I don't know what the offer is. But wanted to point out that mousekeeping no longer leaves the bounce back offers in the room. If there is one, it will be in the packet you get when you check in. Some people have reported not seeing it until they got home and missing out.

thanks

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!
Thanks for the info. When should I submit requests? When we arrive at the resort or prior? If prior, how soon before arrival? TIA

Anytime from the day you make your reservation up until 5-6 days prior to your arrival.

Just a quick review on our recent stay. We were at AOA in a LM room from 1/12-18. I requested a king bed and am so glad I did because our friend's room with two fulls was a little cramped, but we had plenty of room. I didn't request a building but we ended up in building 7 (Ursula) with a lake view and it was very quiet, except for the occasional luggage cart rolling by.

We tried out the LM and Cars pools and they were definitely not heated, though maybe because it was in the 80s while we were there?

As far as the thermostat, I didn't have a problem with it not going below 68 (we kept it at 70 most of the time), but the room did get warm overnight. I usually ended up getting out of bed at some point to wake up the thermostat and get the air moving again.

The walk to/from the buses/Animation Hall was a little long at times, but I think if we hadn't just run a marathon I wouldn't have minded it. There were a couple times where it felt like the buses for every other park were coming but ours, but overall I had no qualms with the transportation.

Overall we were pretty happy with it and felt it was a good value. I'd definitely consider staying there again!

Is it best to call to make the request? TIA

Which building do you think would be the closest to the buses?

No, so far there is one rate (for the respective season) for all Little Mermaid rooms regardless of bed, view, location, etc.

For LM section, it appears building 7 may be closer. Building 8 is further away than 7 or 9 for sure.

Really none of them are much different. That's because all access to the building is from the center of each building. Yes, they have exterior doors, but there is no sidewalk from the room through all of the landscaping. You have to walk back to Ursula herself (in the middle of the building) to access the walkways. Our room was near the end of the building. So we had to walk from the end back to the middle, then past the end again...... just to leave.

I forgot about that -- I read this previously in the thread. That's pretty annoying. I like a ground floor exterior room so I can avoid walking to the middle for an elevator...guess it's still Pop for next time then! Plenty of shortcut walkways over there.

I really was astounded at the lack of walkways. It sort of just added insult to injury with that long walk. I bet at some point they will change that. It's just too stupid to leave it the way it is.
