Good Luck!
I am sitting here in Philly checking out tomorrow's weather right now. I have to travel for work tomorrow and I wish I could just cancel - it doesn't look good.

I'm in Baltimore and it definitely doesn't look good here either...we had a tornado touch down not too far from my house the other day. Pixies heading your way for safe travels!

All booked up?!

We are planning our next trip the week of Dec 8th for DD's 5th birthday but the Mermaid rooms are all booked up (and this is supposed to be the slow time of year ugh)...then I see a few posts on the moms panel about ppl that were offered free dining to change their reservations to another resort (they didn't specify dates)... anyone have any guesses on why this is??

Sorry, I haven't read all the posts - how comfortable are the pullout and Murphy bed? I may be traveling with my D and my niece (both adults), and it would be great to have 3 beds without a deluxe pricetag!

We didn't try the Murphy bed but I have heard it is comfortable. We did test out the pull out couch. My husband is a big man and he thought it was very comfortable. He ended up falling asleep in it one night in front do the tv and had a very comfortable sleep.

Disney tends to overbook their rooms. So, if they find that they have a large number of rooms overbooked, they will try to move guests to other resorts. Sometimes they will upgrade them to DVC resorts, other times they will try to move them to another value or a moderate and give them free dining. Usually not full free dining but counter service free dining.
There are, sadly, no longer any true slow times of year at WDW anymore. I've been every year in early Dec and every year it has been more crowded than the year before!!!

I would never be so lucky as to get moved to a nicer resort or to be offered free dining! LOL!

Leaving Saturday the 22nd!

We're staying in a Cars suite. First timers to AOA AND Disney World! Any hints or tips that will make our stay more fun? We're driving so will have access to a car, but I'm not planning on doing anything outside of Disney World until it's time to leave. We will be there 7 days, so I'm guessing I will be doing laundry. Is there a problem with leaving your clothes in the laundry room or do I need to stay with them the entire time?

Also, what's the very best Cars suite to get? Building #? Top floor? Corner? We try to stay away from elevators, ice machines, etc. and we like quiet rooms.

Thanks for any advice you can give to this little newbie family

How exciting. You guys will have a great time.

As far as the best building that kind of depends what you are looking for. Buildings 1 and 3 are closer to animation hall and the buses, building 2 faces the pool and is the one with lighting out front. Building 3 has one side facing Hourglass Lake which makes for a nice view.

Building 3 was a great fit for us because it has Luigi and Pitstop out front which are my son's favorites. We also liked the lake view and how close it was to everything. We were in the tip floor and were able to see some of the higher fireworks from the Epcot show out our window. The LM buildings block a lot of the fireworks,but my son still enjoyed watching the "stars" out the window.

Building two has Mater out front and slightly closer to the bus stop.

Have Fun!

If you are in buildings 1 or 3 your are just as close to the main building as the Nemo suited. Even Building 2 isn't a terribly far walk. You guys will have a blast!

The Cars section is still close to Animation Hall and so I'd assure you not to worry about the distance. For building choices, 1 and 3 are slightly closer to Animation Hall than building 2.
