If you need accommodations for a large family for your next Disney World Vacation, check out this post for options for Family Suites at Disney World that are perfect for large families.

For a large family planning a Walt Disney World Vacation, finding Disney Resorts that accommodates the entire family can be hard! For families of five or more, finding a Walt Disney World resort to fit your family’s size, needs and budget can be a challenge.

So if you are looking for Family Suites at a Disney World Resort, I have a few options for you to start with in this post that sleep big families of 5-12 people. Some of these properties are a part of the Disney Vacation Club but you can still book for nightly stays through Disney reservations subject to availability.

On our last visit to WDW, we stayed at Pop Century and loved it! The redesigned rooms were fresh and convenient, and the pool was excellent for our toddler. Now that our family is a bit bigger, we’re anxious to try out the family suites a Art of Animation! I love the ability to have some meals or at least snacks in our room, especially breakfast on park days when we want to get out the door quickly. Plus, having older kids, I think they’ll absolutely love the larger pool at AOA!
