Hotels for Larger Families in the Disney World Area
Are you a “larger” family and want to go to Disney World? Most Disney rooms are intended for families of four or less – so finding hotels that accommodate families of 5 or more presents some unique logistical challenges. Here are some of our Favorite Hotels for Larger Families in the Disney World Area.
Today, I will only be focusing on off-property hotels and resorts that are a short distance from the parks. I am sure there are more that are affordable as well, but I am staying fairly close to the parks and all of the action!
I have a family of five and in Disney standards, we are considered a large family. Therefore, there are fewer affordable options out there. BUT, don’t despair, they are out there and I am here to share what those options are! We have stayed in a few of these resorts and hotels and have been very pleased with them. All of these options have great reviews and they will not disappoint.
So let’s dive right into hotels for larger families in the Disney World area!

Need help deciding if you should stay on or off Disney Property? Check out our Top 10 Reasons YOU Should Stay On Property at Walt Disney World and our Pros and Cons of Staying Off-Property to help you decide.
Before you make your decision to stay on or off Walt Disney World Resort Property make sure you research and get all of your facts. What’s right for one family may not be right for the next. My family and I have stayed on and off property and have had different experiences each time. All good, but with each trip we have different things that are important to us. So, keep that in mind, depending on what you want to accomplish during your vacation will determine whether you want to stay on or off-property.
