9 of Our Favorite Disney World Resorts That Sleep Families of 5 or More
Planning a Walt Disney World getaway with a family of five or more can be a tricky task given that most Disney World standard rooms are equipped to comfortably sleep up to 4 adults. However, whether you’re looking for more space for your family to spread out or will travelling as a slightly larger family, there are still a wide range of wonderful resorts for the choosing (if you know where to look!) We here at MickeyBlog want to take the guesswork out of finding accommodation that is right for your group. With that in mind, here’s a list of 9 of our favorite properties for travelling parties of 5 or more!
1. Disney’s All-Star Music Resort
Though the standard rooms at Disney’s All Star Music only offer two double beds and sleep four, this colorful value property does offer Family Suites. Coming it a spacious 520 sq. ft, the suites are slightly more costly but can comfortably sleep a family of 6. The family suites feature 1 queen bed, 1 twin-sized sleeper chair, 1 double-sized sleeper sofa and 1 twin-sized sleeper ottoman. The suite also features a kitchenette with sink, microwave and fridge. There are also 2-bathrooms. Non-discounted prices start at around $230 a night.
2. Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
The themed family suites at this Value property are probably the most popular accommodation for slightly larger families. The suites offer a fun-filled 565 sq ft. of space and are themed after Disney and Pixar films including The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Cars. This level of accommodation can comfortably sleep families of up to 6. The layout includes a queen bed, a double-sized table bed, and a double pullout sofa. There is also a kitchenette and 2 bathrooms. The family suites here are a bit pricier than All Star Music and usually range between $325 – $450 a night.
3. Caribbean Beach Resort
Here at MickeyBlog, we can’t say enough about this Moderate Resort which has recently undergone extensive refurbishments. The property offers standard rooms that can sleep up to 5 guests (pictured above). The rooms feature 2 queen-sized beds as well as one-child-sized pull-down bed. The pull-downs are not the best option for older children or adults as they are a bit on the small side but are perfect for larger families with smaller children. The average size of a standard room is 300 sq ft. Rates are usually in the $225-$280 range.

4. Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside
Coming in at 314 sq ft. the rooms in the Alligator Bayou section of this beautiful resort can sleep up to 5 adults. Similar to Caribbean Beach Resort, this resort also features 2 queen-sized bed with a child-sized pull out bed. Rates at Port Orleans Riverside tend to be just a little bit more expensive than Caribbean Beach and typically range from $250 – $350 a night.
5. Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground
For those looking to “rough it” Disney-style, these self-contained cabins are just the ticket! Each cabin is roughly 500 sq ft and features a full-sized kitchen with refrigerator, microwave/convection oven, and dishwasher. The bedroom offers a queen bed and two bunk beds and in the living room, you’ll find a double-sized sleeper sofa. Prices for the cabins vary depending on the season but are usually in the $320 – $420 range.
6. Disney’s Beach Club Resort
For those looking for Deluxe-level accommodation that can comfortably sleep a family of five, the Beach Club is one of my favorite options. The property is in walking distance to Epcot and a short boat ride away from Hollywood Studios. It also sits adjacent to Disney’s bustling Boardwalk area. A typical standard room here features 2 queen-sized beds and a day bed. The rooms come in at a spacious 400 sq ft. Because it is a deluxe property, they also offer concierge-level rooms with the same configuration. For those looking to splash out, there are also suites that sleep families of up to 7. Standard rooms start in the $400 – $500 a night range with suites sitting upwards of $15000.
7. Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
For those looking for some tropical island vibes during your Disney resort stay than this is the property for you. The Polynesian underwent a recent renovation and more rooms can now comfortably sleep a family of 5. The rooms offer 2 queen beds and 1 child-sized day bed and come in at about 400 sq. ft. Non-discounted rooms at this deluxe monorail property usually come in at $500 – $700 a night. Club Level rooms are also available from $700 – $900 a night. There are also a few 1-bedroom suits for upwards of $1000 a night.
8. Disney’s Old Key West Resort
We here at MickeyBlog find this stunning deluxe villa property to be consistently underrated. One of Disney’s original DVC properties, you’ll find spacious 1 and 2 bedroom villas here that are perfect for larger families. The 1 bedrooms can accommodate 5 guests and feature a full kitchen, king-sized bed, queen-size leeper sofa, and a twin-size sleeper chair in the living room. These come in at 942 square feet with rates starting at $500 a night. The two-bedroom villages are among the largest at Walt Disney World and come it at a whopping 1,300 sq ft. They feature 1 king bed, 2 queen beds, a queen sized sleeper sofa and 1 twin-size sleeper chair. They also boast 2 restrooms and full kitchen and usually start at around $800 a night.
9. Disney’s Riviera Resort
This deluxe villa resort is now taking bookings for travel dates beginning late Fall 2019 and offers some nice options for larger families. The resort celebrates the grandeur of Europe with warm and stylish accommodation. The Deluxe Studios which come it at around $500 a night feature a queen bed, 1 queen-sized pull-down bed and 1 single pull down bed and sleeps up to five adults. The 1 Bedroom Villas start at $700 and feature a king bed, a queen-sized pull-down bed and a single pull-down bed. There’s also a 2 Bedroom Villa option with 1 king bed, 2 queen beds and 1 queen-size pull-down bed and a single pull-down bed. It sleeps up to 9 adults and comes in at $1000 and above a night.
