another question about the kitchen supplies - I know they give you paper plates, cups, plastic utensils, etc. Do they also give you real diningware such as bowls for cereal and mugs for tea? 1 more month and we'll be there - our first family trip to WDW! TIA!

Only paper products.

I'm glad I found out that it won't fit gallon jugs, but you think half gallon will fit?
We were there earlier this month. A full gallon of milk fit fine for us without removing shelves. We still had plenty of space for bottled water, fruit, deli meat and stuff.

They are just paper products, but there are paper bowls (they are like the ones that you will see in the food court and we used them for cereal, yogurt, etc.) and two types of cups - styrofoam for hot drinks and paper cups for cold drinks.

There are also paper towels (handy for napkins).

Enjoy!

I read somewhere (probably 40 pages ago on this thread) that the bowls they give you are pretty tiny. If you want something more durable/sizable you may want to stuff a few in your luggage.

All I can say is THANK YOU!!!! I have been debating a trip in either August or December and my 13 year old DD wants to stay in a Deluxe Resort. As previously stated, she doesn't pay the bills After reading through this amazing thread, I think we just might be booking ASMu. Now I just have to hope for Free Dining and we're in!

Thanks again for all of the great information and awesome photos everyone shared.

Just booked our next WDW trip in December 2011 at an ASMU Family suite
We stayed at Pop in 2 connecting rooms last December and really liked it but we want to try the Family suite this time. With the PIN offer, it was a great deal

Can't wait! I'm so excited

I really like the layout of the family suites and I think this is a great option for families whether you have one child or four (like me)! I hear often that the hotel rooms are just a place to sleep and that you are in the parks most of the day; but for me if I am going to be staying somewhere for a week I need a separate living room type set up with a sofa to sit on for the hours that we will not be in the parks. Even though the kids will sleep on the pull out beds in the living room at night, if we come back to the suite for an afternoon break we can put our 2 yr old down for a nap in the separate bedroom and still have the living room to hang out in. I don't think the family suites are a bad price either. A lot of people say it is cheaper just to get two standard value rooms, but when you add on the cost to get a room in a preferred building location and the daily cost to rent a mini fridge, that is basically the same price as the family suite. I also don't want to take the chance of not getting connecting rooms since they aren't guaranteed Heaven knows that having a coffeemaker in the family suite (which you don't get in the value resort rooms) to make my morning coffee is the deal breaker for me

Is there a toaster in the room? I always assumed there was, but then i was looking at pictures and didn't see one. I'm hoping so for toast & bagels in the morning.

No toaster-you can use the one in the food court but I just brought a cheap one (under $10) and left it there when I left.

I always travel with my Target toaster and hot water pot. $8.88 each. The toaster had a nice attachment for egg poacher.

Yes, there are elevators in every building. We love the ASMU suites! Way better than 2 regular rooms. Love the close proximity to food court, buses, front desk, pools, etc. The room was super nice. Loved having the kitchen. The rooms are set up so nicely! Can't wait to stay there again.
