    Hello all...Wondered if anyone has great recommendations on what accomodations I should be thinking about for next year...my huband and 3 kids will be going, in addition to my mom and dad. Aside from getting 2 seperate rooms at a resort, what are our options? What about the villas? Last year we stayed at AKL as a amily of "4" since your littlest was only 2. This year we are trying POR in May, as its is the only moderate that can accomodate a family of 5. We spend a lot of time in the parks...next year, we will go for a week and my parents will meet us for probably 5 days or so, possibly the whole week... just wondering what the most efficient way to handle it is....short of getting 2 seperate rooms. Suggestions appreciated!

    You can always try renting points to stay in a 3 BR at OKW. There you would have tons of space and plenty of bathrooms for everyone. With 7, you could fit in a 2 BR with all the kids on pull-outs. This would work if the grandparents to stay the whole time as you won't be paying for the extra room all the time. Some resorts have a sleeper chair and queen size sofa in the living rooms. I know BCV does not and I think BWV and VWL don't as well.

    My only experience with a party that large staying all together was when we booked a 2 Bdr Villa at the Boardwalk (sleeps 8). Everyone was 21+ and we still felt with 8 adults it was plenty of space. We had a great trip and we always enjoy staying at the boardwalk :goodvibes

    All 2BR villas sleep 8 (master with king, another bedroom with 2 queens & sleeper sofa in the LR)...some will sleep 9 with the additional twin sleeper chair in the LR - those are OKW, Kidani, Jambo (non-value) and BLT.

    Not all 2 bedrooms have 2 queens in the 2nd bedroom. 2 bedroom lock-offs will have a queen and a sleeper sofa in the 2nd bedroom.

    At BCV, not all the dedicated have two queens. Some have a queen bed and a double sleeper sofa. Some of the villas are a bit smaller and two beds would not fit. Only 25 have two queen beds.
