I stayed at AoA in November 2012 right after Thanksgiving for 5 days - no sharing with Pop during our stay. Hopefully, someone who has stayed at AoA more recently can update.

We were in building 6 and loved it! Not far from anything, quiet, and a beautiful view if the lake.

We just got back a little over a week ago and there was no sharing of buses with Pop. They were all direct to the parks except Animal Kingdom which stops at water parks and Downtown Disney.

5 days until our stay in a nemo suite!

does anyone know if we are allowed to bring pool floats? we have 1 year old twins and have this inflatable 2 person float for them? the pool is going to be miserable for us if we cant use it bc we also have a 3 year old to watch!

Can anyone tell me how long it takes to drive to each park from AoA?

Thanks!

We are traveling with our 5 year old and twins who will be 15 months old at date of travel. I hadn't thought of a 2 person float for the twins. Is it a kiddie float? I will be interested to hear how it works out with the float!

I would like to know this as well. We are taking our van so we will be driving ourselves a lot.

We didn't bring floats this trip as we've been told at every other Disney resort we've stayed that personal floats are not allowed. Didn't ask at AoA, but didn't see any, either.

WRT fun stuff to do, I tried to get my kids to go learn to sketch with the artist, but all they wanted to do was swim! They had to check out every pool . I'd definitely say to check out every section, but also take a walk along the lake at night. Who knew giant bowling pins would be so pretty??

And WRT food, I thought the chicken burger was really good. I thought the tandoori chicken thighs and acorn squash were excellent. If you like Sanaa, or have wanted to try it, this is very comparable to those flavors (esp if you try all the sauces). My DD raved over the turkey sandwich (had it twice) and DS over the pasta Alfredo (twice also!). I was pretty darn pleased with the food overall.

Have fun! You will love it!!

No pool noise! It was a great location! I would request a 4th floor too.

We were on floor 3, but heard nothing. Nothing above us, nothing outside. We could have just been lucky, but we were thrilled! We used the stairs on the end of the building most of the time rather than go to the middle to get to the elevator. It was faster, and really not too bad (until the last night...by then my legs were just done!).

Yes i can see that!!! Not too worried about the walk/elevators.. Until the end of the day!



Another CRAZY QUESTION: Do people decorate Windows/Doors?
we did for POR and POLY.. I haven't heard anything for AOA..

Sorry for all this. The Dis is the only information board i can find. With the exception of You tube..

I do appreciate everything//
