If you have a minivan full of children, traveling with extended family, or meeting your best friends at Walt Disney World, you may be wondering where is the best place to stay on property. Will you need to book multiple adjoining hotel rooms? What if there are more small children that can’t stay alone than number of adults traveling? Fortunately for large travel parties, Walt Disney World has several options for accommodating more than the 4 or 5 people that fit in a standard-size resort room.
Found at Art of Animation Resort and All Star Music Resort, family suites can accommodate up to 6 guests. Featuring a separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed, 2 pull-down queen-sized beds, and 2 full bathrooms, these suites are perfect if you are not planning to spend much time in your room! They also include a kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave which make having a quick breakfast or snack in the room a synch. The suites at All-Star Music Resort are themed with adorable wall hangings featuring animated Disney characters. Bonus points go to Art of Animation Resort for being on the Skyliner giving guests easy access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios!
At Art of Animation, guests can choose between 3 themes for family suites featuring popular animated movies – Cars, Finding Nemo, and The Lion King.
If there is room in your budget to spend a little more or if you are splitting the cost of accommodations several ways, guests with large travel parties can also book club level rooms and deluxe suites at a Disney Deluxe resort. Accommodating between 6-10 guests, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, The Yacht and Beach Clubs, BoardWalk Inn, Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian Resorts offer suites and club level rooms that offer more space and more places to sleep! If you choose a club level room, you will also enjoy extra amenities like access to exclusive health clubs and lounges. At Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, guests can choose a cabin that sleeps 6 people which also comes with a full kitchen!
Two and Three- bedroom DVC Villas
When traveling with a large party to Walt Disney World, guests will find the most space and comforts of home at a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Villa. If you are not a DVC owner yourself, you can rent DVC points in order to book two- and three-bedroom villas at various Walt Disney World Resorts. Consider Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, Old Key West Resort, Boardwalk Villas, Beach Club Villas, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, or the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa when looking for accommodations for two or more bedrooms. These spacious and well-appointed villas will welcome you home each day and give you the convenience of a full kitchen, washer, dryer, and two full bathrooms!
If a two bedroom villa is not available at your resort of choice, you can also inquire about a lock-off villa. A lock-off villa combines a studio and one-bedroom villa by opening the adjoining interior door. This will also provide you with two full bathrooms and two kitchenettes!
No matter how many you will be traveling with on your next trip to Walt Disney World, there are many resort and room options from which to choose. From affordable to luxurious, there are rooms, villas, and suites to accommodate any budget and number of guests. Have you ever stayed in a suite or DVC villa?
