No only LM. But they will have drink dispensers by the pool.

I am thinking about booking the LM rooms for May 25-31. Should I go ahead and book, then modify if a special offer comes along? Or should I wait until the Spring offers come out? Since it is a new resort and offers may not be available for AoA, I am leaning towards going ahead and booking now.

I would definitely book now if your heart is set on a LM room.

Yes I posted a few pictures on the AoA picture thread earlier today. I took them through the fence. As far back as it was, I couldn't see the pool at all.

To be honest, I kind of wish I hadn't seen every detail ahead of time. By the time we got there, it was somewhat anti climactic. "Yep it looks just like the pictures." On the other hand, DS 14 had asked me not to give him too much information ahead of time because he wanted to be surprised. His reaction was :0

Is there any other sections that will be opening up standard rooms later? Thanks!!
Little Mermaid is the last section to open, and the only section with standard rooms. It does have its own themed pool.

This is the second post today where I've seen someone mention the speculated drink refill station in the Little Mermaid section. Did we get better confirmation there will be one?

Last place I left it, I was thinking the section needed to open before we knew for certain LM would have its own drink station. Until we get some first-hand reports, I'm leaning toward there won't be a drink station, sorry.

When I called at the end of July to pay our balance, I asked about the drink stations. She said that they were told there would be a satellite drink station near LM pool. I know that info from CM's is not always reliable, just sharing what I was told.

If you really want an LM room and you're sure of your dates, I'd book NOW. LM seems to be the hot ticket in town!

We're not sure if this is true, but I sure hope you're correct. It would be wonderful if they did that and maybe they will since LM is the furthest away from everything. Let's just keep hoping!

Ugh! They sure are making us wait for anything Little Mermaid. No pics, no sneak peeks and only 13 days until opening!

We're checking in to LM on opening day, and I'll definitely post pictures!

I really do hope this turns out to be true when they open the LM section. Even if the walk to the main hall isn't as far as it looks on a map, it'll still be nice to have drink refills by the pool.

Congrats!!!

Since I'm a teacher, we can only travel during "holiday" times which means codes are never valid for our dates. We're not paying that much to begin with, but it sure would be nice to save even more so we could consider MVMCP or another special event

Does anyone know if there is a thread yet that has pictures from AoA that other members have taken?
I really want to see pictures other than what Disney has on the WDW site

I posted LM photos on the "post art of animation pictures here" thread. Sorry I can't link from my phone.
