Thank you for clarifying that. We bought the plan through a travel agent here in Israel, and it would be a rude awakening to find out we'd paid for something we can't really have!

Hi Jody,

We will be in the suites next week too. We arrive the 13th and leave on the 17th and have the dining plan as well.

Beth

Talking

Beth! Will you be doing the Lime Green thing? If so maybe we'll be able to say hello! I usually have a lime green ribbon on my purse strap, and I'm going to try to force SO to put one on his camera strap...

And did you request any particular building or location? I was going to do that tomorrow (Calypso ground floor) but I keep second guessing whether that is even the best and whether it matters... Just another thing to obsess about in my planning!

We stayed there in October and I would recommend the second floor. There is less foot traffic in front of your door on the second floor than the first floor. Just something else to obsess over.

aaah...that does make sense! thanks! I was thinking that not getting a pool facing room would help with that as well. Well, today's the day I call ASMu with my requests... so right now that's Second Floor Calypso parking-lot facing... anybody else have a comment that might help (a little more obsessing never hurt!)

Not to confuse you more : but we faced the pool and it was a non issue. There is vegetation between the rooms and the pool. We never heard any pool noise inside the room. Hope I haven't made things worse. Enjoy your trip! We were in Building 10, if that helps.

Lol!!

At myself! Thank you so much for your comments - I've decided to let the room location go as an issue altogether and concentrate my obsession on other things (there are plenty believe me!). I am just going to trust that there really is no bad location for our suite to be in and just take whatever the ASMu hands us. There! Sigh of relief... now off to obsess about ADR's...

Here the view of Calypso #10 building just outside the rooms facing the pool.

Please excuse the quality of the photos I was finishing up the photos left on an old disposable camera.







Have fun at Disney!

Hi Jody,
If its not to late, have a safe trip!!! How did the room location request go? Since we have more then one room I decided not to sweat that part of the trip and just roll with the punches.

I have been warned that this is a RELAXING trip and I am not allowed to obsess or over plan or do any schedules.....I was however allowed to make advance dining plans....lol I guess they have their priorities. But they just don't get my obsessive DIS planning....MEN.

I plan on sneaking a few green tags onto my purse, and have considered bringing my DIS magnet from our cruise. If it won't work on the door, I can put it in my window at worst.

I can not wait to stay here. We stayed at the Pop in Aug 06. The resort was nice, but the room was a bit too small for us. We are planning another trip in September or December (still deciding). This suite will make our stay much more pleasurable.

Thanks for all of this great info! We are staying here Feb. 3-10 and are so excited!

Does anyone know what size coffeepot is in the room? Do they take standard filters? DH and I have to get our coffee fix in the morning

We stayed in the Suites over Thanksgiving. I brought my own coffee because Disney's is not too good. They do however have the coffee packs in the rooms. The pot is a small four cup pot. I brought regular 8 cup filters with me because that's what I use at home. It worked fine. Enjoy your stay.

I'm sorry if this has been covered already on this thread. We just added a third child to our family and I don't have time to read every page right now. We were wondering if these suites were part of the free dining package last year?

I haven't read through the whole post so please bear with me if this has been asked before. I am traveling with my twin GDs the last part of August and I am wondering if we can get the suites being only 3 people. I chose this time because of less visitors, it is just before school for the girls and on the chance of free dining again. Can I get a suite that is on the second floor and close to the front desk, bus stop and food court? I am thinking that they will be tired and being as I won't be able to carry both on our return from the parks!!! Thanks for your help!!!
