It was a queen. I did not feel that I was on top of DH. We are used to a king size bed.

What a great thread. Thanks for all the info.

One question: I know I read that you can't do the free Dining while staying here, but what about the DDP that you pay for? Would the family suites be included in that? Thanks for your info once again.

I'm pretty sure that you can pay for the dining plan if you are staying in the family suites. I know my DH and I talked about getting the dining plan, then decided against it.

Great photos of the room. We are considering staying in one of the suites in September 2007.

Congrats!

I am looking forward to the photos and report.

I hope you enjoy the Suites as much as DH and I did.

I am so excited for you.

What a wonderful surprise for your children.

Question for Linda, or anyone who has stayed at the suites...

My family will be staying here in Jan. Quick question. Were the suites supplied with Shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc.? Also do the suites have a hairdryer and iron? Maybe these have been answered before and I probably missed it. Thanks again for all the great information.

DS slept on the chair that folds out into a bed, and DD slept on the couch that folds out into a bed. They said that they were comfortable. I laid down on DD's bed one morning, and it was fine for me. No bar in the middle of your back.

We loved having separate bathrooms. The kids had one and we had the other. I really liked having the curtain for the dressing area. It gave a little privacy when you are trying to get dressed.

We loved the kitchenette. The refrigerator has a freezer section, but it never froze any of our water bottles. It just made them very cold. It did freeze my freezer packs by the time we left though.

Mousekeeping was wonderful. They kept us fully stocked with supplies. They even folded my children's clothes, that they had left on the floor, and put them neatly on the ottoman. The only thing was that they only took my mousekeeping tip one day. I put them in an envelope marked "Mousekeeping", but they must have been told not to take them.

We had two tv's, but only one remote. When I called the front desk, they sent us a new remote within thirty minutes.

We stayed in Calypso 10. It was a great location. We faced the pool, but never heard any pool noise. We were very close to the main building and the small parking lot, which was great for loading and unloading the car.

Sometimes we had to park in the main parking lot, but the walk wasn't bad. The only negative thing I would say is that they aren't done with the construction of all the Family Suites, and they are set up in the parking lot. It took up quite a number of the available parking spaces. We never had trouble finding a space. It just might be a long walk back to the building. Really not bad at all.

Also, the air conditioning worked really well! It was nice to come back to a cool room after being out in the heat all day, but it got sort of cold at night while sleeping. We remedied this by taping a washcloth over the vent, so it wouldn't blow on us at night.

I would recommend these suites to anyone. It was perfect for what we wanted, which was separate sleeping areas, and a kitchenette.

We were on the first floor of Jazz 2. We were the second to last room towards the parking lot. THe last room was not a family suite. I think there was 3 family suites in a row. My FIL was 3 rooms closer to the pool from us in a regular room.
twins? we're traveling w/3 year old twins and we are booked in a family suite..how was it??

Hi everyone. I got back from the All Star Music Suites on Friday night. I just wanted to add that both of our bathrooms had a privacy curtain. Our bathroom layout was a little different from the one posted above (dana1003). If anyone has any questions about our stay there I would be happy to answer any questions.

The space for a family of five was great. I would consider staying in the Suites again.
