    Hi, new member here. Love your site!

    My in-laws are going to Disney next year, a total of 7 adults and 5 kids(2 under the age of 3). They are only getting 2 rooms at the All-Stars and only telling the desk about 2 adults per room and sneaking the rest in. Are they going to get caught? If so, what will happen?

    I doubt if you will have any problems, since it is based on adult occupancy. very unlikely that you will need to do any sneaking

    I would be less worried about getting caught than how they can fit all those people in 2 rooms at the all stars. While the rooms are adequate for a family of four - six people per room is going to be extremely uncomfortable. They really shold reconsider. Barb

    I smell a troll.If you have read the boards any at all,you know not to ask a question like this.I really and truly think you are trying to get some feathers ruffled with this question.If you are not then the occupancy is 4 in a room with a child under the age of 3 and there is a 10.00 additional adult fee per person after the first 2 adults.there is no way in hell that anyone would want to fit 6 people in a AS room or for that matter any room.Do yourself a favor and get a couple more rooms or get a GV at OKW or BWV.

    12 people crammed into 2 rooms :eek: I wouldn't recommend it....

    If they are caught.. ?

    1) They could ask them to leave, (unlikely)

    2) They could make them take another room in addition to the 2 they already have, (possibly)

    3) They could charge $25.00 per person, per night for the people over the limit, (most likely)

    Everyone should have there own resort ID.. and the ones being "snuck" in will not have any. You are supposed to have resort ID to use Disney Transportation and participate in EMH or E-nights.

    They will need way more towels then provided. (There are no towels at the pools at Allstars - you are supposed to use the ones in the room)

    All and all this just sounds like an awful situation and not a fun holiday, being cramped in the rooms and sneaking around :(

    Wow! I am very impressed with the tact used to respond to this question. When I read the title of the thread, I was almost afraid to read the responses because people sometimes tend to get a bit curt when responding to this type of query.

    I think that Cassie (>>^..^>>) said it best. Maybe you could get away with it, but would you want to? Check for codes and get another room to ensure a happy vacation! I hope you all have a great trip.

    Sounds like something my FIL would try to pull off. I guess I secretly hope they get caught and charged the extra $25 per night which, depending on the rate they get, could be as much or more than an extra room.

    But, as far as the space is concerned, everything is relative. My DH's family of 6 used to camp every vacation in a very small travel trailer - even when the 4 kids were in high school ... so compared to that, 6 in a room at All Stars (with a real bathroom, no less) would seem very spacious and luxurious!

    You gotta be kidding...I'd rather stay home and have a root canal than spend a week with 5 or 6 of my closest friends and relatives in a room at the All Star in the summer!!!
    Why would anyone think that sounded like a vacation??? I'd be begging the people at the front desk to throw us out!!! (LOL)

    Sydnoahmom,

    Not a problem... Oh, and tell them to get some refillable mugs off of eBay (any resort will do) to take with them. Also, be sure they take their swim stuff over and check out Storm-a-long Bay! Plus, if one of the kids in the party is only 3 or 4, just tell the Disney folks they're only 2 so he can get in for free! They can also save money on food in the parks by packing in meals... just use one of the many tables that are available at any of the counter service restaurants! ;) ;) ;)

    Sounds like way too many people for those rooms. That said, don't forget the deodorant!

    Hmmm ... 2 rooms at the All-Stars at 260 square feet per room totals 520 square feet. Divided by 12 equals a little more than 43 square feet per person.

    Sounds REAL Comfy. :smooth:

    Another thing to consider is, only two people per room will be able to use the early entry option, someones going to be left behind.

    Maybe you should consider 2 rooms at POR. Each room would accommodate 5 plus infant. I personnally would opt for one more room at the All Stars, just for the xtra bathroom. We just returned last week. We had 2 rooms at A/S Movies. 5 adults and 1 child, so that was 3 people per room and it still wasn't enough space for us. I think next time we are going for 2 rooms at 2 different resorts....

    I don't see a problem!

    2 people per bed, 1 crib per room, and 1 child on the floor per room. Of course, even if you limit bathroom time to 10 minutes/person in the morning, it'll still take an hour to get dressed; better hope that no one gets sick. Then you'd better add in some extra time to hide the sleeping bags, so mousekeeping won't find them. But perhaps that won't be a problem, as they won't be able to walk in the room at all due to all of the luggage. :eek:

    Sound like a great time! :rolleyes:

    I'm with SB! Let me call my dentist right now. ;)

    I agree with the posters who say to get one more room - just to have the extra bathroom, I think it would be well worth it. We stayed at ASMu in March of 1999, and it was crowded with 3 of us in a room (DH, DS 9 at the time, and me). Three rooms at the AS resorts might be cheaper than two larger ones somewhere else.

    You'll be falling over bodies, luggage and laundry after one day! IMHO, the money saved wouldn't be worth the aggravation of being so crowded.

    Good Luck!
