I have 5 kids, and am trying to budget for our March trip. This year, I want to avoid the "Mommy, please can I have this" part of our trip so I would like to purchase gift cards ahead of time. What amounts do you suggest for kids ages, 2, 4, 8, 1

I want to know where I can stay on Disney property with a family of 5 instead of 4. All resorts seem to be limited to 4 only...there are 3 adults and 2 kids. Do any of the all star resorts have accommodations to fit my needs? Thanks, Donna
