Thanks for the Info!

Thanks so much for the elevator information - I should have looked at the map first Does anyone know if there are any trick-or-treat activities at Disneyworld other than the Halloween Party (Extra fee)? We will be there for Halloween and I would love for my two year old to be able to trick or treat.

Thanks so much!

In fact, they painted the bones on the concrete the first couple of days were were there and appeared to finish up their work before Labor Day.

Also, I noticed that during our stay, the soap/shampoo dispenser in our room was removed and was replaced with actual soap and shampoo! I guess they did it while we were in the parks!

I found the Dalmatians section to be much more **** and span than Toy Story. I'm sure Toy Story's renovation is on it's way soon!
How difficult was it to change buildings to connecting rooms? Did they give you a hard time? We are traveling with another family, and we both reserved two rooms for our large families. We requested connecting rooms (so two sets of connecting rooms) in Toy Story. I wonder if they'll be able to fulfill our request? We leave in 11 days!

I have always gotten the rooms I have requested. I found that the secret is to send a fax to the Room Assignor for the hotel about 3 days before you get there and choose 3 different sets of rooms to choose from. If you do that - you are bound to get one of the three sets of adjoining. It has always worked for me..... I have very few bad things to say about the staff in Disney. Have fun and good luck!

I think I'm sold on ASMo!

Just a few questions...

1) Are there any large groups that typically visit the first and second week of December?

2) The Fantasia buildings are "preferred" and $10/extra because they are closest to the bus stop and the food court?

3) Do they add an extra charge in a preferred room if you request a king size bed?

4) How often do the buses come by to pick up? We've never stayed on site and I am concerned about waiting a long time for a bus with a very excited little girl!

oooh--I also forgot...

Can anyone tell me if and how they decorate for Christmas?

If you wanted to get some late night snacks to keep in your room (chips, candy bars, etc) can these be found at the gift shop?

Who delivers the pizza to the room? Is it the hotel itself, or a national vendor, like Pizza Hut?

The pizza comes from the food court at the All Star Movies.... It's pretty good, especially when you are tired from a day at the park and they deliver it to your room!!!

We are going the week around Easter (the 14th to the 21st of April - Easter is the 16th). We have reservations for ASMo (connecting rooms) and were looking for a building close to the bus stop away from the pool area (too much noise). The CM recommended the Toy Story building - is this a good choice? We have two girls who will be 4 and 2 the time of the trip. Would the Dalmation building be any better/worse? They are more into them than Toy Story but it's not that big of a deal to us either way. Thanks...

I would choos Bldg 1 (Pongo) or Bldg 10 (Buzz Lightyear)

My personal preference is Buzz, because the courtyard is just so darn cute.

I have not heard of any. The 2 weeks following Thanksgiving are the lowest attendance weeks.

Yes, but not worth it in my opinion. The way the resort is laid out Dalmatians is the same distance, and Toy Story is barely any further. I have stayed in Herbie twice. It is real easy to cut through the fantasia buildings to access services. The only "far" buildings are Mighty Ducks. THye are closer to the All Star Music Bus Stop than the ASMo Bus Stop.

Call the front desk and ask (Phone # is on the first post) I really don't know.

The stock answer is every 20 minutes. THe real answer is "it depends" THe busses are not on a set route. THe entire system is an on-demand system. WHen they know lots of people will be waiting, they double stack the busses. ASMo typically gets it's own busses, while sports and music have to share. During low season all three share bus routes.

I am considering taking my kids next august. I want to stay in toy story or dalmations and would be rather disappointed to be put into herbie or mighty ducks. I would be willing to pay extra for guaranteed location, which I guess only happens with the fantasia building. If I were to book a standard room and request toy story or dalmations and then find they are both fully booked when I arrived, what would be my chances of upgrading at check in to fantasia - I would be paying the difference? Is fantasia generally less or more booked up than the rest of the resort?

Question, I have an 11 yr old son in a wheelchair. Which building makes the most sense for us? Non smoking of course. We asked for Toy Story but if thats not the best I'll switch. Thanks everyone.

Is the arcade a full blown arcade? Is it tokens or quarters that you have to insert?
