Can you book two rooms with an adjoining door?
Back in 2011 my husband and I were blessed with the birth of our third child, thus starting the countdown to how many more Disney trips we had remaining before we had to figure out what to do about our hotel rooms, since most resorts only allow 4 to a room. Luckily, there are a few resorts that sleep 5 people to a room, without having to upgrade to a suite, but what if we wanted to try something different after awhile?
Lucky for us, Disney does offer rooms with adjoining doors. This is a great option for families with 5 or more. When I was pricing our coming vacation (the first one since my youngest turned 3 and is now counted in our total) we found that if we didn’t want to stay in one of the few resorts that sleeps 5 to a room, it would be less expensive to book two standard rooms in a value resort with adjoining doors than to stay in a suite. Not only would this have cost us less, but it would have provided us with an extra bathroom, an option that we might want in the future with 5 of us (4 girls) trying to get ready at the same time.
On our last trip with only 4 paying family members, we stayed at Port Orleans French Quarter. We were in a room that had the adjoining door, which we didn’t use since we had only booked our one room, however, this is a great option for us in the future. This is one of our favorite resorts and this door would allow us to continue staying at the resort.
Disney does state that if you book multiple rooms they cannot guarantee that your rooms will be adjoining, but that they try to meet all requests. When I called to reserve my room I was assured by the cast member that since we were two adults with 3 children that our rooms would absolutely be adjoining. So, if you are a group of multiple families or friends who want adjoining rooms, Disney will do everything they can to meet your request, but cannot give you a guarantee.
So, you might be asking yourself, “How do I book two adjoining rooms”? If you are interested in booking adjoining rooms, you cannot book online. To reserve rooms in this manner it does require you to call and speak with a cast member at 407-W-DISNEY. OR, if you are interested in booking, but don’t want the hassle of calling to set it all up, I would be happy to assist you as an Independent Travel Agent with World of Magic Travel. Or, maybe you want to see the cost comparisons of two adjoining rooms vs. a suite vs. a resort that sleeps five to a room, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put the information together for you to review (and the best part… it’s at no cost to you).
