I will go into more detail regarding resorts and the advantages/disadvantages of staying onsite versus offsite in a future post but, for now, I simply want to mention that a new value resort is scheduled to open in May. Most resort rooms at Disney can only be booked for 4 people.And I know that you can lie and squeeze 5 people into a room designated for 4 people and get away with it (which would require separate purchase of park tickets and not being on the dining plan if it was offered for free for that extra person) but let's suppose that everyone is playing by the rules. It is sometimes easier that way.
Disney classifies its resorts into three categories: value, moderate and deluxe. Obviously, the value resorts are more inexpensive than the deluxe. Currently, the only value resort with family suites is the All-Star Music Resort. These suites sleep up to 6 guests and contain a separate bedroom and two bathrooms.
