I love the shower too! So ready to sing..."Look at this stuff. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you say my collection's complete?" It takes singing in the shower to a whole new..uh..depth?

Okay, we are total goobs. Checking in on the 18th complete with LM shirts and dinglehoppers in our hair!

We stayed in Nemo on Aug 25th, and even though the room had been used, it STILL had the new room smell -- was awesome!

I will not look at the photos.....I will not look at the photos....must resist...only 2 more days ....I can do this.

Seriously I can't wait to see it but I'm going to listen to another poster that said to wait and be surprised in person. DD is going to be completely surprised and that I really can't wait for.

See you all Saturday morning - we're a family of 3 if you want to look out for us - dh is English (skinney and English pale), DD is 12, tan, slender with blonde hair and glasses- if she's not in her purple bathing suit she's in a dress!

Maybe I can see some Fantasmic fireworks if I get on an upper floor!

Also, are the rooms stocked with paper plates, napkins, silverware, etc? Just need to know whether to add them to my shopping list or not!

How is wifi?


Hope this picture helps.

I don't think I can bring enough of it on the plane for the whole stay, and I have no way to get to the supermarket! We have a few breakfast buffets scheduled (Tusker House, Cape May). Do they have yogurt containers or just yogurt in a bowl that you serve yourself? Thanks!!
They also have yogurt next to the cooking stations in the coolers...basic yogurt - purplish pink containers? Wider than they are tall? Sorry, we bought yogurt from grocery delivery, but I do remember seeing them.

Seven days? Have a wonderful time, you too, Marblies and Good Morning Dewdrop! We have to wait until late November...... DeeDee2197, we have the same number of days to go!

Thanks for the photos, JenaemmaFL, I'm really going crazy now because the bathroom looks so wonderfully magical! We have 73 days left and I better work faster on our trip shirts!

We were in building 8 (room 8644)..and actually I thought, oh, great, the farthest building out, ugh! But is was actually fine. I prefer being closer to parking and do not mind a view of the parking lot (haha) but if you like a view of the lake, it is farthest from parking, but it is beautiful. Distance wise, I really did not feel they make much difference between the 3..building 8 was a little bit longer away from the main hall, but only by probably 1 minute, tops. I am telling you, there is so much to look at, you won't even notice distance, but of course, I was only there for a day, lol. After a couple days, it might have gotten to me!

You guys are so welcome! You guys are going to be over the moon (or under the sea, haha) with the LM. I was truly, truly impressed. That bathroom was out of this world. My daughter did not want to get out of the tub, that is for sure. I am not sure I understand why people are saying they are not impressed with it. Maybe they should take a break and desensitize themselves, from all things Disney for a brief stint..I don't know. Anyone that can stand there, gazing at the wonderment I saw before me, and say they are not impressed? Boggles my mind but oh, well...leaves less crowds for us!

That shower alone is worth it to me. How immersive is that?!

We have 10 nights booked for October 2013 (yes, over a year away...) at LM but we are going to change it to 10 nights at POFQ and add a night at AoA LM before. We will just hang out at the resort for that first day/night and take it all in. My DH just can't do a full size bed for 10 nights. I am a bit concerned that after AoA, my DD (she'll be 4 at the time) will be disappointed with POFQ. Of course, we'll be at the parks every day so that will "soften the blow" LOL.

What section will you be in? Family Suites or LM section?

We will be in a family suite however we didnt pick a section (how we had to do it to get free dining plan offer) just put our 1, 2 and 3rd choice down but to be honest with y ou any of the 3 will be fine!
