    We are wanting to plan a trip to celebrate our daughters graduations in Spring 2023. There will be approximately 8 adults and 1 infant in our group. We would like to either stay together or be as close to each other as possible.

    Welcome to planDisney, Becky!

    I'm so glad you stopped by - you're already making great choices by starting your planning early. Luckily, there is an (almost) endless sea of options for you and your crew to stay together or nearby!

    Personally, I think everyone sharing the same space makes a Walt Disney World vacation extra magical! If that's the direction you'd like to go, you'll want to check out Disney Resorts Collection Deluxe Villas. Most 2-Bedroom Villas sleep at least eight adults and often come with convenient amenities including full kitchens, a washer and dryer, and even multiple bathrooms. If you need a bit more space, there are 3-Bedroom Grand Villas available, and let me tell you, they are indeed GRAND!

    Disney's Riviera Resort is my absolute favorite option when I need a Villa with more space. I love the immersive European theming, amazing dining options, and it's super convenient to hop on the Disney Skyliner to Disney's Hollywood Studios or EPCOT! Another unique option you should check out are the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. They can accommodate up to nine adults and are nestled in a beautiful secluded setting. Plus, you really are up off the ground - how cool!

    Another great option is to request two connecting rooms at almost any other Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Most standard Guest Rooms sleep four or five adults, so two connecting rooms would keep everyone close by, and might be a bit more budget-friendly than a Villa. If for some reason you want to be close but not TOO close, I've often had success requesting rooms that are near each other, but not connecting. Simply speak to a Cast Member at the Front desk of your Resort hotel prior to check-in and they will do their best to accommodate your request. To be honest, sometimes we love to have rooms in different parts of our Resort - different views or theming can be a pleasant silver lining if your request for nearby rooms can't be fulfilled.

    When you are searching for accommodations online you will enter the number of adults and children, and will be asked to include the age of all children at the time of your trip. Infants are not counted as a traditional Guest for room capacity limits, so you'll just want to focus on the adults when looking at options. As a tall person, I always keep in mind that Disney does count some smaller beds that I don't fit in as being able to accommodate adults. The number and types of beds are listed when you're looking at rooms, so be sure they meet your unique crew's needs!

    Please let me know if any other questions pop up as you continue planning!
