This might be a silly question but does the Finding Nemo section have elevators or just stairs?

I tried twice mid day around 2-3p (which is when I finally was able to get one) and once late at night around 10pm. Everytime I went too it seemed like people (myself included) were standing guard over their machines!

But is there another one I should be looking at? It's the one with the view of POP, correct?
yes, building 7 faces POP and the lake. It's nice if:

- you didn't drive - it's the furthest from the parking lots

- you don't mind staying in "Ursula's Building"

We requested Building 7 - we got there opening day for LM. Got assigned to Building 8 - which worked out well for us. DD did NOT want to stay in Ursula's Building (8 is Ariel, 9 is King Triton).

Checked in today. Resort is amazing! But. . . The LM rooms seem much farther than I was picturing. Might have been the luggage or being spoiled by preferred rooms though.

We were just there a couple weeks ago, and yes, the LM rooms are a haul from the lobby. We liked the resort, however, I wish they had taken as much time on the rest of the resort as they did the Cars section. Radiator Springs was amazing, but LM and Lion King left something to be desired.

LM rooms are small. I can't imagine spending a week there with 3-4 folks in the room. They really need to put a pool bar or something down there... if you have a refillable mug, it is too far to walk just to get a drink.

I am glad we stayed there, but I don't know we will do it again, and the suites are out of our price range.

Hey all. Thanks for the great reviews, pics, and tips. We will be arriving at AoA tomorrow in the LK section. Quick question regarding transportation. We have a 9:15 breakfast res at Cape May Cafe in a couple days. From reading here, we will need to take an early bus to Downtown Disney and then grab a bus there to the Beach Club Resort. Is that right? Any idea how much time to allow? Thank you!!

Have you thought about getting a cab? I know it's an extra expense, but it would save SO much time! We stayed at AoA last week and we had our own car and the parks all seemed so close - HS is just around the corner and the Epcot resorts are too. I would be surprised if it's more than a couple miles.

Or since HS is so close....could you take a bus there and then a catch Beach Club bus from there? DTD just seems so far out of the way.

Just a thought...

I do have a bit of an off question for anyone that is there now, what do the doors look like when it comes to the keys? And is it the traditional key or RFID?

I would say check with the bus drivers and see what they have to say. They seem to know the routes really well!

Could you take the bus to HS and then take the boat over?

The keys are RFID. So easy!

My best suggestion is bus to HS, then boat (or walk--it's really not that far) to the Beach Club. (Or take a cab)
