Thank you.

LM seems to fill quickly. I would go ahead and book if you have your heart set on staying there.

There's really no science on the PIN codes it seems. My clients have been booked at BWV for months, then we applied the new spring offer to their reservation for a small discount. A week later they received a PIN via mail that applied to the reservation that was already booked. Well okayyyy let us take another $75 off that then ... strange.

plenty of people get PIN codes with a trip already booked.

Hi I am new and I had a quick question.
We have been to Disney a few times and have stayed at all the values. We are heading back in April and hoping to book the AoA.

This may seem silly but I have a food question- looking at the menu for the caf I did not see all the kid friendly food like grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, French fries.. Etc

Also didn't see breakfast sandwiches like croissants?

Is the food in the AoA caf very diff from the other values where you could get anything??

Like I said silly question but with picky kids its a deal breaker!

Thank you to anyone who can help!!

PIN codes refers to special offers that are mailed or emailed to individuals and contain a unique number code. Only the person receiving the PIN can book with that number to receive the special offer. You can either call to book or visit a online page with your PIN -- usually (but not always) the PIN mailing will include a web address.

The offers that are mailed are similar to the ones that are generally available -- room discount, free dining, etc. -- but may be offered earlier than general offers or with different dates.

There's no sure way to get a PIN code mailed to you, but certainly a way to try and get one is to make sure you sign up with Disney to indicate you have an interest in visiting WDW -- order a planning DVD, create a user name on disneyworld.com, plan out a package online and then click to save an offer without booking are all common recommendations.

I would say faster than most. They are the only standard rooms at AoA. If being left out of most of the discounted room offers is any indication that LM is popular enough to not offer discounts then I would want to book as soon as I could. Booking or not booking does not always give you a better chance of a PIN. We gotten PINs having already booked. We booked LM during Spring break & of course this was the only section left out of the spring discounts. But this is where we want to stay so we booked it.

We are heading to AofA next month. We're booked for a Cars Suite. Any thoughts on what building we should request. I'll be traveling with a 5 yr old and a 3 yr old and we'll have a double stroller with us. TIA

Building 1 and 3 are closer the the main building than #2. Building 3 will have lake views. If it were me I'd pick building 1, as I like building 1 on the Pop side for its location on that property. With a stroller I also like to request a ground floor room, as you can avoid negotiating an elevator.

We requested building one, pool view. Got our requests and were in 1531 on the ground floor.perfect location as we didn't have to deal with getting on and off the elevator with a stroller and we honestly didn't gear noise from the pool, entrance or elevator at night. Sometimes when back for naps we could hear the music but it wasn't an issue since our two year old was so tuckered out. Hope that helps!

Do they still have metal flatware in the food court or did they switch to plasticware?
