There's not a lot of space. The dresser is divided into 2 halves and one 1/2 is taken up by the fridge. The other 1/2 has 3 drawers, and they're not too big.

Other than that, there is room on the floor between the dresser and the bathroom - probably enough for 2 smaller suitcases. In the bathroom, there is a luggage stand and probably room for one more bag on the floor.

There are 4 of us (kids are 3 and 8) and we found it to be pretty close quarters. The suitcases on the floor were out of the way enough that you didn't feel like they took up space, but if you really plan to unpack completely for your stay, you might have a hard time finding a place for everything.

Not a lot! You have three average sized drawers. I've been following this thread for awhile and got some good tips. What I ended up doing was brining some extra hangers and I bought one of those hanging organizers with six openings at Walmart for $7 dollars that people use for like sweaters etc. it worked out great because there is a high shelf with a rod under it in the sink area to hang it off of and it held a ton of stuff. I made use of the high shelf by folding clothes in several piles and also standing our suitcases up there upright. I hung up just about all the shirts. I used the drawers for all the kiddos clothes since they don't need as much space. I brought a collapsible bin for shoes, and another for the counter to hold loose items in. Also bought an over the door organizer at the dollar store that I put hairbrushes, toiletries etc to reduce clutter. Also I bought a laundry bag at the dollar store that I hung from the high shelf to keep dirty laundry in. After all that we kept one small suitcase on the suitcase rack in the closet area with a few things in it. I should have taken a picture in retrospect! It was pretty impressive. With all the "stuff" organized we were able to keep the sleeping area clean and clutter free!

Shipping to the Resort?

Has anyone overnighted anything yet to AoA? If so how was it and what address did you use? And how quickly did they let you know you have a package?

Delta broke our booster seat and I had to have a new one shipped when we got there. I just used Amazon's two day shipping and the main address on Animation Way that was on all out paperwork. Sent it addresses to me c/o art of animation. When we got home from the parks it was waiting in our room.

Great! Thanks! I hate Delta! They broke our jeep stroller last year and we will never fly them again! They overbooked our flight and had to split my husband and my oldest DD up from me and our youngest DD! Then canceled their flight on Sunday til' Tuesday! It was horrible! We are flying South West this year!

We stayed in a LK suite in Sept and enjoyed it but honestly, if I had to choose again I would choose Cars. That area is just really well themed, had a cute pool, and is close to AH and the bus stop. The one thing I didn't enjoy about the LK area was the nightly movie...kept me up a couple nights.

You lose 3 drawers because if the fridge. So you only get 3 drawers in total. Me and my DH barely had enough room and we are here for 14 days. Long stay but only 2 of us.

Sorry meant to add that you could request more hangers to store your stuff. And use the top shelf where the sink is located.

We bought some cheap hangers at the dollar store and packed them along which helped out A LOT!! Mostly just used the drawers for unders, pjs and hair things for the girls. We stayed for 9 nights so I spent one morning doing laundry. I had picked up a cheap, collapsible hamper at Target to bring along, and I don't know what we would have done for that length of time without it. I also picked up a smaller collapsible box in the dollar section that we used to put food in. We should have brought a shoe hanger thing as well. That would have been ideal for all of the shoes.
