We were just there Sept 13 - 21, and we did not have any bugs in our room. We were in Fantasia.

We're headed to ASMo next month. I want to request Toy Story section -- anything else I should consider requesting? We've had mixed results on requests, so I know how that all works. We do have young kids with us, will be driving and don't mind high floors, although we are powering through a short holiday trip this time.

Any other recs while we are there?

TIA!

It's Florida, and your room door faces outside. Bugs happen.

We didn't see any bugs in our room. One night we left the door open a little too long and a mosquito flew in, but that's about it. There were a few big grasshoppers around but none of them made it inside.

As far as room locations go, we were in the Woody section a few doors down from the ice machine (convenient) and facing the trees in the back. It was nice and quiet...until a family checked in next door to us and made all kinds of noise starting at 5am and going as late as 1am. There was an adjoining door and you could hear everything. Glad I brought ear plugs.

The only other problem we had was with cigarette smoke. One night I smelled smoke coming through our AC vent, so I shut it off. Peeked outside and there was a man a few doors down smoking outside his room. DH called the front desk to see if that's allowed; apparently it isn't, they are supposed to smoke in a designated smoking area. We had to turn the air off a few more times because of the smoke, even after he was told by security not to smoke there. I'm not usually one to complain about stuff like that (let the smokers be), but it was really stinking up the room, and the Florida humidity without AC is no bueno.

We did not see any in Sept. If you would by chance get a bug in your room, ask for another room. It can't be widespread, if really occurring much at all, or there would be mass panic.

The roaches I'm sure are what they call down south "water bugs" and they are very common. It doesn't imply the resort is dirty or anything. I rented a very expensive 8 bedroom oceanfront house and we saw several that week. They look like horror movie cockroaches. Not fun. When I called to complain they said they spray for bugs regularly but it is impossible to keep them all out. We have encountered them several times since in South Carolina and Florida. YIKES. I'm not sure if there is actually any difference in a roach and a water bug but I thought this might be helpful.

Toaster in the food court?

Does anyone know if there is a toaster available for guest use in the food court? I searched and saw a couple of posts from 2008 and 2009, but I know things can change. I'd like to bring a pack of English muffins and some peanut butter but the thought of eating them untoasted makes me feel

Thanks!

We got free dining at All Star Movies in September. It is the Quick Service. We upgraded to the regular dining plan.

Have a great trip!!
