Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We are a family of 5 planning a trip in 8/2010. I stayed at Pop century last year (just my daughter & I) and saw they had some conjoined rooms. Is it cheaper to request 2 conjoined rooms or just stay at a moderate resort that accomodates larger famil

- Hi --
The rates I'm about to mention are using the 2008 rates. The rates for 2010 are not out yet, and will almost certainly be higher than this, so just use this as a ballpark to get a general idea.
Currently, for most of August, a night at a standard value resort room is $82. Two connecting rooms would put you at $164. In these two rooms you could theoretically sleep up to eight people and you would have access to two bathrooms. You can compare this to a standard room at Port Orleans Riverside that lists for $149. The most people you could fit here would be five, and this is only if you were able to reserve one of the few rooms that have trundle beds. Otherwise the moderate rooms only sleep four. Also, you would only have one bathroom. As you can see, two value rooms would be $15 more per night, but you would have some increased options with this.
Another alternative you might consider is the Family Suites at the All Star Music resort. These are listing for $184 per night in 2008 during most of August (again, prices WILL change). These sleep six people, have two bathrooms, and also have a small kitchenette with a refrigerator and a microwave. By using this, it would likely be possible to save a bit of money by having breakfast in your room.
Hope this helps you make your decision.
