Smile Asm fam suites

We are staying at the ASM family suites in January 2011 and just wondered if people usually bring snacks or breakfast foods to eat while there? What do you bring?? We have a 3 hour flight..so it has to be packable! thanks

Sure! You can pack granola bars, etc. or ship to your resort (we used UPS Ground). You can also use a grocery delivery service, wegoshop.com or gardengrocer.com, and get some perishables, like milk and fruit.

We liked having breakfast in the room - saves time and money!

I have done both www.gardengrocer.com and used www.minimus.biz Minimus does all sorts of travel size and single serving size items. They do personal care products and have a huge selection of cereal in bowls. They have free shipping for orders over $20 so I have it shipped right to the resort. They are on the west coast so I order 2 weeks before my trip to be sure it is there when I arrive.

I followed this thread up until my last trip at the end of Sept. We had 5 people, basically 2 families in the suite. We loved it! My friend has fibromyalgia and I had planned on letting her sleep where ever she felt best. First night she started on the pull out couch and stayed there for the whole trip. She said it was comfortable and didn't add to her pain.

My DD (13 and 5' 7") slept on the ottoman one night and said it was comfortable also.

The privacy curtains were great by the bathrooms, since there was also a 13 year old boy there.

Overall, we loved them! Only down side was the one day I forgot to leave a tip and a note for mousekeeping, they "punished" us. We had towels left on the floor, no restocking of shampoo, soap, or coffee! I went to front desk and they ordered them for us, but they never showed up either. Thank goodness for my refillable cup...I need my coffee, especially when it is 7am!

We had planned on staying at POR, since it was a little bit cheaper, but the suite was SO much better.

The food court was just OK. We had a rental car and actually drove over to POP to eat one night. My friends couldn't believe how many choices for food they had over there.

I'm debating between a family suite at AsMu or a room at CBR. I want to stay at both for different reasons. Can't wait until next October to go back!

I'm so excited to find out about the family suites! Can't wait to book it for our May '11 vacation!

Question about tipping Mousekeeping. What is the standard tip? I'm pretty much a vacation newbie so I haven't come across this much!

The Family Suites can sleep 6 - two in the bedroom and four in the living area (fold out sofa for two, fold out chair for one, and fold out ottoman for one).

Our group of three families were in DW last week, two families had two family suites and me and my husband had a regular room down the hall. They worked out so well-the kitchen is wonderful for eating breakfast in, the two full baths are great and we were all in the Calypso Building which was so nice and close to bus stop, food court, lobby, etc. We were all very pleased and would highly recommend. AsMu is a large resort and with little ones it was nice to be so close!
