I’ve already booked a room for this trip (actually, two reservations, both with two rooms) but I’m curious of a few things.
As a family of six (me, DW, DS15, DS15, DD14, and DS7 at the time of our next trip) we have never booked more than one room at a hotel (at WDW or elsewhere). Last year we were able to get a room at BC that slept six adults (two queens and a pull-out) - but there don’t seem to be many of those kinds of rooms to come by.
Disney’s site does not make it easy to find rooms that will suit our needs - there is no ability to indicate we need two rooms on a single reservation, for example. I’m curious how other people search? I end up keeping two incognito windows open, one looking for a party of six, and one looking for a party of three. Is there an easier way? In theory I’d love to be able to consider a normal room at Riviera and a second room there (I believe they are called “studio” rooms) that only sleeps two.
I’m also tempted to consider a villa that says it would sleep five - a king, queen, and single would actually work for our party of six - but I don’t know what WDW’s tolerance for over-filling a room is (I assume it’s zero).
Am I missing any strategies?
