We were there April 6th-13th and even though they had a sign out, I never saw any indication of breakfast or beverage station by the LM pool or anywhere in the courtyard.

We mostly ate breakfast I mour room but I saw this sign when we were checking out the Little Mermaid section:

Planning on staying there next year. I guess I should make DH and DS's aware now that the walk from LM to the bus/food is 10 minutes.

We stayed there in December and they did this at least two days out of our 6 day stay. It was coffee and muffins, if I recall correctly.

Anyone know if AOA/Disney has free local calls in the rooms? I want to call home using a calling card, but need to dial a local access number first.

We were there April 15th to 18th and it was right outside the LM pool. It was AWESOME. They actually had REAL coffee. Sorry for shouting, but it was so great. I actually counted the steps from our room, 70, and couldn't have been happier. I had no line 2 days and about a 6 person line one day. Both times out at about 8:30.

This was there last week during our stay. You could fill refillable mugs and get muffins and other light breakfast items. Seems to me they should do this in the afternoon as well, but we only saw it in the morning every morning.

We are booked at AoA and I was waffling between a value and mod depending on discount (specifically FD) but have decided even if it is a 100 or so more I would rather be at AoA. Between the bigger bed, two bathrooms and not having to take a bus to get to a pool, it wins out over the cabins. Sorry DH - no hot tub for you lol.
Confirmed. Breakfast only.

I just gotta say, I'm loving this breakfast and coffee cart talk about LM. Now...free dining offered in early oct + LM not excluded = HAPPY DISNEY PLANNER!! Unlikely, but I can always hope
