Hi, these links no longer seem to work. Any new ones?

Also, I've been looking all over for MAPS of the resorts, and for WDW in general, that I can DOWNLOAD for printing or viewing. PDF files would be nice, especially if I can add sticky notes. Are there any on Passporter? If not, do you know where I can find them? Thanks bunches.

Do let me know which of these links no longer work, as I've just checked every single one and they all seem to be working fine for me.

I don't know of any maps of the resorts for downloading on PassPorter.

Well...I don't know what happened last night because they're all working for me, too, today. But last night I couldn't click through any of them

And if you ever do find Disney Maps, please post where, okay? Thanks for everything.

Room for 8-9

DH and I are thinking of buying into DVC once we purchase our house. We have 6 children that live with us and 1 in college. What DVC resorts would fit us all?

All of the DVC resorts have Two Bedroom Villas which sleep 8 guests. About half of the resorts have an extra bed to sleep 9.

Note that sleeping accommodations are as follows:
- Master bedroom with king size bed
- Guest bedroom with two queen size beds OR one queen bed and a full-size sleeper sofa.
- Living room with queen size sleeper sofa

With two individuals in each bed and sofabed, there are accommodations for 8.

Several resorts have a twin-size convertible chair or murphy bed in the living room to accommodate a 9th guest.

Most resorts also have Grand Villas which sleep 12 or 13. These rooms are dramatically higher in price than a Two Bedroom villa.
