If you get building 6 courtyard, check from the outside to see where your room is. I, would want somebody to take our picture in the window if it looked like we were in the tree.

I don't think I can bring enough of it on the plane for the whole stay, and I have no way to get to the supermarket! We have a few breakfast buffets scheduled (Tusker House, Cape May). Do they have yogurt containers or just yogurt in a bowl that you serve yourself? Thanks!!


You could always have one of the off site grocery stores deliver to your room. You could have a case of Yoplait in his favorite flavor waiting for you when you check in! Try www.gardengrocer.com !

About the underwater music --

I was very disappointed that the "character discussions" are few and far between -- maybe 10-15 seconds ever 15-20 minutes -- the rest of the time they play music -- and not the music above the water.

You also do not have to be "fully submerged" to hear it.. as long as there is an unbroken trail of water from your ear to the pool it works! i just floated around on my beak relaxing for a few hours on one of our down days -- and notice that even with my head out of the water, i could still hear the music -- until it drained.

its still cool, but i expected more chatter

I love how when I log into my reservations on Disney's site, it has the notification telling me that I can do the online check-in on 10/4. It makes it more real!!

I'm sorry that people are feeling let down by the LM area, but it's your vacation and money so you should definitely do what you think is best! I however cannot wait for my DD5 to see all this - she is going to love love love it!

Just got back from my awesome stay at Disney, and the test stay was awesome at LM..here is a link for the pics...it was a little hectic due to some issues with the door locks and room problems, so was a little chaotic, finally got some pics, then was off to the parks since my daughter was off. I will just say that LOVED LOVED LOVED IT..my 3 year old daughter kept saying she was in the movie..enough said I think! Enjoy!

Thank you so much for posting this!! I'm actually feeling a little better now! How did you feel about the distance from LM to the food court? Did it seem like TOO much or was it ok?

Thanks so much for posting!! I love the interior pictures! Did you feel that it was a long walk to Animation Hall or the buses?

The walk to the food court/front was not bad at all, jmo, there is so much to look at, you don't pay attention to the time, really.. but it did get tiresome walking back and forth several times in a row to get the room door lock fixed and corrected, but if just once, it is just fine, lol. That whole resort is like walking into a Disney movie, absolutely mind blowing to me. You guys and especially your kids are going to have the time of your life!

Just to note, for peeps staying on opening day, get ready for the new plastic smell of the room! Some people like that, I know, but it was strong. My only thing I wished they had did, was put a little shelf over the vanity sink. I kept trying to put things up there, then realized they did not have one! LOL..
