It depends on where you're standing but it is possible to see at least *some* of Little Mermaid from the Cars section. We were in Lion King and I could definitely see some of the Cars area from outside of our LK building. If you look at the map on the first post of this thread, you'll see that the LM section sort of "curves" away from the rest of the resort so it's not all in a straight line. That's the reason you can't necessarily see from one end to the other (as well as building and landscaping that interfere with the view). It's a half a mile from the outside edge of the Cars section to the outside edge of the Little Mermaid section. It's a beautiful resort to walk around at night.

Quick transportation question:

How early do they start running buses to the MK? We are going in the end of Sept and have an 8:20 CP ADR (no EMH's that day). Is there any chance of making it to the gates by 8:00?

Thank you!

Would also like to know about this! We stayed at AOA last year but used our truck. Was thinking about trying the transportation this year but don't want to be late for any ADRs!

Buses start running at 6:30am. I would be out at the bus stop at least an hour before your ADR. We've never had a problem making an early ADR at a theme park using buses. In fact, AOA was the best all around transportation we've ever had at WDW.

Oh, good! That should work out well, then. Now, the fun becomes getting everyone out the door by that time...

Hi!

Quick question. I recently booked three nights at AoA. The first 2 nights we'll spend in a LM but I booked at Lion King Suite for our last night.

LM rooms have "motel type" doors (you open the door and you're outside).

Is it the same for Lion King Suites? Or do you get a hallway?

Thanks in advance.

The suites all have interior hallways.

I just booked my family of 5 in our first trip to AOA in Cars suite. We are staying 1/24-1/31/15. In the past we have stayed at the wilderness lodge but this trip our baby is going to be 5 so we exceeded the limit. I was wondering if there is a certain building or location to request that would be the most convent to the bus stops and food court?

Your best bet would be to request "close to bus" or "close to food court".

Thanks so much for answering. I am kinda nervous as well as excited because this is a new resort for us. I just hope my family likes it, the kids don't know when we are going back and where we are staying.

The suites are all fairly close to both. I stayed in the farthest Cars building and it was still only a 5 minute walk.

Quick questions... Are you allowed to make request for a value (building, close to food court, etc.). ?

If you can, what are the possibilities during online check in?

If by value you mean Little Mermaid rooms, they are the farthest rooms away. You could request a room near by the Flippin' Fins pool but none of the rooms are close to buses, food or the Big Blue pool.
