Hi, Fellow New Yorker. Yes, I agree, the Cars area looks awesome. :thumbsup2 I like the look of the cabanas too! I'm just wondering... where's Orange City, NY? Do you mean Syracuse? If so, that's where I'm from. I live just outside Syracuse, in Liverpool.

I read your post wrong. I read it as Orange City, not Orange County. Oops! With Syracuse University being the Orangemen, I wasn't sure if you were referring to Syracuse. It must be nice to be that close to go into the city for Broadway shows!

Your family and your little one are going to have so much fun! Be sure to mention at check in that you're celebrating his 1st b'day and they'll give him a birthday pin. The CMs will give him special attention and sometimes special treats. He could wear it throughout the trip.

Our 1st trip with our kids was 4 years ago with my DH's parents, SIL and her family. All together there were 10 of us. Last year, my DH and I brought my DM (her 1st WDW trip!) along with our 2 DS's. I love it so much that I'm taking my DS's by myself this year. DH didn't want to go, plus he's a teacher so it's not a good idea to take too much time off. I figure why not go again while they're still young. They grow up so fast! Enjoy your time with your little one!

Checked in to AoA today! Just some facts: We were the first stop on DME. I did online check in and I'm glad I did. There was a ton of people in the regular check in line. We walked right up to the counter for online and were headed to our room in a couple minutes. We're in the Cars suite and I think it's beautiful. We're on the sofa bed right now and it's comfortable with my husband and I. The table bed is comfy, but at 5'2 if I was any taller my feet would hang off. We haven't been to the food court yet so no info on that. Any one have any questions for us? There will be 4 of us plus my infant son so I may have an answer or try to find one!

We are on the third floor out of four. I'm surprised at how thin the walls and floors are. Our room is right next to the elevator and at first I though that was good, but now I feel otherwise. We could hear everyone returning to the floor unless they were quiet. Request a top floor and try to be away from the elevator. The food court is busy late at night (8pm) because people coming back from parks maybe? Nemo pool looked busy but Cozy Cone was practically deserted. More to come!

We just checked out of LM bldg 8 4th floor on Saturday. People weren't kidding . It's a haul from that part of the resort to the main bldg. still, we loved out stay. Even our two year old went with the flow. The dining area has some kinks to work out and I was disappointed that they lonely had unhealthy drink choices for the mugs but my mom came one day and we drove to Walmart to get mio and some juice boxes for the kids. I just had diet green tea or ice water with lemon from the drink station. Really want to stay in the cars suite next time. If you buy groceries and have a child under three, get some bread and you can toast it in the dining area. That saved us a lot of time. Biggest complaint was spotty wifi because I was still working and I needed to get online everyday and didn't want to pay extra for the business center. Epcot had a great wifi connection in the Land pavilion . Go figure!

My brother and family are just back from 9 nights at AoA Ariel section. They loved it, but said storage is a real issue. They said there was just no where to put anything and they really wished the dresser had more and bigger drawers. My SIL said she wished would have brought one or two of those hanging shelf things. They also said the room was pretty small, but it was okay because they weren't in it much. My brother's biggest complaint was having to walk all the way to the food court in the morning for coffee, he could not believe there was no coffee maker in the room. He said the walk to the main building wasn't that bad, but in the morning, having to walk over there for coffee or breakfast items wasn't great and it seemed a lot farther after a long day in the parks walking from the bus stops. He thinks each section should have it's own bus stop. They did like it though and the kids LOVED the Nemo pool. They also said they thought the food in the food court was really, really good.

I am there for one night only, Oct 20, before switching to a DVC room.

I guess I am the only one here, where they cannot tell me what section I will be in? It is so odd, I made this reservation in early May. At that time, they said they could not specify a section. OK. I called back in late August, to ask for Cars.

I was told I have a family suite, I said yes...... and the CM told me over and over, I was in an UNthemed building at Art of A!! I politely said, I do not think they HAVE any of those.... She insisted, and would not give me to a supervisor. So I called back, and got another CM, who said it will be themed, but no idea until I checkin as to the section.

I will roll with it, since it is only one night, but still annoying. I would assume we will get Lion King, least desirable.

Edit: I just did online checkin, thought that might tell us our section, but no.

To the prior poster who said Lion King as undesirable I may say otherwise. We were in Cars but I think Lion King may have been better suited for us. The bone play area is great for young small children. Cozy Cone pool is more suited for adults and teens. It's not zero entry like the Nemo pools. Little Mermaid is definitely a haul. The buses are not quite efficient yet. You could wait 20 minutes between buses or you could wait 5 (between them, not total wait time) for Magic Kingdom. Hollywood Studios always ran 3-4 buses in the time one MK bus ran. Getting back we never waited long, but we always had to leave mid afternoon as my son is only 1 and it's too hot to nap in the stroller for too long. The food court is a disaster. It's unorganized and needs to be bigger. The pasta is delicious. My husband had the mongolian stuff and thought it was good.

. I thought the suite was a good size and comfortable for 4 adults and crib child. No one slept on the table bed but we pulled it down and all agreed its comfy. The sofa bed is still on the stiffer side but very comfortable. My parents slept there and said it was almost as good as a regular bed. The fridge held two 12 packs of cans and two 1/2 gallons of milk plus extra stuff.

I am satisfied with our stay and having a large group like that I would stay there again. With just the 3 of us I would stay in a moderate resort with better transportation. It was a bummer to wait 15 minutes to take a 20 minute drive.

Oh and the bathroom fans are obnoxious. Without turning lights on it still kicks on and off all night long. Sleep with the bathroom doors closed.

Which building/section is closest to the bus transportation?

I'm still here, leaving in the morning. We are in Cars and its very nice, 4th floor of Building 2. We do hear some kids running and hollering when they get back from the parks, but it doesn't last long. The internet works fine and our Verizon phones have great reception.

I'd say the Nemo section is the closest to the center, to the main building/lobby/food court/buses and the amazing main pool. They have underwater speakers, you can hear the music underwater! Enjoy!

I'm at the lm section, building 7 which is Ursula. The wifi is free and I've had great wireless my entire stay. In fact, I've had great wifi in all the Disney parks (never knew there was wifi here to use!)

We walked to animation hall and it took a few minutes. There's awesome things to explore and look at while you walk. We enjoyed it.

The resort is beautiful & clean!
