us know if we can help with any additional questions.
