Unfortunately not. Just the suites are.

I'll be staying in the LM section for my trip in February. Sooo excited!

Does anyone know what time the food court opens for breakfast?

Thanks!

My partner and I will be staying in the LM section of AoA for 8 whole days in December. I'm so excited! I opened a Disney Visa not too long ago, so we were fortunate enough to get Free Dining even though we aren't in the family suites.

I've already requested a king-size bed, but I'll probably call 10 or so days before to check on that and to ask for a room with a view of Hourglass Lake (instead of the parking lot - ha!) and preferably closer to the Lion Kind (and everything else).

I like that there's a bridge connecting Pop Century, since I've never visited that resort. It will be nice to wander around for a while.

This is our first time going to WDW (so excited!!!). Who do you call to make room requests? I would like to request a certain building if possible, but have no idea how to do it!! Thanks!

Did the FD offer come as a serendipitous pin for you or as a direct reward for opening a Disney Visa? I am anticipating falling in love with LM during our Sept stay and wanting to return in Feb to the same resort and would only be able to manage that with FD. If it means opening an account.....

My TA made a request for us, all I wanted was not the ground floor. However, she said room requests are just that, requests. I am still hoping for a room not on the ground floor.

How long is the walk from the bus stop to building 8 of The Little Mermaid? It seems like a very far walk and I wanted to plan for it accordingly JIC! Thanks!
It is expected to be a shorter walk than it would appear, likely 5-7 minutes at the most.

The creamer dispenser machine is half and half. I don't think there are any creamer packets.

Are there cabanas at the Lion King and the Cars pool? Will there be any around the little Mermaid pool do you think?

The cabanas are at the Cars pool, there is no Lion King pool and I don't think there are any at the LM pool, but I haven't seen pictures yet.

It's my understanding if you received a pin number in the mail you could get the FD for the LM rooms...that is how we got ours for November. However if you didn't get a pin and just go through the regular booking process online the LM rooms were excluded from the FD plan offer. Maybe this will change for when you want to go!

Except for those of us who booked last Spring for Sept. LM rooms were included then. It is the overwhelming popularity of the LM section that may keep it off the FD list for future offers.

The menu at the food court looks good, but my ds (18) likes chicken strips, pizza and hamburgers. Do they have any of these items in the food court????
