Do you know if you can request it or is it just given to someone as a surprise?
Free upgrades are usually a surprise.

I don't think it would hurt if they politely ask at check in.

Have fun at WDW!

We are traveling the 16th-22nd of December! Our family has a Family Suite booked, while the other family we are traveling with, has two Preferred rooms. We did link our ressies as we are part of a Grand Gathering, but is it possible to have rooms located on the same floor, in the same building? I'm not sure on the standard/preferred room ratio to suites. Help is appreciated. Thanks!

I was told by a CM that with Grand Gatherings they book your rooms as close together as possible. I imagine that they can put both preferred rooms together.

You should call the Grand Gathering's number and ask a CM about the rooms.

Hope this helps.

All Star Music is the only resort that has the family suites, at least that I am aware of.

Wow. You have done a great job with this thread.

I was wondering if you knew weather or not you can book the family suites with the free dining offer. We are planning a trip for Sept 2010 and hope they will offer the free dining again.

The suites look fantastic

We were able to get FD with the suite this year. I decided to change my travel plans to late Oct with the 4 for 3 PIN I received for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, you cannot get the suite with the 4 for 3 PIN.

We got a pin for children 3-9 stay, play, and eat for free with the purchase of an adult stay, play and dine. We were able to use this pin for the family suites.

thanks thinking about a high school graduation trip for DD in May 2011 with 3 friends. However they will all be considered adults by Disney standards.

Were the Family Suites offered during the 4/3 special this past March? We stayed at CBR in March and plan to go again next year. We were going to stay at CBR again but my sister-in-law and niece want to go with us and the value resorts are more affordable for them. So I am curious if specials ever apply to the family suites. Thanks!

We just booked for 12/13 to 12/19 on free dining. This will be my second stay onsite. Last was in 2000 for my 30th birthday, this trip will be my 39th birthday (on the 18th). I've never stayed onsite with a toddler and have never taken advantage of free dining. This should be fun.

We were just in the World in January on a larger family trip and stayed offsite so we had a car which was a huge convenience with a two year old. My husband thinks that the shuttle busses will be great, I'm worried about getting to and from the parks twice a day with the baby. Does anyone know if, given the historically low crowd levels for that week, how the shuttles may be?
