Just booked a night at Art of Animation little mermaid room!

We added an extra night to our holiday due to flights changing a couple of weeks ago.

I wanted to stay at Art of animation little mermaid room but there was no availabilty at such late notice. I know US visitors have to pay 45 days out so have been checking and checking last few days crossing my fingers for a cancellation.

Have just managed to get the night we wanted booked so pleased.

We are not going to tell DD and have it as a surprise for the last night.

I was able to book one night in the LM rooms today too, I have been trying for a while now and there were only suites available in other areas of the resort, this morning a room showed up and I was booked online in about 1 minute!!!! Now I have 10 days at POFQ and 1 night at AoA to finish off my trip, I am stoked as much as I was when I got my Wishes Dessert Party reservation.

Fab news that you managed to get AOA!!

We cant wait to try the LMR either



We have booked 2nights at AOA in a LMR as i was desperate to see the resort and i knew that if i visited id be gutted we wasnt staying!

The boys dont know about any part of the trip,BUT i have shown them the LMR as i wanted to make sure they didnt think they was too girly and they love them...."We wont tell them we are staying here until we change resorts"..
Ok so Ariel is featured but so is Ursula and all the other characters the rooms look brilliant Im only gutted about 2 things.
1.My whole stay isnt at AOA
2.they didnt make the LMR into suites too! I dont mean all of the rooms just some as there is 6 of us going to stay there!! and LMR is my choice over all the other rooms!

I would have stayed for the whole trip but since we got free DDP for staying at SSR it came out at around £1900 more to be able to stay at AOA

I know others really dislike values but we actually really love POP and so i know we would love AOA too!

We've got 14 nights at OKW then 1 night at Art of Animation little mermaid.

I decided not to add another night on at OKW as it was pricey plus complete orlando charge an amendment fee.

I didn't want the last night to be a disappointment though..so pleased I finally got the room.

We stayed at All star movies in 2009 and really enjoyed it - I also like 'newness' - have always lived in a new build house.

I would have gone down to reception in my robe and slippers
I can't decide if it's sweet or sinister
