It was a MK wheelchair, by the way, so the availability at the resort probably fluctuates more than I would have otherwise thought.
The resorts have free wheel chairs, but they are very limited so it's not something to count on for sure.

I just wanted to say....I'm staying at Pop right now but we just ate at AofA for dinner. We had the butter chicken, make your own pasta, pizza and Caesar salad and a boxed kids meal. Everything was DELICIOUS!!!!! and service was efficient (I'm a sucker for efficiency ).

Good to know! Although I did tell her that she has officially used up her one lifetime allotment of wheelchair passengerdom.

checking in online now -- what's the difference between landscape and lake view? I just want to avoid pool view due to noise.

Landscape view = looking at some sort of greenery. Bushes, trees, etc.

Lake view = over looking hourglass lake.

yes, I got that, but does "landscape" include the inner part of the resort like where the cars pool and walkways are? Or does it also include parking lots? Or is it truly a view of greenery and such? Because I'm looking at the map, and it would seem, by my definition, that the only Cars bldg w/ landscape would be the one side of bldg 2. Everything else would be more parking lots or other bldgs. Does that make sense what I'm asking?

No. That would be considered pool view.

Yes, because there is usually greenery between the rooms and the parking lot.

Not just of greenery and such. Could have some buildings, etc also in the view.

Facing other buildings and/or parking lots would fall under landscape view.

I didn't see the inside of a cars suite... Buuuuut The nemo suites are centrally located which is a pro. The pool is the "main" pool and has a splash pad, activities. I will say that we were impressed with the theming outside of the cars area. The pool is smaller, but consequently probably less crowded overall. I would say depends on who's going -- if it's comfort/ease you're focused on, location of nemo may appeal more to you. If you have youngsters into cars, I think they'd be pretty amused by the section.

I don't think noise will be too much of an issue with either but perhaps others can give opinions on that.
