None of the AoA rooms/suites have DVD players.

Just back today, yes, wood hangers in bedroom and living room "closet" areas.

My experience is that the lines will be *very* long but that is also when the buses pretty much have one right behind the other knowing this. How long you wait really depends on your timing of getting out of the MK. If leave right after Wishes, along with everyone else you could be waiting 15-30 mins. Depending on crowds.

They jam pack the buses too... It's a long crowded ride back if you are not in a seat. Tired parents and kids too. Put your patience hat on!

Just back, quick review of AoA LK suite.

Requested a room close to bus stop. Did the online check-in before leaving home. Arrived about 9:30 Friday night. Took about ten minutes to check in. Online check-in line had 2 cast members working, regular line had several more. Regular line moved much faster.

We were assigned room 6532. Looking at the map that didn't seem close to the bus stop . We walked there and were pleasantly surprised at how compact the resort is. Everything was close and convenient. Our room was on the first floor with a view of the lake and Pop Century.

Like others have said, the pictures online make the rooms look really busy, but in person they're much nicer. We also had problems with tripping over things on the floor- everything just kind of blends in with the colorful pattern. We ended up storing our shoes on the shelves under the bathroom vanity.

We had no issues with hearing our neighbors or people walking through the hall. We found the room to be very quiet-as quiet as our previous stays at CSR. We did not miss the very long walks to the bus stop, pool or restaurants that we had at CSR. It was nice to actually be able to use the refillable mugs.

We did pool hop between the Big Blue and Cozy Cone pools. Both were lots of fun- Nemo was a much livelier atmosphere, but Cars theming was great, too. If you visit the pools, bring towels from your room! It's probably on this thread and posted all over the resort, but somehow I didn't figure it out until we were already at the pool. We ended up just "roughing" it.

We found the food court to be beautiful, but loud. The food was good. The cast members were kind and helpful.

The resort is well maintained. They are constantly cleaning and tending to the grounds. They were even touching up some of the paint on the walls. Everything is very clean and new.

We were very pleased with the bus service. The rides to the parks were quick. Epcot and Hollywood Studios took about 10 minutes. MK was about 15 minutes.

Mousekeeping did a great job. We were treated to several towel animals.

The Christmas decorations at the resort went up last night. I will attempt to post pictures later.

I've got lots of laundry to do.

It was also our experience on Saturday that after Wishes, our bus back to AoA took some 'backroads' (as in, not highways or parkways) which added some time onto our trip.

The lines were not too long, and they had two AoA buses loading at once on Saturday after Wishes (however don't get your hopes up for this happening to you).

There was some discussion about the Wine and Dine 1/2 marathon impacting traffic on Saturday night. Maybe that's why the backroads were taken. . We waited a while for a bus after Fantasmic (the first bus filled and we were able to take the 2nd)and the traffic seemed especially heavy.

One month from today!! It'll be my first solo trip and my first trip to WDW during the Christmas season.
If it's a good experience, next year my sister will try a Christmas trip. I sense a new tradition in the making.

Thanks for the response on the DVD player. I'm thinking we should rename this thread "how far is the walk from LM rooms?"

I can't wait to see pictures of some of the Christmas decorations at AOA! We stayed there this year the weekend it opened, and next year will be going back for a Christmas visit! Might stay at AOA, but will stay at POP if we get some sort of discount! A quick visit over to AOA won't hurt anyone!
