We are so excited!!
I saw that you were from Ohio and going to be there the same time as us, how cool are you driving or flying? We are driving and leaving 2 weeks from today.

I have never stayed in a new hotel before, isn't it exciting!!!

An FYI -- LM is FAR from everything -- even far from LK! They could almost add a new land between them! I was surprised by the distance!

Oh no! This is my only worry about staying at LM. Of course when I called Disney convinced me the distance wasn't bad at all. I hope it's not awful. I'm mostly just worried about nights when we might want to go grab a soda in the mug or something...

We're going March 17-23 and staying in the LM rooms. I worry that it will be too far of a hike, so I'm looking forward to hearing other opinions on that.

Awh well. I was really concerned about this at first, but DH and I decided to just relax and not worry about it, and to turn it around so that we're just enjoying walking through the brand new resort. I hope we can keep that mind set when we're exhausted!

The good news is, each pool has its own drink station. So you should be OK as far as that goes.

I am still trying to wrap my mind around this distance. Can you compare it to something? For example, is it like walking from the Castle at MK to the Ferry? I know it may be weird to ask but it helps me visualize the distance in my little brain.

We are driving! We are leaving Friday night and driving through the night. We are a group of 8 adults and 2 little ones. So among the 8 adults, and 2 cars we should be fine with driving through the night! We are so excited too! 12 days until we leave!

i am so freaked out right now! i booked my vacation in lm room for 10/17-24 and time just flew by. i realized at the beginning of the week that my money was due soon, but i just got a new job and didn't have time to put the money in the bank until yesterday.

i realized that my due date was today so i tried to pay last night online and got rejected three times. i called and tried over the phone payment (automated) and was rejected again, by this time i have knots in my stomach!! i called back and got a rep, it was rejected again! we tried a lower amount and it was rejected again, we tried an even lower amount and it finally went through. they gave me a 48 hour extension, but i just realized that monday is a holiday.

i am a nervous wreck that they are going to cancel my reservations!! i wont be happy until this is paid for!!

I went on Google Earth and measured the distance from the farthest LM room to the middle entrance of the man hall. It is .32 of a mile, which is a little more than a 1/4 mile.

Can anyone tell me how long the bus trip is from AoA to DTD? On our fly out day, our DME check-in time is 2:30. I'm thinking we will spend the morning at DTD doing some shopping and maybe an early lunch? Someone told me we would need to leave DTD by noon to get back to AoA??? Is it really more than a 2 hour bus trip? That seems a bit ridiculous!
