Just wanted to say, so excited. Already had a Lion King suite w/regular dining plan booked for my son's first trip (he'll be 18 months old!) but called today and got the free dining (paid for the upgrade to the regular dining plan) and saved $700 off my reservation. WooHoo!

Does anyone know when AOA will have free dining for 2013 or is there any projected dates yet for free dining for AOA? Thanks for any info on this.

Oh, yes, I'm still at Doctors. Your husband took care of my husband in the ER at Jack Hughston on Friday night, I thought he needed stitches after he cut his hand open on the van door, but luckily he didn't. I can't stay away from here or WDW, we stated at BWI and BWV in January for our Anniversary and took my inlaws and stayed at Pop in June (that was a disaster) so we are going back over Labor Day to make up for that trip.

Boy, the girls are really growing up quickly. We went to the Chik-fil-a bowl on New Years Eve this year in Atlanta, I'm not a big football fan, but it was fun. I have never seen the interstate so empty in Atlanta before. I don't mind Christmas at Disney, but the days after are really bad. My husband usually has to work most major holidays, so those may be out for now and with him being in the Army Reserves, we have to work around that.

There is no projected release date for Free Dining at any resorts for 2013 yet, they just released the dates for Oct to Dec.

That was wonderful. I have a question. How big is the safe? Is is the same size as the one in the other Value resorts?

Glad you get a "do over"! This may be our last blast, Kelly turns 18 next June, we will have to start paying a surcharge or booking two rooms! I looked into repeating our Dream cruise from Spring Break '11 for next June as a grad present, over $1K more for same category! Prices are getting nuts! Only discount I got this time was FD for the CR stay,no real bargain there!

I'm glad I get a do over, too. We are thinking about taking a cruise next June for my 40th birthday. The surcharge is minimal compared to 2 rooms, though. We have been lucky to get the Military discount this year, but there is no word what will happen after Sept 30th. We may have to cut back if there are no better discounts, even the AP discounts aren't as good as they used to be. Free dining isn't a great option for us, because we can still get a little bit of a discount on regular MYW tickets on post.

For those who have been there, I have a question. Can you get a mickey head ice cream bar anywhere on AoA property? Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on one of those babies as soon as possible when we arrive in October

I was there in June, I just don't remember if they had them or not. I can tell you that they do have them just across the bridge at Pop.

What are the peak hours for meals at the food courts? I know we will not eat at AoA a lot for different reasons (ADRs elsewhere, being in the park and having a meal there, going to another resort), but I am still wondering.

We will be there Sun. 10/14-Sat. 10/20.
