Booked in 1 room, sleeping in another.....

Will this be a huge problem?

We booked a deluxe oceanview verandah room a few months ago for myself, my husband, and our 2 young sons. Our teenage daughter, who didn't think she'd be able to come, was able to work it out now. Problem is, there are no more 5 person rooms available for our cruise and we've past our PIF date. We're traveling with some friends who booked the same room type as us, but only have 1 child. We're thinking of booking her in their room but letting her stay with us (our 2 boys are little and actually often end up sleeping together at home in a twin bed, so it will be no problem for them to bunk together and give her the upper bunk).

Will Disney have a huge problem with this? Our dining and everything is together, and none of us spend much time in the room anyway, so it will pretty much just be for sleeping purposes. She *could*, I guess, sleep in the other room with them, but she's never met these friends before (DH's high school best friend and family) so I don't think either she or the couple would be very comfortable with that.

(and please don't flame me too hard for trying to find a work-around! )

Also, is there a way to either link her KTTW card to our account, or to have her set up as a seperate, cash account from theirs? I don't want any of her charges going on their account if possible.

thanks again! We're really hoping we can find a way for our whole family to enjoy this vacation together!

Last summer, we did something similar. My neice was booked with me, but ended up sleeping in her parents room (something about a bunk bed and the top bunk... ). It wasn't an issue. When we checked in, my brother provided a card to cover any charges that may have ended up on her card. You can also go to Guest Services and have them transfer any charges on her room to yours.

Have fun!!
Smiles! Michelle

Thanks! I was really hoping it wouldn't be too much of a problem. If we were concierge, I could see the issue, but was hoping it would be ok for our room category!

That's a good idea, Barbara! No way my 7 or 4 year olds will have charging privileges!

The charging part is no problem at all. EACH KTTW card can be tied to a different pay source. All you need to do is to attach YOUR credit card to HER KTTW card. Easy, no problems.

As to sleeping where she is not booked--again, no problem if you can put the two little ones together in one bed. Otherwise, there won't be the correct number of beds in the room.

If it were me...

I'm assuming that your young sons will not have charging privileges to your account. (Our two 12yo's just recently have been able to charge to accounts when traveling and we're thinking of taking it back after some issues -- 16yo has been ok.) If at least one won't, have the booking changed to have one of your sons booked to your friend's cabin and your daughter booked to yours. Then you don't have to worry about covering or transferring charges.

Then all sleep in the same cabin. How will they be able to tell?
