Does anyone know if they have vests at the pool? We have a 4 year old who still doesn't swim without one.

I keep second guessing myself and my decisions. Please help me!!!

The first trip my family took to Disney was in Dec. 2011 and we stayed at Polynesian. My kids loved it and want to stay there again, but with construction there's no way!

We are going back in Dec. 2014 (5th-10th) and are booked at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge Studio. I know it's a small room, but there seems to be lots to do and I like the idea of taking the boat to MK and Contemporary for the monorail. But now I'm wondering if I'd be better off in a resort like BWI or a suite at AoA? My kids liked the Nemo rooms, but they are no longer available with RO discounts. Please help. I'm like a lunatic. I keep changing my mind. My kids know we're going, but they don't know where we are staying. My DH just says do what you want. LOL

Are there showers in these locker rooms??

Well, our reservation is booked! My wife, me, our 3 kids and the grandparents will be going (possibly my sister but she may have to back out). We'll be staying in 2 LM rooms for 5 nights. Can't wait!

My wife and I use to live in Orlando (we actually met while working at Spider-Man in IOA) and had Disney APs for years but, this will be the first time either of us has stayed at a Disney resort. We took my oldest daughter to Disney in April 2013 but, stayed with a friend. We are excited about arriving on Disney property and not leaving again the entire trip.

It came down to staying at POR, POP or AoA. POR looked nice but, we decided to save some money and ruled it out. POP's theme just didn't excite me much and the kids loved the videos we showed them of AoA so, it won.

Everything seems to have linked up just fine to my wife's and my MDE accounts. We are the only 2 with MDE accounts so far, the rest I created as family members that I manage. I haven't decided if I'm going to invite the grandparents to create there own accounts. They think they are good with tech but, they're not. I'd hate for them to accidentally delete or mess up a reservation or FP+ when we start making those selections.

One MDE question. Like I said, both room reservations linked up fine but, in the iOS app when I view one of the reservations it doesn't load the character icons for 2 of my kids. At first I thought it didn't link right but, all the character icons show up fine on the website so, it's just the app. Anyone seen this or know how to fix it? I think everything is linked right, the icons do show up when I look at their assigned tickets, just paranoid.

Are you staying in a suite? The fridges in the suite are bigger than the ones in the mermaid rooms. Here's what we put in ours: 1/2 gallon milk, 1/2 gallon orange juice, pound of ham, pack of cheese, pack of kid yogurt, bag of strawberries, several single beverages (cans of beer, bottles of water, juice boxes, etc.), pack of frozen breakfast sandwiches in freezer section. The freezer section didn't really keep the sandwiches frozen solid. Using creative packing you can fit a lot.

In the bedroom there is a lot of space by TV to put your bags or stroller. The open hanging racks have a large drawer on the bottom and you can put stuff on the top over the hangers too. If you live out of your bag, you can set it on the little bench area. We had 3 adults and 2 kids in our room and had plenty of room for all our stuff and space that we didn't feel on top of each other when relaxing in the room. Loves having 2 TVs and 2 bathrooms!

Is there anyway that Disney would allow a group of 7 to stay in one of the Family Suites, either at AoA or ASMu? If my sister doesn't come, a family suite at ASMu would be a little cheaper then 2 LM rooms at AoA. Our party would then be 4 adults and 3 kids, ages 5, 5 and 7. Our travel agent says it is not possible but I swear I've read trip reports where people have gotten more then the stated "sleeps 6" limit.

The only way you can "get around" the fire code limit of 6 people in the suites is if you have a child under 3. That child wouldn't count towards the total. Otherwise, you are limited to 6.

We are staying in a suite. I'm not sure what theme we'll stay in, but the suites are a definite. There will be 14 of us so three rooms. do they have joining rooms? The suites look like they have huge amounts of space. I've been checking out the pools but haven't seen a lot of life guards there. Anyone know if there are life guards?

There are no connecting suites -- but you could note on your reservation that you would like to be located as close together as possible. But that's only a request and not a guarantee. And there are definitely lifeguards at the pools.
