    We've been here for 4 days so far and while the staff is super wonderful and attentive, I feel we'll be returning to our usual villa accommodations for our next trip (this coming December).

    If you have any general questions that I might be able to answer, I'll be happy to help. (We're leaving soon to go to the pool, but I'll be sure to check replies later today).

    Are you in the suites or LM? Do you find the beds comfortable? What do you like or don't like about AoA? Given another change to stay here, would you stay at AoA again? Thanks in advance! Enjoy the rest of your stay at Disney!!

    What's the food court like? For a CS meal. can you get some of the coffee drinks as a beverage (iced latte, etc.) Have you walked over to Pop - if so, about how long did it take you to walk? THANKS!

    I have some general questions: we're a party of 6.
    Where do you hang 6 wet swimsuits to dry? Just the shower-rod?
    Is there a tablecloth for the table?
    Is there a closed trashcan for food items as this is an efficiency with a kitchenette?
    Is there enough drawer storage for 6 people's clothes?
    What was the most efficient way to get new towels since they want you to take the room ones to the pool?
    What are the TV channels? Is Disney Junior available?
    On average in the AM, how long does it take for the bus to get to MK?
    What were your thoughts on the new 'playground' in LK? Many posters dissatisfied as it isn't truly a playground area.

    thanks!!!popcorn::

    Yes please tell us more about the beds. Is the queen soft or firm? Would you consider putting your mom on the table bed?

    Does the kids' Chicken Platter come with naan, or just rice? Sauce, or just plain / dry chicken?

    Subbing - very interested in all the questions asked!

    Are all the photo ops around the hotel as cool as the ads make them appear??

    I was wondering about the different sleeping areas. We're looking at different resorts for next year. We are 3 adults and 1 child and none of us want to share a bed. Is there a sleeper sofa AND a sleeper chair in the living room? How comfortable (and what size) is the table bed? Are there 2 bathrooms, each with their own shower?

    Thanks and enjoy your trip!!!!

    Not OP, but...
    LM section doesn't open until Sept...;)
    So I know she is not there.

    I went over the bridge from POP just a couple of weeks ago to check AoA out and IMO...
    YES, There are LOTS of AWESOME Photo Ops around the Resort!! Now two weeks ago, the only sections open were Nemo and Cars. But the Photo Ops there were Fantastic!! :thumbsup2

    We are in a "Cars" suite.

    The beds do seem to be comfortable enough although the bed in the master bedroom is on the smallish-side. I think it's a queen, but it looks (and feels) small. (this is just my own opinion).

    AofA is wonderful for a value resort. You can get the feeling that you're immersed inside a cartoon because the colors are all very rich and saturated. We usually stay in 1 or 2 bedroom villas (we are *not* DVC members) so I prefer the comforts that the villas offer. I also feel, for a family, that the AofA suites are on the expensive side for what they offer. (again, jmo).

    Would I stay here again? Perhaps in the far distant future.
