Sorry, I don't know if they sell it there or not. I was just sharing my experience, didn't want to take the chance so we ordered it from Garden Grocer. Here's the resort's phone number 407-939-6000, your best bet is probably to call them and ask.

emsmith, have you looked at Shades of Green?? It is beautiful and depending on your rank i guess (not sure how it really works, )we stayed with friends who were military! so you will have to check out the site! you get early entry and the benefits of Disney. we walked to Polly each morning and hopped on the monorail! it is worth checking it out!

Thanks for the number, I called and a very pleasant cm said they do not carry it but recommended Turner drugs. She even offered to connect me. May use them or find an alternative. Garden Grocer has a 40.00 dollar minimum and I only need the distilled water. Thanks everyone for their help.

I have a cpap machine too , I usually pack a couple of small bottles of distilled water in my suitcase thats enought to fill the machine about 3 times and that does me about a week or until I can find a wallgreens or similar when I get there. This will be my first time flying but Im still putting a bottle of water in my suitcase inside some ziplock baggies incase it bursts.

sigh..... 6th May is sooo long away....Im trying to think of disney things to do meantime to pass the time. BTW got a great deal with the springback offer. Music resort was cheaper than Movies and Pop, why do you think that is??? We didnt just pick it for the price too, we have done pop and movies and wated to try Music...imagine when I logged on and it was the best deal!!! This vacation is on such a tight budget this year...we had to cut the week down to 5 nights ( 4 days in the parks) but we figured 4 nights are better than none. Roll on May.....

I'm not brave enough to pack bottles of water in my luggage. Maybe the airport will have it. Problem is our plane doesn't land until 10:10 p.m. I'll bet many airport stores will be closed. Is Turner Drugs on Disney property?

All the resorts should have the distilled water for sale but they put it in the back for those who need it for medical use. I would call the resort and ask for a manager in the store or food court.

Wooooo - I love this thread!!!

I've been to Disney World once (May 2011), and as we were a family of 6, we needed the family room. We stayed in 9558 Jazz Inn and LOVED it. I love the theming of the resort, I love how fun it is without being over the top.
We were on the first floor and the noise wasn't something we noticed at all. It was quick enough to get to the shop, food hall and bus stops. When the beds are folded out it is a bit of a squeeze, but it's not a problem. Having the two bathroom/showers/baths is excellent when you have a few children!

Yes it's a bit basic, but I'm fine with that. We spent most of our time in the parks anyway. My children really wanted to play in the pool more and watch movies in the evening, but I wanted fireworks! So actually there was plenty at ASMu for them, they just didn't get the chance to do it.

We never found the buses to be an issue. Sometimes it was shared with the other All Stars and other times not. As ASMu is in the middle it works out quite well and quick anyway.

We'll be going back to WDW next year and are going to get there just before our youngest turns 2, so we're now a family of 7 going! I definitely want ASMu again. Before we booked I secretly wanted ASMo because I thought it looked better, but we had to go with where the family rooms were.
As all the AS resorts are close together, we took a walk around the Movies one. Our children enjoyed looking at the characters and having their photos taken in RV (the car from Toy Story), etc, but really it's not much different.

I have a question - does anyone know if all the family rooms are on the pool side? This is the side I would prefer, so we can check on our bigger kids if they go out to swim.

we have been to Disney almost 30 times I think...hahaha..but this will be our first at All Star Music..

We originally had reservations at All Star Movies and then the AP rates came out...we save quite a bit by switching to Music..

Love your posts here and thank you for keeping it going..we have always loved Movies and some of the Moderates.

We got a preferred room and hopefully get the first floor as requested...I know a request is just that...So fingers crossed anyways..I would love to walk out of our room and see the pool...just hoping anyways..

Also wonder how the food court menus ..if they are as listed on the dining site...or are there more of the "wrong" foods gone too...

thanks again

The most recent prices and selection would probably be here. I was actually planning on trying to put together some sort of list from that tonight. Josh never responded to my email so I didn't want to post his photos without permission.

ETA: I updated the dining options post with the station prices. I'll work on getting some ala cart choices up soon.

Hi,
Are there 3 separate beds in the living room at the family suites? We have 3 kids who cannot share beds.

Thank you!

Deciding between Jazz & Calypso. I like Calypso but I would like a quieter room. (we get up early & get out early).

We just got back from staying in a family suite and we were not on the pool side. We actually preferred that due to the quiteness but our kids are too young to be in the pool unsupervised.
