Just booked our December family trip back to AoA. The kids/grandkids in a Nemo Suite and my DH & I in a Little Mermaid room. My DIL is booking her parents into a Nemo Suite.

This will be my 3rd stay at AoA but my first in the Little Mermaid section. Love the family suites when traveling with young children. In early July, we had my DIL, the three young grandkids, my DH and I in a Cars Suite. It worked really well! Which is why we booked another round for December.

My DH actually prefers the AoA Food Court to any other food he's had at Disney! We're checking in a day before everyone else arrives, so I'm going to take him somewhere nice like Jiko's, so he knows that there is good food at WDW

Anyone know if you can use gift cards for arcade credits? Don't plan on carrying much money, and I'm sure my nephew would like to play. Just wondered if this would work or not.

Does not affect the suites, those are different, bigger refrigerators.

Hi! Loving this thread--I am getting lots of info! We are coming to AoA for one night in a Cars Suite (as a surprise for my 5-year-old DS) before a week at Kidani.

This may already have been addressed, and I apologize if so. I haven't made it through the whole thread yet. Does Landscapes of Flavor have chicken nuggets or chicken tenders? I saw "chicken meal" on the menu on AllEars, but I wasn't sure what kind of chicken that was.

Thanks in advance for any help!!

How many credits per game in the arcade? I know it varies per game, but just wondering if the 100 free credits is like 10 games or 20ish.

If its anything like it as before, that card was good for 2 or 3 games...I could be wrong but it seemed that way.

I think this is right.

I tried the one in the Polynesian and for instance PacMan was 30 points and Star Wars was like 60 points. Think the Air Hockey was around 60 points too if memory serves me right.

room requests

I have been looking for the fax number to fax my room request. Does anyone have it? If so, please share!!! Or would I be better off doing it during on-line check in? Or both? TIA! Leaving in 2 days!

Faxing requests isn't recommended anymore as reports are the resorts are either ignoring them or simply not accepting faxes.

The best best is to call the Walt Disney Travel Company and have your requests added to your reservation. Online check-in also has some room request options but you're limited to a set of pre-defined check boxes related to "close to transportation" or "ground floor" and each resort has some different selections available.

Correct. POR and POFQ are the only resorts that read and act upon faxed room requests. All others are tossed without being read.

FYI- I called the travel company eleven days out and was told that "close to transportation" isn't an accepted request for AoA: Cars because the buildings are all relatively close to the bus pick up area. It wasn't that big of an issue for us, so I didn't try again or make an issue out of it, but thought it was kind of a strange answer.

Did my online check in today! I didnt bother with any room requests (we're staying in a Cars family suite) because the only thing I'm hoping for is a room that is ready for us before 3pm (our flight gets in at 9:30 am)
