    Was this a queen-size bed? It looks small. :confused3

    It was a queen. I did not feel that I was on top of DH. We are used to a king size bed.

    What a great thread. Thanks for all the info. :sunny:

    One question: I know I read that you can't do the free Dining while staying here, but what about the DDP that you pay for? Would the family suites be included in that? Thanks for your info once again.

    I'm pretty sure that you can pay for the dining plan if you are staying in the family suites. I know my DH and I talked about getting the dining plan, then decided against it.

    I hope you enjoy the Suites as much as DH and I did.

    Question for Linda, or anyone who has stayed at the suites...

    My family will be staying here in Jan. Quick question. Were the suites supplied with Shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc.? Also do the suites have a hairdryer and iron? Maybe these have been answered before and I probably missed it. Thanks again for all the great information.

    Hi everyone. :wave: I got back from the All Star Music Suites on Friday night. I just wanted to add that both of our bathrooms had a privacy curtain. Our bathroom layout was a little different from the one posted above (dana1003). If anyone has any questions about our stay there I would be happy to answer any questions.

    The space for a family of five was great. I would consider staying in the Suites again. :thumbsup2

    Linda, thank you so much again for the response and the information! Its very nice for you to take time to answer the questions. I really appreciate it. I will be sure to post a review upon our return.

    Glad to hear they are comfortable for 5 people (Grumpy's wife) we will have the same amount in our suite when we are there.

    For Grumpy's wife, how were the fold outs. I know Linda described them as being comfortable & very unique in design. Just getting another perspective.

    Honestly my kids weren't to thrilled when they found out they were sleeping on sofa beds. My oldest is 14 and she had the sofabed to herself. My middle DD9 had the chair and my DS-6 had the ottoman. They slept very well. I guess they were too tired to complain. They slept through the night every night. I loved the space the suite gave us. Two bathrooms were a big help. I really enjoyed the fact that when you came home from the parks you could sit on the sofa or chair as opposed to sitting on the bed to watch a little TV. I would stay there again. Two thumbs up from me. :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

    Yes I think they do. We were talking about when will we go back and I asked if they liked staying there. They all said yes. My DS is standing next to me now. I asked him if the bed was comfortable. He was on the ottoman mind you. He said yes it was. Maybe because they are new but the teenager didn't even complain that the sofa bed was uncomfortable.

    Thanks! My kids are small (3,5,7) so I'm sure they'd be comfortable but I'm thinking DH would like the atmosphere of POR better. I don't think the 2nd bathroom would be a big deal to us now the kids are so young. And the full price on the suite is more than a discounted single room at POR.
