    There almost certainly won't be any US public offer for free dining for August 2013 dates. The free dining offer open now for Disney Visa card holders, and opening to the public on May 9, is for arrivals starting Sept 2.

    Disney could maybe mail/email individual PINs for free dining for August dates, but there won't be a general offer.

    The standard rooms in the Little Mermaid section opened with refrigerators included. So you don't need to request one.

    Generally buildings 7 and 9 are considered potential requests as they will be somewhat closer to the main building and buses than building 8.

    Yes there are refrigerators.


    If you want to be near the parking lot request 9 (Triton). If you want a lakeside view ask for 7 (Ursula). Building 8 (Ariel) is the farthest back from foodcourt.

    We had a room in building 7, 3rd floor lakeview. Very quiet & no foot traffic.:cool1:

    Lion King is where the nightly movies are held so if you want to be near that then it's perfect. If you want a quieter room you can request non courtyard (not sure if that's what its called). Also people walk through Lion King to get to the Little Mermaid rooms so there is a lot of traffic through the courtyard itself. Since the rooms have interior hallways I don't think you would hear people walking back & forth a lot though.

    I agree. I saw on the Today Show once that some chains/ other businesses even pay people to write bad reviews for competitors. The people who have done it talked about it.

    I dont know how true it is or not because I havent been there yet but most of the reviews I have read said to choose building 6 with a lake view. I am going Friday so I can let you know for sure once I get down there!
