Yes, the options during online check in have always been very limited. It is always best to call and have any requests added to your reservation.

The thread dropped to page 4. We can't have that. I'm at 64 days till we leave for sunny Florida. Weather here is cold with a small chance of snow on the benches. I'm already dreading winter!

Has anyone here experienced fastpass+ and magicbands? Rumors are November is now open for both. I arrive 11/30 but nothing for me.....yet, I hope.

Have a great day.

Yes, I was able to get both last night. You have to be 60 out though, so check back then!

Anyone care to share the best room locations for the finding Nemo area? I was thinking a water view might be nice, but is it far from the food court and buses?

Just did online check-in and was a bit confused by the "4th floor" and "highest floor" room request. The 4th floor is the top floor right? We are in the Nemo section.

Btw, I also customized our MB's and made Fastpass+ selections. So exciting! 59 more days!

We have a Little Mermaid room reserved. I know it's a good hike away from the bus stop, but I figure it can't really be any worse than being in the Country Western building at ASMusic during our last trip (which was without kids). Anywho, I was curious if there's really that much of a difference in distance between getting from building 7/9 to the bus stop and from building 8 and the bus stop. We have 2 kids (6 and 3) and I was wondering if I should request to be in building 7 or 9 to save us a few steps or just go with whatever.

None of the Nemo rooms would be far to AH, at least compared to the other sections. I'm assuming "water view" would encompass both pool and lake? Which would be a majority of the rooms in the Nemo section. If you are looking for a lake view, that would put you in the farthest part of the building from AH, but still closer than the people in LM, LK, and the farthest building of Cars.

If saving a few steps is more important to you than view or something else, I would request 7 or 9. Building 8 isn't THAT much farther, but you would have to walk around the pool, which makes it seem longer.

Just a guess, but highest floor may be to request the highest floor available at the time the assignment is made -- perhaps for those who want to avoid the ground floor but don't mind which floor that is.

Ok, that's what I was thinking as well. Thanks!

I was thinking about booking the LM rooms for our next trip, my little girl is princess crazy! But my husband is 6'4" does anybody know if the double beds would be long enough for him? Last time we did POR royal rooms , I think they had queen.

AoA December 2013

We're going to be staying at AoA in December 2013 just before our Disney Cruise.

I was reading through this thread (from the start) to see various tips and experiences everyone had.

There are lots of acronyms that everyone seems to be using and since I'm new to the forum I don't understand what some mean (others I kind of figured out).
Is there a page here on disboards that explains all the various acronyms that people use most commonly.

Thanks

This thread might help. If there's something that's not on there, just ask. Welcome to the DIS!
