That's hilarious! You'll enjoy the extra space and the location. The real problem now is that it will be hard to go back to a value or a moderate resort. (They should have been able to put you in a standard value room, too, but you're staying at the Yacht Club.)

As stated by PP's, you can stay in a value or moderate as a family of four, until the last child turns 3. That CM gave you incorrect information.

If there are two infants under the age of three, only one will count towards occupancy per fire codes. It is assumed in the code that the 6 month old will be carried by one adult and the other adult will take the 20 month old and the 3 year old - the adult with the 6th month old is not considered taking up room in the fire corridor during exiting. The second adult would because most likely she would be carrying the 20 month old on her hip and guiding the younger child in the corridor, thus taking up the room of three people.

She got bad info. As long as one is under the age of three, you are a family of four plus one under the age of three. You book the four of you and call to add the infant. You should be fine in any hotel room that sleeps four. Save the money if you don't really want to spend it on the Yacht Club.

One child under age 3 will not count toward room occupancy (they will not extend that to two children - only one child.)

They will let you into a room with a capacity of 4 since one of the infants will not count toward room capacity. The cast member who told you otherwise was in error.

Once all your kids are 3 and older, you will need to find rooms with a capacity of 5 or more.

Upon further questioning due to these responses, Wifey has admitted that the CM did indeed tell her that it would be fine.

She only told me they said "no" because she thought it was a funny way to break the news about the new resort.

I'm a full time student at UGA, and she works a million hours a week to get me though my degree at that horribly expensive school, pay the mortgage, children's school tuition, power bill, etc etc etc. If a lady wants to live luxuriously for a few days at Disney, who am I stop her?

The baby and 20-month-old are both "Under 3" and 1 will not count towards room occupancy (and both we still be free admission-wise). However, the CM that your wife spoke with is wrong. You're considered to be a family of 4 + 1 infant which means that, yes, you could book a room in a value resort. Would I recommend it? Nope; I simply cannot imagine 5 humans occupying 260 sq ft of space. If you're still willing to spend the money on YC, go for it - it's an incredible resort! But keep it in the back of your head that you could easily downgrade to a Mod.

No matter what anyone else was told, only one child under age 3 is supposed to be exempt from room occupancy limits.

Actually one of the babies should have counted. You only get on infant free. No matter what the ages, a value room doesn't hold 6 people. Only 5.

No. Call back. They will let your family stay in any single, four-person room onsite.

LOL, actually the first thing I thought of when you said she was in another room when she called, was that she was pulling your leg in order to stay at the Yacht Club.

Enjoy. Keep up with that degree. You will def need it once you have a taste of the deluxes I'm sure. LOL

While I usually agree with kaytieeldr, I say don't call back. If your wife wants to stay at the Yacht Club, that's where you should stay. Sounds like your DW got the right information anyway and just snowed you to get the deluxe resort. Good luck at school. Glad you can enjoy some luxury for a bit.

Enjoy! There are six of us (2 are under 3) and we will happily squeeze into one room at the deluxe resorts. It is worth it to have such a great location, imo.
