We are here now at AoA in the LM section. Ursula building #7. Our view is of the pool & last night we had the perfect view from our room if fireworks. What a great surprise that was!

Check in yesterday was a breeze & we arrived around 12pm (after 6 days at WLV) and our room was ready! The resort isn't as big & spread out as I had imagined. Everything is an easy walk away.

We ate at the food court for lunch yesterday & thought the food was really good.

Our room was spotless when we came in & we loved the theming. Everything is in top shape & we are so happy we came here even if it's only for 2 nights.

I would consider my family to be resort snobs but this resort has changed us! We just love it!!

We also went over to PoP last night & ate at there good court which we enjoyed as well.

Today we are going to Epcot so I'll report back on the transportation.

As for the linens. The towels are thin. Different from what we are use to at DVC & deluxe resorts but it doesn't really bother us. The sheets felt fine & the bed was comfy. I agree about the bedspread. It's hard to gold down & slips off the bed.

One other thing I wanted to note. We came from a 1 bedroom unit at WLV & we all like this room better lol. Yeah it's small but I can't see a family of 2-4 needing anymore than this especially if you are out & about all day. I was worried we would be upset with the size downgrade but we aren't.

sorry if this has been asked

I was told by the CM that rooms at LM did not connect. Was that not correct?

This is pretty much exactly how I felt about it too! There's been a lot discussion about length of walks etc, and even w my little one I didn't find the walking to be a problem at all. I stayed at CBR years ago without kids and remember being much further from the main hall. We used the busses along w a rental car- both were fine. The only difference I would add is that it could use a little more storage for bigger families. We had three total- but I knew of the storage issues ahead of time so brought some collapsible containers and a hanging storage bag - the type you use for sweaters. I was so glad I did.

LM rooms DO connect. We had connecting rooms in building 9 in October, but they are not guaranteed.

I just walked from LM to Animation Hall & it was a pleasant walk. I just came back here to add that in the LM section they had a cart selling drinks,snacks & breakfast items. I walked by quick but I did notice fruit, and some type of baked goods. Sorry I can't be more specific but I thought this was great for those who want something quick in the morning.

LOL, I actually find that quite amusing. The walk wasn't that bad to me, except after being in the park on my feet all day. And then it did change my decision making about breakfast, snacks and drink refills. Our refillabe mugs were almost worthless to us.

They really need to move ahead with the RFID chips in the mugs and add a drink station back there.

I loved AoA. It was a feast for the eyes. But I've seen it now, so I'll be returning to the Pop where I can pay for a closer standard room.

We had connect rooms as well - in Building 9 back in September - 1 was a king size bed and the other 2 double beds. I was surprised that we received our request and happy at the same time (even happier that my parents were in there and not the in-laws )

Have you stayed at Pop? If you have I'd go for AOA to try something new.

Cool video -interesting though how my room in the Ariel Building was laid out completely differently - at the least the bathroom area was.
