Hi, just back from ASMo. We stayed in the Love Bug section. There is no DVD player, only the TV. We had a wonderful time there. Very quite section and not a bad walk. The motel is showing some age, but we would stay again. We had great mousekeepers, especially a few days that they "staged" my grandsons toys. Always brought extra towels to the room if we needed them, everyone was helpful and polite. We did have our own vehicles, so used them most of the time. Used the buses to MK and would recommend that to everyone. Buses will drop you off at the gate at MK, if you drive, you have to take a monorail or ferry to the main gate from the parking lot. One word of advise, avoid the food court in the mornings between 8:30 and 10:00.....it was wild......

When we arrived at ASMovies both of our rooms had towels on the bed in the shape of Mickey. I have never had a towel animal ever! so i was excited to see this!! lol




Some people said the foodcourt was crowded and it was! In the mornings and late at night after the parks closed it seemed everyone stormed the food court. The lines were very long... and in the mornings it was hard to find a seat. Oh another thing, it seemed none of the ice at the soda fountains were filled. Just small stuff... but I had a wonderful time...and I dont regret staying there.. Im actually glad I was able to experinece another resort besides Pop. Over at ASMusic they had movie night every night at the pool, but we never made it over there to check it out..

I noticed they moved all the "family sized" snacks like the big bag of chips (including chip n dale's snacks )and donuts into the store. Last time at Pop they were in the foodcourt. I guess because they changed the the dining plan, only includes single portions for snack options, maybe they decided to move the big bags/boxes out of the foodcourt.. Also, no bottled soda in the foodcourt, only sold in the resort store.. they also sell the Full Throttle energy beverage in the store as well.

Also, the refillable mugs are "year of a million dreams" all the same.. not the standard "All Star Movies" mugs. I saw some people who must have brought back the regular ASMovies mug to use. (drink stealers) lol =P

Mousekeeping showed up every morning about the same time.. early! If you plan on sleeping in, put the do not disturb sign up.. They were there like clockwork at 8:30-8:45am... but we had really clean rooms and extra towels and soap without asking for them...

We were in room 0742 and 0743



my brother on RC.. we walked by him everyday on our way to the busses and foodcourt



It was really cute! The HUGE Door "Andy's Room" was the doorway into the Toy Story section.



The Pool was always very warm too.. lots people swimming even late at night after midnight...

If I think of any other tidbits I'll definetely post them!!

=D

Ok, well i got the phn number off the front page and I did indeed call them. She said that I need to call 7 days before we arrive and order it. She wasn't able to give me cake sizes flavours or costs . She insisted that 7 days out I can get all that information. So I know they offer it, but I'm big on planning and would like to know my options. If I don't like the options, I will have to get a cake elsewhere.

By the sounds of it, the cafeteria area would offer fountain soda, with or without your refillable mug. I can see this making sense. If all you want is something to drink, would make more sense to go to the shop then the cafeteria and wait in lines just for a drink.

I believe they also sell bottles of soda in the food court. I know for sure the food court has bottled beer.

yes, beer and wine and juice/milk... vitimin water, bottled water.. V8, powerade.. Im sure others as well. but no coke, diet coke, sprite etc.. nothing that you could get in the fountain drinks.. all those bottles were sold in the gift shop. You could buy the bottled beer and bring it with you anywhere, back to your room, the pool wherever. I saw a lot of people doing that. Oh I was disapointed that ASMovies didnt have frozen coke =( I know pop had it for your refillable mugs. The beer was between $5 and $6. not bad.

You can also order a cake once you get there through the food court. Unless you want something fancy, the cakes that I have ordered through Disney are pretty much all the same. My husband ordered me a birthday cake at the small bakery at the food court.

Happy Planning!
