Could you tell me (or post) where you saw a menu? Thank you!

Yes, all value resorts have a fridge now!

However, ive heard mixed things from CM's.

Ive was told that you have to pay upon arrival/check in for the use of the fridge for 10 dollars a night payable in advance. (this was in March)

Ive also been told by a CM that yes, they are in the rooms and no charge.

Regardless they are in there, YES!

can someone answer though if they are charging for them?

Im kind of bummed if they are!!

No, they are not charging extra for the in-room fridges in the value resorts. We do expect the LM rooms will have the in-room fridges when the section opens.

I sure hope they are in there already with no charge! However, I am curious to see where they will be. The pictures of the LM room on the WDW website show the TV on a black dresser, as opposed to in a hutch/cabinet like the other values (also where their fridge is). The dresser does not really have a place for the fridge. I am anxious to see pictures of these rooms in September!

The LM rooms seem popular for DISers!

Are the Cars, LK, and FN buildings family suites only?

My choice because they are cheap! I get all the benefits of a new cool resort and a place for our 4 heads for almost the same price as the other values! I fantasize about AKL, but none of the other resorts on site have enough allure for me to spend that much to sleep (which is really all we do at the resort).

Looking forward to seeing lots of DIS friends opening week of LM!

We just got back from a 10 day Disney/Universal trip that included a 1 night stay at AoA with my 2 girls. I wish we had booked more nights there. We were so excited to try AoA and knew it would be awesome, but if we had known how amazing it would be, I would have sucked the price up and booked for at least 1 or 2 more nights!

Let me start off by saying, *photos don't do this resort justice!!* Wowsa! The most amazing Disney immersive experience on property to date, hands down. The color, whimsy, details, details, details from the theme, to the landscaping, room decor, public areas, pools, on and on is incredible. I'm such a sap, I really started crying when we finally entered our room and saw how amazing it was.

The ammenties of this resort are so very nice~ great lobby, arcade (tickets won from games can be redeemed for prizes), very cool food court, amazing pools, playground, amazing water spray park area, pool bar with refillable mug station and the Lion King play area to come seems amazing too!

I'll try to post some photos soon, we have some of food from the food court, room and outdoor areas.

The one sticky situation I have to share with everyone is one that concerns me. I'm wondering if anyone else has knowledge of this, if I'm the first to experience this, if I was just given a snow job, or what...

**Has anyone booked a specific themed family suite and went to check in and not be given the suite theme they booked?**

Here is what happened to us: I booked a Nemo family suite on-line. Mid-summer prices, no discount. Not cheap, but my girls and I were sooo excited to try the resort out. We did a lot of special and cute things for our stay there with Nemo themed everything. We get there early am from a different Disney resort and no one was in the check out line. Great! CMs were so wonderful, friendly and welcoming. Check in, no problem and our CM gives us our map with our room location. She's showing me how to get there and it registers with me that our room is in the Cars section....Wait, what!? I very politely asked her about the room and said that I had booked a Nemo themed suite on-line. She proceeded to tell me that it is only a request and never a guarantee, only a family suite is guaranteed. I was stunned. Not that I wasn't grateful to be there, but I *knew* my girls would be crushed. (They were sitting on the cushions while I was checking in.)
She said she was sorry but that Cars was all that was available. Again, being very polite, I said there is no indication on-line that it is only a request and that I felt it was a little deceiving that the website should explain this. Again she said she was sorry. I thanked her and proceeded to collect my girls...
Ok, my 10yo was sad, but ok with it...my DD14 starting tearing up, which surprised me. I explained to her there was nothing I could do and was sorry. We started walking out through Animation Hall and our CM walked after us saying she was able to get us into a Nemo room after all. Hmmm.....SO very grateful, but all of a sudden one just happend to become available? So now I'm really confused about the real "policy".
Is it true that when you book on-line (or on the phone for that matter), the section you book is just a request? For the future, for paying as much $ as the suites are, I'm not sure I just want to take a chance.
I would love to follow up on this one with others' experiences once all the sections are open and booked.

Anyway, we were when the CM told us to follow the EAC and just keep swimming to our room! So fun!

More to come....
Please let me know if you have any questions!
Beth

Booked 1 night at AOA LM room for April 12th. We are staying off site the rest of the week in a house we rented with family. I know I am going to be so sad to leave and go off property!! We get in at night too so we won't be able to enjoy the resort very much!

Lol...I kind of hope so...*but* I would have eventually been ticked off not to get the room we booked at the premium peak time rate if she hadn't "found" a Nemo room for us.

I don't believe the poolside drink station is open round the clock. I wish I had taken a photo of it. I believe it is only open when the Dropoff Bar is. It has like a rolling garage cover that comes down over it like the bar itself.
