This worked wonders for me. I would turn off 4g and 3g, only turning it on a few times a day when I checked the Lines app (which as an aside, you MUST get).

I have a Galaxy SII (Epic Touch), for what it's worth.
Thanks for the info and advice. I have the Lines app along with a few others. I'll be sure to use them.

We stayed in LK building 10. Great location, closest to main building and big blue pool.

We loved, loved, loved the theming and the size of the rooms. Our beds were comfy tho the Murphy was a little short for my 5' 10" DD.

The showers were awesome and beautiful

The food court was good with interesting choices (especially for vegetarians )but it was so crowded and the cashiers were so slow that the food was cold by the time we got to our table.

I must have had poor timing because I found the waits for the buses too long.

Verizon cell service was poor, I had to go outside to make a call. I agree about free wi-fi, nice gesture but they need to work out the kinks so it actually works.

From the bedroom with the door closed I heard NOTHING!! From the other rooms you could hear hall noise but what hotel is totally soundproof?

I am a hotel snob, I admit it, and I only stayed here because it was a suite and new. I would certainly stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.

Thanks!!
there are not at least not ones I could find. They had the little ones for kids but the full sized waffles were round.

Note we were only there for breakfast twice so *maybe* we hit off days but I didn't see them listed anywhere either

Buildings 8 (Ariel) and 9 (Triton) both have sides that face the parking lot. The only LM building that isn't really anywhere close to a parking lot is Building 7 (Ursula).....it faces the courtyard and the lake.

Yes. Building 1 on the end of the hall closest to the main building. Very close, we r on the 4th floor, so that means 4 flights up the stairs at the end, other you have to walk to the middle of the building to use the elevators. We don't mind, but want to be specific...1800s would be 4th floor building one. And 1811 Wn 1812 are the second rooms in from the very end. 1813 an 1814 would be the last ones in our hall. Great spot!

Enjoy! Very fun.

It was really an ideal location and we didn't hear any outside noise at all.

estions!

were you way at the end of the building and how long of a walk to AH? (looking at this map) or were you in the section that juts out to the left?

I think they were just regular-shaped waffles. Can check again tomorrow morning. Sad since the Homewood Suites we stayed in before we came here had them (as part of their free breakfast)!!!!!! Doh.

No, not on the part to the left, but right along the path near the playground and the bridge. I could see the bridge out my window to the left and the playground to the right. Does that help? The walk was mimimal. We went thru the hotel hallway and came down the stairs at the side of the building closest to AH, instead of taking the elevators in the middle. The walk was under 5 minutes when we strolled.

Does anyone know how much games are at the Pixel Play Arcade? We have a voucher (I think for 100 credits or something) as part of our AAA package.

100 points will get you 1 or 2 games ---- but you can get 2500 game points for $22 or so $$$

I bouth the 2500 point card for my kids, and they played the skills games and made out like bandits -- scored big on pretty much every game and got about 11,000 points to cash in for prizes.

We won't buy any points since DD is only 4. I figured we would use the free ones and leave it at that. Thanks!
