You could rent a 2 bed- this is Boardwalk standard , Beach Club is the same layout. Rent via Davids, would be cheaper often, someone else on here just booked Boardwalk via Davids. The points at Boardwalk standard view (this view) are very similar to OKW- try to stay one of them, great value in fact best value rooms on property and Boardwalk is a fabulous hotel. You dont see it as much sold in the U.K., as you do USA. This would be $3600 (thats $ not and no tax to pay) and free parking for 5 nights next August, a bit higher if you went into Friday and Saturday. You could split this with the parents. The bed in the living room is a U.K. Kingsize (US queen), same as the one there you can see in the studio bit of it. Theres also a bed under the TV there so this sleeps 10.

Our kids are 16 (girl) and 9 (boy) and the Beach Club rooms work just fine for us.

If they had to share a bed, both for sleeping and chilling-in-the-room time it wouldn't work, but with the day bed, the format is just fine.

Our entire holiday was this...

10 nights - Beach Club
2 nights - Animal Kingdom Lodge (only because I forgot to try and extend the Beach Club by 2 more nights!)
4 nights - Disney Dream cruise
5 nights - house with pool in Davenport

We intentionally had the house bit at the end so they each had their own room and lots of space to themselves, just in case!

Thats really useful info for future trips, thank you. We have a booking already with free dining and tickets so need to book within that offer.

Of course, I forgot about the sleeper sofa at the YC! That would mean no bed sharing as this trip were on now I shared with my daughter and hubby with the boy and none of us get any sleep as they both fidget so much!

We will have 5 nights at the YC, 10 in a villa on Emerald Island and 2 nights at Lauderdale by the sea. I think if we want to do onsite in any future trips where were onsite longer than 5 nights then we would look at a 1 bed. Thanks again for your input.
