When we stayed at Pop in June, they texted me, but it said we had to stop at the front desk to get our room info, but any other time, we haven't had a problem. I think some of the issue there was because we were traveling with my in-laws and had 2 rooms and both were in my name.

We just stayed at BWI 2 weeks ago and had done online check in, a CM was waiting as we got out of our van to escort us in and gave us our packet and our room was ready, we arrived around 12:30pm

I do know that test stays for cast members at LM ended yesterday, meaning they all checked out this morning. I would think with this being the case, there should be no wait for a room to be ready? Since no rooms would be occupied as of tomorrow morning, no waiting for test stay occupants to check out, then room needing to be cleaned, etc. They want those babies empty and waiting for paying customers! But of course, that is just me thinking logically, to myself, which does not always deem accurate, lol.

I hope you all have the time of your lives on your magical vacations! I cannot wait to see more pics and updates!!!!

With a full house moving in on the same day, that makes sense to me.

Oh! That is great news! I was just wondering how that would work tomorrow morning. We should arrive around 10 or 1030 and i was really hoping to get our room when we get there! Did anyone stay opening day of any of the other sections and arrive early?? If so how did it work??

I was thinking this same thing for all the guests staying on opening day. So I personally think your logic is great!! Lol. Too bad this won't be the case when I go in November. We are planning on arriving before check in time, but I am hoping with me doing online check in a room will be ready for us. (fingers crossed)

Fridge photo from jenaemmaFL

DISer jenaemmaFL posted her AoA photo album link a few pages back:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenaemma/

In the album was a photo of how the refrigerator is placed in the LM rooms. I thought I'd insert it here so we can see:

We are driving! Leave in about 3 hours! We are driving from Cincinnati, and we have 10 of us all together. This is definitely the most people I have ever road tripped with! But its all family we already know how crazy we all are! If all plans go right (which they never do on road trips...Lol..Especially with 10 people), we will be arriving at Art of Animation around 9 a.m.! Have a safe trip down!
