Teens in the parks

    Planning trip with DH, son - 17, daughter - 15 and me. Kids would like separate beds. Looking for best options for onsite hotels with 3 beds. Can you list all hotels that can accommodate us? Are bunk beds big enough for adult sized children? Thanks!

    chEARs Sharon!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I have two teenagers, and one of the keys to family peace is for them to have their separate spaces, so I understand your dilemma!

    We recently stayed at the Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, and I think that would be the perfect option for your family. The Villas sleep nine in three bedrooms (including a bunk bed, which my kids loved), and come with a full kitchen and grill outside. This way, everyone not only gets their bed but their own room! I’m a “glamper,” not a camper, so it was just rustic enough to make it adventurous, but close enough to the action that we were only a five-minute walk away from boat transportation to Disney Springs.

    Another glamping option is the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. They are stand-alone bungalows that come with full kitchen, outdoor grill, and best of all - bunk beds big enough for the kiddos (Now the only argument will be who gets the top bunk!). The three of you can “rough it” in comfort and still be only a 10-minute boat ride away from Magic Kingdom Park.

    At Disney’s Beach Club Resort and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, there are a few more options for your consideration. Standard rooms sleep five and have the option of two Queen Beds and one twin-size Day Bed or Sleeper Chair so that everyone can have their own bed! You have a similar situation at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. Both the Preferred Room and the Standard View - 5th Sleeper can sleep up to five people. The rooms have two Queen beds and a pull-down sleeper that would be perfect for your daughter. My kids always fight over who gets to sleep in the cool hideaway bed, so good luck with that!

    Finally, the Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort are both affordable, and comfortably sleep up to six adults. At the Resort to the Stars, there is a Queen Bed, as well as a Double-Size Sleeper Sofa, and two Twin-Size Sleeper Chairs/Ottomans. With both the Twin-Size options, your 17 and 15-year-old would both get their own domain! I love the recently renovated Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. They are themed to perfection, and very generous in size. The Suites there have a combination of three Double-Size bed options, so everyone can sleep in comfort.

    Good luck with your Resort search!
