    That makes sense! Thanks! I was going to look hour by hour once it gets much much closer.

    Don't worry- its been saying that for weeks. We went a few Septembers ago and we had quick showers a few days but they passed quickly. We'll arrive 10/13 and it shows sun, partly cloudy.

    It totally depends on where you look since whatever is on my phone shows rain all week. I will look online wen it gets closer. :) I don't rely on weather reports until a few days before anyway. I am just getting excited!!

    I'm sooooo thrilled to back on the boards! I booked our next trip to Disney! March cannot come soon enough. This will be my first time not at Pop, but I'm excited to go to the other side of Hourglass Lake/Generation Gap bridge. I've been watching the construction for so long, I'm excited to see the finished product!

    ADR's done!!!!!! So excited!!!!!!

    :cheer2::cool1:

    Do Senseo pods fit the Cuisinart coffee makers in the family suites? I'm not finding much when I google Cuisinart coffee pods. Or is there something else I should be googling to find some coffee to bring with me?

    Okay I have to rearrange my trip next year a bit and I'm thinking of getting a little mermaid room. My current ressie is for POR but my husband doesn't want to go anymore and no one else wants to go or can afford it so I'm solo! The only reason I was going for POR was for my husband who didn't really want mega themeing! My other choices are Pop (which I've stayed at twice) and ASMo which I've stayed at a few times but not for a long while. I'm leaning towards AoA even though it's a little more expensive. Should I go ahead and change me ressies to AoA mermaid?!

    *UPDATE!* Went ahead and changed to Little Mermaid! :hyper:

    I'd keep an optimistic view! Weather can change a lot in 10 days and often does. Plus the weather man isn't always right! You'll have fun either way! :cool1:

    If it's rainy it means a smaller crowd at the parks so I will take whatever they give me!

    We're at 9 days now and I am waiting for my Disney rewards to come from my Visa ($246!!). They gave me a $200 credit for signing up.

    I feel like I have not planned enough (I still need to make my touring plans, not sure what I am waiting for!). I still need to buy MNSSHP tickets and do online check in. I actually had a question and I remember I was going to post it on the boards and not this thread but I cannot remember what I wanted to ask!!

    If you stayed in LM then try Pop Century. It's right across the bridge and set up in the same way as the LM section. It's fun and cute and you'll really enjoy it if you enjoyed AoA little mermaid!

    honestly I'm still surprised ANY theme park still allows smoking, let alone one of the most popular in the world!:confused3

    We have Virgin Mobile which uses Sprint towers and get pretty dismal service just about everywhere. You'll find people complain about service and praise service for every carrier. It's different for everyone so take any complaints or praising with a grain of salt. Personally I don't feel WiFi is necessary 99% of the time.

    Just added a night onto my stay in January! Staying four nights in the Little Mermaid room and now one night in a Lion King suite as no Little Mermaid rooms were left at this stage. No complaints here though. They are my two favourite Disney movies! :)

    I bought Melitta coffee pods. It says they fit all pod coffee makers. I don't think Senseo ones do.

    It's not a pod coffee machine - they use flat individual coffee filters like what is in the picture below.

    (Disclaimer: not actual coffee pot from AoA - just using it to show the filters. :teeth: )

    Those flat things are pods. It doesn't use K-cups. I'm assuming that's what you mean.

    Could not agee with this post more !!! Basically, our sentiments exactly ! We are currently here (LM, Sect 8).. Our 2nd day---- We stay at CBR every other visit, but when our DD saw the Lil mermaid rooms on-line, she went nuts !! Now, even she misses CBR !!! (shes 6) -

    Dont get me wrong--- the theming/artwork are amazing, but overall, just not our cup of tea--- Like the food court, but agree with others---- the service is extemely slow, especially, when you are ready to pay- Not too crazy about the setup either--- reminds me of Sunshine Food Court at EPCOT-

    The noise didnt get to us too much--- we ate there twice so far, and both times, we were able to find a section thats pretty quiet--- The gift shop is OK, but could not believe that we couldnt find some "groceries" to take back to take back to the room (we had to go back to the food court to buy them)

    (Normally, at CBR, we will buy a box of donuts and some bread and peanut butter for the kids, in case they want a snack)-- didnt see these items at the gift shop. The bus service has been ok at far as the time waiting, but both yesterday and today, packed both leaving the hotel, and going back-

    The worst part for us was the walk to the bus stop this morning--- you are basically zig-zagging thru a ton of people-- (most leaving/entering the food court) - Its seemed to take forever to get to the bus-

    The rooms are OK, but the beds are pretty small, and not much drawer space-

    Overall, a nice hotel, and as always, having a great time (btw, LOVE the arcade), but glad we are booked at CBR in November !!

    I keep reading how the food court is so crowded and while I'm not sure how many nights we'll be there for dinner anyway, it makes me hesitant to eat there.

    I think we'll be doing some resort hopping for dinner anyway a couple of times. I'm not sure which ones I want to go to just yet (these would be for CS meals).

    My DH has decided to become a vegetarian (about a week ago). I'm hoping there are a lot of options for him in different places. I am sure there are!
