The balloon is an awesome idea!! I am going to bring a few with us. You are talking about a regular balloon right? Not helium? If I bring a balloon and some ribbon, I could blow it up and leave it on a chair or something. I don't know how much it will move at night though.

I would assume a helium balloon. How could a dangling air filled one move around enough to cause the motion sensor to detect it? The helium one would blow with the a/c being dispensed. Of course, I could be wrong, but that seems to make more sense to me?

I saw someone had asked about the drawer space... Can't seem to find it now! (forgive me, I'm on the app and it's confusing me! Haha) but in case anyone is still wondering...
Personally for two of us, not enough drawer space. Lots of space for hanging clothes but not enough hangers. I would have liked to bring some cheap hangers and hang most of our clothes.
It is nice to have a fridge though

love the look of the resort but those small beds and lack of drawer space will not work for our family of 3. Need good nights sleep when doing Disney! Back to Port Orleans we go, but will definitely visit the grounds.

Thanks! Its just DH and I but I was still concerned it wouldn't be enough space. I think I might just go to the dollar store and get some cheap hangers or a storage space saver thing if I can find them. I dont want to take up too much room in my suitcase so I might just go with the hangers.

you can always ask housekeeping for more hangers!

That's kind of what I was thinking, but I wasn't sure how long one would last.

Thanks for all of the info that's coming thru; hope you're all having good weather and lots of fun!
The info for Pop Century is that rollaway beds are available, so perhaps we can assume the same for the LM rooms at AoA.

I second that request, may consider LM if roll-away beds are an option

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

House keeping will give you more hangers.

There is also a way to override the sensor! If you press the power button and down arrow button at the same time, it will show "BP" on the thermostat, and the sensor will be bypassed.

Great hint - thanks for sharing. Seems a lot easier than a balloon.
