    I totally understand. That is why I didn't step up to the plate to make a FAQ page. (Maybe Smitch will - she seems to be on top of things.) I love the excitement in the air! It is all so new!

    There are a bunch of photos in this thread
    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2934412&page=12

    On page 4, there are some photos of the food court. I think there is one photo of the construction of the LM rooms (on the 4th page). There are pics of the pool somewhere in the thread as well.

    Also, Josh from easywdw.com posted a ton of photos.

    He has other entries posted about AoA. That was his second entry with photos and info. about AoA.

    Part 2! Love it.
    We'll be in a Little Mermaid room for just 2 nights in early December. We'll be at CSR for 5 days prior for work meetings and a Christmas party, but it's the LM room at the end that we're really excited for.
    Ok, except we aren't ALL excited because it's a surprise for DD, the Ariel lover. She thinks all 7 nights will be at the CSR.
    I can't wait!
    :cool1:

    We're sort of doing the same thing. We'll be at POR for 3 nights before we check into our Lion King suite for 6 nights. DS thinks we're staying all 9 nights at POR. Told him AoA wouldn't be open in time for our trip. Good thing he's just learning to read. ;)

    I will be checking in a LM room on 9/15/12 so I will report back on the coffee maker (or lack of one - hopefully not!). :)

    Do you know if this hotel or any of the value hotels have cots or rollaway beds? Our family fits in the standard rooms so we would like to save the money and book a standard. It would just be more comfortable for the children if we had a cot for one of them. I just really dont want to spend the $1000 a wk price diffrence for a family suite. Anyone know?

    Great! I saw that Disney serves Nescafe and DH loves his coffee, so we will bring our own coffee maker if there are none in the room. We have a small one I use (I drink decaf) that does not have any glass on it.

    Regular rooms at value resorts (Pop and All Star) at Disney do not have coffee makers in the rooms. I expect the LM rooms will not have coffee makers either because they are regular non-suite rooms, but we won't know for certain until they open.

    Reports are that rollaway beds are available at Pop Century so I would assume they would be available for the LM rooms once they open.

    I thought they changed brands, or is that in the park only?

    Hi Kristy. I've looked at a million sites, threads, etc, lately, and it seems to me that I saw, on an official Disney site, that they don't want you to bring your own coffee maker. They said it was a fire hazard. Why would it be more of a hazard than the pots in the suites? I don't know. Maybe just because they can't control what brand, how old, etc. Anyway, I tried looking again now, and can't find where I saw it before.

    So, you can pretend you never read this, or you think I'm a crackpot (that won't hurt my feelings:crazy:), you can leave the pot at home and struggle through with Nescafe, or you can unplug and "put away" the coffee maker when you are leaving the room, both for fire safety and to avoid any Dis hassles. KWIM?

    Hi, I am checking in. LM 10/31 (MNNSHP) thru 11/6
    I have a ticker question and feel SO STUPID! I have tried multiple times to add a ticker onto my signature and am just doing something wrong. Can one of you guide me like the non-tech I am? I also (after going thru my parents photo albums) want to add all of my Disney visits too. THANK YOU!

    Disney has not changed away from Nescafe in either the parks or the resorts.

    What they are doing is adding one specific Starbucks location per (each) U.S. park in addition to Nescafe everywhere else in the parks.

    At this time California Adventure has the new Starbucks location on Buena Vista Street. The remaining US parks have yet to add or announce the spots for Starbucks, but the word is five more are coming.
