Looking great for LM!
Though I won't lie, very disappointed in the pool. They should have had Sebastion or something at least with some water effect going into the pool. But at the same time, there are other pools. However, considering its the only area with standard rooms, they should have done more theming.

Still excited though and can't wait to be there next week!!!! Happy to be one of the first to stay at the resort. Although I'm usually against staying at values, I'm sure I will not regret the switch this time as it really does seem to be a step above and it looks like it will be lots of fun to take a nice walk through the property, especially in the evenings!!!!

OK, I am not impressed with the LM section, especially the pool area.... Now I am thinking about switching my reservation to POP preferred location.

I'm with you a little bit on this. I dont love the pool. I'm a little worried about the distance from the main building. I'm just not sure now. The pool really has me reconsidering. I do love POP too so it wouldn't be an awful thing if I had to switch. Im really second-guessing.

I'm 99% sure the food court coffee is the same Nescafe as everywhere else.

Maybe this fact is coming from that the suites have in-room coffee makers where you can brew your own coffee that's not Nescafe.

We are really torn right now. We have never stayed at POP so either resort would be a new experience for us..... For now, I will keep our reservation for AoA. Has anyone confirmed that there will be a refillable mug station at the LM pool?

The mug station would be huge for us too! That would negate the concern over the distance to the food court. I do love POP, but I'm sticking with AoA for now too. I want to hear others experiences in the rooms before making any decisions.

I like the Little Mermaid section but the pool is a little off. I saw some night pics and it is gorgeous!! I have to say I think the Little Mermaid section is still better than Lion King with the exception of that huge tree branch with Simba on it!

I am looking forward to staying here in exactly 50 days!!!

Sigh. I have to admit I am a little underwhelmed at LM. I do hope there is a drink refill station as that will be its only saving grace for me. (Walking back and forth to the main building for a refill that would be consumed by the time I get to my room would be too much for my pooped feet to handle I think.) Too bad we leave in 17 days, if I had more time, I think I would try to switch our Ressie back to POFQ. Please don't flame me....I was just so excited to see Cars and Nemo and am very said that the ball seemed to be dropped on the last two sections to open.

LM looks kind of lame to me. While I agree with most that the LK section was underwhelming as well, having stayed there I think it's beautiful and serene. I think they dropped the ball on LM. Combined with the distance to the food court and buses, can't see myself ever wanting to stay there.

Ok this is a question for those that have already been.

1.) Do they have speakers in the landscape around the resort that play different songs or parts of the movie pertaining to what section you are in.
Like for instance around the LK section do they have songs play from the movie like "The Cirlcle of Life" etc or any sound clips from the movie (character talking parts)?
Just curious if that was something Disney did?

2.) Also for those that have heard the audio in the Nemo pool.....What is the audio? Is parts of the movie or songs etc? Or is it just radio music not pertaining to the resort?

I have always ordered food and water bottles from gardengrocer, but this year it's just my family going and I will only need water bottles. What is the best place to order from?? Costco, walmart, etc

I'm sorry so many are disappointed in LM. At least those coming after will have a more realistic mind set. I know that AoA LM rooms are not priced too far off of the other values so I wasn't really expecting much at all. Hopefully I'll be happy with the food court which is kinda why I booked there, well that and I only needed a night before I checked into my Mod.

Its just tough after making an exception for this resort even though it was a value, and now to be somewhat disappointed. Part of me would rather switch to POR because I LOVE the boat service. Huge time saver when needing to get to DTD for transportation reasons for Dinner reservations. Unless the buses are good at AoA??? Or even switching back to Caribbean Beach which we originally were booked.

I dunno what to do now, part of me wants to switch
No, I can't.....don't knock it until you try it! It will be nice to be one of the first to ever stay in the room and maybe I will end up loving it still

I placed an order with Walmart a few days ago. The total was $13.35 for 3 cases of water. Hopefully the water will be there when we arrive.
