I have been less than satisfied with the attempts Disney makes (or doesn't make) to seperate smoking from non-smokers. This is an area they fall far behind in. I have been many places that do a much better job. I have 2 children with breathing issues and have twice asked Disney employees to step in when people were smoking while walking around, once in Epcot a supervisor was too busy pin trading w/a guest to do anyting about it and most recently at AoA while walking the entire way from LM to the smoking area near the food court. I asked two employees who did nothing but smile. I see this more and more and admit it has been since my kids have had issues, I'm sure it happened before but it never bothered me.

we have stayed at all the values except music and it does seem like there is a bit more space between the Lion king resort and the LM - making the walk a bit more. I don't know y, but it does seem long. We wouldnt stay there again because DH hated the long walk as did I just for a drink, especially for the little legs in the family

We'll be staying at aoa FN suite sep. 2013. I was wondering, can we order groceries to the suite (water, yogurts etc.)? If so, how is it done, and hoe far ahead can we place the order?

We took that, as I was nervous about the noise in the courtyard from the movies. And my older DD and I took a walk past last night. It is a bit loud. I also and glad I didn't pick a nemo room, as those rooms would get a lot of noise in the afternoon from the pool party. They had the music going pretty loud today!

Beautiful resort, though. Love my LK room.
Hmm ... I keep waffling on LK vs. Nemo. Others here have said the noise actually in the rooms isn't noticeable, but some do. Decisions, decisions!

Those who've stayed in FN rooms, what area would you recommend?

We are coming to AoA next November (just booked a couple of days ago!) we are staying in LM.
When I look at the map it shows the car park runs along side the resort so does that mean that we can just park our car up near our room and just cut through to our room or do we still have to walk through reception?

Distance makes no difference for me personally but I was just thinking it would be handy for the kiddies who would be tired after a long day at the parks.

We order from Garden Grocer. You just go to the website and choose your order and then choose your delivery date. Great service!

I think I'm going to request a room on the backside of the FN buildings....not the poolside. Although I also want to be as close to the food court as possible....just not facing the pool.

they deliver to bell services (they have a fridge) and you pick up when you get there. I've used them the past 2 trips, love them!

When to book?

Looking at November 2013 and we would like a LK Suite. Not exactly sure on dates yet so that is my delay. Definitely post Jersey week and pre Thanksgiving. Should I be trying to nail down dates?

Just got off the phone with a CM who insisted LM did not have connecting rooms He put us on hold quite a while after I questioned it and confirmed it. So I couldn't even request it. Did I lose my mind? They do have connecting rooms, right?

Went ahead and booked two rooms anyway. I know they can't guarantee them so maybe that's where the confusion came in? I know they'll be next to each other (or at least I have never had a problem getting rooms next to each other) so I am not too worried. Connecting would have been nice with only 2 adults and 5 kids though.

Wonder if I could call back and get someone else who will add the request....

Yes, once you are checked in you can park close to the LM section.

If you are going to get a car anyway that may make things more convenient for you.
