Yeah good point about the upgrade! I still think online check in is a good thing. Have a great trip! I'm counting the days...

Hello! ...you have free dining? I'm just wondering.... how did you get free dining? We are there at the same time as you (Dec 2-8) and it didn't seem that free dining was an option? If there is something I'm missing, please fill me in!!

Cheers,

Vicki

Yes! We got in late and were surprised . I didn't even realize till after we'd left the counter and were in the car pulling around. Love when you get those little magical surprises!

We are also staying at LM room next week with free dining. We got a pin before the offer was released to the general public and the pin included the LM rooms. But I believe all other free dining offers for the general public excluded those rooms.

When...today? Definitely not today. We are about 2 hours north (and usually a few degrees cooler) and it's already 63 here and warming up.

The Orlando forecast for the next 5 days show the high temps will be in the low to mid 70's. The lows in the low 50's.

I would expect the unexpected with weather anywhere..Lol. We were at Disney World in December 2010 during the first week of the month. They had temps in the 20's at times. I would definitely plan on bringing some layering clothing just in case it happens again!

A couple of questions for those of you who know

We are staying in a Lion King suite at AoA the week of Dec 2nd and would like to save some money by eating breakfast in the room. If I buy some microwavable items (ie. eggs) at Garden Grocer, do I also need to buy or bring plates/bowls/cutlery with me? Or does each room have these items in the cupboards?

What kind of coffee machine is it? Is there a certain filter I should bring/buy with me? (I am bringing my own coffee... Canadian eh!)

Are ice machines in each building? Will it be easy for us to run for ice? Ice bucket I am assuming is in each room?

We asked for the Lion King suite when we booked but I hear in other people's posts that they are "hoping to get" a certain suite. My kids are all excited about this particular suite... is there a possiblity we will be in another section instead? I just figured that I booked a LK room, and that is what is being held for me but maybe I am wrong?

What exactly is offered for drinks to go with the refillable mug at this particular resort?

Would it be considered bad etiquette to take out a water bottle or juice box from my bag at table service meals for my kids?

Is there one of those Bell rooms at AoA for Garden Grocer to deliver to if we aren't in our room the evening our food arrives?

Thanks in advance!!

There was a small supply of paper bowls, plates, and plastic utensils when we arrived. We had also brought some from home, so I am not sure if they restock during the stay bc we haven't needed to use theirs. I would think though that housekeeping will restock as needed.

The coffee machine makes one cup at a time. They have one serving pouches of coffee in the rooms. We haven't made coffee with it as we are not coffee drinkers, but we did use it to make hot chocolate

Ice machines are on each floor and very easy to get to. Coke products are offered at the drink stations.

I don't think anyone would bat an eye to taking out water or juice for the kids during meals. I've done that on many occasions.

Yes, they will accept grocery deliveries. We ordered from Walmart and our 3 boxes were waiting in our suite when we checked in.

Enjoy your trip! Our last day is Thursday and I am already getting sad about having to leave "home".

The coffee are actually called "pods". Here in the states, you can buy some at the grocery. You would not be able to brew your own coffee unless your brand comes in "pods".

Here are photos of the coffee set-up from my recent Finding Nemo stay:





The Celebration button is just about 3" in diameter and the pod is about 1/4 to 1/3 inch tall. If you look back (or search) in this thread, there were some links posted to coffee pods that other people thought would work. I looked at the links and searched on my own before going to WDW, but I wasn't convinced that what I found would work. Cuisinart doesn't even seem to be making these coffee makers for the general public. They are now producing a K-cup coffee maker for retail. The only thing I thought might work were Senseo coffee pods but they were very tough to find. The other drawback to coffee in the room is they only provide powdered, fake cream. I can't drink coffee -- particularly bad coffee -- without cream and sugar. But I drink my tea without adding anything, so I gave up and drank tea in the room and found good coffee in the parks. Good luck in your coffee pod search!

Here's a photo of the safe with an iPad in it. For those wondering about the safe:
