I would do this now, because I think that the discount expires on 12/15, which is tomorrow. I was able to apply the discount to our package with the family suite. Even if there are suites available for your dates, there is still a chance that the discounts are sold out for the particular type of room, but it is worth a try!

Have a great trip!
I tried calling and they told me the suite isn't available for the discount!? How many are in your party?

There are 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 children. I doubt that the number in one's party makes a difference.

The discount is for a package, and there is a three night minimum (according to http://www.wdwinfo.com/disneypackages.htm#current). I noticed in your siggy that you are staying at BWV, too, so maybe you aren't staying at the Family Suites for more than one or two nights?

The other factor is the number of suites that can get discounted. According to this thread, there are 192 suites (if I did the math correctly). Hypothetically, if only 10 percent can use this discount, then only 19 rooms can have a discount. If all 19 of those discounts are taken, then the discount is sold out even if there are rooms still available. Does that make sense? If you call again to apply the code, I would ask the CM to clarify if the discount is sold out or not available for the rooms (I did this when I was trying to apply the Disney Visa discount).

Have a great trip!

I had called before when these codes originally came out and they told me they couldn't be applied to the suites but I called again yesterday because it can't hurt. The amount of people in your party does matter as we have 5 in ours. if there are 4 people it could be considered the same as one regular room but 5 makes it not workable for the code. At least this cast member explained it to me! Oh well. It was worth a shot! Thanks for the info anyway!

That is strange about the number of people in your party affecting the code availability...it is too bad that the code didn't work for you. It just makes it seem like they have some convoluted equation for whether or not a code will work. It sure keeps us guessing!

Have a great trip!

I agree with that! I love that you can get an entirely different answer from each cast member! LOL. It would have been nice to save the $ but it's already paid for so what ever!!! LOL.

I'm sorry if this is a duplicate question but since we've never been to ASMu I'm wondering if we should request Jazz or Calypso? We're a family of 5 and looking at the map it looks like both are close to the foodcourt and pool. Calypso being the closest - is it loud staying by the pool? Having never stayed there its difficult to determine distance, etc. When we stayed at the Poly I was surprised at how compact the resort was. Prior to our trip & looking at the map I thought the Poly was quite spread out but once we were there I thought the opposite.

Thanks for any info.

We stayed in Calypso 10, and faced the pool. We never heard a thing. We were close to the end where the food court was. It was a great location. You really can't go wrong because it isn't that much further to Jazz either. IMO

Pack N Play at AsMu Suites

Hi everyone!

Can anyone tell me if you can request Pack N Play's or do we have to bring our own? Also, where do you set them up in the rooms? Our DDs (8 and 6) will be using 2 of the pullouts (hopefully the chair and ottoman) but DS1 will be in the PnP. Are the bathrooms big enough to put one in? What about the closet area?

Thanks!
Diana

I would move the chair in the bedroom, the bathroom area might be big enough. But I wouldn't put one in there. I think you can request one you should call and see.

Our family is considering staying at the suites at ASMu. I've seen the pics and have done some research. We're a family of 5 so the extra space would be nice, kitchenette great for snacks and cleaning sippy cups, etc. Of course the 2 tvs and 2 bathrooms would be awesome. Although our kids are young and don't spend a lot of time in the bathroom, DH could have his own!

I do have a few questions for those that have stayed in the suites. Are the sleeper chairs and ottoman comfortable? We have DS9, DD6 & DD3 (at time of travel) who will be turning 4 on our vacation if we go in 2009. Silly question - but I love the beauty of Florida - the flowers and landscaping. How are the grounds at ASMu - the colors of the buildings are quite loud - is there any landscaping? I know not to expect the Poly but some flowers and trees are nice. The buses are a concern as they are at every disney resort. Looks like there is only one bus stop - does it get real crowded? According to the ASMu map - the suites are close to the foodcourt & bus stop so I guess theres no building request for that needed. It looks like there is parking around the buildings so if we rented a car our car would be fairly close by?

I would appreciate any thoughts & info about the suites. They're a great option for our family - I wish it was less bright but perhaps thats part of the feel & fun of the resort. Thanks for any info.

We are also looking into renting a vacation home off site as well but would prefer to stay in the disney magic.

Yes, you can request a Pack N Play, so you do not have to bring your own. They can put the request on your reservation, so request the crib when you make the reservation or call and add the request if you already have the reservation.

(I can't help on the where to put it part because I haven't been yet. We are going in January, and I might request a Pack N Play for DD3 who isn't out of a crib. I can let you know after that if you are going after January!)

Have a great trip!

HI... We are booked in the Family Suites in March. I have read in the thread that the beds are queen size...but on the Disney Resorts page it says the beds a king??? Does anyone know which is true...I would be GREAT if they were king but queen is better than the standard double at the other value resorts!!!
