Thank you. It sounds like taking the boat is our best option. I appreciate your input!

We are staying at AoA for the first time in May and I cannot wait! My DH, brother (21) and our 9.5 month old and I will we staying in a Nemo suite. This is our first time traveling with DS and we're trying hard not to over pack... what toiletries and things are included in the room? When I've stayed in a hotel in the past with a kitchenette they have included dish soap and things like that... is there anything like that already in the room? I just don't want to pack stuff that they are going to provide. I had some other questions but now I can't remember... mommy brain

here's another (dumb?) question... are you allowed to have floatation devices in the pool? I want to get a safety float with shade for my infant but I honestly can't remember if Disney is one of those places where you can't take them in the pools. Thanks!

Ithink the flotation devices varies. there are all kinds of them at the quiet pools at the moderate resorts. but it seems like, at the values, they only allow the noodles?


all the numerous tmes I have stayed at all the dif. levels of resorts, I can't believe I don't know the answer to this.!

I know I would love to bring a blow up air mattress, and I KNOW that isn't allowed.

I think they don't allow the little blow up tubes for the kids cause then the kids wold have a false sense of security? but then, there are no life guards at the quiet pools at the moderates, so anything goes?

anyone know?

We are in trouble. My grand daughter eats chicken nuggets fried only some times French fries. She will eat a white hamburger bun. Is the bridge still available to POP. Can we use mugs there? She has her heart set on the mermaid room.

Only if they are purchased at Pop.

you can use either food court, whether you stay at pop or AOA. now, really if you buy a mug at AOA, you really think you can't use it at pop? or vice versa? (I know you can't use each other's pools).

we were staying at pop last august and went over to AOA and filled our mugs.


we will be at AOA in a few weeks and will go over to POP for the om's night out meals. and we will bring our mugs sheesh. it's fine. (they will be newly purchased mugs! we just choose to enjoy the other food court. we are disney resort guests.)

Officially, you can't use a mug at Pop that was purchased at AoA. Is there anything in place to stop you, no.

We are staying at the AOA in August in a little mermaid room. I was looking at the map and noticing that it seems pretty far away from the main hall. Is this where the only bus stop is to or is there a bus stop by the little mermaid rooms?

The only bus stop is the one by the Animation Hall.

It is a 5-10 minute walk depending on your mobility and if you have slow little ones. I would suggest building 7 which is the closest of the LM buildings to Animation Hall. I have heard a rumour that they now have Pop and Coffee stations set up between LM and AH.
