I think you will be happy. They look quite nice and are very new. Wish they would let you book one with free dining because I would like to give one a try.

If you had said you were strictly DVC or deluxe suite kind of people, it might be more of a shock, but since you like mods as well, I don't think you will notice a lot of difference between a mod and the family suites. The biggest difference will be that the value resorts don't have a TS restaurant and the luggage service can be more time consuming than at a moderate. Also, there isn't a slide at the pool, like there would be at a mod.
The suites themselves are very nice. The kids will love sleeping in the living room area and you will enjoy the privacy of the separate bedroom. The kitchenette is great for breakfast on the run or late night snacks. Having two bathrooms is a big help when getting ready in the morning. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

My cousin stayed there with her DH and 3 teenage boys and loved the place. She felt having the 2 bathrooms and extra space made up for not being in a deluxe with everyone crammed in the room. I think you will be happy. I am sure someone here has pics for you.
