View Full Version : Need help trying to book for 10
11-02-2007, 07:58 AM
We are trying to figure out how to accomodate our group of 10..
5 adults and 5 kids (one is under 3).
We were thinking a 2 BR villa with one kid on an air mattress...
I know this is not TECHNICALLY permitted, but I was reading posts that
say people often do this and Disney is not counting heads.
Here's the main question....is there a way to still book a dining plan if
we are trying to keep the cost for the trip as low as possible as my mom is
giving us this trip to celebrate HER 70th b-day!!

The Grand Villas at OKW are very spacious and more than enough room with 4 bathrooms! If you have the points and are going during the value season you might enjoy all that room! I've stayed in one last year and will be in one again this coming December.

10 people in a two bedroom? :eek: No way. I have 6 in each 2 bedroom villa for our family gathering of 12 next month. That's plenty.
I have 7 of us in a 2 bedroom next March and I'm hoping that's not two crowded.
I'd never consider 10 in a 2 bedroom. You'll literally be stepping all over each other.

I believe 9 people plus one under age 3 would be permitted in a 2br (standard or higher) at AKV- experts will chime and confirm or dismiss.

What is your mom's home resort? OKW and BWV standard view rooms would be the lowest number of points. 10 is not acceptable in a 2 bedroom and you could not book the dining plan since what you are asking to do is not allowed. If your mom has OKW as home resort, book a GV at 11 months. If she owns elsewhere, book either a GV or 2 bedroom and a studio at OKW at 7 months (you will probably need to waitlist some nights for the GV); or book a standard view 2 bedroom and studio at BWV (at 11 months if she owns there, 7 months if she doesn't own there--and be prepared to waitlist for some of the days at 7 months). Good luck!
eta: If the new Kidani Village at AKV is open during your trip, a 2 bedroom MIGHT work, but it will still be so crowded that I don't think this is a good option.

I stayed in a 2-BR at BWV with 6 adults and 2 kids and I have to say that it was very ... um ... cozy. We had 2 adults in the master bedroom, 2 adults and 2 kids in the 2nd bedroom and 2 adults (college kids) on the couch.
A 2BR at AKV will accommodate you as it sleeps 9 plus a child under 3 but you will be "cozy". That is the only way you can book a 2BR and have the DDP for all 9 guests over the age of 3. If you can't book that, I would go for a 2BR plus a studio and give the people in the studio a key to the 2BR. That way they can hang in the 2BR, make meals there and use the laundry.

We stayed in a 2BR with five adults and three kids--and one was an infant--and there's no way I'd want to stuff more than that into a 2BR.
I'd either get a GV or book a studio and a 2BR.
I don't believe you can book the dining plan for more than the "legal" occupancy for your group.
In all honesty I might just rent the points and rent a four or five bedroom home off property, even with a couple of rental cars it will probably still be cheaper.

Occupancy for a two bedroom unit is 8 plus one child under age 3.
Please limit any occupancy discussion to the following Thread (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=901569). Thank you.
