Here's what I don't get about the planning of this resort. Why not make the standard room section one of the more gender-neutral movies (Lion King or Nemo) so that families of four with boys don't feel like they have to upgrade to a suite to avoid a Little Mermaid room?

I think the point of the resort was to be a family suite resort mostly. There are other resorts to stay at if you don't want a suite and don't like LM.

Those are awesome! Really excited to see these pics! One question: We're currently booked at AKL for 9/16-9/22. I really want to switch to AoA. Why didn't I just book it??? Kicking myself SO much! I know no one knows for sure, but what do you think my odds are to be able to switch to AoA with free dining? Maybe some pixie dust will come my way

So we're only staying at the Poly for 8 nights. If it's gonna be on credit, might as well make it worthwhile. 2012 - Back to the Poly for 10 days 2 adults 3 kids 2013 - First AKL stay only 5 night 2 adults 3.5 children

Sorry if I wasn't clear, family of four = two kids.

Standard room only hold 4 so a family of six would need a suit or two standard rooms .

Are you booked with FD Now? If so call speak with guess services and see if there is any availability at AOA.

I was wondering this also. We're a family of 4 with boys, and I would love to stay at AoA, but we don't need a suite, just a standard room. As much as I love LM, there's no way DH and our boys would agree to stay in a LM room.

My DS6 loves LM, he also loves sleeping beauty, and bueaty and the beast. The only princess movie he finds girly is Cinderella, as there is no action! If you show them the pictures of the rooms their nopinion may surprise you...
