    Dave, thank you for the response. I figured it would be a lot of work given the variety of room types, but thought it was worth a shot. If I could trouble you with one more question on this topic…We’re a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 small children) and looking at studios as a cost savings over regular rooms (and for many WDW vacations over the coming years). We’ve stayed in the regular rooms at the Polynesian, but not the DVC rooms. Given their size, location, and capacity for 5 we’re thinking Polynesian or Grand Floridian studios. Is there a noticeable difference in the “livability” of these studios? Thank you again.

      Josh, the GF rooms are on about every dimension more livable. The Poly rooms are more fun.

    This is great, very useful. I was curious if the same information was available anywhere for the DVC rooms (studios). I read in your review of the Polynesian Studios that the bedroom was shorter than a value, but wider than the Grand Floridian Studios. I was having trouble putting the information all together into how it plays out for the overall size of the bedroom. The DVC resources I’ve found only list total sq ft. Thank you.

      Josh, not that I know of. I used to keep that data I’d need for this, but did not have it backed up and lost it in a hard drive crash. (I have other faults as well 🙂 ) Inspired by your question, I’ll start collecting it again, but with >30 room types it’ll take me several years to compile it…

    Are there any rooms or suites at any of the Disney resorts that have connecting rooms?

    We’re planning a family trip in December, but we aren’t all going on the same day. First group (1 adult, 2 kids under 10) will arrive on a Friday evening and check out the following Friday. Second group (grandparents) will arrive either Sunday evening or Monday morning and check out on Friday.

    My daughter really loves Fort Wilderness with the bunk beds, but it’s out of her price range. So the ideal set-up would be connecting rooms so that the grandkids can switch out nights – one kid with Mom & Dad, one kid with Grandma & Grandpa.

    The kids won’t survive a whole week of sleeping in the same bed.

      Donna, there’s a million connecting rooms at WDW, but there are no guarantees you will get them–and especially with your different check in days.
