Family of 6 - help us plan...

Hello everyone - manfriend and I have four kids between us and we're hoping to afford a trip to DW sometime soon for us and our kiddos. We're not opposed to sharing a room but wonder if having to seperate rooms would be more economical. At this point we're open to either on or off site.

I'm hoping those with families similar in size can share their experiences with accomodations and such... thanks for your help.

There are Disney Resort options

2 standard rooms at any Resort

A suite at All Star Music Resort

A Cabin at Fort Wilderness

And of course many Resort Villas


When do you hope to travel ? There is a nice room discount at the moment for stays til mid June

Are all the kids over the age of 3 ?

Here's another question: what are your eating arrangement plans (Dining plan or not?) and will you need "kitchen facilities" per se?

If you're getting the dining plan or don't want to cook meals, simply getting 2 adjoining rooms at any resort should be fine (you'll have two bathrooms this way too).

If you need a kitchen or want a little more privacy and space than a large hotel building affords, one of the cabins at Ft. Wilderness may be the thing for you, but you will have only one bathroom there.

Study this link with the various accomodations and see what may work best for your crew:
