I found the wifi to be excellent at the resort, in the rooms, and throughout most areas of the parks. However, my room in the Cars section was a dead zone for cellular and I would have to leave my devices on the windowsill to get texts and take calls just outside the building.

I found this as well, but when I checked my reservation using MDE, I had a lot more options. This was about 45 days after I had done the standard online checkin. I had no trouble whatsoever with online checkin, had all requests granted, and got quickly to my room even though I arrived 8 hours before checkin time.

We did online check in and it was wonderful! We didn't even need to go up to a counter. One of the cms grabbed us right off the bus, entered a couple things in his tablet, handed us our welcome package and magic bands and off we went. We arrived at 10:30 am and our room was all ready to go. Took 5 minutes tops.

My husband is 6' 6". As you could imagine, all beds are short by his standards, but they didn't seem to be any shorter than any other bed we've ever had at a hotel. We stayed in a suite and slept in the main bed and it was fine.

That sounds great! We will be arriving at around 11:30am. All we are hoping for is a room to be ready. We always arrive at this time. This will be our fifth resort stay and a room has never been ready for us. I know it's early but fingers crossed that we can get into our room when we arrive!

Real silverware at the food court. Plastic in the suites.

Real plates and bowls in the food court but paper in the rooms (at least that's how it was when we were there in June)

AoA little mermaid

We're staying at Little Mermaid. Just wanted to know if the main building has a microwave to heat up milk for kids?
Thanks
