AOA "Fridge Situation"

Hi there.

I got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that in the Little Mermaid room that i will be staying in starting 9/14 there is not going to be a mini fridge available to me due to the recall. I have a medical reason and have to have mine and my daughters medicine refridgerated. SO I called and they typed in that i will need one and they said they will see what they can do but can not promise. She also said some of the rooms are not effected because they have been replaced.

So if you get a letter may want to call just to check.

Thanks!!

So have they started to replace any of the fridges in the LM section? Starting to get a bit nervous for our late October trip....

Hi, All! Back story: there are 4 adults, 2 kids going on this trip. This is our 3rd trip in 4 years, but we have only stayed at Pop before. We are staying at AoA in a Nemo Suite in December. I have a few questions:


1. I don't see much about the Nemo Suites. Are they bad? DD4 and DS2 like both Nemo and Lion King, so we just picked one.

2. I saw someone posted that AoA is in the testing group for Fastpass+ in September. I sooooo want to do this; any word on December?

3. Have any of you been to WDW in December? Did you decorate your door/windows? If so, how?

Thanks!!!

I've seen people talk about pixie dust upgrades that happen out of the blue for no discernible reason when staying onsite. We're booked into a Cars suite for our trip - if we were to receive one of these, what form might an upgrade take (special view or something maybe?)? I'm not asking how to get one or anything like that - I'd just like to be able recognize an upgrade if they choose to give us one.

TIA!

I would imagine there wouldn't be much to upgrade to at AoA. From what I've seen it seems to be something that happens with resorts with many bookable room categories.

Picked my fp+ times and customized my magic bands today. My mickey mail came in earlier this week too. Everything seems to be done but packing and (impatiently) waiting out the next 3.5 weeks.

Hi All

I started planning this trip in December. My youngest DD (23 yr. old) said no thanks. Of course she just changed her mind. That changed our family dynamics from 4 to 5. So we had to change resorts. We were booked at CRB and have only stayed on site once before, CSR. It was Ok, but we didnít become a fan of it.

There wasnít any rooms open at POR for our dates w/the FD we have, so we are now at AoA. In a Cars suite. My 3 year old grandson loves Cars though Woody & Buzz are his favorite. Iím sure we will have a great time.

Anyway Iím detailed orientated and compulsively search for all information I can get my hands on. Hopefully yíall wonít mind some repeat questions as Iím sure these have been asked over and over again.

Is there a preferred suite/building in the CARS section?

The table/bed and sofa couch. Are they made up into beds every night and put back every day by mousekkeeping or is this something we do ourselves?

The next 100 days are dragging but at least by tomorrow we will be in double digits.
TIA

There isn't a "preferred" category of suites that you can book at AOA, they are all the same price. You can make requests for location, though, and the resort will do their best to fulfill your requests. The Cars suites are located in buildings 1, 2 and 3. I believe building 1 would be closest to the main building and parking lot. You could also request things such as "ground floor", "close to elevator", etc.

Mousekeeping will make up the sofa and table beds and then fold them up each day. You will need to fold them down again at night, but it's very simple to do.

Thank you mum2four. Sounds like falling in to bed after a long day shouldn't be to hard.

We were booked for a Nemo Suite earlier this month. At check-in I was offered a free upgrade for a 1 bedroom villa at Saratoga Springs. I believe (based on what another CM had said) that this was offered because of overbooking @ AoA (& in particular, the Nemo section). I would think an upgrade from an aoa suite would only be offered in a very similar situation. In my case, I had to turn it down as my son 'tolerated' the Poly only because he knew he would get to stay in the Nemo room afterwards (yes, we did a split stay, in that order). We did love our Nemo suite, but AoA was so crowded that week, the serenity of SSR (at least that's the way I pictured it) might have been nice.

Just a final check before we go in 4 days, any update as to whether the RFID mugs have gone live at AoA yet?

We are staying at AOA Oct 25-30 and I am able to customize magic bands today! Woo hoo Had no idea we would be getting them for our stay. Looks like either they will be ready for everyone by Oct or we are a part of the 'testing phase'. Either way I am excited to be coming back to AOA and having a Magic band!

Not as of Monday. Maybe someone who's been more recently can confirm that's still the case.
