One would think they would have done singles in the other areas too... Seems rather restrictive.

Any hoo... anyone know if the singles at LM are blocked for AP's?

Thanks so much!


Not only are the AP discount rooms likely gone (if there were any to begin wit) but even the full price rooms could be gone. That section is very popular as a way to experience AoA without paying for a suite. It's the only way we're going to experience it since we're a party of 3 and don't way to pay the highe suite price.

I've been following a lot of the progress of the LM sections for a LONG time, but had my first GASP! moment when I saw the shots of the inside of the showers! Those are too cool!!

Thanks!
No coffee makers in the LM rooms.

The two beds are double/full size, not queen. We don't know for certain yet but there should be some rooms with a single king size bed as there is at Pop Century. You'd need to make a request on your reservation to see if one of those rooms are available.

Here right now, the hotel is really great- its everything that previous posters have said! You will not be disappointed!!!
We have had 2 glitches, (don't want to call it problems)
1. The Internet is pretty bad, so bad I was using 3G instead-I couldn't log on, then I called and they reset the modem.Better but It's very slow.
2. We stayed at Magic Kingdom last might for emh, when the park closed at midnight, we found the bus line loooong. Like it took 5 busses , before we got on one. The problem was it took almost an hour to get on the bus!! I have never seen it like this. We were the one of the last resorts left, us and pop!!!! I mean the other hotels lines were gone for like 20 min and we still had long lines!!!!! Finally after a few people complained some more buses came( after 1am!!!) I'm hoping it was a fluke, I have been to Wdw many times and this was a first. I was gonna call and complain but after this post I am gonna forget it, (it was very stressful)That was only one thing and I'm sure it was just an isolated thing.
Everyone have a great vacation!!!!!!

You can check in anytime, no matter what time of the day or nigth you arrive. We have checked in as early as 4:30am, they had already printed our stuff, because we had booked the room for the night before, so we were guaranteed our room would be ready at arrival. We almost always arrive between 6:30 and 7:30 am and there is no line to check in, that way we have our key and tickets and dining if we purchased a package, then we usually get a room assigned around lunch time when we're ready to take our break.

I just looked at the video that was shot by AllEars of the inside of the LM rooms and it looks beautiful! One thing I did have a question about for the people who are planning on staying in those rooms or who have stayed there is, did your clothes fit into the drawers? They look pretty small. Does anybody have any suggestions or ideas on what to do about clothing storage? I dont really want to keep my clothes in our suitcases because its a pain to have to pull them out and dig through them. But I also dont want to spend a lot of money on an organizer or something of that sort, plus it would take up a lot of room in the suitcase. I was thinking about going to the dollar store and seeing if there was something cheap that would work for clothing storage there. Any ideas?

AP discounts at AoA were only available for the family suites -- not the LM section. I checked the first day the AP discounts were announced to see if I could discount my already-made reservation for early November.

I made my LM reservation about a month ago but I had to check constantly before I found availability. I originally booked less than the desired number of days and then found additional days later that I called and added. I've checked on LM availability for a number of different dates in October, November and December -- most of the time LM is not available. It is incredibly popular at the moment.

There are AP discounts at Pop, the All Stars and POR.

Does anyone know an estimation of the walk time from LM rooms to the food court? I'm thinking 7 min.? I would really like to request building 7 lakeview.

We bring cheap shelf type hanging organizers to pop (same configuration) for each of us and hang them in the closet. Use the drawers for bathing suits undies socks etc. when we leave we throw out the organizers (usually purchase in target dollar spot).
