    Gee, do not know those answers, but I am sure if you posted on the Family Suites thread someone would know! :)

    Minnie61650 knows everything about the Family Suites, so you could even send her a private message.

    I'm sorry I could not help more:(

    You might also consider a two-bedroom DVC. We stayed in one once with a family group of 8 + baby and enjoyed it. There are two bedrooms, two baths, plus a sofa sleeper in the living room. You get a complete kitchen, dining area, living room area plus washer/dryer.

    We liked that we could gather in the mornings around the kitchen table, have breakfast and plan our day. It was more like staying in a home.

    We stayed at Saratoga Springs Resort. Although we were comfortable, I'd probably go with Old Key West next time as I understand the rooms are bigger.

    Hi, Grace and Mickey,

    I cannot answer the DVC question well enough, but we have rented points. The best place for info would be here:

    http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=29

    Read the very first thread and then you could check out more threads. :) DVC can also be reserved directly through Disney just like a resort room - you can call or find more info on www.disneyworld.com :) It is more expensive that way.

    Wish I could think of more options for 7 people - but a Family Suite would give two bathrooms, two TV's etc...I am thinking any arrangement with 2 bathrooms and 2 TV's would be a plus - be it a Family Suite or 2/3 rooms :)

    Some guests rent a house/condo off site - many come with a pool! If you are renting a car and would not mind being off site that could be a possiblity. I found this on allears:

    http://allears.net/acc/vhomes.htm You can read reviews there as well. :)

    Did you check out the Family Suite thread I posted? Was that of any help?

    Good luck!!

    Oh, I agree completely! Would not stay off site. Way back in the 80's when we could find no room for a last minute weekend, we did stay at a Downtown Disney hotel, but then buses were provided by Disney and there was no EMH's, so it did not feel off site - and there was only 3 Disney Resorts at the time! Would never do that now, as the hotels do feel off site - buses are awful and no EMH, except for the Hilton.

    Anyway!! Yes, the dining plan is a pkg only available to Resort guests - so everyone must have the same tkt - even if it is just one day. If youa re going long enough, it might be worth buying an Annual Pass - then you can take advantage of any resort discounts that might be available and now can add on DDP too. :)

    And if you have AAA don't forget to check fot AAA rates at the resorts - this can be done calling CRO directly, but the dining plan can only be added to a AAA reservation by booking directly through a AAA travel agent.

    Planning is half the fun!!
    p.s. If you decide to rent points, the dining plan can be added and it would be paid for at check-in. :)
