I love AoA. The theming is incredible. I loved just walking around the resort. All the different sections are incredible!!
Thanks for the info!!

If you are really worried I believe there is spray or something you can buy. Not sure what its called tho someone told me about it tho!
Disney would definitely take care if it. The troll comment made lol Im glad it wasn't just me who saw the review. Thanks for the reassurance

There almost certainly won't be any US public offer for free dining for August 2013 dates. The free dining offer open now for Disney Visa card holders, and opening to the public on May 9, is for arrivals starting Sept 2.

Disney could maybe mail/email individual PINs for free dining for August dates, but there won't be a general offer.

Room question- do the standard rooms at aoa have refrigerators in them now or do I need to request one? Also is there a specific building/floor I should request? ......

The standard rooms in the Little Mermaid section opened with refrigerators included. So you don't need to request one.

Generally buildings 7 and 9 are considered potential requests as they will be somewhat closer to the main building and buses than building 8.

Yes there are refrigerators.


If you want to be near the parking lot request 9 (Triton). If you want a lakeside view ask for 7 (Ursula). Building 8 (Ariel) is the farthest back from foodcourt.

We had a room in building 7, 3rd floor lakeview. Very quiet & no foot traffic.

Lion King is where the nightly movies are held so if you want to be near that then it's perfect. If you want a quieter room you can request non courtyard (not sure if that's what its called). Also people walk through Lion King to get to the Little Mermaid rooms so there is a lot of traffic through the courtyard itself. Since the rooms have interior hallways I don't think you would hear people walking back & forth a lot though.

I'm having a hard time believing the post but for my own sanity can someone just confirm that it's really not as bad as this person is saying. I mean if I were writing that I would try to make it as detailed as possible right?
We were there in February of this yr in the Cars Section building 3, 3rd floor, there was no bedbugs in our room.

I agree. I saw on the Today Show once that some chains/ other businesses even pay people to write bad reviews for competitors. The people who have done it talked about it.
