Food was Greasy?!
Can you expound on that please?
Also, did you notice if LM corner rooms had windows on 2 sides like they do at Pop & All Stars?

So excited! We're planning to book in a few weeks when a check we've been waiting for arrives.

Here's the thing: AoA looks so popular. Do you think it's going to be difficult to get a LK or FN suite for the last week in April when booking in mid-October? I wouldn't have thought so, but I'm starting to wonder.

Also, since the whole resort is open now, is it crazy busy? DH was worrying about that.

(Side note: I see a number of fellow Buffalonians on this thread. Hello! Go Bills! :D)

I'm confused... I don't think the corner rooms at the All Stars and Pop Have windows on 2 sides. I am assuming that the LM rooms are the same, with only one set of windows in the corner rooms. I know the mods have corner rooms with 2 sets of windows, but I've never noticed any value resorts like that. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though!

We are staying in a LK suite in November. We've asked for a view of the courtyard but want to know for those that have stayed. Any preference on which floor to stay on? Top floor?

Stupid spell check did not mean food was "greasy" meant food lines were crazy.... Long lines for the made to order

Thank you, DisneyFreak06, for replying.
Boy it sure does not look like it in that photo, does it.
I had a corner room in Jazz Inn at ASMU, that had windows on 2 sides. But it was on the center corner of the T, if you know what I mean, where the breezeway goes through. You would think the outside corners would too.
I called supposed AoA today, but you know that is a call center no where near the resort, to ask them. The CM said first thing, "You mean like the All Stars do?". But she did not know if AoA did. But, she also told me I couldn't request lake view, because I had paid for a standard room, which is the only booking category there is in LM.
Oh well, I will find out soon. More light in the room makes it not so claustrophobically small.

We were at the 2nd to end room of a corner and I did not see two windows at that corner.. Reason I noticed is because my son kept trying to wave at the neighbors, lol...

It seems like many Buffalonians end up in NC

Has anyone ordered a pizza and had it sent to the room? I thought I read that it comes from Pop but I have no idea if this is true. How much is it for those who know? We would not use TS credits for it but pay OOP.

ETA: I just found the answer, figured I would look on the site below and it was there (added in July).

6 wings for $7.99!! (not that we'd order wings outside of WNY anyway but still)
