AoA Question

My family is planning on visiting WDW next summer and we would love to stay in a suite at AoA. There will be 5 adults 1 child age seven and an infant age 1-1/2. I know that it says that a suite sleeps 6, but I read somewhere that it can be 6 plus an infant. Is that correct? I believe as long as our grandson is under 3 he is still considered an infant. We would really like to start planning, but are trying to decide if we will actually be able to stay there.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

you can stay there - but that is a lot of adults for something designed for kids.

would go with fw cabins or 2-bedroom villa

or 2 rooms at a value first.

I haven't stayed at AoA but have stayed at a family suite at ASMu & at the cabins. I would not recommend a cabin. The suites have 2 bathrooms, easy access to a food court and much better bus service.

Thanks for the info. We really wanted to try the suites for our then to be 7 year old grandson. He would love the theming. We are still in the discussion process of where to stay. We have usually done two value rooms, but thought we would try something different.

I'd go with 2 rooms at a mod or deluxe for bigger beds personally

the AoA suites only offer 3 sleeping areas (a queen bedroom, table/convertible bed, and a full (I believe) sleeper sofa) I'd never put 5 adults and 2 little ones in there

We will be there next week! But we are 2 adults and 11 year old girls. We are in the Cars suite and love that there are two bathrooms. I am a little bummed about the sofa sleeper as the other "bedroom". We are doing a split stay and the Hard Rock is similar price ( at Universal) but has two bedrooms. After a long day in the park, I'm glad I will not be on the sofa bed! Lol!

The table bed seemed like it should be more comfortable than the sofa bed as there was no bar in the middle like sofa sleepers always have. The table bed was a simple single mattress on a board that pulled out....the bathrooms did have a good amount of room for the four in my group but 6 would have been rough...

Oh, and there is very little storage- no closets- so you would have to live out of suite cases

We stayed 4 adults and 2 littles, if everyone is committed it could work.
I would put your son, his wife and 2 kids in the bedroom, a pnp for the baby and possibly a twin air mattress you could bring for the older child.

In theivingroom the sofa bed for you and your husband and the table bed for your daughter.

When we went my inlaws took the sofa and found it comfortable they are in their 60s and had no complaints. I took the bedroom with both kids as I was nursing and needed privacy and my husband ended up sleeping on the table bed because we are used to a king and the queen with a kid just wasn't working!
