Thanks!
I would be at the bus stop by 7:15.

Entertaining the idea of a finding nemo suite for our August trip...if so, what are good requests to make? Easy access to food court and bus. View of lake perhaps?

Yes there is a mini fridge in the room!
What fireworks are you guys seeing from the rooms?

Yeah the fireworks are from Epcot but I believe more can be seen than just those but I could be wrong. I thought I saw other fireworks off in the distance. Maybe I'm loosing it

To answer some other questions floating around:
The pools are heated.

In a Nemo suite I would request close to the food court although there really isn't a bad spot in that section.

I didn't notice any payphones.

The WiFi was spotty. Sometimes it was good in the room and other times it was not.

For an 8:20 AM ADR at Epcot, I would be at the bus stop at 7AM. Leave yourself enough time for the bus to come, load, transport you and then getting through security check at the park, walking through to the WS and then checking into the restaurant.

Not 24 hrs for the food court, but the food court is open from 6am to midnight. There is also a refill station at the The Drop Off pool bar. I don't know the hours on that station -- it may be 24 hours, but I am not sure.

I'm pretty sure the refill station at the pool has the same metal window thingie that closes it off when the bar does.

I think I've read that the pools are heated but they didn't feel like it while we were there. Maybe it is seasonal?

We had wifi in the room and didn't have any trouble with it.

I'm not sure about payphones. If there are any I'm guessing they'd be in the lobby area.

Payphone? What's a payphone? Do you mean a pre - paid cell phone?

Ha ha. Just kidding! I'm well over 20 and remember those

[QUOTE="Rowanonfire"]Just thought of a few more questions!

1. Are the pools heated? What are the normal opening hours for these?


As far as heated pools go,it is supposed to be but when we stayed this past March the water was so cold both in morning and afternoon.

Thanks for the responses guys! Very helpful. =) Needed to know about the payphones especially as we're from the UK so the cost of calling home on the room phones would be extortionate! Good to know there is one. =)

Just our if curiosity, whereabouts in the LM rooms is the mini-fridge? How many bottles of water etc will it fit?

We use Skype to call home to Canada. Not always the clearest but it's free!
