Family Suites

We are booked in with the family suites in January - love the idea of having that extra space, 2 bathrooms, ahhhh....

One question about the pool side bar at the resort, how late does it stay open?

Question

I am leaning toward staying here for our next trip- hopefully in December, maybe January... are the resort pools still open in December and January? What about the water parks? (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon)? Thanks for all the info-- this is a great thread!

I've been several times in Dec & Jan and you never really know what kind of weather you might get. I have to say the best weather I have ever had of any of my nearly 30 trips was in January-nice warm days-low 80s and cooler nights but even then I didn't need a jacket. Crystal blue skys and no humidity-just perfect. Then again about the worst weather I've ever had was also in January-rain is bad enough in August in a tropical storm but rain with 50 degree temps during the day and down into the 30s at night doesn't make for fun park touring weather.

So on at least 4 Dec/Jan trips I've had highs in the 80s and lows in the 30s on the same trip. You have to bring a bit of everything for clothes-dress in layers. On all of those trips my kids did go in the pool at least once.

The pools are heated.

There is always one water park open but from Nov through Feb they close one water park to do a renovation then they close the other park to do its renovation.

We stayed at the Family Suites one time. I really enjoyed the layout of the suites.

Thank you! Good to know. I would probably not get the water park feature (or park hopper-never use that anyway) added onto our tickets, and just use the pools then. With my luck it would be freezing and would end up being a waste of money
Is it wrong, and a little crazy, that I have been back from WDW all of 2 days and already planning my next trip?

You can add either of those ticket features at any time with in the first 14 days of use so if it is really hot and you decide you want the water park feature you can add it on. My kids were quite happy with the pools at ASMu.

I almost always have my next trip booked before I go on a trip. I hurt my foot on a trip in May but couldn't have surgery until after my already booked trip in July. I had surgery 5 days after I got home. I didn't have a trip booked until last Sunday when Jet Blue extended their schedule through 9/6/11. I went 3 months without a trip booked and will still wait another 6 months before my next trip. I haven't gone that long between trips in years. I am having my other foot operated on 11/22-bunions. Probably should have done it years ago but when they really started interfering with my Disney touring I knew I had to get them fixed. All my coworkers think I'm crazy but it is my escape from reality.
