Add me to the list. Checking in. I will be staying in the Mermaid section April 11-15 with a couple Disney friends. I belong to a private message board group that formed from the AOL Disney message boards 3+ years ago. Some of us have met individually at Disney or other places but this will be our first group meet.
Are there any countdown ticker banners for AoA around?

We finally have AoA dates!! We are checking in on April 7 (my son's 7th birthday) to a Cars room for 7 nights. It's a surprise trip for the kids. I am so excited and have no idea how we'll keep the secret or not tell them!

6 days until we leave! 7 days until we are at AOA! My family is so excited! We are hoping for a drink refill station in the LM section, but if not then we will just deal!

Happy to help. I had no idea what depth a zero entry pool would be and figured I wouldn't be the only one wondering.

At one time there was rumor about free wi-fi being offered at certain resorts? Does anyone know if this is true for AOA? A few of us going take online classes for college, and would need the internet to be able to connect to the internet!

6 days until LM rooms for us!

There is free wifi at AoA but it is pretty weak.

I guess it depends where you are in The resort.
We were in room 5639 (finding Nemo building 5,second floor, right on the end overlooking the pool) and I could log into Disney-Guest or Guest-Disney.

They both were pretty fast (75 Mbps on Speedtest).

We did not get any cell service in the suite though -- had to disable it completely on our iPhones to be able to use wifi .
