    Two Questions - #1. where does a family of 5 stay on a budget? I have little ones and would love to be somewhere fun and colorful like Pop or AOA. But it seems like they all have max of 4. #2. when will the prices be up for Jan 2015?

    Hi Maggie!   I can totally understand your concern about staying in a budget, I have a family of five myself and I tend to be a rather frugal gal.   One of my favorite, and the most affordable option for your family would be to book a room at the delightful Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside.   Guest rooms located in the Alligator Bayou section of this resort have two queen beds, and a pull down trundle bed that is perfect for a child.  In my family, my three children often play a mean game of paper, rock, scissors to see who gets to sleep on it.    This Resort is filled with lots of southern  charm, and a really cool pool area inspired by the story of Tom Sawyer.  You will also find a fishing hole, and water taxi service to the Downtown Disney area.  Believe me your children will love it.

    You can book a room only reservation starting 499 days prior to your arrival.  If you would like to book a package, those rates will not be released until summer of 2014.  You can book your reservation by calling (407) 939-7675.   

    Maggie, I hope you have a blast planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.   If you think of anything else the Disney Parks Moms Panel can help you with, just let us know.

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
