Best Location AoA Lion King

Booking our stay tonight or tomorrow. If I request a specific area (if possible) what is the best location and why?

We were in room 701 (in building 10) and it had a fantastic courtyard view and a nice central location close (but not too close) to the elevators . We saw the log with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa right from our window.

I noticed that the other LK building (can't remember what number it is) could have a 'view' of the back of the elephant graveyard. I would try to avoid that building because it's a chance you could get those rooms. Hope that helps!!

We just got back from a 6 night stay in a Lion King suite. My room requests were a lane view and near the elevator. We got 6802 (building 6) we were around the corner from the elevator, so we were close but not a lot of noise. And we had a great view of the lake and Pop Century. We were on the 4th floor. We lived our room and the location.

We just got back from AoA LK room. I put in no room requests, and got a first floor room, 6508. It was great because we could walk in the entrance closest to the food court/buses and it was just a half hallway walk down to our room.

One caution, the walls are thin, so I'd try to avoid anything that could be considered a thoroughfare. It didn't bother us at night as we were heavy sleepers, I guess, but at midday break there were some pretty noisy people in the hallways.

I stayed there in July for six nights. My room requests were highest floor, lake view. We received room 6738, so third floor in building 6 and we did have a great lake view!

It was the second to last room in the hallway, on the side closest to the Little Mermaid section. It was much faster for us to go up and down the exterior stairway than trek to the elevator, but we also had a car so the parking lot was pretty close as well. Great location, very quiet!
