    I am planning a trip to WDW for my children and myself. After making ressies for CSR for 6/16-6/20/08, my DH decided he wanted to go, plus my DD's best friend. Now my DH is not going !!!!! He went w/ us last year (Poly) and two years prior to that (AKL). Wish we had the $$$ to stay deluxe again, but saving for DD's college is now upon us !!!

    Does anyone have any reccommendations for a moderate resort for 1 adult, 2 16 year olds, one 12 year old and my DS age 6 w/ Down Syndrome. He usually sleeps w/ me and does not need his own bed. Thanks wonderful Dis'ers !!! :scared1:

    The only mod you can stay at with 5 people in 1 room is POR. Their Alligator Bayou section has a trundle bed that pulls out from underneath the regular bed that a 5th can sleep on. I have stayed there twice and it is a beautiful resort!:thumbsup2

    Port Orleans - Alligator Bayou has trundle beds that allow 5. Also, deluxes (except most AK and WL) also allow up to 5....hopefully you will have a code associated w/your name! I have read on the boards that the trundle can be a little small, so you may want to also consider the family suites at ASMU. The kitchenette and 2 bathrooms would come in handy, and there is room for dh if he changes his mind again! Happy planning.

    What about a family suite at All Star Music? You'll get 2 full bathrooms!
    Another option is POR. The rooms in the Alligator Bayou section can accomodate up to 5 people because of the trundle bed. See which one would be cheaper for your stay.
