Question shuttle to park question

We will be staying at AOA here in a couple weeks and while we are there with our kids my grandmother who lives in FL is going to be visiting us for a day. My question is what when she comes to visit if she meets us at the resort will they let her go on the bus to the park with us?

Are the little mermaids really far from the main building??? Is there one LM building that is closer than the rest!???


My mom has knee problems and does really well in the parks but at the end of the day I'm not sure a long walk is really that awesome????


Thanks,

Thanks,
I've heard Building 9 was best. But would welcome other opinions as well.

Thanks,
Building 9 is the closest, followed by 7, and 8 is the furthest away.

It is all flat land, no hills, so with knee problems it will could 8-10 minutes from the lobby. Depending on how fast she walks with her knee problem, it could add or subtract some time.

They both have essentially the same views: in both building 4 and 5 you can have pool, courtyard, lake, or LK (from bldg 5) or Cars (from bldg 4) views.

Wherever you are placed in FN it wont be too far a walk to the lobby as FN is located directly behind it.

A few quick questions:

1. Does the resort provide coffee for the in-room coffee maker? If not, what type of coffee make is it (so I can purchase the proper coffee)?

2. Can I fit a gallon of milk in the fridge?

3. I remember reading months ago when I booked the resort that their was a plan for drink refill stations in each section of the hotel. Did this ever happen? We are booked in a Cars suite. Where is the nearest refill station?

4. Can I request a pack and play and/or bed rails or are they located in the room already?

5. As mentioned we are booked in the Cars suites. Any suggestions for a building as close to Animation Hall, parking lot, pool, etc?

6. Is there a playground located at the resort?

7. Any opinions on the buses as of late? Good, bad, the same as usual, etc?

Thanks. Sorry for all the questions. We leave in a few weeks and I am a bit behind in my planning and research. And my husband is not thrilled with this resort option!

Yes, the provide coffee. If you need extra ask mouse keeping. They wre generous with it during our stay!

2. Can I fit a gallon of milk in the fridge?

You might be able to in the main section. We fit quit a bit in our fridge with some clever rearranging. We've even removed a shelf for more space!

3. I remember reading months ago when I booked the resort that their was a plan for drink refill stations in each section of the hotel. Did this ever happen? We are booked in a Cars suite. Where is the nearest refill station?

The only drink refill stations are at Landscape of Flavors in the lobby building and st the Big Blue Pool.

4. Can I request a pack and play and/or bed rails or are they located in the room already?

You can request both. I would call and request both prior to your stay, especially bed rails. I also recommend bringing a pack n play sheet from home.

5. As mentioned we are booked in the Cars suites. Any suggestions for a building as close to Animation Hall, parking lot, pool, etc?

We were in building one and thought the location was great! The lightening mcQueen building is furthest from Animation Hall.

6. Is there a playground located at the resort?

There is a little play area in Lion King and Finding Nemo. Plenty of space for kids to run and play!

7. Any opinions on the buses as of late? Good, bad, the same as usual, etc?

The buses ran smoothly for us in December. It seemed business as usual as far as the buses went.

Have a great trip!

Aoa

Staying in a LM room made reservations through Disney are we able to request which building? After reading looks like #9 is closest how do we request prior to arrival? Thanks

On the ends of the buildings and in the middle by the elevators.
