I am thinking if you move out the easy chair that is in the master area you may be able to put the ottoman foldout there.
Well first of all, Have A Great Trip! Thank you in advance for the help, my main reason for asking about putting the ottoman in there is so our daughter can go to bed in there before my parents who will be sleeping in the master go to bed.
I wish I was you going in three days. have fun!

Linda - I am new to the boards, but I just wanted to wish you a fabulous trip! Thank you so much for all of the info you have provided on the family suites! We have booked one for the first week in February and I am so looking forward to your review of it. Your thoughts on why the All Stars are perfect for what you want out of Disney echo my view exactly. This thread has made me feel really good about our decision to stay at the ASMu. Do let us know about the capability of moving the ottoman to the master, because my family, like Danny's would really love to have that option.

Have a truly magical trip!

Hi MARY-IN-OH, DannyDisneyFreak, and Flo,

Thank you so much for all of your kind wishes.

I will be sure to post a review of the Suites when I return. I can't wait to see them...."live and in person"....

DannyDisneyFreak, and Flo, I have plans for DH and I to check out the capability of moving the ottoman to the master. Here's hoping I do not get too excited just being there that I completely forget.

I am over 50 now and thing I miss the most about my younger years is my memory!


I can't wait to post my first All Star Family Suite review.

We are taking a road trip so look for it about September 26th or so.

See ya.

Hi Linda,

Thank you for all the great information! Have a great trip! When you report will you let us know how big the in room safes are? Specifically, could we store any of our electronic (nintendo) stuff in them?

Thanks!
Paula

We'll be there in December, so I am anxious to read any reviews. We have a family suite and a regular room booked. I hope we can get the 2 rooms close to each other.

Well, minnie61650 is nine days into her trip, sitting here at home I wish I was there too but I can't wait for her report when she returns. I know she was crazy about the AS suites before I bet she will have lots to share when she gets back.

Question ASMu Suites & Awesome Thead

First of all let me say that this thread has been AWESOME for info. about the suites. I am booked in for the school vacation week in April at the ASMu Suites. Little worried about the crowding at that time, but nonetheless...that's the best time for us to go. Thank you, thank you for the pictures, thank you for the comments and thank you all around. I think these suites are the best option for me and my family. Myself, DH, DD (8) and DD (2). My 2 year old can nap in one room and my 8 year old can rest, grab a snack and plan her next thrill ride in the other room. Anyway, my one quick question is oddly enough about the mini-refrigerator. Is there a freezer section? Or is it more like a "dorm room" frig? Thanks.

Cathy

Call WDW reservations at 1-877-939-3732, this is the toll free number and ask about the All-star Music Family Suites.

WDW is not going to shuttle you anywhere off property especially to Universal. What hotel are you staying at? Are you staying at a WDW resort?

I just returned from a fabulous stay at All Star Music.
Wow! Mid September is a great time to experience Disney. Most rides were walk ons and even Soarin was only a 10 minute wait!

All Star Music is looking great. We stayed in Calypso building 10.

We stayed in room 0618 (for 8 nights) which is a HA room with a roll in shower.
It was just refurbished and had a totally new look.

It was decorated with the same decor as the new suites and even had a privacy curtain between the bedroom area and the area by the sink!

We had reserved a Family Suite for our last 2 nights. When I reserved them in April I had requested a HA room and was told HA Family Suites would not be available until 2007 so I asked about a raised toilet seat and CRO told me that would not be a problem.
Turned out it was a problem. There are not any Family Suites with raised toilet seats yet so we opted to stay at the Suites just 1 night.

Let me tell you I loved the Suites and once they have HA Family Suites available I would book my whole stay there in the future!

We stayed in 0416 which is on the ground floor. Room 0418 which was next door was not a Suites so the Suites are not all grouped together.
The living area was the best. There was a small table with 2 blue modern looking chairs by the window area.

The chairs had a small amount of cushioning and curved backs and seemed more conformable (to me) than the old straight back chairs they had in the old All Star Music rooms. The table top was wood grain and there were silhouettes of Mickey all abound the edge in a darker wood color.



The living room area is very roomy when the furniture is the closed position.

When you first enter the room you get a feeling that you can take time to relax and spread out in these rooms. The cramped feeling is not there. there is a sofa, chair and ottoman which fold out into beds. There are two small end tables and soft foot stool for the sofa.



The TV was a 27 inch flat screen and the cabinet had three drawers under the TV area. There were two shelves next to the TV and a cabinet door which opened to reveal 2 more shelves.



