We're going in 2 weeks and its a pretty low-moderate crowd week. The LM rooms are always sold out, they are in high demand. I dont think any other sections are sold as i just booked one for a client the other day

Hello! This is my very first post, although I've been lurking for awhile. We have reserved a Finding Nemo suite for Thanksgiving week. We are so excited! This will be my 4th time to DW and our 2nd family trip. I love Disney planning and these boards are great!

You should be there after Spring Break, so it should die down. But from what I have been hearing, this whole year has been more crowded than previous years, even the slow weeks. That being said, the LM rooms are just selling out fast because they are new and not many of them. I think in the next year or so, they will be open more. The distance is very far for most people. I know other resorts have rooms just as far out, but these seem even further as you have to walk outside.
I don't mind walking, but the inconvenience to the food court for the refillable mug kind of annoyed me. This really did seem further to me than others and I stayed REALLY far out at AKL. But walking inside made it feel better or shorter.

Can you get an adjoining standard room with a family suite?

No, the standard rooms are all in the LM section. There are no suites in LM. The other buildings are all suites.

That's a bummer
We're planning a trip with a three older toddlers and three adults, one being my MIL. Do you think we should just go for adjoining rooms or put us all in a suite?

I'm so worried b/c I need 2 rooms and did not anticipate them being filled this far out.
Just check (what some would call) obsessively! I have been checking 3-4 times a day because they were sold out one of my two nights. It just opened up tonight and I snagged it! It really pays off to keep checking!

mybatmobile87- Just curious how close to your arrival date those nights opened up? I'm really hoping I can get those rooms sooner rather than later. I know at the 45 day mark some people cancel packages so maybe that will work out.

I booked a weekend trip on a whim, so there's not much time until my arrival. I originally booked on 3/24 for a stay on 4/20. I was actually a bit surprised to see anything open up this close to my arrival. I'd expect most would open up right around the 45 day mark.

The suites should accommodate your party.

If I were you I would price out the difference between one suite and two standard rooms. Depending on the dates for your trip, two standard rooms are likely to be less expensive than one single suite.

The other consideration is if you want rooms or adjacent/adjoining rooms. Connecting rooms have an interior door between the rooms, and these are by request, not by reservation. Adjacent rooms are next to each other but don't connect inside -- these are also by request. So a single suite doesn't have this factors if you all need to be together.

We were there a few weeks ago, I wished we were still there!!!
We stayed in a Cars Suite, we loved this place!!
IMO, I do not think the Mermaid section is that far from Landscapes, but I am used to walking. If you are planning on taking your food back to your room to eat, you might want to ask for it to go, & they will put it in boxes instead of the bowls & plates that they have, this is real stoneware, so it can get heavy carrying it to your rooms. Everyone is extremely nice & very helpful. The buses start at 6:45 am. We did not have any problems with the buses, but of course we went at a time that the resort level was a 4-5. The parks did seem alot busier than that though, I talked to a CM & they said that alot of Florida residents was coming to MK to see the new FL, ( This was the only Park that seemed packed to us). We were able to ride everything we wanted with little wait, except for the things in the new FL, we just skipped FL after the first day, the long waits IMO was not worth it when there was so much more we wanted to do.
We checked out each section of the resort, very nice, now this might not be the resort for the ones that like a Deluxe Resort, but if you have children, they will love it. Would I stay at this resort again, YES!!.
We were in building 3, on the 3rd floor, with a view of the pool. It was not noisy, I have seen were alot of people do not like a pool view, at this section, it did not seem to be a problem with noise.
Towels for the pool, you will need to take the ones from your room, just call room service for more towels. Our maid, Belgila, was very good, & she made animals & flowers for our darling daughter, she loved it!
A pic of Mickey Mouse was left for her also, she thinks Mickey left it
A young man in Landscapes sang Happy Birthday to my Daughter when I was getting a smoothie. It was a wonderful trip.
