Help!!! 2 rooms, Family Suite? We have 4

Ok, Going to WDW with Me, my 14year old, 6 year old and their Nana. How do I book a room? What would be best? No one wants to sleep in a queen together. Maybe me and my 6 year old if the deal is great. However, I can't put Nana in a sofa. What are our options. Is it cheaper to get connecting rooms? Would love your thoughts. I haven't been since 2003. We been cruising.

You could book preferred at POR and stay in the AB section. They have two queens and a murphy bed set-up. However, the storage is limited.

You could also book a regular room at POR or POFQ and get two queen beds and bring an air mattress. There is plenty of storage for 4 people (I have done 4 adults in the mansions at POR). The air mattress can be placed agains the wall during the day when not in use.

The set-up would be similar at CSR. CBR still has double beds, so that would not be the most ideal choice, but it would work with the air mattress.

The threads for CSR, POR, and POFQ are very well maintained and have a ton of pictures; I would check them all three out and see what theming suits you best.

for more money than POR - you can get two rooms at a value resort - then everyone gets a bed with connecting rooms.

think all stars sports or music is cheaper than movie or pop.

i would go with this option also, i don't like sharing beds.
but can connecting rooms actually be guaranteed?

I would get two connecting (request but not a guarantee) or two adjoining rooms at the value resorts.

I second the cabins at FW. There's a double in the bedroom and bunks then a double murphy bed in the living room. 4 beds. Nice to have the full kitchen and extra space also.

Thanks everyone. Checked into bed at POR and it too small for an adult or my son. Too bad I really like that resort. Wondering if Animator's bed is the same.

My 12 year old slept on the Innova table bed. It's a full size bed but it's not as long. I think your 14 yr old would be fine. My son said it was very comfortable. My son is about 5' tall.
