Does anyone know if there is an extra charge for requesting a pool view room in the little mermaid area?

No, there are no differing room rates for the Little Mermaid rooms. So adding a request wouldn't cost you extra, but it's also not a guarantee you'll get that request.

For comparison at Pop Century you can specifically reserve, and pay extra for, a preferred pool view or standard pool view room.

You can call back to Disney reservations and ask to add a building request to your reservation. It won't be guaranteed but they do their best to fulfill what you want. They do add specific building number requests so you can ask for building 9.

I honestly don't remember. If it was anywhere near convenient, I would have taken it. Maybe it is too far to the outside of the resort to save any steps. We were in building 7 and always heading toward the bus stops and Animation Hall.

If I remember correctly they map makes it look like they come out right from the stairways but they don't you have to cross the grass behind the stairs to get to the walkways. Just slightly different.

If you leave a stair and try to go to the 'front' of the building 9 (towards the parking lot) you have to walk along the walkway to the middle of the whole building. If you exit to the back you can cut across some grass to get to the walkways and then cut back to the parking lot.

Not sure how buildings 7 and 8 are set up.

Red face anyone know for 2013?

we are looking into AOA for dec 2013 exact dates for pop warner but don't want to share resorts! We aren't sure if we will have 4 or 5 so does anyone know for both LM rooms Or suites?

No problems finding one after that either. I ended up booking for later in the month but would reallllly like something before the 9th. I was just wondering if the rooms would be released closer to Pop Warner or if this is completely unrelated. I'll keep trying (and also trying to get the military discount).

There are a ton of LM/AoA videos on YouTube that show walkways, landscaping, etc to get an idea of how it is laid out.

We are requesting a ground floor room close to the parking lot and I will have no problem walking through the grass to get to our room easier but will not walk over plants and landscaping for just a few more feet.

Can anyone be completely honest how the walk is from the main pool/Hall to LM room?

Not bad for us. 5-7 min. Only time it would seem to be a pain would be just to refill mugs I think. The walk is fun and I think it's a non issue.

POP Warner is always the second week in December....or tech, the first FULL week in 2012 ;-)

They usually fill up AS Sports and last year flooded over to POR we go that week every year, the weather is great the crowds are slow during the day moderate at night.

I will add though that they do not do discounts for that week, you could luck out and get a PIN code...but as for a general public discount it's never happened, always blackouts for that week
