    Chrissy Asked

    My husband and I are coordinating a small family reunion to WDW in August of 2015. There will be 10 of us in total, ages 22+. Are there any suggestions on where to stay considering we are all adults?

    Chrissy:

    Our family of 19 stayed at the Fort Wilderness cabins several years ago and found it to offer so many advantages over regular hotel rooms. With the size of your party, you could easily fit into two cabins as each one sleeps six. Because Disney doesn't guarantee adjoining or connecting rooms, I have also surmised that it is easier to get two cabins next to each other than hotel rooms because the cabins don't fill up like some of the more popular hotels.

    Another advantage of the cabins is the common space. You not only have a large living room and full-size kitchen but also a deck outside where you can gather along with a picnic table and grill. Hotel rooms  that don't have a suite set-up can make gathering inconvenient or just down-right uncomfortable. Best of all, if your group is up for an adventure, you can take one of the boats from the fort's marina over to the hotels that sit on Bay Lake to enjoy a dinner together and "resort hop" or just head down to the fort's own Crockett's Tavern for an evening.

    If you have a little bit more money in your budget, consider a 3-bedroom stay at one of the DVC Resorts. You may want to ask fellow Disney Mom and DVC Specialist Juliette for her suggestions via her page here.

    Wishing y'all a magical reunion!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
