We just got back from 6 nights in the LM section, and I didn't find it to be shabby at all. (or the lobby or the food court) The lobby was very cheery!

Which building were you in? What is the name of the farthest building ?

Like I said, our room was the very last room of the furthest building.

























I hope that wasn't too much AoA spam for you all! We so loved staying in that room, and can't wait to get there again!!

We were in building 7, 2nd floor....can't remember the exact room number, but facing the pool and close to the ariel building. I had requested that building, but had also requested a lake view and close to the LK section. So, 1 out of 3 requests were made the noise at the pool wasn't bad...we weren't really around during the day to notice it, I'm sure it was worse then, but at night it died down fairly early.

Thanks! I think I will try for 7 or 9.

When do you request a particular LM building? Close to when the reservation is?

You can note it on your online check-in and then FAX the same request a week before arrival.

Ditto! I believe we stayed in 9, Triton tower?

Small note to those looking at the LM Room: When they say to be prepared for the walk back to your room after a day at the park, they aren't kidding. It's not impossible to handle, but after say, a night of MNSSHP, you tend to drag along the sidewalks hoping your room will magically drop in front of you.

And another thing- most nights when we returned around the 11-1AM block, sprinklers were in full force inside the LK Savannah, and on the outer ring leading to the LM rooms. Just in case any of y'all wanted a free shower back to the room


The only thing, which I will probably mention a million more times in my TR as soon as I start it, was the food court occasionally smelled AWFUL. Like mold and vomit and unwashed bodies awful. I couldn't eat there some days because of it, and on the day we left when I went back in for a soda refill before the bus showed up, the smell was in full force to the point where it made me nauseous enough to toss my full cup within minutes of refilling it. Just thinking about it is turning my gut.

You can call the Walt Disney Travel Company at any time to add a building request to your reservation, or ask them to add it when you make the reservation. You don't need to wait until you get close to your arrival date.

Online check-in typically doesn't provide an ability to specify a building number request if that's what you want to add. Also, faxing requests isn't recommended as most WDW resorts don't accept faxes anymore.

Thanks! Someone posted a couple of weeks ago that he requested online and sent a FAX. So, now it is basically just a phone request and luck?

I believe you can make certain requests online but specific building numbers isn't one of those (I think it's a list of pre-determined requests that you choose from -- but I've never done online check-in so I'm only going by my memory of what I've read). And when you check in, if you don't like the location of your room, you can ask if there is a room that better suits your needs available. Sometimes there is, sometimes there isn't, but it never hurts to ask.

Thanks! We were able to change locations at POR and did receive what we requested at ASMo and POFQ without faxing in anything...so, we'll see what happens especially because I booked online where I couldn't put in any type of request.

Last summer I did Online Check-in for AoA. I could only check 2 requests out of about 10. It was things like top floor, ground floor, near transportation. There may have been section requests for the Suites like Nemo, Cars or Lion King but definitely not specific buildings.

little mermaid king bed

I admit i didnt read the entire thread but I did try to search and couldnt find answer. We have little mermaid standard room reserved. Did it all online. I see that there are limited number of king sized beds available. How do I get one of those? I filled out online check in and there is no place to request this.

Thanks

For a king bed room request, you'll need to call Walt Disney Travel Company and have them add that to your reservation.
