    We stayed in jazz last year. 2 teens and 2 adults. Had joining rooms and worked out great.

    We are planning a 12 day trip. I have a family of 5 so we would get a suite. My mother and sister will be joining us for the last 6 days and would only need a regular room. My mom has had both knees replaced and will be using a wheelchair for some of the parks. Is there a section of the hotel where the suites and regular rooms are close to each other and what would you guess are the chances of getting a suite and regular room close to each other. We are thinking about November 13 – 24 dates.

      Hey John, as noted both the Jazz and Calypso sections have both room types. As I recall–but my memory is weak–my suite in Calypso was right next to a standard room, so it’s possible you’ll be very close. DIsney won’t guarantee this, and the different arrival dates make it even less likely that you’ll be real close, but I don’t know enough to quote any odds.

      I’d suggest for your mom that you pony up for the preferred rooms in Calypso, which are closest to the main resort services and bus stops. Standard rooms are about $16/night (plus tax) more expensive there.

      Then link up your reservations on the My DIsney Experience site, and when you do online check in 60 days before for the suite, request either or both of Calypso and “near transportation.” (Both choices may not be offered, but at least the second will.)

      Hope this helps…
