If you are traveling to Disney World as a large family you have unique challenges ahead. First, find the best Disney resorts for families of 5 or more.  As a good rule of thumb, if it’s room you want, you will need a villa or a suite, preferably at an older hotel. The older hotels have the most square footage.  Besides that, distance to the parks is important. As a large group, you may want to avoid lengthy transportation waits. With that in mind, here are five excellent choices to consider.

Cabins at Fort Wilderness

If you will be on the go a lot to the different parks, you may want to decide on a resort that is close to your main destinations and convenient, reliable transportation.
