You are correct regarding the Disney Visa pre-offer and general public offer that were released the week of July 12, 2012. LM rooms were not available for those promotion codes. However, there are still active free dining PINs out there where LM rooms are available for FD for the same set of arrival dates in Oct-Dec 2012.

I don't know that there are any quiet pools, but the smaller ones are more likely to be quieter (from what I assume).
You are correct -- Disney uses the term "quiet pool" to describe the other, smaller pools besides the resort's bigger "feature" pool. So the Cars and LM pools are the "quiet" pools. Unfortunately not all pool users get that memo to keep it quiet.

I don't know how new it is but Janet has been reporting on the Pop thread the availability of a rollaway. I think she called to verify, I want to say.

We just booked AoA for our June 2013 visit. We're in a family suite in the Cars section. The resort looks amazing! I can't wait to go see it in person!

Quiet pools simply mean they don't have any slides/fountains/water features etc., not that you're supposed to actually be quieter there.

That's good to know because my bunch sure can be loud in the pool. I'm always telling them to tone it down! I bet they are quieter in general because more kids want to go to the pools with the cool features.

I've taken my Keurig on every trip to Disney even to deluxe and DVC resorts but especially value resorts. My daughter says that I'm uncivilized without my coffee in the mornings. No one has ever told me I couldn't have it in the room. I don't hide it and I have never unplugged it.

I can't believe I totally missed this thread! We're staying in a LM room in December.

I posted this on the other thread, but I'll repost here. We're booked 12/7 to 12/16. I still need to add 12/6. If anybody drops changes their dates and drops the 6th, or sees the 6th available, I'd love to have a heads up! I really hoped one would pop up when the GP FD came out last week, but no such luck.

Can't wait to see more photos as that section opens!

Connecting Rooms

Just wanted to weigh in the those asking about connecting LM rooms. They do have them.

We booked two LM rooms. We do have small children, and were told we have guaranteed connecting rooms. (I know, I know, nothing is really guaranteed, but when I booked they told me this and I called to confirm and they told me the same....so....we'll see.)

We will be checking in 9/30!

My kids prefer these in the moring!!

I have to give it to them though, they are delicious!!

According to a menu I just saw, yes you can get them. They did not have them listed as a kid pic, only on the adult menu with a fruit topping option.

116 days away from our trip to AoA!

May I ask what area of WDW Art of Animation is located in? (Trying to plan a nice dinner close to the resort) Thanks!

AoA is right next to Pop Century in the southern-middle of the property. It's close by to ESPN Wide World of Sports, if you know where that is. It's also nearby to Caribbean Beach Resort.

Disney's Hollywood Studios is to the west and it's the closest park. Next closest park is Epcot. You will need to take transport wherever you are going from AoA/Pop.
