I moved us to AoA today. I am a bit worried about the walk, but after seeing the Little Mermaid rooms, my dd has her heart set on it. I haven't told her I switched resorts yet. I seem to remember reading somewhere that POP and AoA will share buses?

I love that you can pay for a standard room at Pop and still be right next to the food court in the 60's building.
The more I think about this, the more I think I don't want to do all that walking. I really hope to read some first hand accounts once the resort opens. But I compared the online map of AoA with Pop and Katie and I were both concerned aboutthe walking.

AG Dolls aren't as Big here in Canada as they are in the US and the whole idea could end up being a big fat flop! Sigh... I wish I wasn't such an indecisive person who has to look into all possibilities instead of just picking one. Thanks for the advice!!!!! I am leaning more and more towards AG Doll
I hope you find something she likes. If AG dolls aren't a big deal there then I'd be really tempted to go with something less expensive. Katie really got into them for a couple years, but alas, that is waning now.

Thanks! I'm not sure the party really felt as "low" crowd as they told me it was going to be. It still felt pretty crowded to me, and I've been at some sold out parties before. I'm just thinking that having so much of Fantasyland blocked off and having Toontown closed really concentrated people in the parts of the park that were left.

Who, moi??????

Actually the problem is that I'm dying to get back to DL. I really think 2013 will be the year for that, especially if I've seen the new FL stuff this fall. The mine coaster might not be open until 2014 anyway.

I'd love to see an update on the bus stuff. I thought I read that wasn't going to be the case now. Man, I hope it's not the case.

I'll be a while before we can buy tickets. I need to see discount dates and make sure we don't have to change our week.

Thanks for the birthay wishes everyone! It was really too busy a day to really enjoy. It's going to be that way for the next couple weeks. Of course we found out last night his tennis banquet is he same night as Katie's 5th grade graduation. Of course.

This is the supposed to be the last week for tennis, so we're trying to make it to all the remainng matches. Yesterday was at Winnetonka (for my KC buddies). He won his doubles match and lost singles 9-7, so it was a good day. Very competitive.

Mike, did your son end up playing tennis? If so, how's it going?

FWIW....... I don't really visit the other Disney planning sites, but what I heard from the presentation the other day is pretty consistent with everything I have read here on the DIS for a while. BATB and LM in late 2012 and Mine Coaster late 2013 or early 2014. That's why I really want to be sure and catch the stuff this year. That delay for the Mine Coaster makes 2013 a great year to target for DL! It's been 2 years, and I'm missing it. I think I'll really appreciate Dumbo's vantage point behind the castle and the SW ride.
