ALL the family suites are located in the Calypso and Jazz buildings.

Our room had a brand new mattress and it looked as if the upholstery in the livingroom had been redone (I say this because it wasn't the same as in the online pictures)

The room was great for us. Loved having the two bathrooms and yes two flat screen tv's. If all 5 of us go again I wouldn't think twice about staying in a family suite.
When I read the above post, I googled pictures of the family suites and found some that show several changes - new upholstery for all the furniture, different chairs at the table, different paint scheme, etc. It doesn't look like the suites have gotten a total refurb - more like they've been freshened up (very nicely too). Does anyone know if all the family suites have received this treatment?

Thinking of switching here instead of Art of Animation. It'll save me about $100 if I do!

IMHO, Music is the best value resort. It seems less "busy" and is more relaxed. It has the best landscaping and the best pool. I cant say anything negative about it. We love it.

Our stay at ASMu is coming up in just over a week. It's our first value stay ever! I'm a little nervous about it, but excited!

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

We're considering 2 nights here in Feb. Is it too late to book for the 13-14?

I stayed at AoA in September (Little Mermaid section) and the whole resort was just so CRAZY busy. Granted, it could have been because that section just opened, but it was just too busy for me. I have never stayed at ASMu and am looking forward to trying it here

I want to try something new and the shower looked so fun in the Little Mermaid room but I could use the extra money for my flight. I'm betting it'll stay fairly busy for a while. Plus ASMu is supposed to be smaller and quieter! Now if only I could get off hold with Disney (an hour and counting) I could make the switch!

I think the front of this thread needs to be updated with resort info like others! (eta I'm working on it!)

The shower is great! But you will be walking quite a distance to get to the food court and back again. Sometimes we drove. LOL
