Thank you! I've gone back and forth on the suite vs. 2 rooms and TODAY I'm saying we are doing the suite! I'm sure I'll go back and forth in the next 10 months!

We will have FOUR kids though, I'm hoping there are enough beds for them (3 of them teenagers, so bed sharing isn't something they would be cool with)

Either way, you will be short one bed if all the kids want their own. I have seen my teen boy get quite comfy on the floor...I'd just make sure your daughter had a bed and let the teens work it out. If you are driving perhaps you can bring an air mattress.

Here is a thread where I posted more pictures of the suite...post #24 if you are interested.

I don't know but I also don't know where you would put a rollaway in the suite with the full size sofa, chair and ottoman opened up.

We'll be back at the All Star Music Resort in about a week!! Thrilled to be returning to WDW. Can hardly wait to soak in all things Disney! Especially the Christmas atmosphere which Disney does so well!

You'd be surprised what TIRED teens (and older) can tolerate.....MY DS, 21yo, just went to WDW with us in Oct. We packed a blow-up mattress and batteries for the inflater, etc., but SOMEHOW the PLUG for the mattress was left at home. He shared a double with his 11yo DS. They both passed out every night, it wasn't an issue, and the pics are hysterical!

From ASMu to Kingdom plus walk to CP I would allow a good 25 min by bus. Sometimes the bus stops at ASMo and sometime we went straight there. Either way it was not a bad trip at all but it is always good to show up at CP earlier than your ressie. I have always had to wait on the porch for at least 15 min. once I checked in at the outside desk. In any event, it is well worth it. Its our favorite buffet in the parks! Have a great time and remember an autograph book for any little ones.

See you there!

I leave Saturday and will check into Music on Sunday. I thank all of your for your advice. Even though I am a WDW veteran I have only stayed at Music once and that was many, many years ago. Many things have changed, including me.

If anyone else is going to be there please look for the huge LGM on my shoulder bag. I put it there just for YOU!

another question..

We will arrive on Sunday for our first trip...we requested a preferred room (fingers crossed) and when I was looking at picutres I saw that the rooms have two double beds. Are the beds moveable? Like can we push the two beds together so that my husabnd and I can sleep in the same bed? Just wondering....thanks so much...

Also, anyone done online check in at ASMusic? We have never done any of it before so I am no clue what I am doing. I am assuming (and you know what happens when you assume) that we will check in and recieve our tickets and etc right? All we have right now is the little coupon type book from our travel agent. Just wondering if we do online checkin how all of that works.

Thanks again..

Cozy

Eli's 1st trip, we are also arriving Sunday. Hope to see you there! I will be carrying an over the shoulder bag with a giant Lime Green Mickey Head on it and a big smile.

You cannot move the beds but they feel a bit bigger than double beds to me so if you do not mind getting a bit cozy you might both sleep in the same bed.

I just did the online check in and it was simple. Did not Disney send you an email with the link?

Checking in is easy either way. Just make sure to have your confirmation papers with you. Settle your husband and wee one over by the TV set and it should not be terribly difficult.

Hope to see you and yours there and hope you have a wonderful trip.

Thanks for the info, slightygoofy. I am 5 months pregnant so its going to be kinda hard to get cozy in a smaller bed than we are used to

I have the booklet from our travel agent that tells us all our info, is that what you are talking about when you say confirmation papers? And no, we did not recieve a link about online check in , I only know about it b/c of Disboards.

Maybe we didnt get it since we booked with Dreams Unlimited Travel..

Thanks again...see you around I hope :D

Link included

http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/Resor...ne-checkin.htm

Hi there D!

I hope this link works. If not just click the 'resort' tab at the top of the DIS page and then scroll down to where it says "online checkin".

It might save you a few minutes of waiting when checking in. This is my first time to use it as it is something new.

Yes, the confirmation papers have your booking number on it. You might want to also make some notes to yourself if you have special requests as well as there will be so much information given to you at the desk.

There will be a folder with resort information as well as parks etc. Do not fret over it all. You will never be able to do everything. They plan it that way so you have to go back. This is our celebration of going to DW for 25 years ourselves.

You will be so tired when you get back from the parks that any level surface will look good to you so maybe you might not mind not sleeping together for a few nights. I would put your small child in with your husband and enjoy a bit of solitude.

One other bit of helpful information. When you come to an attraction, such as Philharmagic, Tiki Room, or shows that have a definite time to be shown, just find a comfortable seat outside the attraction and wait to see folks exiting and then saunter in and find a seat. There are no bad seats and you will avoid the long waits in line.

Have to go. Lots to do before I leave. Please remember that I do not hear well so you might have to throw something at me, Disney Dollars work well (kidding), to get my attention. The truth is that I will notice your child as I love children. Books are my second favorite thing. I will read the same book over and over, for hours.

SG/Linda

How old is Eli? If he's under 3 you could request a king size bed.
