How far is little mermaid?

Just booked Art of Animation but am nervous about how far away from the food court Mermaid looks on the map. Does anyone know if it is a long walk?

Its not open yet so I don't think anyone has actually walked it - is there not a distance guage on the map so you work out how far it is?

Google it then look at a car-truck and it should give you an idea.

I would think it's not any farther from the LM section at AOA resort to their main building and bus stops ,than it is from the Pop's 90's building to their main building/bus stop. It looks like the layouts are alike.
We've stayed in the 90's building at Pop , and it's not as far as it looks.
In fact we liked the 90's alot ,because it was quieter. So, I fully expect our stay at the LM section this year will be just as good!

If you go to www.insidethemagic.net. THen search "art of animation resort, then choose the article "new details and images from disneys art of animation resort", then you will see a video. There is a map of the resort at the beginning of the video. If you pause the video as soon as you see the map then you will see the little mermaid section. I had to pause and rewind a few times to get it to pause in the correct place to view it. I believe the main pool area, food area, and check in are near the nemo buildings. It looks like the LM section is the farthest away from these. Im not sure where the bus stop or stops will be located.

All I can say - it may seem like it is a long trip but it is definitively worth it.

It really isn't long at all. Look on the other AoA threads for a big photo of the Nemo area looking toward the LM buildings. It's closer than we originally thought. There are only two Lion King buildings that you walk between and then you're right there at the main building.

Since "preferred" means close to main building and the amentities, then that area would not have preferred rooms.

It is a similar case at the mods where they "themed" the rooms with the pirates at CBR and Parterre Place with RR's. Take the rooms farthest out and give them a theme to keep people interested in being placed there.

Actually, is is quite long. I know a few folks (TA's) who have stayed in one of the family suites and all say LM rooms are going to be a hike - more so than POP 90's.

I thought it would be about the same as the 90's, but guess it turned out farther.

Might not be fun in the heat of the summer, but otherwise worth the walk!

p.s. No pref LM rooms so far.

I used a Google Maps Distance Calculator (found on Google!) to get a point-to-point distance from the end point of the last LM building to the front side of Animation Hall and got 0.361 miles. Obviously that doesn't take walking paths into consideration but it sounds OK to me.

I asked because walking in the parks is a challenge and even seriously injured me one year. I was a little nervous about adding a long hike to the room.
