Don't forget that you can order from the gardengrocer.com. They will deliver it right to your room for you. I'm going to try them this year for water, and decaffeinated Pepsi and decaffeinated Coke.

Wow, you're really bouncing around aren't you? I hope this all settles down and you get to go. Is your back getting better at least (I think it's you who has the bad back problem!?!? )?

All WDW pools are heated. I live in a cold Winter area and this is my first Winter/Christmas trip. I can't tell you how excited I am about wanting to swim outdoors in the end of November!!!

3 months to my trip!!!!!!!

No, no back problems for me, thank goodness. I do have a really bad foot, though, getting a second opinion on Thursday afternoon before we leave. Yeah, I am bouncing around, I usually do.

Bummer. My guess is that the LM doors are the same as POP - metal - but then we won't really know until it opens.

For those who had been to the LK section, can you tell me where in the building the stairwell and elevator are located? If you were by a stairwell, were the doors noisy closing?

DB wants to know and I promised him I'd ask.



Thx in advance.

Anyone know about the WiFi? My hubby is going to need it to check into work. His company will pay for it if there is a charge, but just wondering if there is and if so, how much?
I don't know about *upper* 80s, but temps in the high 70s and occasionally low 80s are fairly common in Feb. That said the pools are comfortable in the water at that time of year. They are heated. Id say the water temp was 75-80. Not super heated but nice. If there's a breeze it can be a bit chilly when you get out.

Both Finding Nemo buildings are right behind AH...Cars building 1 is the closest to AH out of all the Cars buildings.

See the resort map in the first post for more help.

Hello-

Just got back from my stay in a LK suite. I believe there are four stairwells in each building, one at each end, and one right in the middle near the elevators (towards the center of the courtyards). Our room was right near a stairwell and elevator and we experienced no problems with noise.

So excited I found this thread. Its been awhile since Ive been on the boards because things have been so busy. As much as I wish I could sit at my computer all day and research, explore, and dive into all things Disney its just not possible, but Ill take in all the moments I can
Our family has been doing Disneyland often since we live so close and have APs but we are so excited to have booked a wonderful vacation from:
Nov 28th - December 9th 2012 staying at Art of Animation.
Its been several years since we have done Disney World and so look forwad to coming back as we now have 2 new members since our last visit to share the parks with.....our 3 year old daughter and 14 month old son
Last time we came we stayed at the Boardwalk Villas and had a wonderful time!
For this upcoming trip we were able to get the free dining however we paid the difference for the upgrade from 2 counter/quick service meals and a snack dining plan that comes with the value resorts to the regular dining plan that gives us 1 sit down meal, 1 counter/quick serve meal and 1 snack.
We requested either the Nemo Section or the Lion King section of the resort so we are all super excited to get to stay at this resort.
I cant wait to see how our little ones react to the surroundings.
Thanks so much for the thread it will be part of what gets me by until we leave in 3 months

Good to know. I'll pass the info along to DB.

Thanks again!
