Stayed at Art of Animation opening weekend. I loved it! Was amazed by all the *little* touches...the audio under water in the pool was incredible. Has anyone else seen this at any other resort?

Yes, the Poly & HRH at Universal Studios play music underwater in their pools.

4 weeks from today we will start our drive to WDW!! I can't wait to see the LM rooms in person. I have looked at all the pictures and videos, but I can't wait to see it in person.

This week we got our t-shirts from DisneyStore.com and the Cinderella Carriage necklaces I ordered for my DSD6 and I to use for Pick the Pearl.

Now if my MM would just arrive I would be all set!

Yes, there are--- but its kind of hidden near the LK section, and there are hardly any seats--- I definitely would not worry about the noise-

You can actually watch both sides of the screen. Its in the savanna right next to Mufasa on Pride Rock. its not noisy at all, we stayed in the 2nd floor right next to where it was playing & didn't hear any noise from it.

That's funny because we were on the 3rd floor and could watch out our window (the back of the screen) and it kept me up twice! One night was Camp Rock, though, so lots of music.

We haven't stayed at AoA yet, but when we've stayed at Pop, if our room is a bit of a hike to the food court/bus stops we used to leave the mugs in a locker in the pool area. The lockers are in the bathrooms at the pool (I'm assuming they have the same set-up at AoA -- if they don't, this won't work. ) I think it cost about $1 (maybe??? it wasn't much -- not like the prices at the parks) to rent the locker for the day so I would just take everyone's mugs and put them in a locker when we were heading to the buses in the morning. Then when we got back in the afternoon or evening, I'd run into the locker room to get them and we'd all fill up before heading back to the room. There were never more than 3 or 4 lockers being used any day we did this (even when we came back in the middle of the afternoon), so there were still plenty of them for people who wanted to store things in there while swimming (I seem to remember there being about 20-30 lockers in the room.). It was worth the $1 (or whatever it was) not to have to lug them around the parks (we don't use strollers or backpacks) and to not have to send someone back to the room to retrieve them when we got back to the resort.

Does anyone know if any of the LM rooms have a view of the Epcot fireworks like some of the POP buildings do? I'm thinking maybe building 7 or 8, top floor, facing that way?

I know the size of the safes have sort of been discussed but can/has anyone measure(d) them? I may bring my touchpad so I can keep up with my school work but I'm not comfortable just leaving it in the room. My Mom just had her purse stolen and she's fairly certain her mousekeeper took it.

My grandfather (who is in charge of the major planning and funding of the trip) broke the news that we may not be staying in Cars after all...I assumed he told them our Cars preference when booking, but it looks like a 50/50 chance between Cars and LK...

Can someone reassure me that LK will not be all that bad? It looks the least appealing to me out of all four themes...

I'm not sure what size your touchpad is but my iPad fit fine with some room to spare. The iPad is about the size of a sheet of paper, of course thicker.

It's probably about the same size. The one photo I saw of the safe made it look pretty small and since people said a laptop wouldn't fit I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

Finding Nemo Suites are right out of the food court area main building in Front . And Cars is off to the right so Finding Nemo would be the closest and then Cars would be the next closest in my opinion.

We stayed in building 9, room 9828, top floor. We were looking at part of the parking lot, and we had a perfect view.
