Not quite summer, but we stayed in a LK suite in May. It is true that the thermostat does not go below 68, but that was plenty cool for us. We usually left it set at 72, and we had six people in the room.

I have read that some people have had issues with the A/C not cooling well overnight or while they were at the parks because of motion sensors. However, we did not seem to experience that. Our room was always consistently cool and never muggy for us.

Hope that helps. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

That is soooo cool! I am traveling with two young adults and they will be in the parks but I am hanging at the resort and that would be so cool to have Disney magic when I am not going in the parks!

We stayed in a Lion King suite for a week at the end of June. There were 6 of us in the room. We could turn our a/c down to 65...which is where my DH kept it for our entire stay. The kids and I were freezing in the room at night...even my DD8 who wears footed all-in-one fleece blanket sleepers all year round (and was wearing them at Disney). I had to call mousekeeping to get extra blankets for everyone, but DH was happy as a clam. I think 68 would have been much more reasonable.

My oldest DS and his DGF stayed in a Little Mermaid room that same week and said they could only turn theirs down to 68 but that was cool enough.

I'm here now in a Cars suite. The thermostat goes down to 70 and I have turned it up to 72 both nights because it has been chilly.

LM - Which Buildings are What Character?

Sorry i this is already posted somewhere but I'm having a heck of a time finding it, if it is!

In the LM area, which buildings are which? On the map, the buildings are numbered 7, 8 and 9. But I see people referring to the buildings a "the Ursula building" or the "Ariel building". Can you tell me which number building, is which character? TIA!

Hi all!

Staying in AoA for 10 days from August 28th 2013! 20 days to go!
We have a Chef Mickey's reservation on the 30th at 7:00am, I have read that the buses start running at 6:30 am, are we going to be cutting it fine? Or will this be ok? Will it matter if we're a couple of minutes late? I should think this is the first reservation of the morning?
I would prefer not to get a taxi, but if we HAVE to does anybody know how much they are to the MK?
I appreciate any thoughts you have thanks!

For those that have rooms at AOA for August 2013 what room discounts did you get for the third week of August. I'm doing research for August 2014 and was curious!

I was able to get a 15% discount for the Cars Suite. I believe I booked in February/March.

They are Cuisinart coffee makers. The coffee is terrible (unless it changed since November).
