If you are traveling with a large family or group to Disney World, you might consider booking a family suite. Generally, these suites have separate bedrooms and living areas and are more spacious than standard hotel rooms. If you have small children, this can be helpful, as they can sleep in their own space while you remain in the living room.

Selecting a suitable Disney World family suite will depend on your priorities: price, size, amenities, proximity to parks, or something else. Fortunately, many of Disney’s resort hotels offer suites, so you’ll have plenty of choices. Keep reading to see our ranking of the best family suites at Disney World to help you decide.

  • Number of Family Suites: 192

Suites have two full bathrooms, a kitchenette with a microwave, a sink, a small refrigerator and freezer, a single-cup coffeemaker, and free wifi.

Disney World’s All-Star Music suites measure 520 square feet and can accommodate six adults (plus one child under three), making them the smallest suite at the park. However, they are also the cheapest family suite at Disney World.

Theme parks and Disney Springs are accessible via complimentary shared bus transportation. While it is not the best, it runs continuously throughout the day and takes you to the parks for free.

Are the suites at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort right for your family?

The All-Star Music buildings are themed after different types of music, making for a fun and festive atmosphere. And while the resort is smaller and less upscale than some (all) of the other options, it still has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The suites are spacious and well-equipped, and the resort offers plenty of activities for kids.

Although we prefer the suites at Art of Animation, they are more expensive. Disney’s All-Star Music Resort offers THE most affordable family suites at Disney World.

If your top priority is finding a family suite at Walt Disney World at the lowest possible price, then Disney’s All-Star Music Resort is your best bet.

Best Family Suites at a Moderate Resort

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

  • Category: Moderate
  • Size of Suites: Various
  • Number of Family Suites: 43
  • Room Rates: $645 and up (prices vary by date)
  • Accommodations: Up to 6 Adults (plus one child under 3 in a crib)

Families looking for more space and luxury will enjoy the suites at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. These family suites can accommodate up to six guests and feature two bathrooms, a living area, and a balcony or patio. Also, guests can access the rooftop restaurant, bar, and pool.

There are about 30 Junior Suites at the resort, comparable to two standard rooms connected by a single door. A king bed or two double beds are available in the bedroom, and a sleeper sofa or Murphy bed (Sico) is available in the living room. There are two bathrooms. The Junior Suites accommodate up to six people, yet they cost more than two standard rooms.

Additionally, about ten One-Bedroom “VIP” Suites are available. These are the size of three standard rooms combined and have a lot of living room space.

Lastly, there are 3 Two-Bedroom Executive Suites.” These are equivalent in space to 5 standard rooms combined. The price is six times that of a standard room, so it’s not a good option if you want to save money.

Are the suites at Disney’s Coronado Springs suitable for your family?

The Coronado Springs resort is enormous, beautiful, and modern, and it offers a wide variety of suites that can accommodate large groups, including family reunions and business meetings. If you wish to hold a meeting or celebration at the resort, it offers a variety of conference rooms for rent.

As one of the Disney Moderate Resorts, Coronado Springs straddles the line between affordability and luxury. These suites aren’t the best value for a family vacation since they can be more expensive than multiple standard rooms. However, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort – and its new Gran Destino Tower – provide beautiful and modern accommodations, so it may be worth considering if you don’t mind venturing outside the Value category.

Are The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort right for your family?

While cabins aren’t precisely suites, they serve a similar purpose. Families looking to enjoy the outdoors can stay in these accommodations without sacrificing creature comforts. After a busy day at the theme parks, it’s the perfect place to unwind.

With its rustic exterior and cozy interior, the cabin creates the feeling of being in the great outdoors. There are plenty of opportunities to get in touch with nature and relax here.

The resort is truly unique and unlike any other in the park. While the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness aren’t for everyone, we absolutely love them!

Best Theming at a Disney Family Suite

Are the suites at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge right for your family?

Animal Kingdom Lodge is unlike any other resort at Disney. It has an African lodge theme, giving it a unique and magical atmosphere, and you feel like you are on an African safari from the savanna-facing rooms. Disney World foodies will also enjoy the award-winning African-themed restaurants.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of the best Disney World resorts for families. While the suites are more expensive than other Disney World resorts, they are worth the price for the scenery and theming alone.

