    With two teens, a boy and a girl, our family has outgrown the standard room at Disney World. We love the Epcot resorts, but we're open to other locations as well. Is there anything with at least 3 sleeping surfaces and 2 bathrooms you'd suggest we try?

    Hi Gina,

    There are a number of options for families in your position:

    - Getting two connecting rooms. This configuration is available at all the Disney resort hotels. Getting two standard rooms together will get you four sleep surfaces and two bathrooms, at a minimum. Two rooms at a value resort may be the least expensive option. Also look for unique configurations. Last Christmas, my family stayed in connecting rooms at the Wilderness Lodge which had a room with a king sized bed connected to a room with a queen bed plus bunk beds. All three of my kids had their own sleep surface!

    - A family suite. These are available at the All Star Music and Art of Animation resorts. These all have two rooms and two bathrooms. The ASM rooms have four sleep surfaces. Art of Animation family suites have three.

    - A villa style room. These are available at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boardwalk, Beach Club, Contemporary (Bay Lake Tower), Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Saratoga Springs, and Wilderness Lodge resorts. The two-bedroom villas are HUGE, all with at least four sleep surfaces and two bathrooms. There are some one-bedroom villas with two bathrooms at Bay Lake Tower and the Kidani section of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. All one and two bedroom villas have a full kitchen.

    Additionally, the Fort Wilderness cabins are moderately priced and have four sleep surfaces, but only one bathroom.

    My family's all time favorite accommodations are the two-bedroom villas at the Beach Club, but when we're not in splurge mode, the family suites at Art of Animation work just fine.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
