View Full Version : Room choices for family of 5

04-01-2006, 07:04 AM
Hi all,

Just received the email about the free dine when you stay package coming out. Trouble is, we are a family of 5, we usually use our DVC points to stay at a DVC resort, which we fit in perfectly. But this free dining thing is very tempting to sneak in an unplanned trip this year.

So if we were to book at another Disney resort, where do families of 5 stay? What have others done?

We stayed in the FW cabins a while back, does anyone know if they include those in the free dining package?

Thank you!!!

Yacht Club
Grand Floridian
Animal Kingdom Lodge (deluxe savannah view room)
Wilderness Lodge (deluxe room/suite)

another choice would be connecting rooms at any of the resorts

New Family Suites at All Star Music Resort

Several rooms at Disney’s All-Star Music Resort are getting an extreme makeover. They are being restructured to house the new Disney’s All-Star Resort Family Suites, set to open June 4, 2006.

The new family suites will offer an affordable and convenient option for larger families with the amenities of a studio apartment.

Guests will enjoy the whimsical music-themed details, along with modest rates averaging $204, based on season. Most rooms sleep a family of six. There is a limited amount of rooms available.

Families can be together in the suite while enjoying separate sleeping areas with added privacy. Having two bathrooms will not only save time, but makes getting ready easier for the whole family. Plus, extra amenities like a microwave enable guests to prepare warm snacks and meals. With the extra room, guests can relax and recount the memories of the day before falling off to a goodnight’s sleep.

52 Family Suites located in the Jazz Inn building
(192 suites upon completion located in Calypso and Jazz Inn buildings)

-Sleep up to 6 (plus one child under age 3 in a Pak-n-Play crib)
-Studio amenities and separate sleeping areas giving more privacy than a standard room.
-Queen bed, full-size pullout sofa, convertible ottoman & chair sleepers (4 separate sleepers)
-Private master bedroom and family room have 27” flat CRT TV and high speed internet access.
