There's the Drop-Off Pool Bar near the Big Blue Pool in the Finding Nemo section. You can see it when you walk out of the main building, going towards the pool. They've got TV and a variety of both beers and mixed drinks (they may also have wine, I don't remember, but I'm sure you can find the menu online somewhere). They also sell some beer in the regular food court.

Now that 2015 rates have been release I was looking to book a vacation for my family for the last week of April. We'd like to stay at AoA. We are a family of 5 but, the grandparents are coming to so, one kid would go on there reservation, this way we can save money buy going with 2 standard rooms.

Here is my issue, when I go to the Disney website and select 2 adults and 2 kids, it says the standard Little Mermaid rooms are not available. When I change it to 2 adults and 1 kid, the rooms become available. These rooms are suppose to sleep up to 4 adults so why will it not let me chose one with 2 adults and 2 kids?

I just tried it to see and I saw the same thing you did but when I tried march it worked...so the issue must be something other than the amount of people... Don't know if those rooms are booked already for that time or it's just a glitch that far out... I guess I would call

I just tried it again and got it to work for just about any day in April... Must have just been a temp glitch... ENJOY

Late checkout or swimming after checkout?

We are just spending our arrival night at AOA then switching the next day to POR. We aren't sure what time we will roll in on arrival night, and we aren't visiting a park that first day. (Before that first day was going to be our arrival day.)

So, will AOA let us stay past checkout time to swim or let us checkout after 11?

You can ask, but it certainly won't be a given.

Even if you only get late check-out until 12 noon, you can still use the pools and all facilities the entire day.

Great to hear! Who knows, we might even be done with the pool and ready to move on with our journey by 11. But I feel better knowing we'll have some flexibility with our time to swim and explore the grounds.

I think I have read almost every post in this thread. There's a lot of discussion about how great the LM rooms and LK and Cars suites are. We have a Nemo suite booked for next month. We have requested highest floor and lake view because we are hoping to avoid any noise from the Big Blue. So ... Please tell me (if) the Nemo suites are every bit as great as LK and Cars suites.

And at the Cars pool, there is a huge locker room where you could clean up afterwards, if you like/need. Not sure if there at similar facilities at the Nemo or LM pools..?

All (or certainly most, if that's not accurate) Disney resort pools have a restroom/changing building nearby. The Big Blue (Nemo) and Flippin' Fins (LM) pools have their own facilities.
