View Full Version : Family of 5 in single room?

04-05-2007, 07:02 PM
Hello all - excited to be planning our first Disney trip since the new arrival (now 3). We are a family of 5 with DS(17), DD(10) and the newbie (3). Are there resorts that have roooms that will accommodate the 5 of us in one room?

Yes there is a resort for families of 5 it is the port orleans riverside, Riverside has a trundle bed (shorter and narrower than a standard twin bed) that can accomodate a 5th small person

Let's see, you have a choice of:

1. A family suite at the All-Stars

2. Two rooms (with a connecting door between) at any value or moderate resort.

3. A room with a trundlebed in the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside

4. A cabin at Fort Wilderness

5. A standard room at GF, CR, Poly, YC, BC, or BWV

6. A deluxe room at WL or AKL

7. A two-bedroom villa at VWL, BCV, BWV, SSR or OKW.

I think that's all of the options....

The Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Contemporary will all accommodate 5. There are 2 Queen beds and a Daybed in each room.

That's comprehensive! Thanks all... I've always wanted to stay at the AKL. We'll work on that one first.

Is the deluxe room there two Queens and a pull-out or daybed?

We have stayed 5 every year.. and have stayed at Beach Club (daybed), YC (daybed), this year it's CSR and next year (2008) probably POR (pull out trundle).
