68 winter
70 summer

Just wondering for those who have stayed at AofA LM rooms where is your favorite room located? We will be there in September. We were there last September and the LM area was still under construction. Is the landscaping done and grown enough that it blends well with the other parts of the resort? I am so excited about getting to stay at this resort. We have stayed at Pop 4 times and watched this resort being built. Love all the inforamtion I get from these boards.

This is probably the only value I would stay at, reading by the wonderful reviews. Actually, it seems better than some of the mods I've stayed at! It seems like such a cool resort and its just very well themed. I would definitely consider staying here in the future.

We ended up driving over to bus stops - that walk back to the room at night after being in the park was a killer.
I agree the difference might not seem like a lot but it is! We were in the Ariel building at the very end of the hallway 3rd floor. I would request building 7 or 9 if you are staying in this section.

I suggest the king triton bldg. it is closest to the bus stops.

I haven't heard anyone else talk about this (probaby cause I notice the strangest things...)
hubby didn't have this problem, just me..the toilet paper holder in the LM bathroom is openended. so many times whenI went to tear off the toilet paper, the roll went flying off the holder!
anyone else have this happen?

Thanks for your review. I've been pondering our next stay and was afraid of the distance from LM to main lobby.... still not sure, though! We loved asmo.... we were in dalmations section and it was just awesome!

Thank you for your review. We are headed to AoA next year and are trying to determine between two LM rooms and a suite. So excited. Can't wait!

Here are the distance numbers for AoA based on printouts of Google maps Sat view. From the AHall-East door shortest route in feet:
700 to bridge. 250 across bridge to POP shore to shore.
300 to S tip of LK 200 more to center of LK area
1600 to northern most tip of LM
1000 to southern most tip of Cars
2600 total from N tip of LM to S Tip of Cars

528 ft is 0.1 mile
Walking time for that is 2 min at 3mph or 3min at 2mph

Each lodging block is 200ft so a triple block complex measures 400x200

One half mile is 2640ft

You can do it! Enjoy the beauty and charm of the resort along the way.

Longest distance at the ALL STARS is at MUSIC 1400. Longest at the other two is 1000ft.

In hotel rooms, at least ones with the window units, I crank it up. It never seems to cool right to my liking. Maybe at Disney its just the FL humidity. Glad to hear the motion sensors at AoA weren't a huge deal, because that would be a deal breaker for me.
Ours is also new construction and energy star certified. After our house they started using smaller air conditioning units for the new builds. I'll tell you why. I put ours on 70 or 72 and it is cold to freezing in an hour. The thing is a powerhouse. I don't get it, but I'm not complaining. I don't ever have to run it all day until we get a major heat wave.
So I'd say I keep it at 70-72 in the summer, and 72 or so in the winter.

Haha, thanks for all the responses about thermostats at home...now I wonder if people are too hot when they come to our house. I think when we have guests over now I will crank it down!
