I'm here now staying @ Nemo. So far so good!! By the way I overheard someone saying that he's at LM and the concierge told him the walk is 1/2 mile to the big pool. My FIL also staying at LM said its a decent walk.

Here are some pool/splash area pictures from our October trip that might help you visualize a little better.





You can see in this one the distance from the splash area to the pool.





Our kids loved the zero entry area.





Cousin's boys learning they will get an extra two days in Disney World, because the parents decided they just could bear to leave the next day.

2 questions: DVD players and room location request

We are booked in a Cars Suite, but really want a Nemo Suite. Nemo room was unavailable (at the 15% promo rate). Travel agent told me that I could indeed get a Nemo suite, but I would have to pay the full price. Do you think I can just call AOA and request the Nemo room and not be charged?

Do the suites have DVD players? I'm assuming they do not, because it's not listed under suite ammenities on the website and I also did a search on here and read that they did not have them (but the lastest post was from last year) so I was hoping that maybe they have added them since then?

When are you going? Is it during the current promotion? If so she can keep checking and one may come up. The thin with promotions is that they are very limited and it might be available when she quotes it, but with in an hour it could be gone. The Nemo rooms are most popular, so most likely less available. But sometimes they will release more rooms later on too.

We're going the end of this month. We booked during the 15% off promo. I've been checking everyday and the nemo rooms haven't been available (with the promo), but they are available at the regular rate.

Since you are traveling at the end of this month, chances are, none of the Finding Nemo suites will open up. Everyone has already made final payment on their vacations (unless someone has to cancel at the last minute). Also, the promotion that your vacation was booked under has now ended, so they won't be releasing any more rooms under that discount. There is still a slim possibility something will open up, if someone has to cancel at the last minute. You can always ask when you arrive if you can switch to the Finding Nemo suites. The Cars suites are very cool-looking, so you will probably enjoy staying in those, too. Good luck, and enjoy your vacation!

Oh, and no, they do not have DVD players in the rooms.

If you are going this month, that promo is expired then. It expired on Easter.

From the very back of building 8 in LM the walk is approximately a third of a mile. From the center of LM the walk is a quarter mile at best.

..... but after a full day at the parks, I'm pretty sure it was at least 10 miles.
