I had the tandoori chicken, the lentils as a side dish were SO good. DS had pizza, it was your typical Disney pizza. DD had an Italian panini. She enjoyed it. It came with coleslaw which she didn't like and she usually likes coleslaw.

Thank you both. We'll be staying at Pop and I thought we could walk over to AoA to have a few meals.

Just came back and we had a King room in the LM Section. The bed was really good. The rooms aren't huge but you had plenty of room with the one bed.
We thoroughly enjoyed it

We're doing the exact opposite - staying at AoA and walking over to Pop to use their foodcourt (we've stayed there a few times and love their foodcourt!)

I've stayed at Pop many times, so figure that AoA is going to be fairly similar. There are some things that are going to be the same....buses, times, etc. Yes, the buses can get crowded. But, if you try to avoid the most common times (the hour prior to park opening, and as soon as a park closes) you will find that the buses are fine. If you want to leave AoA at 8:20 for a 9am park opening? You will have lots of company on the bus.
The ride to AK and MK will be longer than the rides to Epcot and DHS...they are much further away.

As far as the food situation goes...again, if you try to avoid the busy times of day....that 60-90 mins prior to park opening, and around 6pm-ish, you should be fine. I always walked over to the food court around 7ish, and put everything on a tray and brought it back to the room. Much easier and faster than heading there around 7:45ish.

I'm spending a night there in a month. I expect it to be fairly similar to Pop. And I love staying there...so LM rooms at AoA should make me very happy!!!

You have to understand that 'long' or 'terrible' are both relative terms. One person may think that having a wait of 10 mins for the bus to come is horrible, while someone else may think that's pretty okay!!! Same with the food court...one guest may think that having 40 other guests in the food court is busy, others may think it's pretty close to empty. It's all about expectations.
