Where would you stay - family of 10?

We will be going to Disney World next winter and I'm wondering where you would stay if you were a family of 10? I'm interested in all the options for us? Thank you

The only lodging that would hold a family of ten would be a DVC grand villa (three bedroom villa). But they are very limited, very expensive if you pay cash and most times are booked up by DVC members (DVC is Disney's version of a timeshare).

Your best bet would be offsite. Or perhaps offsite at Bonnet Creek. I think Bonnet Creek has four bedroom homes.

Two connecting deluxe rooms would also work. I have found a huge room at the Poly in the Tokelau (sp) building and we had ten between two connecting rooms and it worked out well. We had a discount and it came out to about $300 per night per room with tax. So not so bad spit between three families. I dont think the values will let you book 3 rooms without a parent in each room. You may also be able to do 2 family suites at Art of Animation but I think the Poly option may be cheaper. Good luck and happy planning.

They are in her signature block. Only one infant, so they are a family of nine plus one under the age of three.

THANK YOU for pointing that out--I was not very observant.

I will echo what PPers have said, if money is not object 2 rooms @ monorail resort. Given the various ages, it would be a great benefit to stay on property if the teens wanted to spend some time (just) riding thrill rides--with your permission of course.

Others will be able to answer what I cannot--could 2 family suites at a value work?

I am thinking it is her family in her siggy

That is why I suggested Poly with the littles in a stroller most likely and monorail access and close proximity to MK.

The only problem with connecting room is they are not guaranteed. If they didn't get connecting rooms, mom and dad would be split up for the entire vacation because the oldest kiddo isn't 18.

That must have been a great discount or a few years back, My standard view Polynesian room with 30% discount in June is $420 a night. In contrast, I booked two rooms at AKL with the einter discount for $189 a night this past January. Another option might be a few rooms at the Swan/Dolphin. They can be found for around $200 or so with AAA sometimes and give discounts to teachers and nurses.

We have a large family group going as well and just booked at 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom house with it's own splash pool at Paradise Palms resort. It's 10 minutes from Disney, but you will need a rental car. We've never stayed here, but the resort looks nice, it's new and I've heard great things about it. It also has a resort movie theater, game room, large resort pool and club house.

Have fun no matter where you decide

2 adjoining rooms at the beach club would be cheaper than the poly...can't beat the pool...and the convenience to Epcot and HS.

They have a couple of younger children that could make Stormalong Bay a real nightmare.
