One reason for considering the family suite is because of the kitchenette. I understand that with connecting rooms, you don't have the option of getting a coffee pot or microwave, right?

I was going to suggest 2 rooms at a value also. I don't think they will let you do 2 under 3's in the room but I suppose you could call and ask. You could use the microwave in the food court and bring a small 4 cup coffee pot with you. I have one that have stainless steel carafe instead of glass.

I am going to call and ask... if we can't get 2 under 3's in one family suite, then we'll do 2 rooms. Anyone know if we can we bring our own small microwave?

We figured dh, dd2.5 & me in bedroom (either in bed w/us or in a crib); dd16, ds18 & his baby (she sleeps w/him most of the time anyway) on sofa bed; and dd8 & dd7 on chair & ottoman. Does this sound doable? I've seen the pics and the rooms look big enough, we don't plan to spend much time there anyway. Any advice would be well appreciated!
Thanks!
I am not sure, but I think they have a limit of 6 in the Family Suites. Your best bet is to call and ask.

Yes some do. The one we had in October opened up to the pool.

Ok, I called and the CM said we could only have one under 3 in addition to the other 6. So, we're going to probably get two rooms at POP.

okay, so I'm pretty convinced. . .I'd like to book a family suite at ASmusic for January 2008 (1st 2 wks.)

Is it to soon to do this? If so, when is soonest I can do so?

I tried to wade through all the comments but may have missed something. . .can I get AAA discount or annual pass discount? any other discounts to be aware of?

do booking/ reservations seem to have all the details down by now?

My family has 6 DH, me, DS 15, DD12, DS 4, and DD2 by then. . .

any thoughts or opinions?

We booked our trip about a year in advance, I would say to do it. It would pretty much guarantee you a fam suite. When we were there two weeks ago, in our suite was me, my wife, 2 kids (6 & 3) and my mom. Plenty of room. Right next door to us was my bro in law and sis in law along with their 4 kids (ages 13, 10, 9, & 7) We all really liked the suites very roomy, two bathrooms is very nice, and we ate nearly every breakfast in the room (cereal, donuts, milk, juice etc) can all be stored and served very nicely in the kitchenette. Two bathrooms was also great to have. This was our first trip to Disney and I would definitely stay in a family suite again. We had no problems with booking the suite and they knew exactly what they were. We booked before they had even opened them up. In fact, all in all, our trip was flawless. From the planes, to the hotel, food, bus servcie, etc.

I am not sure about a AAA discount or any discount for that matter, sorry I cant answer that question.

You can book now, and ensure that you have the suite. It only takes a one night deposit.

AAA rates for 2008 will be released probably in August of this year. When the rates are released, you can call back to see if the Suites are participating in that discount. Then when Passholder rates are released for that time period, (they were released on November 1st of 2006 for January 2007, to see if the Suites are participating in that discount.

So far, because of the limited availability, and the popularity of the suites, no discounts have yet been offered.

Looking for someone who stayed at the AllStar Suites AND Swan/Dolphin before...

Our first WDW family vacation was last year and we stayed at the Swan (1 room with a balcony) for 9 nights. WE LOVED IT and got a good rate. We would like a little more room to spread out if we go again this year for 7 nights and I thought about these family suites at the AllStar Music Resort.

I'm looking for someone who's stayed at both before. I know the beds at the Suites would NOT compare to the heavenly beds, but are the ASM suites' beds a problem? We have a tempurpedic at home and I can see my husband fussing if we get horrible beds at the ASM suites just to save $$. The swan location was fabulous, as were the pools.

I could get adjoining rooms at the Swan for $250 ($125 night rate) total and I don't know how much the ASM would be for the extra convenience of a kitchenette area.

Can anyone compare the two??? Should we just bring our ice chest and pop tarts again and get 2 rooms at the swan again this year?????

We are booked into the ASMu Suites in March (12-17th ). I was wondering if there is an actual door (that can be closed) seperating the queen bedroom from the rest of the suite? We have a very active 18 month old with really good ears.

We have never paid this much for a hotel before. We are priceline users through and through but with this being our first trip with our toddler, we thought we would break the bank and go all out.

Also wondering if there is a toaster in the food court and if so, are we allowed to use it if we aren't buying anything from the food court?

I am really looking forward to this trip. The information on this thread is incredible. Thanks to all that post.
