    Hello all - excited to be planning our first Disney trip since the new arrival (now 3). We are a family of 5 with DS(17), DD(10) and the newbie (3). Are there resorts that have roooms that will accommodate the 5 of us in one room?

    Thanks!

    Yes there is a resort for families of 5 it is the port orleans riverside, Riverside has a trundle bed (shorter and narrower than a standard twin bed) that can accomodate a 5th small person

    Let's see, you have a choice of:

    1. A family suite at the All-Stars

    2. Two rooms (with a connecting door between) at any value or moderate resort.

    3. A room with a trundlebed in the Alligator Bayou section of Port Orleans Riverside

    4. A cabin at Fort Wilderness

    5. A standard room at GF, CR, Poly, YC, BC, or BWV

    6. A deluxe room at WL or AKL

    7. A two-bedroom villa at VWL, BCV, BWV, SSR or OKW.

    I think that's all of the options....

    That's comprehensive! Thanks all... I've always wanted to stay at the AKL. We'll work on that one first.

    Is the deluxe room there two Queens and a pull-out or daybed?
