Minivan vs SUV

We are planning a trip in May/June 2013. It will be myself, DH, DD 15, DDBFF 14, DS 13, and DN 12.
We know that we are going to have to rent a vehicle. We keep reviewing prices to try to find the best deal, but everything is so confusing.
I have found a minivan online for 11 days for under 700.00. All of the SUVs such as a Tahoe or a Suburban are well over 1000.00.
How much room difference is there between a minivan and a Suburban? The last time we rented a vehicle to go was a Suburban with 5 people. Now we will have 6 and less room. I know that I can cut down on the items that we will take since we rented the Suburban last time, but do you think that we will have enough room for everything in a minivan for all six of us?
I really want to save the money as DH and I are paying for the entire cost of the rental with most of the extra costs at WDW as well.
I know that I could get a luggage thing for the top of a van, but if I have to do that, I might as well just rent the bigger vehicle.
Please let me know your thoughts. We don't rent vehicles very often, in fact, this will only be our second time. I don't know whether to wait to rent closer to time to get a better deal or if I take a chance of them not having a vehicle that I need.
Thanks for any advice that you can share!
