I think your best bet is to rent points from a DVC owner and have a 2 bedroom villa. Then the couple can have one room, the Mum and Daughter another room and you can sleep on the sofa bed.

If you are sticking to your plans to go to Pop, then logically you will need two rooms; girls in one, boys in t'other :)

I would say you will need to go for 2 rooms at Pop (unless you want to explore other options as Gill mentions above, but not everyone wants to go down that route)

Two rooms would also mean two bathrooms LOL

or maybe one of the cabin at Wildness lodge
find out if everyone is willing to share or do they want there own space
can make a big difference to a holiday

everyone had there own place and we just met up every day

that worked for us

Disney Vacation Club points = DVC points. Basically Disney's version of a timeshare. You can rent points from members who don't want to or can't use theor points for one of the DVC resorts (at WDW or elsewhere).

The Settlement Recreation Area is on Bay Lake and includes the marina, beach, Pioneer Hall and the Tri-Circle-D Ranch.

The Settlement Trading Post sells gifts, sundries, groceries, snacks and beverages. The Meadows Recreation Area is in the center of Fort Wilderness. This area includes the Bike Barn (for rentals) and the Fort Wilderness waterways and bicycle trails. Swimming, tennis, volleyball and shuffleboard are all available at the Meadows Recreation complex. The Meadows Trading Post is similar to the Settlement Trading Post, but includes a deli as well.
