Big difference between a family suite and a regular standard room!! My LM room is costing me $148 for Sunday night, and $173 (I think) for Sat night. Expensive? Yep. But it's only for two nights. We'll be at Music for the first 4 nights...at half the cost!! And the walk? I've had worse walks at deluxe resorts!!! Man, the walk to my room in Tokelau at the Polynesian was a lot longer. And the walk to most of my BWV rooms? Double. And AKL-Kidani? Don't go there...if you have a distant room you might want to pack a snack for the walk to the bus stops!!! And stay at a deluxe for that price, but get more amenities? Nope. Those that are staying in these costly family suites usually have at least 5 in their group....which is going to put them out of the deluxe room occupancy. So, they get a larger 'room', with sleeping for more, as well as privacy for mom and dad, two TVs, a kitchenette. I think they are a very good value. But, it all depends on your needs.
