Yes it is there have been several post saying so. However you can still ask for connecting rooms.

I think I read on ALLEARS (not sure though) that they will eventually be putting these family suites in all of the value resorts. Does anyone have any info on this and know when they might be completed? We're planning a Dec 2009 trip...I figure that gives us almost three years for more to be built!

One more question (well, probably the first of many!)...I read on the DIS somewhere a post from someone whose children loved the (and I'm not sure what the exact word of these are) water jets that come up from the ground that the children can run through and get wet? I assume they are by a pool but was just wondering if these are found at all the ALL STARS resorts, and if just certain ones, which ones? We are leaning toward the Family Suites and our DD will be 4. Sounds like these water jet things might be fun for all of us on a hot day

There is something like this at Ariel's grotto in Magic Kingdom. Other than that, there was nothing like that at the All Star Music resort. The one at the Grotto is exactly as you described. Our kids had fun with it....

I am so excited. We booked the suites for September 2007. We tried every date in October first and it was booked up.
I can't wait to stay in the suites again and be back in disney.

This is more of a ASMu resort question insteadd of the suites.

We've booked a preferred room at ASMu for 9/2-9/9 w/ free dining. Is Calypso the preferred location or is Jazz also included in that? We would love to be right at the pool. TIA

I was booked for AKL for our trip 5/31-6/3, but will all of the talk of construction noise, we may actually have to switch. Our son's are on the autistic spectrum and the noise would definitely be an issue. I know Linda has always highly recommended AS Music for my sons in previous posts, so I'm thinking of switchin our ressies. My question is, can we book the dining plan with the suites?

Thanks everyone!

yes, you can book the dining plan with the suites-unfortunately no free dining though

paper1225 Is correct you can pay for DDP.

I am sorry to hear about your dilemma with AKL and construction noise.

What a bummer!

I do not know what to say.


AKL is usually known to be a quiet resort and under ordinary conditions would be an excellent choice.


The Family Suites are also very quiet but I am not sure any Suites would be available for your dates. They fill up far in advance.

The Swan/Dolphin hotels were running a $199 special for the end of May.

I would highly recommend them but I want you to know that you can't get the DDP when you stay at S/D.


I really do not have much more advice.

Good Luck with your decision and....

Have fun at Disney!
