I'm interpreting this question to mean why isn't there a pool in the LK section?

If that's the question, this is a layout common across the Disney resorts, and especially with their Value resort design. One area will surround a main large pool, there will be one or two smaller (or "quiet") pools, and then at least one section will have no pool but a themed courtyard.

At Pop Century the layout is identical -- the parallel section to LK would be the 70's section, which has no pool but a themed courtyard. Pop has 1 main pool and two smaller pools.

If that's not the question, the LK section/buildings/room suites have the same setup and amenities as the other two suite sections (Nemo and Cars).

"Family Suite"

We are going to stay at AoA for the first time in August. My kids wanted to stay in Nemo, but it isn't included in the end of summer discounts. The standard "Family Suite" is. If I booked that option rather than choosing Cars or Lion King, could I put a request for Nemo on there an possibly get it, or do you think that they would still put us in either Lion King or Cars becuase we purchased the room with the discount?

My guess would be, since Nemo is so popular you will get LK or Cars. But no harm in trying, right?

I was thinking the same thing. Just because a room is unavailable during FD doesn't mean they are completely booked. So long as the Finding Nemo suites are available for your dates, there's no harm in trying.

I don't really have anything to add except that I will be checking in at AofA in 27 days! Myself, my mom, DS17, DS6,DS4 months(!) and my niece who is 9 will be there for 6 nights in the Lion King section. This was a request from DS6 who will celebrate his 7th birthday while we are there.

WOO HOO!!! 2 nights at Pop and 5 nights at AoA!

Can you tell I'm excited?
Did you get free dining?

We got back on Sunday from our 2 week trip to AoA. Our flight arrived at 6:30am- there were no LM rooms available right away so they offered to upgrade us to a finding nemo suite for free. I couldn't take their offer though- I have a little girl who loves Ariel and we have been waiting for those rooms to open!

We are arriving Monday around 9am and requested to have our LM room early. Is it typical for them to offer to upgrade you for free if a room is not available yet?

Highly unusual!! Rooms aren't 'technically' ready until 3pm. So, the only reason I can come up with for them offering that upgrade was that they had oversold the LM rooms!!! They made the offer hoping that someone would take the suite and leave a LM open for someone else.
I'm going down in 3 weeks, and while I would love to stay in a suite, my dd loves LM, and that's why I booked a LM room for our last two nights!!! No way would I make the change!!

I got my first pin code yesterday (yay!!!)...I think or it's the first one I've ever paid attention to and of course LM room is not covered in the free dining. How often does Disney send out pin codes?

I'm not going to WDW this year so it's OK, but I am going in May and I'm hoping I can get some kind of room discount when the packages come out even on the LM rooms. The pin code would be such a good deal if we were to stay at POP this year. Wow. Nice!
