AoA questions (Buses, distances etc)
Does AoA still have their own dedicated bus service?

From the LM rooms is it a long walk to the buses, food, etc?

What are some good rooms to ask for in the LM section

We visited AoA yesterday and yes the LM wing is a long distance from the main pool and food locations. Don't know about their own bus service because I didn't notice this while we were walking around. Curios to hear about this resort because thinking about staying there. NExt fall.

Yes, they have their own bus. We are at Pop, but my sister is at AoA, so we have used the bus a few times.

They do have their own busses. We stayed in Little Mermaid and didn't think the walk was bad. King Tritan and Ursula's building are closer to Animation Hall/busses than Ariel. For quickest walk to bus I'd go with Tritan and walk the path between the building and parking lot all the way to the bus, not going through Animation Hall.

I was there in OCtober. As PPers have said, yes to the own buses.

I am a runner and _I_ thought it was quite the hike from LM to food court or buses. (We were in Triton.) So much so that I never used the refillable mugs other than meals. I WISH I had measured, but my best guess is 1/4 to 1/3 mile, one way.

We just got back from a 2 week trip and stayed in the LM rooms building 9 (Triton) third floor. We did tno find the walk to the food court much longer than the one we had when we stayed at POR. The only time it really seemed long was when you were coming back from the Big Blue Pool and the wind would blow at you and make you much colder. The wind through the LK area was pretty intense sometimes. The scenery is so nice that we found ourselves enjoying the walk to and from the main area and even did the walk to Pop almost daily to eat at their food court.

We had a pool facing room even though we asked for a lake or grass facing one but did not notice the noise at all. We felt that it was a very quiet resort and we all slept great.

They do have their own bises and liked being able to jump on the AoA bus or the Pop bus to come back (whichever came first). Between these two resorts we never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus, even after the Halloween party.

AoA does have its own buses. The lines are usually fine as buses are maybe 5 minutes in between each other for each park (10:00 bus leaves to MK, 10:05 new bus for MK arrives) was our experience.

LM is not as far as many make it seem. Triton building is the closest, then Ursula, farthest Ariel. 5 minute walk if you walk slow, 2 minute if youre fast.

Coming back from the parks, buses are usually lining up right after each other (once again, our experience). If you are lucky enough to have a POP bus filling up with a short line and an AoA bus is no where in sight, take the POP bus. The walk from POP to LM is worth it instead of waiting around for an AoA bus. Maybe a 10 minute walk at most (as I said, depends on your speed) back to LM.
