Once on the bus, travel time to the parks is something like this:

HS 5-10 minutes
EP 10-15 minutes
AK 15-20 minutes
MK 20-25 minutes

We also stayed in bldg 1 and said we would request that bldg next time. Very convenient just as you mentioned!

We are here now at the AOA Cars Suite Building 2 4th floor. So far everything has been great. Rooms are nice and clean. Beds are comfy. Rooms are very cold. My only compliant would be the noise in the halls. Really I think it's just people letting their young children run and scream down the hall at any hour of the day. And i mean some of them are screaming down the hall. I heard a child at 630am and have been hearing kids till at least 1130pm. Also the door is kind of loud when it closes so that can be heard too. If noise is an issue I would bring a sound machine or ear plugs.

AoA Little Mermaid Room

Anyone just recently visited AoA Little Mermaid room. We just wanted to know if they replaced all their fridges with new working one?
Thanks.

I heard (perhaps somewhere on here?) that they have finished replacing them. I want to say the job was completed around the first week of the month but I haven't seen anything "official".

decorating windows

Has anyone seen any decorated windows at AOA this fall? We are going in three weeks and were thinking about decorating them.

I was there Labor Day week and didn't see any. Saw a few at Pop, but nothing at AoA. And we did walk around the resort to the other areas, too.
