Which resorts for 5 have a balcony/patio?

Which resorts that would fit 5 have a balcony or patio? I'm trying to piece it together from the WDW site but the site keeps crashing.

Thanks!

Deluxe resorts including all DVC resorts (except for one studio at VWL), Fort Wilderness Cabins. But not POR or the family suites.

The Polynesian and GF definitely does. I also believe POR, but not positive.

Every room at the Yacht Club has a balcony! Rooms with 2 queens and a day bed sleep 5 comfortably.

There are some rooms at the Poly which do not have balconies. The garden wing rooms at the CR for the most part do not ((I know some do have patios). The POR rooms do not. I am not 100% sure but I am thinking not all of the BC rooms do. Maybe somebody can answer that for sure.

POR's balconies are HUGE!!! They go all the way around the building! Mind you, they're not very private.

Those are not balconies -- they are external hallways.

You need either a deluxe or DVC resort. If you go with a DVC resort then you need a 1 bedroom at either AKV, OKW or BLT. The balconies at OKW are the largest on property. The units there are also the largest.

Is there any way to guarantee a balcony/patio room at the Poly?

We stayed at Old Key West, and the balcony was HUGE! Had a full table that would seat 6, with room to spare! We rented points from David's Rentals. Could not have been happier, and felt we paid a fair price. Also, it had 2 baths, and a washer-dryer in the room!
