Five adults in a Four adult room?

Walt Disney World: Can we allow one more adult to stay in a room meant for four adults?

Are we able to stay at a Moderate Resort (Port Orleans French Quarters) if we have five adults and one child? We have a reservation already for four adults and one child (age 2) but there is a chance one more adult (our son) may be able to join us. I realize that it will be tight for us but that is okay. We just would prefer not to have to pay for an additional room. Do we have to tell Disney there will be one more in the room? Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful?

I don't think it's a big deal. It will be pretty cramped, as most rooms only have standard or queen beds, and most do not have lots of floor space (we found it little tight in a Port Orleans French Quarter room with just 2 adults and a pack and play). You might want to consider the luggage situation also, since another guest means another set of luggage that you will need to store somewhere.

There's really no way for Disney to police how many people are in a room, but realize that the extra person will not be issued a room key, which means they won't have access to the pools and other ammenities of the resort or other Disney resorts while you are there (aside from the cafeteria and arcade of course).

Other than him not getting any of the Disney perks, I think Disney really cares that much.

He might have to sleep on the couch!

I would maybe consider looking for a bigger room anyway since it is going to be tight squeeze. Old Key West is a good option!

Thank you for your reply! I will consider your advice but it may be our only option.

No, don't tell Disney. You will be charged for the extra person and probably insist you rent a cot. A cot can cost as much as an extra room. Or they will refuse service or insist you get an extra room. Just deal with it. It will be very cramped.
