We're staying in the Nemo suites in April. I prefer a quieter room bc I have a 3yr who's a light sleeper and really don't want her up at 10:30 bc of outside noise. What part of the building does everyone suggest I stay in or where should I avoid?

WOW! I'm very sorry for your loss. Maybe your trip will let you take your mind off of things. Please don't feel guilty for going. Your family member would probably only want happiness for you.

I am so very sorry.

We are able to go on our trip because a very beloved family member died and left us some money. We were heartbroken, but were able to use most of it to pay things off and save and put aside the rest for this. We know he would be thrilled that's what we're doing. (He loved our boys so much ...)

I'm going to have our boys stand in front of the castle with a photo of him so I can get a pic, and that will go in our scrapbook as a memorial. I think that would make him so happy. Perhaps a few memorials to your family member would help you? Think of ways you might be able to honor her while you're there. Maybe it's too soon for that; I don't know. But it's helped us.

Again, condolences. And hugs.

Pros and cons about the little mermaid room:

Pro:
Beautifully decorated
Clean
Pool area near lm is small but nice
Good for kids
Two double beds
Small fridge

Cons:
Paper thin walls...can hear everything,even on the 4th floor. Kids screaming, housekeeping banging around
Housekeeping waking us up at 830am
Small room
Lack of drawer space...only 3 drawers

GO!!! My mother is a two time cancer survivor, by the grace of GOD! We lost Daddy last year to cancer ~ diagnosed and passed within 3 weeks. One big thing we learned during the time that mom was being treated, is that life is short (my motto is "life is short, eat dessert first") ~ enjoy as much as you can with your loved ones who are still here and celebrate to honor the person you lost. If you go into your trip with that mindset you will be able to enjoy yourself because you know you are doing it in celebration of that person's life. I think if you choose not to go, you will end up regretting it.

My DH and our DD's (age 21) are going back again in May together. Just making plans to take Mom in December (only her second trip ever) so she can be there for the NYE fireworks. Disney is my favorite place on earth and I go every chance I get, which while it's not as often as I would like, it's always worth the wait.

Saying a prayer for you and your family ~ cancer sucks, don't let it ruin your trip or you memories of the one you lost.

The desserts seemed to be lacking in comparison to other resorts. Just eh. Cupcakes, all the same basically, and one flavor of cheesecake. They had a sampler pack of mini cupcakes and cheesecake bites. No chocolate cake, no chocolate eared mickey mouse rice crispie on a stick...so sad!
Just realized... no tye-dyed cheesecake without a trip across the lake...


Again.. apologies if this has been answered, (have been skimming) but Pop Century is notorious for HOT rooms (AC is sensor monitored and shuts down for the night when your sleeping) I realize its not as hot of a time of year, so is the AC in the Little Mermaid rooms sufficient? There have been trips in the past to Pop when I'd have LOVED a fan at night. I'm not beyond bringing one for a freezer cold nights sleep.

Someone mentioned in a previous post on here that the AC in the AoA rooms are also sensor activated, however they recommended keeping a helium balloon in the room and it keeps the sensor from turning the unit off at night. I thought that was a pretty clever idea.

Is that standard that the small fridge is in? I didn't think value rooms had fridges and would be overly THRILLED if the LM rooms standard had one!!!

All value hotels at Disney now come with a fridge. They do not have a freezer compartment. The one we had in POP last June kept our stuff as cold as a the fridge at home.

To everyone who offered me kind words, condolences and advice, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know that the advice you offered is good. Especially since some of it comes from your personal experience. I am taking your words to heart and will absolutely find a way to memorialize my loved one on my trip and hard as it will be, I will rejoice in her and have a very special visit to remember.
