Which resort has the largest rooms?
 
We were thinking that we might want a little more room this time. We usually stay at AKL in a regular room. We have 2 kids.

I don't know the actual square footage of room sizes, but out of the deluxes, WL and AKL feel the smallest to us. The Epcot resorts feel a little bigger. The monorail resorts feel the largest to us. Personally, we felt like we had a room once at Poly that was absolutely huge by disney standards. I think the room sizes vary by building at Poly.

For standard rooms the CR and Poly have the largest rooms, followed by GF, then YC, BC, BW, next down would be WL & AKL. Then the Moderates, smallest are the values.

Yes, of the deluxe Poly & CR have the largest rooms.

Just for comparison's sake, the typical Poly guest room is 404-ish square feet. CR's rooms are just a bit larger, something like 437 sq feet.

AKL's standard rooms are 344 sq ft.

The Tahiti building rooms are larger than some of the older Poly buildings. Tahiti also has wider hallways and 2 sinks in the bathroom area. Love that Tahiti building!! :thumbsup2

Yes I can remember having to switch rooms at Poly once and though I can't remember the buildings (we switched buildings 2x!), I do clearly remember thinking WOW when we walked in one of the rooms. It just seemed enormous.

Close. CR rooms range from 422 to 436 sq ft. At the Poly the smaller rooms in the older buildings are 415 while in the newer buildings (Tokelau, Tahiti, Rapa Nui) the rooms are 476 sq ft. The resorts were built with the same construction method by the same manufacturer. The rooms were pre-fabed as a rectangular units and slid into the building frame.

Are 5 allowed in these rooms? 2 adults, 3 young kids - 5-9.

Yes, 5 are allowed in all deluxe resort's rooms except AKL and WL.

AKL & WL are the only deluxe resorts that only allow 4 & a child under3 in a room but all the other deluxe sleep 5. As for the mods only POR can sleep 5 in bayou. Don't quote me on the values, we never looked into them because they are def not for me.

tinkermommyof3 11-09-2012 02:39 PM

CR and Poly were the biggest. We have stayed at CR, Poly, BWI, GF and POR.

The largest will be the Disney Vacation Club rooms, followed by the Poly, Contemporary, and GF.

I disagree, this discussion is about standard size rooms. The "standard" size room for DVC would be the studio, they are no larger than the Poly CR or GF regular rooms (except they have a kitchenette).
