Some people also received a pin number in the mail which they could get fd even if they stayed in LM...that is how we got our fd package.

That sounds right. The roads were very dark, we maybe only passed 3 cars...I was wondering why we took those.

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!

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).
Thanks for that info

We are a big group 25 and 3 strollers... we may need to shop at the parks after fireworks

We are one week from tomorrow. I can't believe it's so close after starting the actual planning a year ago and deciding on the trip since 2007!

Here are some pics of AoA Christmas decoration pics. Sorry they're not better quality. The resort looked beautiful (Sorry about the sizing, trying to figure out how to make the images smaller.)

We leave in a week and we're staying in the LK. I know they have the Cuisinart coffee pod coffee maker, anyone know if you can buy those pods anywhere? I know they provide them, but I just looooove my hazelnut coffee : )

Are there windows in the LM rooms? I've looked at a few pictures that have been posted and have not noticed a window in any of them.

Yes...they are just like any other value resort room. They have a window looking out beside the door.

Isn't the door on an inside corridor? So does it look out into an indoor hallway?

One Week!!!

I can't believe it, we will be checking into a FN suite in just one week! We are 4 adults, no kids. I've read that this resort is more for families and has a lot of kids, but I think we'll be fine. And we have 2 other adults who just got upgraded from a standard room to a suite in another area, so they are thrilled. The food court looks amazing. I'm still reading through this thread, but I'm SO EXCITED!!!

Single digits Cars suite here we come! For those who have stayed did you leave the murphy and table beds in sleeping positions or did the maids put the up each day we leave in the am and get back late nights seems like it would be easier to walk into room after a long day and have the kids beds ready to go...

Housekeeping put the table/couch back to the regular positions...however if its a big deal just leave a note, I'm sure they'll be happy not to have to do the extra work.
