Question: Food Courts

We're thinking about trying the suites for Marathon Weekend. How far a trek is it between the different AS food courts if we wanted to try one of the others out ?

If you stay in Calypso 10 or Jazz 9, you are right next door to Movies, not far at all. Calypso 1 or Jazz 2 are across the lot from Sports, although I think that's a little farther.

We stayed in Calypso 10 and our parking lot was the Movies Mighty Ducks lot. They are all woven together.

Sharadoc... Thanks for the info. This will be our first stay at any of the Values, so I'm trying to do as much reconnaissance as possible !

You might regret this!
We are staying over Memorial Day Weekend and this is our first time to stay at the values. We are an early to rise bunch who will hit the parks all day but when we come back at night the boys like to swim. DM has knee problems so we would like something close to the pools and bus stops. Any suggestions? Also, any tips about the bus schedule? How long is travel time between the different parks and also to DTD?
Favorite foods in the food court?
TIA!

NO problem. I'm a DIS addict - sorry I didn't get back to you before now!

The family suites are only in Calypso or Jazz. Have you looked at a map of the resort? It's a really simple setup - Celebrity Hall with check-in, store, food court and arcade is at the "top" of the resort, the pools go down the middle, and the buildings are all around in a large "U" around both pools.

There are 10 buildings, so Calypso is at the top of the "U" on either side - Buildings 1 and 10. Then it's Jazz 2 and 9. After that each theme is in a pair around a courtyard or small central area. Each building is in the shape of a "T".

If you're staying in a suite, you'll be in Calypso or Jazz, so you're the closest to the main building. Calypso overlooks the main 3 Cabelleros Guitar Pool, and Jazz is closer to the Quiet Piano Pool. There's a kiddie pool in between them.

The parking lots surround the resort so depending on the location of your room, you either overlook the pool or the parking lot/street. We had a suite overlooking the Mighty Ducks parking lot and the street but it wasn't noisy. The buses don't come back there.

We didn't eat in the food court since we had the suite, we ate in our room a lot. We brought an electric frying pan to cook eggs, tuna melts and grilled cheese, sausage, and burgers. Our mousekeeper even washed it every day for us!

One time we ate dinner from the food court - turkey. It was really tasty. Turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans. Plus we grabbed an adult beverage from the pool bar. You can take your food outside or eat in the food court, which is very big.

Between the entertainment and the space in the family suite, we really recommend All-Star Music. We stayed there the first year it opened and it's still very nice. Although they no longer have the photo of Alice Cooper with the Big Bad Wolf in the lobby!!

We are looking at staying at the Music Suites next summer, can anyone tell me if they were able to take any of the discounts offered this year with the suites or are they only taken on the regular rooms?

I am traveling with folks who are in a Family Suite, but still can't decide if we should do the Preferred Room or Standard. The difference is $15 per room per night, so for our six night stay that is almost $200 (we need two rooms as we are traveling with family members and we are paying for their room-but don't suggest a family suite-we don't want to be that close.... Any comments about the size of the resort are welcomed-I think I am leaning towards saving the money!
