Love the looks of the LK suite. DH & I walked over to see AoA in May. It was so hot that day I wanted to just jump into that pool but I just cannot get past the no outdoor corridors or stairs. The little ones were having a ball in the pool though.
She will have to work around Brooklynn's fall break. I'm not sure what dates she is favoring. A lot will have to do with the flight prices, too. I know she'd love to meet you, if you overlap dates.

The Nemo pool is fabulous, isn't it? Kinda crowded, though.

We haven't done much yet. Pretty much we've just made it to the room.

I agree with Brooklynn's choice of the Lion Kings suite. I LOVE the Lion King!
I can't imagine! I not only like the kids to sleep, but I like to be asleep, as well! I'm not a good traveler any more, because my leg swells and hurts a lot.

I thought Brooklynn would choose Lion King, and she did.

Hate to start of with some heartbreaking news, but wondering if my dear dis friends could pray for a dear friend of mine. Today, at 30.5 weeks pregnant, my dear friend lost her little bundle. No news yet on what happened exactly, but I am just heartbroken for her.
You can always come here for good thoughts and prayers. It is certainly heartbreaking to hear of the loss of a much anticipated baby. A lady that sits in front of me at church had this happen with her daughter-in-law a few years ago. She was scheduled to be induced the next week, and on Saturday evening, she said she had not felt any movement all day. The baby was just gone suddenly for no apparent reason. Like I always say, our children are such incredible blessings. We need to keep that in mind even when they are driving us crazy, getting in trouble, being annoying, and everything else kids can do and be sometimes.

Still in the room.



An open fridge, for informational purposes. What will you fit in there when you try an AoA suite?



Cute accent lamp.



A few paper goods and some coffee were provided.



Can our bird-o-phobics stay here?



The table - as a table.



Bedroom nightstand.









Mickey in the carpet.



Time to leave the room. Jill's crew was going to swim, and I was going to take some pictures for a few minutes.

Good old Rafiki. I knew you when you were behind a fence covered in wrapping paper, and I wanted to rescue you!



Some of the food court choices.









The Cars seating area.



Into the Ink and Paint Shop.



Does everyone have their 2013 souvenir for this year?

One of these things is not happy like the others....



Retro shirts.



Fun for a boy's room.



A new supply of paintbrush pens!



Why can't Pop have resort shirts? Hmmmm???









Scrabble is my favorite board game.



I should have gotten Brooklynn a PNK t-shirt.



I had no idea who these guys were at that point, of course.









The arcade.



Outside, there were pool games going on.





Look who I found having water fun!

Thanks for the tour! I love shopping with you! Of course, when I go to WDW, I really don't have the same restraint I have when I'm shopping with you.

Looks like a great pool day!

Sweet girl! I can't wait to meet her. Just realized I haven't met her yet!!! We must fix this.

Tell Brooklynn good choice on the Lion King suite - that's the one I'd choose too! I just love the colors and that's one of my favorite movies. Honestly, I like all the theming at AoA but I think that's my favorite.

What a fun update, MeMom. Love all the little touches in the room...so very cute. And what a fun window shopping excursion!!!! Love the paintbrush pens.

Maybe all the resorts will start to get resort-themed t-shirts again? I know OKW has new ones.

Love the room décor! Bayleigh would be so happy there. She loves Lion King. That was the theme of her birthday party.

He got me the purple shirt with Ariel on it. I got all giddy when I saw it in your pictures/

nice assortment of food choices, some of them catch my eye.

Not a whole lot....... Probably some leftover pizza from Via Napoli, creamer for coffee, some zebra domes.........

I like the way the artwork on the table top lines up with the artwork on the bottom of the bed!

They really did go all out with the unique designs of the furniture, headboard, etc.........

Wow, there sure is a lot to look at in those suites. Did it seem much bigger than a regular room? It looks kind of crowded in there to me. I bet kids love it though.
