Oh. Must have missed one adult there. You would be (IMO) too tight in a LM room with the baby crib. A suite would be perfect though, but much more $$$. 2 connecting rooms would be cheaper.

Hey everyone!

I'm currently looking to book a LM room for a week in early January. It'll be a solo trip so there's obviously no need to get a suite. With that said, I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on which building to ask for in the LM section? I was thinking building #7 since it's near the lake (is a lake view possible?) and it's closer to Animation Hall than #8 appears to be. I was toying with the idea of getting a preferred room at ASMo since I would like to be close to the food court and bus stop but I think the theming of AoA is winning me over even if I can't be right next to Animation Hall. Also, how accommodating is AoA typically with regard to building and floor requests?

One more! This could probably be answered if I need a little more research myself, but what are the hours for the food court and shop in Animation Hall during January?

Thanks!

I'm so excited to be joining in this thread!

Today I booked an 8 night trip for my family of 6 in a Nemo suite for this summer (used the summer room only deal), actually less than 6 weeks from now. We can't wait!

We visited AoA last year while staying at another Disney resort and loved it. We toured the grounds (I think only the Cars and Nemo areas were open at that point) and enjoyed a meal at the food court. We were truly WOWED by the resort, it is impressive!

Thank you yellowfish78 for this thread, and to everyone for sharing info, tips and reports, keep them coming!!!

My family is myself, dh and our 4 boys ages 13, 11, 9 & 7. I am trying to decide where everyone sleeps... I'm wondering if I should buy a twin size air mattress and put my 13 yr old on it. (We drive so it wouldn't be a problem to bring.) Then two of the others would be on the pull out and one on the fold down. Hmmm.

liznboys - I'm surprised you were able to get a discount on a Nemo room! Good for you! Can I ask when you are going - which summer discount were you able to use (summer or late summer)? We're staying during both promotions and have had no luck getting a Nemo room guaranteed with a discount - only a family suite with a Nemo request.

grkmbee-We are going 4th of July week. I booked it right on the WDW website. It gave me the choice of all three suites for the summer deal.

We are going 8/31-9/7 and have a Nemo FS. We got a FD pin so we are not using a room discount. But we were originally boomed in the Nemo FS with the 15% discount. I thought the only room not offered on the room discount was the LM rooms??

Drawing class?

Hi- Can anyone who is there now, recently, or will be there soon verify if they still do the drawing classes? I read its only offered Thur - Sunday, but that was an old post.
Thanks.

I'm interested in this, too. Hoping to walk over from POP one day with DD & do this. Also wondering what the difference is between this & the one at HS in the Animation Academy. Should we plan to do both?

I think if you are at DHS and can fit it in, definitely do it. My kids LOVE it. We stayed at BC in August and had hoppers so there were many days we just popped in to DHS to do it.

Im hoping AoA is similar and offered often. We did not get hoppers this time and only plan on 1 DHS day so Im really hoping its good.

As for air mattresses, if you have Kohls and a Kohls card, you can regularly find their aero beds at a great price idyl get a 30% coupon! And you can do it online and check capon sites for the 30 code. My mom got a great deal on a double high one, so far it works well! They are not made as well as the standard aero beds but much better than the cheaper ones

Taking my first trip to AOA in TLM rooms from 8/8-8/18 and I cannot wait! It's just a mother daughter trip, and Ariel is my favorite princess so I'm really excited to explore the resort

Hi, I'm sorry if this has already been answered but I couldn't figure out the search terms for it.

Are you allowed to visit AA to walk around if you aren't staying there? I'm taking a day off from the parks one day to visit DD, Boardwalk, and hopefully other resort grounds. Is this possible?

Thanks!!!

I would say yes at aoa don't know about others. But you can go there and have a quick service lunch and walk around and see different themes. I actually suggest doing so. It's pretty cool

Does anyone know if the Little Mermaid section has been excluded in past free dining offers?
