Does anyone know if there's a microwave in the food court? I'm thinking there's not but I'm not positive.

Here's a microwave picture from easywdw's Landscape of Flavors report:

Nemo Suites for FD

I started a separate thread, but in case people check here, FYI... for those, like me, who had to switch from Nemo to another suite to get FD for Nov/Dec, I saw Nemo was available online today and called and switched.

They underestimated the demand for standard rooms at AoA, and LM is going to be well booked for the foreseeable future, which means no discounts for most or all of us...
Yeah, I hear you. I think that they are going to be sorry that they didn't make some standard rooms in the other three sections, also.

We booked on the very first day last Spring also, but we were only offered a small % off of the room.

I booked with the Visa free dining promo back in March. My original resort was POFQ, then later, Little Mermaid became available so I switched.

The next FD Promo did not include the LM rooms.

I was talking about the November offer. The deal back in March was for August/September.

I can't wait to hear all about your trip!

17 days!

I'm wondering 2 things - is it going to be a complete zoo on the first day (15th) we'll be arriving around 10 am.....also wondering if since it's the first LM day if the room will be ready immediately (since in theory nobody else will be in it to clear out)...?

thoughts?

I'm so excited it doesn't matter if it's a nuthouse and it probably will be - I guess I'm just mentally preparing myself right now.

We check in on the 15th too, we are arriving Friday though and spending one night at Pop and then moving over. I'd like to go check in as soon as possible but was wondering what the crowd will be like.

Would you still be able to use the online check-in option? That might save some time at check-in. I would think they'd let people into those rooms as soon as they're checked in to keep the line moving.

I've been to AoA to just visit and my friend and I finally decided to splurge and stay there for a night this coming weekend.

How do the resort mugs work exactly? I'm assuming there's a fee...

So excited! Our favorite movie is LK so we're of course staying in the LK wing.

I had to put a dancing guy in for all of us!!!

We are having the same thoughts. Since we would arrive around 6am we have decided to stop and sleep, so we wont arrive until around 11 or 12. We were afraid if arriving at 6am nothing was open and if our room was not ready, we would not have anything to do and be really tierd.

We thought as well in theroy our room would be ready as it is empty, but decided not to take the risk.

I'm thinking there is no way they will wait and have us all check in at 3, now that would be a zoo!! I'm super excited as well, and the kids don't know we have added opening night before we go to CR.

The refillable mugs are available for purchase in the Landscape of Flavors food court. The last pricing info I have is they are $14.49 plus tax. The mug can then be filled as many times as you wish for the remainder of your stay. Beverage choices include soda, coffee, iced tea.

If you have a Magic Your Way ticket package that includes a dining plan (I am guessing you don't) then the dining plans include credits for refillable mugs, so you don't have to pay for them out of pocket.
