Btwn the 2 lk buildings how far is the walk to the buses and hall? TIA!!!

Buses were running about every 20 minutes when we were there in January. The earliest buses we caught were at 7, but someone said they started at 6:30 (not sure).

The walk from the LK section is not bad at all. We had DS8, DD5, DD4 (no stroller) and it took maybe 5 minutes to the center of the building where the elevator is. We were on the end closer to the hall, and it was even shorter. We did think one day that it might be shorter to walk around the side of the hall to get to the buses...nope. It took longer! Cut through the hall!

The phone lines have been crazy today at Disney. At least I can't get through anyway. But I will keep trying. So a heads up... I will be cancelling my Little Mermaid room for Nov 7-11 if anyone is looking for that time frame. Gonna get a room discount somewhere else.

Ya gotta remember you are walking all day everywhere so I don't consider it a big haul to go to the food court from the LM room. I do wish they would put a soda fountain at the LM pool though.

Just my opinion but yes I did find going from our LM room to the food court to be a pita! I guess if you spend a lot of time at the resort, like a pool day, it would be ok. But going to the parks, walking all those miles, walking back to a LM room from the bus...only to have to walk all the way back for a mug of soda...yup, to me, this a total pita. I'm sure there are many people with the total opposite opinion tho. I guess you can make the decision on the mugs when you get there and see if it seems like a pita to you.

Now that pita was pointed out as funny I can't read it without laughing! Doh. P.I.T.A. I will just say a pain. We are going for a short stay, Sunday evening arrival, dinner at food court for the kids and my mom while Dh and I run off to an anniversary dinner. aaw. Anyhow, Monday Veterans Day pool and resort day..want to try all fo the pools, do the drawing class, eat lots of food . Ten the next two days are park days and most likely will not eat there unless they want to get some coffee and keep the mug int he bottom of the stroller in the park. Just trying to see if it is worth it to buy them while doing our food budget.

Wish they had a drink refill station at either end of the resorts or at the other pools!!!!

I was really shocked to read that the whole AOA resort was excluded from the fall free dining promo. Usually it's just the LM rooms. We aren't booked until November of 2014 for our Cars suite stay, and we are pretty set on cars with or without free dining. But the money saver that I am really hopes for a discount next fall!!! Until then I'll just plan at rack rate! Anyone else out there that refuses to budge on staying at AOA without a discount? Or am I the only crazy that is just dying to stay at AOA???

We are booked our LM rooms next summer and although we would love a discount, we just honestly want to stay at AoA. We have tossed around other resorts because of discounts, but just keep coming back to AoA. So, I am pretty much right there with you!

Nt crazy, I decided not to switch to carribean beach in order to remain at AoA. Of course if we had a longer stay or more people I would have changed for financial reasons, but I am excited to go to AoA!!!
