    In the lobby area of Animation Hall there is a drawing lesson activity held throughout the day.

    Yes, there should be room enough for you to keep your folded stroller in the room. With a single stroller in a value standard room, we tend to keep it parked in front of the window.

    Yes, the master bedrooms have a TV in addition to the TV in the main sitting area.

    Just to clarify, they don't have the towels at the pool like the moderates? First time staying at a Value, have a LM room booked for September 29th, can't wait!!! My DD (3) is OBSESSED with Ariel. She's going to LOSE HER MIND when we walk in!

    I thought someone had written on a previous thread that towels WERE available at the pools? If not, would you all bring your room towels down there? I hate to do that but I also dread filling suitcases with 5 beach towels if I really don't need to....

    No towels provided at any of the values. Must bring your own or use the room towels.

    Sometimes at Pop Century there will be a rack of extra towels in the elevator areas for those who need some for the pool or whatever. They may do this at Art of Animation too.

    But the main point is that there are no towel dispensers at the value resorts pools, so you need to plan to use your room towels. Asking for more should not be an issue.

    Eh? Everything I've seen and heard indicates that there is a tv in the bedroom with the door and a tv in the main room?

    Has anyone had any luck getting LM rooms when they are sold out? My trip is over 4 mos. out and I was only able to get a few nights there so I will be spending a lot of time on the wdw website looking for those nights to open up. I'm so worried b/c I need 2 rooms and did not anticipate them being filled this far out.

    I'm nervous ,we have 3 nights booked at AOA LM in 2 weeks and they are sold out, a little worried about crowds while at the resort.

    We're going in 2 weeks and its a pretty low-moderate crowd week. The LM rooms are always sold out, they are in high demand. I dont think any other sections are sold as i just booked one for a client the other day

    Hello! This is my very first post, although I've been lurking for awhile. We have reserved a Finding Nemo suite for Thanksgiving week. We are so excited! This will be my 4th time to DW and our 2nd family trip. I love Disney planning and these boards are great! :thumbsup2

    You should be there after Spring Break, so it should die down. But from what I have been hearing, this whole year has been more crowded than previous years, even the slow weeks. That being said, the LM rooms are just selling out fast because they are new and not many of them. I think in the next year or so, they will be open more. The distance is very far for most people. I know other resorts have rooms just as far out, but these seem even further as you have to walk outside.
    I don't mind walking, but the inconvenience to the food court for the refillable mug kind of annoyed me. This really did seem further to me than others and I stayed REALLY far out at AKL. But walking inside made it feel better or shorter.

    Can you get an adjoining standard room with a family suite?
