Can some one please tell me that they don't have smoking right outside the door of the food court?
Like it is over at Pop

We stayed here during our first visit to wdw from September 22-29. We were beyond impressed with everything. It was our first so I don't really have nother Disney resort to compare it to. I have Sprint and a 4s and had great service while at our hotel but not in the parks?

We have already decided we will do everything in our power to return to wdw for fall break in 2013 and are trying to decided if we should stay here again since we were so impressed or give another value resort a shot?

We stayed in the Little Mermaid section and I was extra happy since that is my favorite Disney movie!

They also have smoking areas all along the running/walking path around the lake. Makes it lots of fun to run in the morning.

sadly it's true. If you're a non-smoker I strongly recommend you do not eat in the Little Mermaid section right by that door - you can smell the smoke when the wind is blowing. Also don't sit on that end of the Nemo pool (you can smell it there too).

I spoke to the resort manager (he happened to be on the desk one day) and complained (politely) about the location of that smoking area. He seemed to note it but I doubt somehow it will be moved unless a whole lot of people complain. I didn't know POP had one similarly located. That was our only complaint during our stay.

Oh boy well we are non smokers and I really hope that we don't have to smell smoke while trying to dine. For 2 of us smoke is such an irritant that it causes asthma attacks and I would hate to spend part of our well deserved and much needed family vacation dealing with asthma complications that could potentially be serious.
I wonder why Disney would put a smoking section so close to a dining area?
If it becomes and issue for us during our stay we will surely and respectfully speak to management about it.

Distance around Pop/AOA lake?

Does anyone know the distance around the lake? I'm a jogger and last trip when we stayed a Pop I had to run around the complex. It will be nice to be able to run around the lake this time.

Yes it did! The worst for me last week, though, was during the ToT 10-miler and on the last mile through DHS, I ran by some people smoking....I mean really?

Hi,
So many pages so I apologize as I'm sure this has been asked but does AoA have its own bus service or does it share with Pop?

Looking at booking a LM room. Seems Bldg 9 might be closest walk to the buses, you could cut through the parking lot?

Thanks!

Allyson

AoA has their own buses.
We were in 9 and just walked through the Lion King section. It took us 7 minutes (my FIL timed everything! From walking to standing in lines - talk about annoying but for this is helpful)
