Our Family are staying in the AOA and I hope to stay in the Cars for September 2014! And one more thing. We requested a crib for a baby and does the AOA has baby cribs in the family suites?

On request, yes. Sounds like you requested, and so there you have it!

Thanks!

Um, it's a pretty good bet that ALL the Disney resorts have had bed bugs, along with every other resort in the US. They isolate your stuff, decontaminate it, and gas the hell out of the room or whatever they do to kill them off. Don't sweat it. Google how to check your room upon entering if you feel the need. But don't forget, you are never safe unless you stay home. The damn things can climb on and into your luggage while on an airplane too. Hehe. Getting grossed out yet?

Bed bugs happen even in 5 stars hotel. It's one of the risks coming with travelling.

I got my own routine when I get into a new hotel. Before I put my luggage anywhere in the room (I suspend them):

I take pictures of the room when I get in (while it's cute)... Then I remove all sheets from the bed to take a good look at the mattress (look on youtube, they'll show you where to check and what to look for) and I open every drawers of the room to make sure I don't see bedbugs or eggs.

Yes, it kills the mood a bit but when you see nothing, you can sleep in peace. Just check your body to see if you are free of stings...

I know that some store are selling bed bug traps (the name sounds like Beddybugs, I am not sure) that you can stick on the bed and if the bugs are inside the bed, it'll go in the trap but I am not sure how it works or if it is efficient.

I actually think you have less chances to get bed bugs in values and moderates since it's very unlikely that they'll move from room to room by going outside (it's easier in a hallway)...

OH NOES! Family suites ARE hallways!

(And now, after my joking about worrying about bed bugs, I am sure to get them myself in two weeks)

How is the water pressure in the suites? I know most hotels morning/night prime time is already an issue. Just curious if both showers can run at the same time or does that have issues with the water pressure?

We stayed in a suite with six people, and had showers runnning every morning and evening. Never had any problems with water pressure and the water was always nice and hot.

Cars suite

Hello! Staying in cars suite in September and had a quick question on the room preferences you can request when doing online checkin. If you choose a pool view, do most rooms provide good views of the "cars" statutes? My youngest is 1, and trying to decide whether a view of the cars is a better option (for the older ones) or a lake view is better for the baby (to be quieter). Thanks

Yes, like the other value resort rooms, in the LM rooms there is a mirror on the door to the tub/toilet area.

Same for us. Six people, lots of showers, no problems with water pressure or temperature. And I have to say I loved the rainfall shower head in the master bathroom. I talked about it so much that when we got home, my husband went and bought one exactly like it (or as close to it as he could find) to surprise me with. Now we just need those Lion King tiles for the walls....
