    Thinking about going next year with a bunch of our family. We are not all going to be staying in the same hotel so I'm not worried about everyone staying together. But my sister and I will be staying together and she snores. So my question is where can we stay that has 2 rooms? What's the room category? Would that be a 1 bedroom suite? Villa?
    And I'm assuming a suite is expensive, so would it be cheaper to get 2 separate (maybe adjoining) rooms?

    A 1-bdrm villa will only have 1 actual bed. The living room will have a pullout sofa (and maybe a pullout chair depending on the resort). These resorts are in the 'Deluxe Villa' category. There are some Deluxe resorts that have suites, but I have never stayed in one of those suites, so I can't speak to those.

    Connecting rooms would be cheaper, especially if you go down to value or moderate resort category. (Connecting rooms have a door the connects them, adjoining rooms are next to each other).

    I think that in every scenario except two separate rooms, the rooms with a separate sleeping area would mean that one person has to sleep on a sofa bed. The 1 bedroom villa, a 1 bedroom suite, and the Fort Wilderness cabin would all have separate rooms for sleeping.

    It isn't a guarantee to get connecting rooms so if you go that route you'll have to be prepared to potentially have a room no where near hers. The one-bedroom villas have separate sleeping areas, but the second bed will be the pull out couch. Maybe alternate between the two so you each get to experience the nice king bed?

    AoA would be less expensive, possibly, than a 1 br villa—but again, it has a pull out couch. Having 2 bathrooms is nice though.

    Your cheapest option will be two rooms at a value resort. You can place a request for connecting rooms on the reservation, but it's not guaranteed. If you absolutely want to be together, your next best bet will most likely be a family suite at ASMu and then AoA. The cabins at Ft. W would also accommodate you, a deluxe room at WL (though that's pricey), a Jr. Suite at CBR or a 1-bedroom villa at any DVC resort. There are also 1-bedroom suites at some of the deluxes, but they are also quite pricey.

    Or she can do a sleep study and get a Cpap.

    My DH snores and has done a sleep study and does not have sleep apnea. Having seen those things I certainly wouldn't want to wear one to sleep!

    Go with two rooms wherever is in budget and request "connecting" if you want a door between them OR "adjoining" if you want them in close proximity to each other. Both are only a request. This gives you two real beds, two bathrooms and legit walls between you at snooze time.


    The second bed is a fold down murphy bed with real mattress.
    The third bed is pull out couch.
    But yes to two full bathrooms, one off bedroom and one right by murphy bed.

    I used to snore, thankfully dropping some weight solved that issue.

    I can't get a solid sleep if somebody is snoring so I'd vote for adjoining rooms.

    What's the difference between a 1 br villa and 1 br suite? Is it the kitchenette in the villa?

    I travel with MIL & SIL who snore horribly. I swear the walls will cave in because they snore so badly. I plug Bose noise canceling earbuds into my phone and listen to a white noise app in order to sleep. It works great for me. We are going on an eight night cruise next year and I’m bringing two pairs of the earbuds in case one pair breaks.

    The 1-bedroom villas are at the DVC properties and would give you a king in the master, pull-out in the living room, plus a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. The 1-bedroom suites are typically club level rooms on the resort side (deluxe properties) and would, again, come with a queen or king plus a pull-out but no kitchen or w/d. The suites come with club level privileges and are, typically, more expensive than the villas. In either case, someone is on a pull-out. IMHO, if you don't mind a value, your most comfortable option would be 2 separate rooms so you have real beds and two bathrooms. The family suites at AoA and ASMu also offer two bathrooms, but, again, someone will be on a pull-out.

    You'll probably be better off just getting two separate rooms.

    I can't speak for ASMu but at AoA, there is a bed in the bedroom and a very comfortable (I found it more comfortable than the regular bed) Murphy bed with a regular mattress - not a pull-out. So, each person would have a bed and a full bathroom but no kitchen or washer/dryer at AofA. With two people, no one would be on the sofa pull-out.

    I've stayed in several different 1 br DVC resorts and I would choose AofA in the OP's situation.

    This doesnt always work for everyone. Ear plugs NEVER stay in my ears all night long. They always fall out. Its soooo irritating.

    I vote for two rooms at a value. Much cheaper. its important to get good sleep on vacation.

    Two separate rooms most definitely. I need my sleep especially while on vacation. Especially a Disney vacation.
