We are planning a family trip in May, after my oldest son graduates There will be 12 of us total. Since this is his one request, my immediate family wants to stay in a suite. The other family will stay in a standard room. This resort seems to be VERY POPULAR. Usually we book in January or Feburary for a May/June Disney vacation. Do you think we should book earlier due to the popularity of the resort?
SO EXCITED!!!!

I could not help myself and booked a LM room for Sep 28-Oct 1. We will be at POP from Sep 26-28, could not get a room for those nights, I thought it was strange that I was able to book a weekend, but, not a wed/thu I can see now that LM is very popular. DD will love the LM room, I cannot wait to see the look on her face when she sees it

I'm having such a tough time deciding between AoA and POP for our stay in March! I want AoA, but I really loved POP the one time I stayed. Decisions..decisions...I do have a six year old boy, but I don't think he would mind the LM rooms at all. The pics look so cute!

Question on LM rooms - on the map they look far from the main bldg and bus stop...has anyone been there and walked around? I'm hoping the distance is shorter when we are there...I know some resorts are so huge that it's a 10 minute walk to your room

People on different sites have measured it somehow and determined it is about a 1/4 of a mile. I read on disboards it seems like it will be a 5 min. walk. It was compared to a building at Pop's distance to the bus stop but I don't know which bldg.

They are still fenced off, or were at the beginning of June, but as a PP said, they looked to be about a 5 minute walk from the bus stops.