The lodge is relatively isolated from other theme parks despite being near Animal Kingdom. It’s a downside, but it shouldn’t be a deal-breaker. Families that don’t mind paying extra for a magical experience at Disney World will love the family suites at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Best Resort for Large Disney World Suites

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

  • Category: Deluxe
  • Size of Suites: Up to 1,863 Sq Ft
  • Number of Family Suites: N/A
  • Room Rates: $1521 and up (prices vary by date)
  • Accommodations: Up to 9 Adults (plus one child under 3 in a crib)

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a tropical Disney Deluxe resort that offers family suites for larger groups. The suites vary in size and amenities, but all have at least one bedroom, a parlor area, and a bathroom.

The 1 Bedroom Princess Suite is the resort’s smallest family suite, with 760 square feet of space. It includes one bedroom with two queen beds and a day bed in the parlor.

The larger Princess Suite measures 1212 square feet and has two bedrooms with two queen beds, a wet bar, and a small refrigerator.

For even more space, guests can book the Ambassador Suite, which measures 1513 square feet and has two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a mini-kitchen with a small refrigerator, ice maker, small microwave, and sink.

The most oversized suite at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is the Presidential Suite, also known as the King Kamehameha Suite. This two-story suite measures 1863 square feet and includes two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a parlor. It also has a kitchenette with a small refrigerator and microwave.

Are the suites at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort right for your family?

Polynesian Village offers some of the largest family suites at Disney World. Additionally, the resort is close to the Magic Kingdom theme park and has a monorail stop (along with the Contemporary and Grand Floridan). No, you won’t be able to walk to Magic Kingdom, but who needs it when you have a monorail stop?

The resort also has some of the best restaurants and pools at Walt Disney World. The Polynesian Bungalows are another unique option, but we think those are better suited for honeymoons at Disney World rather than family vacations.

If you want extra space and are willing to pay a premium to stay in a tropical paradise, a family suite at the Polynesian Village Resort is ideal.

Best Pool at Disney Family Suites 

Disney’s Beach Club Resort 

  • Category: Deluxe
  • Size of Suites: Up to 2,200 Sq Ft
  • Number of Family Suites: N/A

Are the suites at Disney’s Beach Club suitable for your family?

Disney’s Beach Club is a Disney Deluxe Resort near the Skyliner and the vibrant BoardWalk district. The location is excellent, and so are the transportation options, landing it among the best of the Disney World hotels.

Guests receive exclusive access to the 3-acre Stormalong Bay water park with pools, waterslides, lagoons, and a lazy river. There’s no need to go to one of the Disney water parks if you stay here. Additionally, families can participate in nightly clambakes, volleyball games, and campfires. Having so many options makes it an excellent place for kids. Furthermore, the Disney Beach Club suites are located on the Club Level, offering extra benefits.

Disney’s Beach Club Resort offers a lot, from its suites to its on-site waterpark to its central location. Even though your money could go further elsewhere, we still think the suites at Disney’s Beach Club Resorts are a decent option for families and groups looking for a fun place to stay.

Best Luxury Suites for Large Families or Groups

Deluxe Villas (at Various Disney Resorts)

A Deluxe Villa can be a good choice for those who need lots of space for their family or group and don’t mind paying a premium for luxury.

DVC members and regular guests can rent villas at 11 resorts on Disney property. The resorts include Animal Kingdom Lodge, Bay Lake Tower, Beach Club, BoardWalk, Boulder Ridge, Copper Creek, Grand Floridian, Old Key West, Polynesian, Riviera, and Saratoga Springs.

Disney’s deluxe villas offer one, two, and three-bedroom units that accommodate up to 12 guests. These include a full kitchen (oven/cooktop, full-sized fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, pots/pans, dishes, & silverware) as well as a clothes washer/dryer, plus a common living area such as a living room beyond the individual bedrooms. There are also smaller villas, called studios, which include a kitchenette (no oven/cooktop/dishwasher) and access to a communal laundry room. Or, opt for unique units such as Treehouse Villas, over-the-water bungalows, or waterfront cabins.

The Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge is our top pick. The Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are part of Disney Vacation Club, and they offer ample space, with 2-Bedroom Villas sleeping up to eight people. A full kitchen is in the room if you wish to prepare meals yourself. Guests can access Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort’s onsite amenities, including pools, restaurants, and a children’s activity center.

Another luxurious option is Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, offering up to three-bedroom villas. With incredible views, monorail transportation, and easy access to Magic Kingdom, the villas offer everything you could want if money isn’t an issue, but proximity to Magic Kingdom is essential.
