Hi

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what would be better for a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 preteens/teens) The family suite or 2 connecting rooms? thanks!

I think it really depends on your needs/wants in terms of sleeping arrangements. Personally, I prefer to have proper beds....not pull outs. With both types of rooms you will have two bathrooms and a fridge the only extra thing that the suite will get you is a microwave. Also, on the budget front often room discounts do not apply to the suites.

Another option that you might want to consider is that some of the deluxe resorts accomodate 5. Price wise it could be very similar. You would gain a better location but would loose the big food court....if that matters.

Thanks!

Deluxe is out this trip as we want to stay longer so the resort needs to be as budget friendly as can be at Disney.

I was just worried the pull outs are not as comfy as a real bed. I like the set up better so DH & I can have our own room & tv.

If you want your own room then two connecting rooms is the way to go....you can close the door. The suites are open.

I know a lot of people say the pull outs are comfy enough but I have never in my life slept on any type of pull out that was as comfy as a real bed. Plus, they are rather tiny.

Actually, the family's suites are quite comfy and roomy, being that its just a remodeled, two-room suite. There is one bedroom with a queen bed, night stands, a sitting chair, desk, desk chair, dresser and tv. Also, the bedroom has its own door that will close and lock. The living area has a sofa, chair and ottoman that all pull out to make beds. My kids always sleep on these pull put beds and have never complained. I think that I read on this board that the beds are made so that the support bars are not directly under your back. I have never checked this out myself but that's what I read. Also, the FSs have a kitchenette with a sink, microwave and fridge with ample counters pace and cabinets. Two standard bathrooms are included with sink/vanity areas outside the shower/toilet room. The wall safes and suitcase valets are in this area as well. The living room also comes with its own tv, entertainment center, table, two chairs and a bench seat/coffee table.

I'm not sure what the cost difference is between two standard rooms and one family suite, we just choose the family suite because it feels more homey plus it gives us a p,ace to stock breakfast items, water bottles, snacks, etc., in the kitchenette plus there is only one exit - something that helps when you have little ones.

Hope this helps!

I agree with AmyzOO. we had 2 adults and 3 teens and it was perfect! the kids each had their own bed we had our own room and bathroom, the kitchenette was a good size and nice to have sink too! I would lay on the pull outs and I did not have any problem with them! if you did get two rooms you will have 4 beds and someone would still have to sleep in your room? good luck deciding!!

We are taking a 2 week trip and decided on a family suite because the kids all get their own bed while DH and I get our own room, and because we'll have places to sit other than beds or small dining chairs.

Agreed - after four stays at Pop Century, I am heading back to an All-Stars resort because of the difference in room rates.
