But it also depends on how much time you plan to spend at the resort. If you plan to spend a few waking hours at AoA per day, I would definitely say go with the suite for the added space.
I agree with everyone else, do the suite.

I booked a LM room for a night in May before we switch to AKL for the remainder of our trip. I was wondering if people had recommendations on which rooms I should request when the time comes to make such requests.

I notice the pools are all fenced in but are the two parks fenced off as well?

Building 7 did look the best to us. Thanks! You just confirmed what I figured we needed to ask for

We had building 7 in April, top floor, and faced the lake. It was so quiet and peaceful. We never even saw anyone walk past our room.

No fences surround the Righteous Reef or Elephant Graveyard playgrounds.

Has anyone tried booking a LM room for October 2014 and had luck? Doesn't matter if I try Disney or Travelocity or Orbitz, they all say there's no dates. Hotels.com says yes, but only a few. I mean, are they REALLY booked that far out for next year already? We got our room for this year back in June.

Has any one either made or found a TR from someone who has stayed at AoA for a few days or more?

I've read at least 4 or 5 trip reports from AoA stays. Go to the trip report thread and search for "animation" or "AoA" and should be able to find them.

I just selected a LM room for Oct. 6 thru Disney with no problem. I tried to select Boardwalk just for fun and there were no dates there.

So. Weird.

I'm trying to book around the end of October into the first week of November, and I swear, it's impossible right now. I'm going to smash my face into the floor if this keeps up.

Just keep calling. The same thing happened to me when the LM rooms first opened last year. I was told they were completely booked. I hung up and dialed again. After calling 3 times in the space of an hour I was told they had an opening, but no free dining. I booked the room, hung up and called again. The next cm told me they had free dining available for my stay in the LM room. Be persistent and keep calling. Good luck!

Hi. 42 days until our first stay at AOA LM.

Can someone tell me for sure if this resort has 24 hour luggage assistance?

DH had surgery yesterday to repair a torn bicep. We are driving this trip. We will also have DS 22 months. We will need help unloading the car then having them bring it to the room when we get up there. We are arriving around 8-9 pm.

I wanted to be sure they offer both services at this particular resort.

We are still taking the trip as we go often and can take this one at a very slow pace if need be.


Thank you everyone
