Looking good ... but too much floor space, get more bananas and put one in the center of that Table top. ...

Your plants look great! I have seen a lot of pictures of plants brought in for the winter. Many of those plants slowly go down hill for a variety of reasons, mainly lack of light. Your plants look amazing! You did all the right things.

I think that is a problem for most of us. Not enough bananas.

Thank You!!!
just kept them watered and fertilized, and of course light, you can see the doors, south and west facing.

Most said to cut way back on watering, but when I did that they would start drooping and wilting, so I gave them a cup or two every two - three days.

My fear is , what are they going to do when I move them outside, and / or try to repot them, or may be plant them in the ground?

As a general rule yes, reduce watering over the winter. You got away with it and probably benefited from the extra water for 3 reasons.

#1 your plants are good sized and in small pots. Probably quite root bound.
#2 your plants continued growing and used the water.
#3 your plants have a good number of leaves to evaporate extra water.

Only risk I see moving plants outside would be sunburn of the leaves. You could help that by moving in stages. Shaded area for a week. Sun shade split for a week. Then full sun after that.

These are supposed to be Musa Basjoo's, but I don't know how to tell.

I have some others (not in pots) that were id'd on here by the fruit as Orinoco ,
but they all kinda look the same to me.
last year was my first year to grow banana plants,, looking forward to this year.
