I have stayed in the little mermaid rooms of AoA and also stayed many times at pop. While I loved the little mermaid rooms and the AoA resort, if I could get free dining, I would stay at Pop. We love Pop also, and you could always walk over to AoA. We loved the little mermaid section but after a few long days in the parks, that walk at night seemed really LONG!

We were in Mighty Ducks for our last stay at Movies. Such a long walk (and we got "lost" our first day by making a wrong turn and heading down towards Love Bug) and we only figured out the 'short cut' to music with a day left in our trip. Live and learn though we aren't keen on staying at Movies again. It wasn't a bad hotel. It was nice, clean, and the staff was most than friendly, just the wait for the buses when they got full at Sports or Music was annoying some days.


As for Pop I kind of like the 50's cause I love the bowling pin pool though I guess that is a preferred and we didn't find ourselves looking out our window enough to spring for preferred or pool view though pool view is only an extra 40 bucks so maybe. A view of the lake would be nice though.

What is the "memory lane" I see on the map?

We loved AOA, but I would pick a free dining resort as well.

We stayed in a preferred room at Pop in the bowling pin area (building one facing away from the pool to avoid pool noise) ... we weren't concerned with view as much as proximity to the buses, etc. And it was really convenient and quiet. Or LM room was very quiet, but it was a much longer walk to the main hall & bus stops than building 1 at Pop.

Memory lane is a path with a bunch of signs from different years with a memorable event or two from that year written on the sign. It's a neat little walk.

Likely we won't spring for preferred or pool view and just get what we get. We 'faced' the pool at Mighty Ducks but it was rarely used so there wasn't too much noise. Honestly I don't care if we face a concrete wall as we don't plan on spending much time beyond sleeping in the room and its Disney!

I think we'll take a walk down memory lane while we're there. It sounds enjoyable.

I'm calling tonight after all the storm warnings end and hopefully the hold won't be too long to switch to Pop. There's other times to check out LM. Maybe when its less popular, it will be part of Free Dining.
