YES!!!! Always try to tell managers what a great job people are doing!!! we do it every trip!

Amazing.. OMG Tetris!!! That's hysterical!!!!


Do you have a picture of the safe?!?! I'd like to know how big they are?!

We are booked to stay in LM section at end of October for 14 nights and very excited! First time staying on site and first trip for DD6

Do they have a "grab and go" cart for breakfast items by the LM pool in the mornings?
Is this all year round or just in summer?
Is there much selection?
What time are they open in the mornings?
Just thought would be useful when rushing out early to the parks.

Hey all!

I'm new to the forums (I've been reading since before my last trip, but just joined the forum).

I'm staying at AoA (Little Mermaid section) in November (I've been there once before - October 2013), so I just stopped by this thread to say hi and see what others are talking about with regards to AoA.

Hi!

Hi folks! Thank you to all of those that replied to my post!

I was a bit concerned about the distance to the buses, but y'all eased my mind. Thanks!

**One other thing...for parking and getting in and out of the resort, is it like a "one way in/out sort of deal" or are their multiple exits? Like, how hard will it be to exit in the morning via car??

I'm just trying to wrap my mind about how big this place is, as we need to leave the resort to go to sea world one of the days. We stayed at Swan and Dolphin in 2000, but that was my last time on disney prop. Since then, we've always stayed off.

Thanks!

At one point I was reading they put a cart out from of the Mermaid rooms in the morning that sells coffee and maybe a few other things. My Mother/Father in law are staying in Mermaid room while we are in a LK Suite. What's the deal these days? They still doing a cart or will they need to trek to hospitality for their morning coffee?

Also- have they wrapped up the food court reconstruction yet?

I'm looking forward to going to AofA. Rooms like huge. I'm wondering if someone can take a picture of the inside of their frig with 'stuff' inside.

I'm planning a large gardengrocer order and want to make sure its all going to fit.

There's one main entrance/exit for AoA, but I wouldn't expect any traffic issues during your Sea World morning.

Technically you can connect through the parking lots to the Pop Century entrance/exit as well, but that isn't something you'd need to do.

If you google "art of animation fridge" then click on images there are loads of photos of the fridges and the insides

Just curious: what would you guys say to convince someone to stay in the AoA Little Mermaid section (don't need a suite) over, say, Pop or one of the mods?

I've never stayed in any of the mods, but the reason why I picked LM at AoA over Pop for my next trip is the theming inside the rooms - at Pop Century the theming outside is amazing . . . but I don't think it's as great inside the rooms. The theming at LM continues inside the room ... the shower is one of my favorite parts and I love being immersed in things that remind me of one of my favorite movies.

Here is a link to the AOA picture thread: http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3024335

It's quite easy to stroll around the resort and check out all the different sections.