I opened up the chair bed and it was very conformable to lay down on. The back of the chair actually rests on the floor supporting the chair bed when it is folded out into the bed. I took a picture and if it turns out I will post it. It was pretty amazing the way they designed the pull out furniture!
The frame of the bed is metal so when I went to get of the chair bed I did feel the metal bars at the edge of the bed.



I tried to get the ottoman into the master bedroom area but I am sorry to say the ottoman is just too wide and will not fit through the door jam.

The sink and closet areas in the suites also have privacy curtains.
The sink areas have 2 shelf cubbies under them for storage and a Kleenex tissue area under them. There are wall mounted hair dryers with the built in amber night lights on the walls by the sinks.




Each dressing area has a privacy curtain, closet area, iron, ironing board and wall safe. The wall safes are the standard size which will hold a wallet a cell phone a small DVD player, a personal CD player, or a few CDs but it is not large enough for a lap top or anything that is more than a couple of inches wide.

Remember the Suites have 2 bathrooms, 2 dressing areas with privacy curtains, 2 safes, 2 hairdryers, 2 closets, 2 TVs, 2 separate sleeping, areas and 2 TVs.

The kitchenette has a lot storage area also.
There was an ice bucket with 6 plastic cups on the countor and a coffeepot with 6 of the throw away foam hot cups.
There were 6 paper plates, 6 paper bowls, Paper towels and a silverware tray on an upper shelf.
The silverware container had 6 sets of plastic ware and a can opener in it.




The kitchenette has a nice size microwave, and the fridge is the larger under the counter dorm fridge. The fridge has small freezer on the top which was big enough to freeze my 3 small ice pacs for my meds. The area for the freezer is not very high. You might be able to put a couple of small water bottles in it to freeze them but a larger water bottle would not be able to fit in the freezer area.



The Master room was nice size and it was nice to have a desk area with a mirror over it so it also sure as a make up area if one chose to it as such.
The TV cabinet had 3 nice size storage drawers. The easy chair next to the bed was nice addition. I enjoyed being able to sit there instead of using a table chair or bed to sit.

The queen size bed was conformable. The AC at newly refurbished has been updated to Cental air style instead of the old under the window style. It worked fine while we were there. Our room was very quiet.





The Master area had enough room for a twin size aero bed if you placed the bed with one end by the window and had it running between the desk and the foot of bed. (You would need to move the desk chair out of the way. )The aero bed would block the access of the Queen size bed from the far side, however. The bed was a Queen.



There were only a few things in our Suite that were different from those pictured on the DIS resorts homepage.

1) The headboard was smaller than the one pictured here taken from the DIS resorts homepage.

2) The tile on the kitchen floor and bathroom floor was tan and navy blue instead of the tan and white in the pictured room.

3) Also the far wall in the living area when you enter room was painted blue instead of the tan color the rest of the room was room is painted.

4) Ironing boards and iron were in each closet area.

Our Digital camera is not working so I took some photos on a disposable one.
I will post a fewof them in couple days if they turn out. Meanwhile I will post a few of the photos from the DIS Homepage to add to my descriptions.

Mousekeeping was great.

Mousekeeping left plenty of towels and we were pleasantly surprised by a pair of love bird towel animals when we returned to our room on evening midway through our stay!

The Calypso pool was never crowded even though the Fantasia pool at Movies was closed during the time we stayed Music.

We never waited more than 5-10 minutes for bus and only shared buses on the way back from some of the parks. Music always had its own bus back from MK.

Any questions? Just ask and I will try to answer them.

Thanks for the update! I hope your trip was magical. I have been in sep. before and did enjoy it also. So where was your room located? 0416, is that building 10, 3rd floor, room 16? Did you know if any of the suites are on the main floor of building 1 or 10 facing the pool? Well, thanks, can't wait to see your personal pics.

Thanks DannyDisneyFreak. We had an awesome time at Disney!

The Suite we were in was on the backside of the ground floor of Calypso building #10 facing the playground.

The ground floor of builing #10 has the 400 numbers, the 2ed floor has the 500 number and the third floor has the 600 numbers.

Yes, there were some Suites located on the ground floor of both buildings #1 and #10 that faced the main Pool.

Linda,

Thanks for the great review. We are staying there in the Suites in Jan. It is myself, my wife, two daughtes (3 and 6) and Grandma. The suite seems like a perfect size for us. One question, how was the fold out couch? Grandma (my mom) is planning on sleeping on it. Did you get a chance to lay down on it? Just wondering. I just want to be sure that everyone is comfortable. My kids could sleep on a rock if they are tired enough so, I am sure the smaller fold outs will be fine for them..

Also, did Disney supply coffee in the rooms for the coffee maker? Thanks again for all the great info..

Patrick
