We were in a LM room in Sept. (the day it opened) and had a room facing the pool. We didn't hear outside noise. The walk to the food court was pretty long and I never once went over there for a refill!

We are thinking about a stay at the AoA in the Little Mermaid Rooms before our cruise. Was wondering, are there laundry facilities near the LM rooms? Also, what time does the store and food court open in the morning?

Yes, there's a laundry area by the LM pool.
The food court and gift shop open at 6am

We are going in February with friends. We are a family of 5 (Nemo suite), and they have 2 people (LM room). We also have ressies at Pop. I just can't make up my mind! What are your thoughts...are we going to feel disconnected from the group if we are in Nemo & they are in LM? I guess we would have to feel a little disconnected...SO does the "newness" of AofA make it worth it to stay there rather than Pop where we would have 3 rooms near each other? I have heard bad reviews about the wait at AofA's food court & their thermostats not going below 68, so I am just really second guessing my AofA reservation. We have not stayed at Pop before either.

The big thing holding it back is controlling use. There really isn't a way to make sure is being used properly right now.
That makes sense - the big blue pool is fenced and the drink station is in the pool bar area. I can see how a drink station in an unsupervised area could be abused. You certainly couldn't ask the lifeguards to police the soda fountain.

I have a similair question regarding bus transportation. I just returned from a stay at POR. I'm thinking of doing a split stay at AofA next October. I went over to the resort to check it out and when I went back to the bus station to return to Epcot, every bus station had a very long line. I waited about 15 minutes for the Epcot bus and ending up standing. Just wondering if you found long lines at the bus stations common?

Pop thermostats also don't go below 68 degrees also.
I wouldn't worry about the waits at the food court - any food court can have huge waits during their busy times (usual meal times). Waits are common at POR food court with their design your own pasta bar - Pop can be extremely crowded, we have been at POFQ when you couldn't move due to the crowd and lines to pay were 14 or more deep.
We really enjoy the food at AoA food court so much so that we usually stop there to eat at least once during each of our visits to WDW (we go around 4 or more times a year).

We just stayed a night at AOA, Nemo, and ate at Landscape of Flavors.

The food was good but the set up was chaotic- too small of an area to accommodate the amount of people.

I had the tandoori chicken, the lentils as a side dish were SO good. DS had pizza, it was your typical Disney pizza. DD had an Italian panini. She enjoyed it. It came with coleslaw which she didn't like and she usually likes coleslaw.

Leaving the resort, we never dealt with long lines at all. We didn't do anywhere close to rope drop though. We were usually leaving the resort around 10.

Ha! Based on my experience, you may want some separation LOL. Being that you're in a Nemo suite, it really shouldn't be THAT bad. They'll be close to you for the food court and busses.

We tried most things, and it was pretty good. I liked the pasta station a lot. DD had pizza or mac & cheese most of the time. DH really liked the Tandoori chicken and the pulled pork sandwich.
