    My boyfriend and I are considering booking a trip for this December and are unsure of where to stay. We want to stay in the LM rooms, but i'm skeptical. At the moment i'm super tired and can't really read through the HUGE AOA thread to find info and opinions about the LM rooms, so can anyone help me out? People are saying the rooms are super small and i'm concerned about the beds. Does anyone know about the rooms with king beds and how simple is it to book a king sized bed room instead of the doubles? Your opinions and quick info would greatly help us :hug:

    A king bed room is a REQUEST only! So If you really want a king bed room, I would pick POP over an AoA LM room because there are VERY few king rooms in LM. You'll have a much better chance getting one at POP But it still won't be a guarantee!

    We stayed at AoA LM room for 1 night on 12/29. Got our request for a king bed and loved everything about the resort. DH and I are not value fans at all but we both agreed that we would stay at AoA again. It is just a gorgeous resort.

    We have stayed at POP numerous times and our last trip was at AoA LM section. We would choose AoA over POP any day. We absolutely loved it at AoA!!!

    I chose Pop because those LM rooms are far from the main hall where the dining and shopping are.

    Also there are very few LM King bed rooms where Pop has more available so you are more likely to get your request.

    Please remember that a king bed is also a request and you may not get one.

    We stayed in a king room at LM in October and loved it. There was plenty of room for my husband, son and I, but there's not a lot of space to store clothing. It is a little bit of a walk, but not excessive. I'm going back in May and am gonna try out Pop mainly because it will just be me with my 5 year old son. I was a little concerned about getting him back to the LM room if he's asleep and I'm carrying him and our gear since I won't be using a stroller for this trip. If I didn't have kids to worry about transporting then I would definitely do AoA again!

    Well we aren't really picky. The king sized be would just be more convenient for the obvious reasons. The double beds look like twins to me, so super close cuddle sleeping would be the option as opposed to being able to stretch out more with the king. I was also concerned about the distance from the main hall/ buses. Honestly is it THAT big of a distance to where it would make us lose time? I don't want to take a chance on us missing a bus, causing us to wait like 20 more minutes for another. Speaking of buses, how are they for AOA? Sorry for all the questions >.< I'm just concerned and super excited about this trip if it happens.
