Call anytime between now and 4-6 days prior to your arrival and add those requests to your reservation.

We stayed in the lightning McQueen/ Sally building and had views of just trees. It was nice because we were on the backside so it was very quiet- no one walking by.

This may have been asked before but what are the closest Mermaid rooms to the main building? What is the distance? Also wondering how long are the buses to the parks from AoA? Thanks,

LM buildings 7 and 9 are closer than building 8. It's approximately .23 of a mile from the center of those building to the main building.

From AoA, here's the approximate bus travel (not wait) times:

HS: 5-7 minutes
EP: 7-10 minutes
AK: 10-15 minutes
MK: 15-20 minutes

Discounts for Nemo?

Hey everyone!

I've been lurking this thread for a while as we'll be heading to AoA this August with DH, DMom, DD2, DS4 and DS6. We're currently booked for a Nemo room as we really like the theming. I've noticed several discounts for AoA - AAA, GP, AP - but NONE of them have been able to be applied to the Nemo suite. I even called the first day the offer was out (right at 7 AM) for the GP and AP offers. The CM I spoke to said that because the Nemos were close to the main building, there was a greater demand for them, like a priority location, and so there were no discounts available. Anyone out there been able to get a discount on a Nemo suite for this summer? Folks over on the discount thread have said the suites (in general) aren't excluded but at the same time, I haven't been able to find someone who's gotten a discount.

it's not that the Nemo suites are excluded, it's that all the discounted Nemo rooms are booked up. There's only a certain # of discounts for each section and the Nemo is the most popular so is the first to become booked.

I haven't seen anyone getting a discount on a Nemo suite in the last several months (not saying it never happens...but I think it's rare). We were booked in a Nemo suite since last July (going in June) and we had to switch to Cars (or Lion King...we chose Cars) to get the summer discount. My Disney Travel Agent said that very few rooms in Nemo get discounted (she implied that it is literally less than 5) because those rooms fill up first and those buildings are at or close to capacity even without discounts. She's keeping an eye on things and if she can move us back to Nemo with the discount, she will -- a room or two *could* open up as we get closer to the 45-day mark. She also said it never hurts to ask if there are rooms available in the Nemo buildings once we check in.

Hello! We are very much looking forward to our stay at AoA 11/13-11/16!

We have a room booked at LM. We are not too concerned about the walk, but would like a room that's more on the quiet side of things.

Any suggestions on what to request? I know this is a popular family hotel, we are not grumpy people, just light sleepers!

Thanks!

Thank you for your help. A view of the trees wouldn't be bad, but we'd love to look out and see the pool or the Cars. What buildings have views of the cozy cone pool?
