Your packages will be at Bell Services. You can pick them up yourself or call from your room and they will bring them up. Though if you have them bring them up it's customary to tip them.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be going to WDW in May!!! I just know my kids will love the Cars theme. Hopefully my 3 year old doesn't realize we could have stayed in a Nemo room because she's a Nemo fanatic. However, all three of them like Cars, and majority rules. She will love the Nemo pool.

I have a couple questions that I'm hoping you all might be able to answer.

1. Are you able to take food from the Landscape of Flavors restaurant back to your room? I can't even begin to list all the ways in which it would be helpful for DH to run down and grab food for the rest of us. Getting 3 kids dressed in the morning, ready for bed, naps, after kids fall asleep at night, etc. Do they have carryout boxes or anything?

2. Does the gift shop have a good selection of Finding Nemo clothes and toys? We live so close to a Disney Store, but they have barely anything Nemo themed these days. When Finding Nemo came back out a couple years back, they had lots of stuff. My daughter is still squeezing into her 2 sizes too small pink Nemo shirt.

Thanks!

Yup. This is my job as well, works out great.

This one I can't help with.

Went back and forth where to stay. Happy to say we will be staying at AOA in March in the Cars suite.

Gah! I'm sitting here waiting for an email from my TA with the link to make my deposit to make it official! Time passes so slowly when you are waiting for an email.

We showed our six year old son a video tour of the Cars suite and he was so excited, he was physically shaking. I think we made the right choice.

Next time we go back to Disney we will be staying here. Last time we stayed at the Polynesian and as much as I loved it, it was a bit expensive and I want something more kiddie themed. Im currently pregnant with baby 2 so we will be holding off for at least 2yrs. We live in the UK and flying long haul with a baby is no fun. So baby will be at least 2 and current daughter will be 5.
Iam loving the Nemo family suites and my daughter is Little Mermaid crazy, does anyone know if the mermaid rooms come in family suites? Iam so excited to get this booked and can't wait.

Congrats on the new little one!

No, the LM rooms are standard rooms. Suites are Finding Nemo, Lion King and Cars.

Online Check-In Question

Hi! Just getting ready to do online check-in for our Lion King suite. Any recommendations about special requests, such as building number/location, top floor, bottom floor, etc.?

TIA!

Once on the bus, the ride should be about:

DHS 5-7 minutes
Epcot 7-10 minutes
AK 10-15 minutes
MK 15-20 minutes

Returning from MK tends to take longer as they typically take a different route back than the one they use to arrive.

And one more question - if we request a top floor room for our Lion King Suite, does each building have an elevator or just stairs?

Thanks.

All AoA buildings have elevators.
