Before deciding exactly where you'll stay, you need to decide if you want to stay on Disney property, or off-site at one of the hotels, condos, houses, or campgrounds in the Orlando area. For a vacation destination that prides itself on being a family destination, we were a bit miffed to discover the limited options for families with more than two children.

If you have three kids, or if you're planning on bringing along a friend, you'll find there are only a couple of Disney hotels that allow more than four to a room. If you're traveling with five or more, this will definitely steer you toward one of the off-site options in the area.
