LM King rooms?

We're headed to AoA during the first week of October. We booked two LM rooms with a guaranteed connecter door (cheaper than getting a family suite in the other sections). And, I was wondering if anyone knows if they will have King bed rooms in the LM section? We are hoping to have one King room connected to a 2-double bed room.

Anyone know?

Thanks!

They have King bed rooms, just not sure if they connect to double bed rooms.

Honestly i was so excited to book a AoA for our next trip, now im not so sure. I really dont think I like how far LM rooms are from the main building. For this reason alone, i'd book another resort. Maybe Pop, and just visit AoA every once in a while. Lol!

I am, too, concerned about the walk from LM rooms to the bus stop.

The buses are only out in front of the Animation Hall?
They do not drive through the property and have stops every few buildings?

I've only stayed at Old Key West, and that's what they had....so I just assumed there would be pick ups and dropoffs throughout the resort - including the Little Mermaid room area.... No??

Nope. At AoA they only stop at the main hall. Sorry.

There are no guaranteed connecting rooms. No matter what you were told, it's a request, not a guarantee.

I don't know if putting in another request for a king bed will be a problem for the connecting rooms. If the connecting rooms is most important I'd just go with that.

Thanks Canadian guy for the quick response.

Am going to have to re-think staying in a LM room.

What is the problem with the walk from LM to Animation Hall or the bus stops...it's 5 mins max!! I read all of the complaints about the long walk from 90's at POP to the food court - we always ask for 90's..it's a short walk. No offence intended, but I sometimes think you US guys have forgotten what your legs are for.

And before I get flamed, I understand that guests with small children or disabilities may need to be closer, but c'mon guys, you can walk around the parks all day so what's the problem with a little walk at your resort!!!

People can flame me too, because I agree with you completely. Although, there may be an upside to this; it might make it easier for me to book our room for next April if people aren't staying in the LM area because of the walk.

For me...I have a disability and will be renting a scooter for the parks. That's why I asked.

I hope you don't think my response to Eliza32's post was inappropriate or rude towards you. I just meant it towards able-bodied guests. I know that she did too, and I hate how things can get misconstrued on the internet .

That's my thought as well. Last year we stayed in the 70s facing the lake at Pop, so not quite as long a walk as the 90s but still a nice stroll. I really noticed it seemed like about 15 miles in the evenings when we would get back to the resort, walk to our room, walk BACK to Classic Hall to fill our mugs, walk back to the room...all on sore tired blistered feet.

By the way, get some ice and fill your tub with cold ice water, and sit on the edge and soak your feet. I did that many times and it helped so much when my feet were sore. Hopefully I'll be 40 pounds lighter our next trip and that will help too...

I am curious in the distance as well. We are looking to book next year. We will do POFQ, but our daughter wants the LM room so we will probably do a couple of days there. I am curioius for the distance as my husband has a medical condition so while he would do it, I would prefer to keep the extra distance to a minimum.
