I posted this in a seperate thread with no responses so i figured I'd add it here.....please forgive me if its already addressed in this thread, as there is too much to read.

We are booked at AOA LM.....although I would LOVE to be closer to the food court and main pool, I refuse to pay the suite price.

My question is, how far of a walk is it from LM rooms to the food court? We enjoy our refillable mugs

Is it as far....or further than: the 90's room at POP or Mighty Ducks room at ASMO? We've stayed at both those resorts and those were the furthest from the main buildings. OR Trinidad South at CBR?? I was just wondering if it's comparable to those distances or worse.

Thanks to all that can help.

Depends on where you will be that day. General rule of thumb is to allow an hour and a half travel time. With a taxi, you could bring that down to maybe 30 minutes? Remember that the taxi will drop you off at the main area at the campgrounds, then you still have to take an internal bus back to HDDR. If you're at MK that day, you can just take a boat over to the campground. The boat dock is close to HDDR.

Building 7 closer to lion king is the closest. I think the video I watched somewhere online showed it taking about 8 min to the buses.

The walking distance to the main hall is roughly comparable to the 90's building at Pop. I estimate it's about .23 miles for both, with more or less depending on your room location.

There are now confirmed reports that there is a mobile breakfast station in the LM section, and that mugs can be filled with coffee at that station. Whether it will be provided during your stay there's no way to know, but it is a relatively recent change they are doing.

There was no soda refills at the LM coffee stand- also they are only open from 7-10 or 11.

5 minute walk...really I was nervous that it was gonna be some long trek from our rooms to the lobby/bus but we were just at LM for 2 weeks- made the walk several times and it was no big deal.

We've done it both ways and the cab is sooooo worth it for HDDR.

I'm just finishing up a week in an LM room and I loved it! I was in building 8 and I would say it took about five minutes to get there from the main building. I'm a single woman, though.

I also spent a night at Pop and I have to say the food choices there are awful compared to AoA (and I've stayed at Pop twice before). Try the pumpkin pecan tart, it's like pumpkin pie with a pecan pie crust. So amazing!

I love the green tea from that type of tea machine! Yay!
