We are not switching either due to having out heart set on a Nemo suite. We stayed at POR last year and really wanted more of a kid theme. Our kids are 11,9,7 and 4. We figure we can always stay someplace with a discount when they are older. Plus our week wasn't included in the FD and I already had every ADR we wanted plus BBB and Pirates league and we would have had to sacrifice Be Our Guest and CRT plus others if we switched now.

But it is part of the room-only discount. People can book with the discount and still add tickets & dining. It's called "room-only" to indicate that the discount is on the room portion of the package only, not on tickets or dining.

You may still get a discount - don't despair!

Did exactly that for our trip in November. Saved about $250. Not free dining, but that money in my pocket helps!!

I stayed in LM for 1 night last year and it was a loooong walk, but our room was about as far as you could get from animation hall. I would request a room closest to animation hall.

Am I the odd one out that I hope that AoA becomes a test resort for the Magic Bands for September?

We were the same way for our trip in June. We booked a Nemo Suite in July 2012 for travel in June 2013. We decided we were staying at AoA with or without a discount. We were traveling as a party of 6 (in the suite) along with my DS and his girlfriend (they booked a LM room). When discounts came out of course the LM rooms weren't included (but my son decided to stay there anyway) and the suites were only a 15% discount on room only...but did not include the Nemo suites. At that point, I did decide to switch to a different section to get the discount because it saved us over $500. We weren't dead set on having a Nemo room so it wasn't a big deal to switch. We were sprinkled with Pixie dust and ended up with a Lion King room that was about as close to the main building and bus stops as you can get. We most likely would have had a longer walk if we stayed with the Nemo suite.

We are booked for next August in the Lion King suite and pretty much NEED to be at AoA since we have 5 people. Of course we'd LOVE a discount, any discount, but it gets too expensive not being able to stay at a value resort.

Well our family opted to pass on the free dining and just stay at AOA. Yes it will cost more b/c no free dining but we love the looks if the resort. This is suppose to magical vacation so AOA it is for us 😁

Two rooms at some of the mods can be less expensive than an AoA suite.

We can't do 2 rooms, our kids are 5, 7, and 9 so we need family suites.

I wouldn't want 2 rooms for my family of 4. I want my family in the same room for a week long vacation.

Is there a way to get a building layout ?
I know it's a longshot, but at POP and other resorts, I've always been granted rather specific room requests (from a room number range)

So, for example, if I'm staying in LM building 7, I know that 75xx will mean building 7 1st floor. But what about the room numbering ?

where is room 7501 for example (towards food court, path side, or lake side / towards building 9 pool/lake side, or on the wing pointing towards POP)

hope my question makes sense.
I've seen such a map for POP but I was wondering for AoA

TIA
