I have a bit of a dilemma that I am hoping you wonderful folks can help me out with. We are planning DD5's first trip to WDW for April 15, 16, and 17th. I have made necessary reservations for BBB and Cindy's Breakfast, but we have been putting off booking room and tickets (mainly due to financial obligations). I went to book today, and just as I feared, the AoA LM rooms are not available for all three nights in April. DD is a HUGE Little Mermaid fan, so staying in these rooms at least some of the trip is a MUST. Here's the dilemma: The LM room is available for April 15 and the 17th, just not the 16th. Our plans are to check into a room on Monday, the 15th, explore the resort. Tuesday, the 16th, catch the opening ceremonies at MK, and Wednesday, the 17th we have an 8:05 BBB ressie followed by breakfast at the castle. We will check out early Thursday morning to head back home. Do we stay at AoA on the first night (the 15th) and then stay the following two nights at Pop Century? Or, stay at Pop Century the first two nights and AoA on the last day? I've never done a split before and am curious as to how it will work out. We plan to book tickets with our room- will our park tickets for the 16th and 17th be on the room key for the first night's stay? Will a new room key be issued when we do the split? Can we check out early from the first night, head to MK bright and early on Tuesday, and check into our new room late that night (We will have to stay for fireworks, you know). It's all so overwhelming! Also- ideally we want to stay at AoA all three nights. Is there still hope that a room might come open for the 16th? If I book the split, will I be penalized for switching to AoA? Thank you all so much for your help in advance! It's so overwhelming! I just want this trip to be perfect for DD. When I told her the rooms were unavailable this morning tears just filled her eyes. She didn't throw a bratty tantrum, she was just heartbroken. Of course, I promised to do everything in my power to at least get one night's stay in the LM rooms.
