Do you guys know what kind of iced tea is available at the food court or pool? Is it just a Lipton like kind out of the soda dispenser or is it fresh brewed? My mom is an iced tea addict so she is trying to figure out where she can get her fix

It's brewed Gold Peak (there's like four different types). It was the absolute best things ever, as GP is my crack and I got unlimited refills all week with the DDP mug! Way better than Lipton!

She will be so excited to hear that there's fresh brewed available, thanks! Do you know if it's at the pool bar too, or just in the food court?

Like fivesacharm said-Gold Peak (I only remember a choice of sweet / unsweet when I was there in August, but I only drink unsweetened & may not have noticed other flavors). Definitely way better than any fountain variety of iced tea, but not quite fresh brewed taste to me. Good enough to get me through 10 days @ Disney. I also brought some cold brew so I didn't always have to make it to the dining hall for tea. Besides Lipton's regular cold brew, Twinings makes berry & peach flavored versions that are pretty good. I found the peach flavored for sale in the UK @ Epcot. Also just found it here at home at Big Lots (for a couple $s cheaper than Epcot)!

Here's a pick of the options of tea...the white citrus was fabulous. Much better than "fountain" tea!

It was at the pool at both resorts we stayed at this past summer, though I can't say for sure in terms of AoA (if there's drink machines available, very likely there will be tea available)

This great, that's my favorite bottle tea to drink.

It is available at the pool at AoA

Looking at the map it looks to be quite a hike from the little mermaid rooms to the bus pick up area and the main pool. Anybody have any first hand knowledge?

I saw somewhere where the distance from the LM rooms to the bus stop was a little under a 1/4 mile.

Room Request

I've been looking through the thread but having a hard time deciding which room to request. We're staying in the Nemo suite. We'll be mainly driving and would like a quiet room and have 3 little kids. What would you recommend? Ground floor, top floor, lake view, landscape view? Thanks for any help!!!

When making room requests I have found it best to describe what you want. Like close to food court, close to quiet pool, etc. So I would word your request "quiet room location". The room assigners know which rooms will be typically quiet.

You're right. It is quite a hike, especially if you are in building eight.
We walked the distance a few times when we stayed at Pop last month.

That being said, we booked a LM room for next month, so we will be "hiking" back and forth to the bus in a few weeks.

Thanks! Online, though, it has me check 2 requests. Was curious what other people liked or thought was the best.

That's why I don't like making my requests via online check in. The options are very limited. It's best to call and have your requests added to your reservation.
