Disney is one of the more popular destinations for families of all sizes. Over the years, it has become a place for families to visit and a chance for families divided across the world to get together in one place for a reunion. However, booking multiple rooms for a family larger than four can be costly. That is why Disney has build accommodations that will sleep larger families in a single room or suite.
Since most Disney accommodations are designed to accommodate families of four, there are ways to book two rooms, but still be together. If you are doing this, it is important to understand Disney booking lingo before booking your rooms. When making your reservations request adjoining or connecting rooms. If you do not do this, the rooms may be split and in some cases in separate buildings and/or floors. If you have older kids it might be okay to ask for adjoining rooms, because they will be side-by-side. But those with smaller kids may want to request connecting rooms, which are those with a door in between the two rooms.
