When looking for Disney Resorts that sleep 5, you are going to want to do your research. While Disney has a ton of resorts that sleep 4, finding those that handle larger families can be more challenging, especially if you are on a budget.
The key to finding affordable Disney Resorts that sleep 5 is knowing what to look for.
Standard Rooms that Sleep 5
A few of the Moderate Resorts like Caribbean Beach & Port Orleans offer standard rooms that have a trundle (or convertible single bed).
These rooms typically have two queen beds and a trundle.
While still the size of a traditional room at Disney, these rooms are great for families that have three children because they allow two kids to share a bed and the third to sleep on the trundle.
These rooms, however, are not optimal for families who are traveling with extended families.
In this case, you may want to opt for two adjoining standard rooms or for a family suite.
If you feel like you need even more room than a standard room offers, but still want to keep it reasonable in terms of price, consider a Disney Family Suite.
Disney Family Suites come in many different sizes, from a one room with two beds and a pull out sofa, to accommodations with separate bedrooms.
If you are travelling on a budget and interested in a family quite, I suggest you look at Art of Animation Resort.
Disney’s Art of Animation Resort has family suites which include two bathrooms, a kitchenette and up to three separate sleeping areas (two beds and a pull out sofa) that can sleep up to six.
These rooms are great when you need the extra room or are traveling with Grandparents.
Having that extra bathroom can make all the difference when travelling with a large group and having the extra living space is nice when you know you will be spending some time in the resort.
You will find family suites in the Finding Nemo, Cars and The Lion King sections of the Art of Animation resort.
If budget isn’t a question, you will find that there are other Disney Resorts that sleep 5 or 6 comfortably. These suites come in various configurations; some with just one room and others with several sleeping areas.
Disney Resorts that Sleep 5 or more
When you are booking your stay at a Disney Resort, you will want to take into account several factors before deciding on the type of room you need.
While you will need a bed for everyone in your party, you are going to want to consider how much time you will be spending in your room.
If you are only going to be sleeping and changing in your room, then you may want to opt for one of the more affordable options.
BUT, if you really think you will be spending more time in your room, you may want to really consider giving yourself adequate space to spread out.
It really all comes down to the specific need of your family.
