Hi, I posted this in the main resort forum, but that was before I found this spectacular thread!! So copying and pasting:

Just wondering about this ahead of time, not really important, but if anyone has the answer I'd be happy to know it.
Ok, our trip is the first week of October. It will be the first trip to the World for my mom, her boyfriend, and my younger sister. My mother is a smoker (I know, bad, but I cant stop her, she's a big girl ), and so we have two connecting, smoking rooms booked. They are also preferred rooms. So does anyone know exactly where the preferred smoking rooms are at AS Movies? I think they are in Fantasia 2000, but not entirely sure.
This is just for my own curiosity, it really doesnt matter, but maybe someone else has been in the same situation and has the answer.
Thanks a bunch!!

I have a quick question.....

Alarm clocks:

Are they furnished or do I bring my own??

Hair Dryers:

Does every room have one mounted on the wall or should I bring my own??

(can't wait for our 1st onsite trip at ASMo in about a month!!!!)

Hopefully I can help some of the most recent posters out...

As far as smoking goes...I was in a non-smoking room. There was a little card in the room saying no smoking in this room please....if you are a smoker please let the housekeeper/front desk know and they will provide you with an ashtray (or something to that effect...but written more fancy-like, lol)

Anyway...nobody in my party smokes. BUT...the room next to us did. When we returned to our rooms one day we found an ashtray sitting on top of the fire extinguisher that was in between our rooms (our room was 9724...theirs was 9723). Once in a while we would see the couple having a puff on the sidewalk area. I do not like cigarette smoke at all and honestly I can say that I didn't find the pair offensive in any way. The smoke odor did not migrate over into our room. And on the chance occasion we walked past them while they were having their puff, it was not nearly as bad as when we walked past any smoking area inside the parks. Inside the parks you can definitely tell when you are walking past the smoking area.

Someone else asked about the hair dryer...yes there is one, but it is a small travel-type dryer. If you have short hair it is fine to use, but if you like to flip your hair over and dry it that way, then its no good. I was worried my daughter's hair was going to get sucked into the back of the hair dryer when she was using it.

Alarm clocks...yes there is an alarm clock. We didn't use it ever because we used the wake-up call feature on the resort phone. All you have to do is touch a button on your phone and then enter your wake up time and then confirm it and hang up. Couldn't be simpler.


Hope this helps with the planning!

Jennifer.

Yes on both parts. Alarm clocks and hair driers in every room.

Yes, there is a gift shop. I want to say that they closed around 11pm or midnight. They sell a nice selection of things including autograph books. They do sell microwave popcorn and regular already popped popcorn, but the already popped kind is either cheesy, caramel, or something like that.

Anything else in particular that I can help you with?? Just LMK.

Movies

Brilliant value hotel. We stayed in Lovebug 7, third floor. Excellent - quiet, clean, a few minutes walk to pool and food court, disney buses excellent. What problem with barely a five minute walk to the pool, reception, food court? We walked the entire movies hotel complex in minutes! For the price paid, the clean room, pool, etc. more than adequate, and great value Well done Movies! And the mousekeeping? Brilliant!

Yes, you should call and make the request before you arrive as it's first come first serve.

I already have that request on my reservation.

It's $10 per day.

How has bus service been lately? There was a post a couple of pages ago with complaints about bus service? When was the last time the rooms were renovated?
Thanks.
