FYI- I know there has been a LOT of talk about the thermostats. We're here know- on arrival it was set at 74. We were able to turn it down to 65 w no problem and there it has stayed. Last night the room actually was too cold and we're New Englanders.
The hotel is great- we're in LM building 8- looking at the pop lake. The walk really isn't bad at all. The Nemo pool is great fun for the kids!

My niece would love it, she's three. She likes dinosaurs, space, cars, and also animals, and having her nails painted,lol. Kids like what they like, despite the gender categories that we adults tend to put them in.

The Cars suites look fantastic, I'm sure she'll love it. Have a great trip!

Just returned from a quicky weekend trip with two nights in LM room, king bed. For a value price, this is a great resort. We were in building 7 second floor and other than the occasional flush of a toilet, we didn't hear much. The shower was great.
The bed was very comfortable (once you kicked off that cardboard of a comforter ) and our thermo was fine. We were on Deluxe Dining so we didn't eat at the resort but wandered through and it all looked great.

Busses were especially good. Too good actually. We left Sunday morning for reservations at 1900 park fare and had plans of a bus to MK, then boat to GF. When we got to the line for the bus, there were people backed up behind the ropes...changed our mind to go to epcot, hit the monorail and then connect. Got in line there, only to have two busses show up for MK before the epcot bus arrived, then followed up by 2 more MK busses that picked up everybody all within about 7-10 minutes. We jumped lines when we didn't have too! But it all worked out great.

With all this being said, we will probably not stay here again unless it is in a suite. Just hard for us to walk by all the cute suites to get to Ursula!
Was great to see the place and I can refer friends with youngsters that way cause it truly is a great little resort!

That's great news, I'm relieved to hear that about the thermostat! we booked LM for next October, and I was worried about the temperature of the room (we keep our house pretty chilly all the time, I HATE being even the list bit hot when I'm trying to sleep!)

Ok I found the listing online. Just google AOA movie schedule and you should find it. They won't let me post the link.

Hope this helps!

The link doesn't work for me - it might be from a blocked website.

I've never stayed at a value but it sounds like AoA is going to be a blast to be at. We are in the Finding Nemo area and the pictures look so amazing!
AKL is another one of our favorites, but I don't think you will be at all disappointed at a
AoA, especially with a suite! I can't think of another Disney hotel that is more Disney than this one. I hope you have a great trip.

So glad that you mentioned the dreadful comforter. That would be our only complaint. My husband kept trying to fold his half over onto my side, but it was so heavy and slippery that the whole darn thing would slide off the bed. They remind me of something made out of recycled plastic bottles. The texture is plasticky and they are very annoying. As I said, only complaint.

Thanks for those words. This has been my favorite since photos were released before the Grand Opening. Husband commented on theme. Any who, I agree that girls can like cars, dinosaurs and pirates too, and the princesses. MY DD does! Cars here we come, 60D!

The themeing is so great, I'm sure she'll be entranced by the magic. My girl loved it as much as my son; maybe watch the movie before going to get her excited when she gets there?
