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
