Big plus - busses will be less crowded.
Not so great, they will come a little less often.

You know your child - is a crowd or waiting a longer time more likley to be upsetting? Most kids would do better if not so cramped and crowded, I think.



We just got back from being there 8/1-8/8. We requested and got a room on an upper floor in Calypso NOT facing the pool. (Less noise, but still nice and close to pool and to the food court). The kids' area with the couch and chair/ottoman beds was pretty tight for space. My kids are 17, 13 and 11. Probably better with wee ones. :-)

If the 17yo does not go next time, we are definitely not staying at All Star. Don't get me wrong, this room, with the kitchenette, and at the price we got, worked out great. But if I dont need the bed space, I don't want to stay at the budget place again. Too big, food court was not near as nice as at POR, and it was too far away from everything.

This may be a possibility for our trip in October there is only 4 of us but the extra room would be great for naps. Can I get free dining with a suite? It is still cheaper than a deluxe.

Yes you can! We had it this year until we switched to the room discount instead.

Yes! We are getting free dining with the family suite. We love it, and we are only 4 (2 adults, 2 kids).

Are you just doing the counter service the comes with it? Or do you up grade to the regular plan? I'm not sure on this. We at least want to eat once at CP but I could always pay for that out of Pocket. My dh has to have his bisquits and gravy at least once.

We are doing the family suites with free dining and it is the regular plan (ie. 1 TS, 1 QS and 1 Snack. After I read your post I checked on this with an agent. Are you sure you are only getting counter service meals with your dining?

haven't been able to find this answer...we're thinking about bounceback free dining for next year, but not sure about who would be going with us this time. A suite might be the way to go for us - wouldn't mind all the extra room if it's just us for part of the week. Here's the question, though...do you have to fold up the beds or do the maids do that as part of making up the rooms every day? Or do you just fold them up to get them out of the way?

Thanks for the help. If I booked it under our pin code we will get the regular dining. If they have a room. We are still not sure what we are doing. Now my step son is going and he is 18.

Thanks everyone we booked the All Star Music suite. My step son is now going. He is 18 so we had to add another adult. It was to expensive for 2 rooms at CBR. I have never stayed at a value I hope we enjoy it. We also got the FD but the reg plan. I booked with a pin so we were able to keep our sit down meal. I know my kids will miss the slide but I think the icons will make up for it.

I found it easier to fold them out to get them out of the way. The maids would unfold and tidy up the beds and then fold them back up again.

Can the suites connect to a standard room?

We have a suite booked, but are considering booking a standard room as well for more room. If we do this, are there some suites that can connect to regular rooms? If that's not possible, can they at least be adjoining, quite close together??

Thanks for the help!

Andi

There aren't any suites that connect to regular rooms. When we stayed in a suite our friends joined us several days later and they were about 2 or 3 doors down from us in a regular room.

best area to request for suite

What are the best areas to request for the family suites? I know that they are all close to melody hall but we would like to be close to the food court and bus stop. Thanks!!
