AOA tips from a mom who's there right now : )

Here are some things I was wanting to know before I came, hopefully it helps someone out!

1) I find Landscape of Flavors to be completely INSANE in the morning (and we are here when touring plans calls WDW a 2/10 for crowds!) seriously not ready for that before I have coffee. So although we are on the DP, next time I would make sure I had breakfast items in the too so we don't have to deal with all that when we first wake up.
2) I am a total coffee snob, but I think the room coffee is fabulous. It's just those Cuisinart pods, but they are so fresh and yummy! That being said, I wish I had a real coffee cup and some half and half...so we figured out we could take our refillable mugs and get half and half in one for the in-room coffee so I don't have to leave and go to crazy town before I've had my caffeine fix.
3) We are a family of 5, we have a 10 year old, an 8 year old and a newly 4 year old. We brought her a $25 cot to sleep in from Amazon, it fits beautifully next to the bed in the master bedroom. Awesome. We had one son on the table bed, and one on the fold out couch, perfect right? Not so much. I am a pretty light sleeper and barely slept a wink the first night...the brand new sheets are sooooooo loud- every time my husband moved it was crazy loud. Plus I have a bad back and those beds are just too soft for me, my back was hurting so bad. So we figured out that the two cushions from the couch put together long ways made a lovely twin size bed for our 10 year old. We just asked for some extra sheets and a blanket and wala! I got to,sleep on the oh-so-comfy table bed and now Mama's well rested and happy which means everyone is happy : )
4) The collapsible hamper idea I got from here worked awesome, I carried it over to the laundry mid week, and had an incredible margarita and read a People magazine by the big blue pool while I "did laundry". Awesome.
5) yes the room temp is an issue. But I figured out you can turn the fan on high and that helped a ton!

Last place we stayed was WL villas, which were amazing...but I love this, love the space, love the newness...looooove having our own car. It's been incredible, I'm sad to leave Saturday!
