If they are anything like Pop, you won't have to call, they will put your bags in your room for you. That's what they do at Pop. That is, unless you have just left them and your room is ready right away.

I did online check-in...we arrive this Sat on 10/13. Our flight lands at 10:20AM. I am hoping to have the luggage and rental car and be on the road to the resort by 11:30, arriving around noon. We have a 1:15 ADR for lunch at Raglan Road over at DTD. I am hoping that noon-1 will be enough time to check in and drop off the luggage. Then, lunch and grab some groceries...and in the pool by 4 PM!!!

Now, if there are flight delays or airport delays or traffic delays, we will go straight to DTD and then get to AoA by 3:30 or 4.

I will try to remember to report on the check-in lines...

Thanks so much! If our room is ready, that would be great but I'm planning for it not to be because we are planning on getting there before noon. Maybe a little pixie dust will come our way. I would love to unload all the stuff in the room and unpack before we head to the MK. We are planning on staying for Wishes so I know when we get back we will all be pretty tired so I won't feel like unpacking at that point!

They take them to your room when it is ready. We checked at 8:30 am and ours were there when we got back from the park.

I have a question about condiments available at Landscape of Flavors. Are there jelly and honey packets? Mayonnaise and mustard packets?

Thank you!

Mayo and ketchup are in the dispensers that you squirt into the little white cups. Not sure about the honey and jelly.

The family suites at AoA (Lion King, Cars, and Finding Nemo sections) have kitchenettes including a coffee maker.

The regular rooms in the Little Mermaid section at AoA do not have coffee makers, similar to the other value-class standard rooms at Pop Century and All Star resorts.

About how big are the in room safes? Wondering what to bring in terms of electronics etc and not having to carry them with us all the time. For example - can I fit a laptop in it?

The safes are fairly small. I was able to fit my iPad along with a few small items (iPod touches...) in there. It is too small for a lap top. I would say that it's about 12" by 10 or 11" and only about 3 or 4 inches deep.

I would have thought the safes would be at least as big as Pop's safes and my laptop easily fits there.

Thanks! I stayed at CBR about 20 years ago and I remember them being about that size. I'm thinking that I'll just keep the laptop at home and stick with the smartphone.
