We are booked for LM rooms in June - however, my GD is afraid of Ursula. What statues are at the other two buildings and will it be possible to avoid her for the most part?

Also, pool towels - are they provided?

Thanks,

The Ursula statue is huge. I'm really not sure if she can be avoided. Maybe someone else will have some ideas. Pool towels aren't provided, but you can take towels from your room and ask mousekeeping for more.

Can we say food issues?

depending on where your room is you have to pass her because she's right by the elevator (facing the courtyard pool area takes you by her and to get too the elevators from the courtyard means walking by her feet)

she creeped me out.....

quick question

We are staying at the in the little mermaid room for 2 nights in Feb but we have 4 days at Disney World (staying the other days with family in orlando) we bought the park tickets and resort package all togther from the disney site. My question is will we still have all the benefits like extra magic hours and such on the days we go to the park but are not staying at the resort?

If you aren't staying at the resort during the extra two days, you shouldn't get the perks (EMH, free parking, etc).

At least that's how I think it works.

No, access to EMH is tied to your resort room key, which is dated. This has nothing to do with your park ticket, even if they are on your room key.

You will still have resort privileges like emh on the day you check out, just not the next day.

Thanks,
The LM buildings are Ursula (building 7), Ariel (building 8), and Triton (building 9). The easiest way to avoid Ursula is to stay in the Triton building and enter the building through the first stairwell as you come toward the LM section.

If you want to swim/walk around the LM section, Ursula is unfortunately unavoidable.

Planning a trip for 15, four rooms. AoA is 97.20 more then Pop, where our family stayed in August. Is it worth it? Dh and I are leaning towards yes for the new hotel and new experiences, what do the experts think?

This updated value resort review by Josh/easywdw may be of use to you. He does still recommend Pop as the best overall value, but there's a lot of detail to consider for the best choice for you/your group.

That's going to be a very individual decision. We recently got back from a 9 night stay. I'm glad we did it. The resort is gorgeous, and staying there really is the best way to see it. If you're staying in the suites, then it's a slam dunk. Stay there. My only real issue was th walk from the Little Mermaid rooms. We're park commandos and were on our feet non-stop for 10 days. We'll be back at the Pop again next time so we can get a room closer to the buses and food.

We just stayed 3 nights in Little Mermaid and while the rooms are nice and we loved the theming, it is a hike to dining, transporation, and the lobby. If you have your own car and don't plan on eating often in the food court, you should be fine. If you are in one of the other sections, you will be closer to the lobby, but from what I understand, the suites are about the same price as a moderate resort.

You can go to the front desk and ask for towels.

I wish! They are actually quite a bit more than moderate resort. Especially when the mods have discounts....
