Yes! They were the heaviest comforters I've ever had on a bed in my life. There was no way I could sleep with that thing. I had to fold it up and put it in the other room.

I'm in building 8 right now ground floor and have no cell issues. The walk is really annoying, the resort is gorgeous though. Check in was crazy busy yesterday I'm glad I did online check in.

My own thoughts on a few of the issues that were brought up...

I noticed the trash cans were too small too, but I think that was designed that way on purpose, since they have real utensils and plates, so people didn't just dump their whole tray, glass and all. It only took an extra second, I didn't mind it.

I hated the comforter. No comfort at all, soooo stiff and heavy, we fought with it every night to take it off the bed.

We were in building 9, facing the pool, 3rd floor and had no problems with cell service, and we also had no issues with the wifi.

All in all we loved it there!

Just wanted to comment on the comforters. We've had the same experience at Pop when they did a re-do, including new comforters. They were very heavy and stiff as cardboard. So stiff that it took a lot of effort just to fold them down to the end of the bed. We just took them off the beds & left them off, but they were so huge when folded that there was nowhere to go with them. Then our mouskeeper offered to bring us some that had already been laundered a few times and "softened up." Much better. By our next trip, they were already soft & flexible when we arrived.

So if you're uncomfortable just ask your mousekeeper for some that have already been washed.

We had a further walk staying at the pops and Caribbean then the little mermaid section. We were in section 9.. Soooo, I really did not think anything of the walk.. I actually enjoyed the walk with my kids and they didn't mind it either.. We timed it and it was 5 minutes...

I know that the first page of this thread says that there are irons/boards in the rooms, but can anyone confirm that they are in LM rooms as well?

I have never had a need for an iron until my upcoming trip for the "princess dresses" lol

At the airport waiting to go home...boo! I will do a full review on the Resorts board later, but just wanted to put in a quick update. We were in LK building 10, 7037. We had a view of Timon, Pumba, and Simba, which was cute. Our room was very close to Nemo pool, Animation Hall, and busses. We had plenty of space for the 5 of us (and that is coming from someone who likes to do a 2 bedroom in a DVC resort!) and all the beds were pretty comfortable. Having 2 bathrooms was a HUGE plus. Only complaint about the room was that the nightly movies were just outside our room and it was pretty loud...kept me from sleeping a couple times (but we do go to bed pretty early sometimes). We enjoyed both the Nemo pool and Cars pool, food at LOF was actually very good. We had no problems with busses, but yes, they were pretty crowded when leaving the parks at night, but that is too be expected. We never waited for more than 10 maybe 15 minutes and that was always when we just saw a bus leave as we approached. Overall, we enjoyed the resort and would stay there again if we were going to stay in a Value, but truthfully I am a Deluxe girl at heart and I am thinking BC for our next family trip. If anyone has questions, I would be happy to answer them.

Just booked AoA LM room for Dec 21st!! We will only be there for one night, our arrival night but we are still super excited!!

Is there a certain building I should be requesting? We will be arriving late after our long drive so I really don't want a long walk from our car to our room.
