Question does this resort share buses with pop

Does this resort share buses with the pop century at any time of the year, like maybe in the slow season.

Was looking to book LM for fall/free dining promo,but they said LM rooms were excluded from Free dining. Do you know if something changed? Hoping to be able to stay there this November as well!

No. It was quite slow and even at 1 am when we were the only ones on the bus, pop still had a separate bus when there was only 1 person at their stop. Bus drivers, transportation and Front Desk all have said they will not share unless it was an emergency or an unforeseen circumstance. That being said, you are welcome to use either bus and walk 20 mins if you'd like. (apparently that is how long it takes from front desk to front desk - we never did the walk)

We had a pin that allowed LM rooms. I think that is the only way peope were able to score LM rooms with free dining.

There was a Free Dining Pin that came out awhile before the Free Dining Public Offer. With the Pin the Little Mermaid were included, with the General Public offer they weren't. That is what they probably booked with.

Have you checked availability for your dates? We tried to book in early July and November was already sold out for our dates. The CM urged me to keep checking, and sure enough, a week later our dates opened up

We just booked our free dining ressie last weekend and they had rooms available at AOA at first they said it was only the Cars family suites available but then after putting us on hold they said that we could just book a family suite and in the notes on the ressie we could put which buildings we would like and then upon check in we will see what we get. We were ok with that option because its gives you an equal chance to get any of the 3 buildings that have the family suites in them plus it will be kind of a surprise upon check in to see where we end up
Plus we didnt have to select just Cars and be set on just that building.
Anyhow they must have had others cancel their ressies between July and now so I guess we got lucky last weekend

There is no way it took 20 minutes to walk from one front desk to the other, maybe 10 at most and that was just strolling.

It is pretty expensive (about 1350.00 more) for a Suite but my girls are bigger and need the queen size ged. Still cheeper than the other resorts that have queen size beds! I guess that is why we can only afford a trip to Disney every three or four years! It is a great vacation!

Just recently returned from an (unfortunately shortened) stay at AoA. I did manage to get some food pictures to share. I have lots of pics from around the resort too, which I'll post soon!

We really enjoyed the food at AoA. The portions were huge though, so alot of times we ordered kids sizes. Let me know if you have any questions


Kids chocolate chip pancakes

Make your own egg white omelette (turkey bacon, spinach & onion)- a note about the potatoes, they were very good but tasted oniony

Kids character waffles with fruit topping on the side

Kids breakfast platter (comes with either grapes or apple slices, and apple juice, fruit punch, milk, or water)

Mickey waffle

Make your own fruit cup

Adult breakfast platter with chicken sausage and turkey bacon

Another make your own omelette with sausage and spinach

Challah french toast with fruit topping on the side

Create your own yogurt parfait

Create your own salad

Create your own pasta (whole grain pasta, alfredo, chicken, spinach, peas, broccoli, garlic)

Pepperoni pizza with side caesar salad

Caprese sandwich

Mongolian beef stir fry (multigrain rice, naan bread, pickled veggies)- YUM!

Side of homemade chips
