If you are like us, having the luxury of a separate room from the kids is a huge bonus when on a family trip. Whether it is to reduce disturbing other family members from your jet lag, watch a movie with your partner whilst the kids sleep (no one likes to hang out in the bathroom whilst the kids sleep right?) or just to have your space and privacy, a 2 bedroom suite can make a huge difference. 

This selection of family friendly accommodation will help you make that decision of where to stay in Orlando with kids!

Onsite 2 bedroom suites near Disney World

The one, two and three bedroom suites on site typically offer:

  • A fully equipped kitchen
  • Living and dining areas 
  • Separate bedrooms 
  • A washer and dryer

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, Old Key West, part of the Disney Springs Resort area offers 1, 2 and 3 bedroom villa options with access to the parks via boat and bus.

The Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Copper Creek Villas are close to Magic Kingdom and have one, two and three bedroom options. Disneys Polynesian Resort has 2 bedroom Bungalows, a full kitchen and also offers park access via boat, monorail and bus. Copper Creek Villas and Cabin park access is via boat and bus only.

Boulder Ridge at Wilderness is also closest to Magic Kingdom and has one and two bedroomed villas with park access by boat and bus.

Disneys Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village has one, two and three bedroom villas, with fully fitted kitchens and park access via bus. Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House has one and 3 bed only, again with park access via bus.

The Boardwalk Villas, Disney’s Beach Club, are close to Epcot and have one, two, three bedroom villas, with full fitted kitchen and bus and boat access to parks, whereas the Riveria has access via bus and Skyliner.

There are a couple of other cheaper onsite options for Disney World, although these are not technically 2 bedroom suites at Disney World.

Disney’s All Star Resort Suite is a one bedroom suite but has sofa bed options in the lounge area. These also have a microwave, kitchenette & 2 bathrooms. A huge benefit of this hotel is that it is connected to the Skyliner, making it very easy to get to the Epcot and Hollywood Studios parks.

Art of Animation has family suites: Nemo Suites, Cars Suite and Lion King Suites. Again, these have one proper bedroom and a separate lounge area with 2 sofa beds. All of the suites can sleep to 6 adults, with two bathrooms and a kitchenette. It is also connected to the Skyliner for easy access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

Alternatively, most Disney hotels have the option of connecting rooms, so if you wanted to stay onsite you could book two standard rooms at any Disney World value resort (the cheapest option), which would give you 4 double beds and 2 bathrooms in total.
