We requested a pack n play and it comes with a sheet and I believe it was a Graco. The pull downs are high, however they also have bed rails as well. I am a very nervous person (especially when it comes to my children's safety) and I was very impressed with the safety (tightness, no gaps, etc) of the bed rails. They were very accommodating.

I'm not sure about the beds at AoA, I never had to use the port-a-crib that hotels supply because I bring my own bed where ever we travel. My dd even uses it in our RV. Target.com and Amazon.com sell a wonderful travel toddler bed called The Shrunks Tuckaire. Its an air mattress for toddlers. It has an inflatable side rail that the mattress sits down into so that the kids cannot roll off. The mattress takes a crib size sheet. It is nice an small when deflated about the size of a rolled up pillow. Hope this helps.

Can anyone give details on "average" early February weather in FL? As of right now, I have everything noted from jackets to shorts and tank tops.

We were there last year, last week of January/first week of February. I had heard to plan from shorts/t-shirts to jeans and sweatshirts. I wore capris and t-shirts all week. We only used our jackets one morning when the weather was in the 60s, but it warmed up quickly. The warmest day we had was about 85. I don't know if that's average, but it was welcome to us coming from the midwest!

Haha! I'll take anything that's 40 degrees and up at this point. It's been so miserable in PA, winters are the worst.

Here is the activities flyer for January. (This link always reflects the latest available.)

The February flyer won't be available until February 1, but you'll be on site anyway.

For those who have stayed in the LM rooms, should we try for a 1st floor room or a top floor room? I like the ease of a first floor room, but at the same time wouldn't mind the views of a third floor room. I guess it comes down to noise. Is there alot of noise from above on the first floor rooms?

I believe we stayed on the second floor in October, and man almighty was it quiet. We were close to the elevators, too, which surprised me by the lack of noise.
