I was at POP in 2011 and do not recall any hot tea being available. And the iced tea tasted artificial and nasty to me.
They have a kurig type device that brews tea and coffee in the room. They also have an assortment of teas as well as coffee.

Actually? The buses start running by 6:30 every morning!! Not sure why there is other info out there. But, the buses were up and running that early last week...and have been for years now.

We were just at AoA-LM over the weekend!! It was a wonderful stay...bldg 7, Ursula, ground floor, looking out at the pool!! Very nice. The food court is okay. Buses were okay but not as good as in the past. But that could be due to it just being more crowded everywhere last week!!!

I thought those were only in the suites? We're staying in a standard LM room...

Since Staples is an office supply store, I think most folks use them mainly to order bottled water. I would imagine their selection of snacks would be pretty limited.

And I think I remember reading a post that said Staples will ship cases of bottled water without a shipping charge, but I'm not sure about that.

They begin at 10am in the lobby area and run every hour on the hour with the last class being at 6p. I'd double check when you check in that the times are still the same. Days and times are subject to change

Question for those who have already been to AoA and stayed in the LM Room!

I know they don't have microwaves in the rooms, or coffee pots/brewing sets (that's a suite thing, right?) but can you ask/rent one by any chance from the main lobby? Or is it a sort of 'bring it if you need it' thing?

I have used staples just for water but they do have bulk snack room type of snacks. They are cheaper than GG because of the shipping/delivery charges. No limit for Staples - for us the shipping was free and when the resort lost our bottled water (2x!) they expressed it over from a local store.

I have not seen any reports of Disney providing appliances like these on request at any of the value resorts.

It's not a Keurig, it's a Cuisinart pod machine. K-Cups will not work in them.

Yes, the coffee machines are only in the suites. The LM rooms do not have these.

Nothing like that is available in the LM rooms. You could probably bring your own coffee pot but I'm not sure they will allow you to have a microwave in the room! They ask that you do no cooking in the room.

I really must just love AOA! I am pretty certain DH and I want to forfeit our FD ressie at Pop and move back to AOA standard. We just can not get AOA off our minds and really at this point we feel like its worth the money since we will just be wanting to be over there rather than at Pop..... I just feel like I can only talk up the little mermaid rooms to my two boys for so long because I know how much they love all the AOA stuff and we just feel like its home! Am I the only crazy one considering staying in LM rooms with no discount at all....

Grumble! Ah well, I'll survive. It is a shame, though, we'd use a microwave if they had one to save on $$$ by not dining in the park as much. And there are no communal grills or outdoor cooking areas either, correct? Just the fridge in the room and that'll be the kit-n'-kaboodle.
