We've done both in the past - used the bus or rented a car - and we're renting a car again this year when we go in December. In pricing it out it's less than $200. Which may seem like a lot, but I know I will worry constantly about getting to ADRs etc on time. I like being able to come and go as I please - and since we've planned some "off time" during our stay we'll be able to drive off site if wanted.

As for clothes and what to wear from a PP - I'm going with layers this time around. When we went in Dec two years ago - it was nice during the days (I wore jean and a fleece all week) and very cold at night. Some days were warmer than others. I'm a new englander and usually wear flip flops until it snows so my cold tolerance is very high. So pack a little of everything!

Thanks for the tip. We're Disney Visa card holders so we're already on it. Can always use more though!

You need to call Disney and put your request in before you do on-line check in. Because when you do on-line check in you CAN"T put in a request.

Online check-in does allow a limited set of requests depending on the resort options. "Ground floor" and "Near transportation" are choices available during online check-in for other resorts such as Pop Century. Pop also now allows you to request specific sections during online check-in, which isn't usually applicable to AoA because of how rooms are booked there.

I don't know the specific choices available for AoA but yes there are request options available during online check-in for AoA.

The only option for AoA online check in was to request a pack n play. We called with our requests about 2 weeks ahead of time.

Just Returned

We stayed from September 29th and left October 7th, we had a third floor room Building 7 facing the lake, Ursula building.
What a great room, very quiet room was bigger then I expected it to be, the CM's were great they really went out of their way to help us. Got a lot of Pixie Dust this trip. It was our kids first trip and we both have not been in over 15years so it was great, very very hot. Found the walk to the food court ok, not too bad but not too short. Mousekeeping was great they gave us lots of soaps and shampoos, we had our own car, so we drove to all the parks. Long drive from Canada, I think next time we will fly. Over all I loved this resort, but I think next time I will pay to be closer to Magic Kingdom because that was were we spend most of our time, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

It looks like the Coke options are regular, diet and coke zero. I'm also a fan of the caffeine free diet coke, so I'm hoping someone else comes on to say that it's been added.
Thanks! Usually I'm ok w/ the regular diet coke while at the parks, but I'm going Marathon weekend and know I'll have a hard enough time falling asleep race eve w/ nerves and I can imagine what the caffine will do. I'll just order online. Thanks again!

We're staying in LM and I know it will be quite a walk to get drink refills. Can we refill our refillable mugs, dump it into a separate container, then refill the mug and again dump it into another container to leave in the fridge?

Or would that be tacky? I don't see a problem with it but what do you think? I was going to bring a small rubbermaid container for beverages for that purpose.

Those who have stayed: Finding Nemo or Lion King? We're waffling. Anyone in the FN suites, did you find them to be affected by the pool noise?
