Yes, I am fairly certain the movies are repeated each week for the entire month.

But wouldn't checking in online give us a better chance of getting our request granted since it will be confirmed we will be arriving on 9/15?

Does anyone have any further insight about online check in?
Have heard benefits both ways.I decided to do online check in because we are arriving at 10 and you do let them know when you are arriving that way.since it is opening day of LM Rooms it probably wouldn't matter but I still did it.

Just Arrived Today!!!

We got her right about 3:00 today (well, I guess officially yesterday since it is now 12:24!) We are in the Finding Nemo suites and LOVE IT. It is so cute and cozy. The pictures really don't show just how comfy the suite really is. And the colors aren't too intense for us at all. We ate at the food court and thought the selection was very big and the food was good. The portions were quite generous and it was a lot of food! The dessert choices were excellent as well. We had to take our dessert to go, because we were way too full.

The pool was super great. The kids adored it. We had a blast this evening playing in the spalsh part and swimming. I'm so happy with our choice of AoA.

The excitement is mounting here!!! Hope you continue to have a fab time! We are now discussing cameras, back-up cameras and chargers, oh my! Don't want to miss a bit of AoA.

Pictures for Maddie's Nana!

Photobucket finally decided to cooperate! I promised pictures for MaddiesNana! Here's the view outside the window of Lion King room #6610, "lake view". I'd call it Pop View instead.


wide shot



a closeup of what's across the lake



If any of you stay in Lion King building 10, courtyard view, see if you are in one of these rooms! I would have loved to have somebody take our picture "sitting in the tree", even k-i-s-s-i-n-g.

Laundry Info?

Hi All,

I'm looking for info on the laundry facilities. Does anyone know if they have detergent and dryer sheets for purchase (bonus if there is a price!). Also, where is the laundry located?

THANK YOU!!! 35 days!!

There is a laundry facility next to each pool, so there's three locations - Cars, Nemo, and soon Little Mermaid.

Laundry supplies are available for purchase, but I don't know the current pricing.

(My advice would be to look for a travel or small sized version of detergent and pack it with you. I've brought sample packs of All detergent that I got at a warehouse club.)

If you don't have free sample sizes, you can measure out laundry soap into zipper baggies. Soooo much cheaper. I also make sure I have a couple rolls of quarters for washing and drying. Even if you don't plan on doing laundry, you may get caught in a couple of afternoon downpours and need to dry shoes, etc.

The laundry room has a change machine.
I picked up single size packets of laundry detergent at someplace like Walmart or Target in the travel size section.

Did I read somewhere that the laundry machines are also on the RFID so I can charge it to the room?

That would be cool, but my guess is that the door to the laundry room is activated that way.

As for quarters, I take them because I do laundry at 5am when the change machine is sometimes empty.
