Laminating 2 rooms + hallway without transitions

Is it possible to laminate my entire 2nd floor in one big piece? It consists of 2 medium sized rooms connected by a 12' hallway. I'm trying to plan it out but it seems really tricky!

Otherwise, I'll do each room separately and use a transition between the doorway and hallway. I'd rather not do that. Any ideas?

It's possible but I wouldn't recommend it. Most laminate companies want a transition very 30' max. If you are going through doorway especially you are getting into a tricky situation. Laminate floors are designed to float. They move with changes in environmental variables. It's a lot easier for them to do this effectively on a room by room basis. Trying to do it all in one big shot forces the floor to move all at once with stress at the smaller junctions.
