Just stop by the front desk or concierge desk at Music for the schedule! (Or the front desk at the other two themes should be able to pull it up on the computer.)
The schedule is also posted by the back door leading towards the pool each day.

They do have life jackets for the kids. When we stayed there in 2004, we picked them up in the arcade, but that may have changed by now. Regardless of where they keep them, they are available.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for letting me know!

Does anyone know if the life jackets are still in the arcade or at another location?

Can't wait for ASMo!!

My family of 4 is staying at ASMo for 9 nights... How many dresser drawers are there in the rooms, and hangers also.... Can I request more hangers, or should I bring my own?

Thanks

There were two deep drawers underneath the television set and four in the part of the dresser next to the television. As for hangers, there were six wooden ones.

I never really thought about bringing extra hangers but that proably wouldn't be a bad ideal.

I was hoping for a Movies remodel as well. We are staying at the end of September. Last year we were at ASMu and the remodeled rooms are far better that the old ones. Much more room to put suff. There dressers have a lot more room and there are shelves on the side. There are even pegs on the wall to hang towels or whatever. It is easier to keep the room organized so the room actually seems bigger. We even had a curtain seperating the sink area from the rest of the room.

Hello, all! I have just changed my reservation from POFQ to ASMovies so that I could spend the extra money in the parks and am a little worried about the noise. Both DD and I are light sleepers and I've read about it being a bit noisy between children being too loud and the toilets flushing...I was wondering if there's anything in the room you can put on for white noise, such as a ceiling fan, or if the air conditioners make any noise? If I brought a noise machine and turned it up enough, would it drown out people noise if you have noisy neighbors? This is my biggest fear of the trip....neither of us do very well on little sleep or sleep interruptions so I am trying to prepare for this ahead of time. Any tips on what works for you?

I'm really excited about my change in plans. I think my DD will enjoy this resort much more than POFQ! Do they sell yogurt in the food court?

Hi Everyone! I'm staying at Movies right now and can answer some questions. I'm actually sitting at Disney Quest emailing while the DS's and DH play.

You can request more hangars for your room. We asked for more right at the front desk when we were checking in and got some.Towels too!

There is a life vest box right by the pool.

We are in the Fantasia building and it is super quiet. They actually moved us there from Music because we were kept up all night by our neighbors when we first got there.

Rooms could use a touch up, a little worn. There is no privacy curtain which would be nice seeing as I am the only girl and my boys are older now!

There are some pegs on the wall to hang stuff.

We unpacked and brought a pop up hamper to keep the dirties and that is working nicely.

That's it for now!
