Family of 6 Options

Family of 6: 2 parents with kids 6, 4, 3, and 15 months considering Disney. I'm trying to help them plan. What is their best plan? Art of Animation?

I know ASMu has suites that can sleep 5 but could they do use a Pack N Play for the little one? Fort Wilderness?

I'm thinking any of the Deluxes would be out of their price range. Looking to do Disney under $5000 in early December.

Any other options that I'm missing?

Since they have a baby, for reservation purposes they'd be considered 5 + 1, with the baby expected to sleep in a pack and play.

They could stay at ASMu family suites, AoA family suites, POR (AB room- but I think this would be way too crowded with a pack and play), Ft. Wilderness cabins, any of the Deluxe resorts other than WL or AKL, and a lot of the DVC villas.

If they don't want to stay value or mod, then perhaps they could look into renting points and staying DVC. I've never done it, but I keep seeing people say how much money they saved by doing things this way.

Or they could look at a suite or condo offsite.

I would go with an All Star Family Suite. The way they are laid out, the kitchen area would be a perfect spot to put the pack and play. And that would place it right next to the bedroom where I'm guessing the adults would sleep. It is a little off of the living room area where the fold outs are.

I've never stayed at AoA but what bothers me is that they have the little kitchen area right in the living/sleeping area. Right next to one of the fold outs. That seems like an awkward set up.
