Hotel for 5?

DH and I are trying to find a hotel that will work for our family! We are planning going the week after Easter for about 7 nights, and we need hotel advice! It will be myself, DH, DD15, DD 15, DS 11. The girls are okay with sharing a bed, its just getting somewhere that we can convince DS to sleep .We would like it best to not have a car and to stay as close as possible, depending on DH's work, we might be able to afford onsite, so really any place of suggestion would be great. TIA.

Best Western Park Place Inn & Mini Suites! We've stayed there 4 times and LOVE it. If your son is okay will a pull out sofa bed you'll be set in a mini suite! It's directly across from the main gates and pricing isn't too bad. If you won't have a car they give a discount for that too!

It's such a great location! We don't plan to stay anywhere else in the near future! (Unless we somehow can afford to stay on site but I don't see anyone in my family wanting to pay those prices anytime soon! Haha)

We're booked into the Fairfield Inn for our trip in April. Not a suite, but has a pull out single bed. I'm hoping it works for our family of 5 (dh & I & 3 boys).

The RI Maingate will give you a free rollaway, as long as one is available. It probably helps if you request it beforehand.

How about the Kids Suite at Del Sol? Directly across the street, with two queen beds and bunk beds. I think Howard Johnson's has something like that too.

We're staying at the Desert Inn & Suites. They have a number of different room configurations. We're getting the option with 2 bedrooms (4 queens total), b/c my parents will be with us, but there's also one with 2 queens and a sleeper sofa in a separate living area.

Fairfield Inn. Two queen beds and a pull out sleeper twin bed/chair. Best property that is closest to the gate.

If you stay onsite, choose the Disneyland Hotel or Paradise Pier. The rooms are big and there are usually two queen beds and a single sofa sleeper in each room.

For our big family, we have reservations for a Kids Suite at the Howard Johnson Anaheim. It's two rooms: a king bed in one (and yay, privacy at night! ) and a bunk bed and sofa sleeper in the other room.
