All Star Music Family Suite or 2 connecting rooms. - UPDATED

Is it more cost effective to stay in the All Star Music Family Suite or get two connecting rooms.

Dad's all knowing Answer

This is one of those what's a one handed clap kind of answers. Let's compare and find out which is better, one Family Suite at the All Star Music or two connecting rooms.

Dad's Disney All Star Resorts room information

First the Family Suite - A Family Suite room at the All Star Music (the only Value Resort with Family Suites, currently) is $190.00 per night at the cheapest rack rate.

The "regular" rooms - A standard room at rack rates during the same time period is $82.00 per night. But Dad, you might say, the Family Suites are in the same area as the preferred rooms. OK, the preferred room costs $97.00 per night.

Conclusion. Two standard rooms at the All Star Music are much cheaper than the Family Suite. ($164.00 vs $190.00 per night.) But preferred rooms are just a a bit more ($194.00 vs. $190.00).

So, Dad, what's the difference between the two rooms? Now that's a real good question. A Family Suite has one queen bed. They sleep 2. Yes, two rooms with just one bed. ONE BED! ONE BED!!!! Do you think Dad's trying to make a point? Yes, there is a sleeper sofa in the other room, but if you count that as a bed (and Dad doesn't) the SUITE only sleeps 4.

There are two configurations for the connecting rooms. The two rooms either have with one king bed and two full size beds or four full size beds. That means the connecting rooms sleep 6 or 8 (according to Dad's math and Dad's pretty good at math).

Dad's Bottom Line

If you need to sleep more than 2 (OK, 4) then you might not want to choose an All Star Music Family Suite over 2 connecting rooms.

PS. The Family Suites throw in a refrigerator and a microwave.

Me, I'm not a big fan of the Family Suites. (Can you tell?)
