Any flavor but "make your own" was a snack. We had strawberry banana, mango, and tropical energy. All were very yummy!

Pre-apologies if this was already asked and answered:

Do any of the family suites have connecting rooms?

Thank you!!!

Sorry if this has been asked before. For those that have stayed in the LM side, which building 7 or 9 is closer to the main reception? On the map it doesn't look much different. I would like to request a ground floor room on the east side of either buildings. I have a 4 year old so would like to be closer to the bus stop, etc. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

OK, so I have sat and read through all 87 pages, and didn't find the answer to my question, my apologies if I just missed it though. Does anyone who has stayed in a LM room know if a twin size (or smaller) air mattress would fit anywhere in the room? We currently have a LM room reserved, but I'm getting worried it may not be big enough....

No, I've read from others who have stayed at AoA that only the LM rooms are connecting. The suites are not connecting.

Well there you go. DH wouldn't like those other ones. So he would have had to pay OOP for just a strawberry smoothie?

We were in section 9 , 4th floor facing the parking lot.. It was very quiet... Never heard anyone. We were the 2nd to last room at the end, room 9814.. Great spot, we could see the fireworks from there

I was wondering the same thing. I love strawberry smoothies but I don't want bananas in them. I wonder if I can order a strawberry banana smoothie and hold the banana.

Mmmm. When I made my reservation for 2 LK suites, I asked for connecting and was told they would try but could not guarantee it. I don't know if CM knew there if were connecting rooms or not.

I could be wrong, but I don't remember seeing a way to open them.

We just returned from LM, room 9720. All the LM rooms are a hike through the LK section; I would not consider any of the LM rooms close to bus stop, etc.

I don't think I will return to this resort. It was thrilling to be the first ones to check into a Disney room, but the rooms had too little soundproofing. Two nights, the child next door woke up crying in the middle of the night and woke me up. I fully realize children are going to make noise, but I think that is a soundproofing problem, not a child problem. I could hear every toilet flush, and the fan in the bathroom comes on loudly any time you get close to the bathroom. Not my most relaxing stay, unfortunately.

Buses were frequent but crowded. I was there Sept 15-22, and LM was fully booked.

Shut the front door!

Best Resort yet! We were at WDW last week. We arrived on Sunday and stayed at Port Orleans Riverside; even got the room I requested. Rooms were spacious, grounds were lovely, everyone was very nice. But it was serene. And fancy. And utterly boring. I can imagine how some people would enjoy it but it just wasn't our cup of tea. We stayed 3 nights, trying to make the most of our stay but I woke up Wednesday morning and headed to the front desk begging to be moved to a more "colorful" resort. Previously, we've stayed at Movies and loved our stays at POP. But I wanted to try AoA and they put us in a Cars Family Suite!

Oh my gosh it was amazing! So bright! So colorful! So clever! So absolutely Disney! It really saved our vacation! Already booked Finding Nemo for April. No Bounce-back offers, though.

I loved our evening strolls over the Generation Gap Bridge to POP as well, being able to go to a different food court is great.

No cell phone service in the room and the wifi was hit or miss but that's not the end of the world.

I LOVE AOA!!!
