But would still like to see some of AoA and maybe even enjoy a Caprese Sandwich from there.
Yes, just straight over the bridge Oh and we plan on doing the same!

In addition to the bridge over the middle of the lake, there is a walking/jogging path all around the lake. You should definitely walk over to AoA and look at the various sections. They've done a great job with the theming and you can get some wonderful photos. It's a very pleasant walk.

If I requested the 60s or 70s what is the furthest I could potentially be from food court and buses? Not too bad?

Not bad at all. In December I had the farthest room in building 5, top floor and it still took me maybe 3 minutes from my door to the bus stops.

We have 8am (8:10?) ADR at CRT. Staying at POP in Preferred. What time would you suggest we leave the room?? How early to busses run?

Also, considering eating TS before MK EMH but I wanted to have some time to relax at resort beforehand but also don't want to miss the 8pm Parade. I'm concerned with travel time. Any suggestions for somewhere nice for DD3, DH, me and my mom & brother...that wouldn't be too much travel time from POP?! (Not too fancy and not character...or very exotic food lol)

I believe busses start at 6:30/6:45. I'd give 45 minutes at the latest.

One question, do they play music within each of the different areas? i.e. 50's area has music from that era, etc etc?


FD
yes and no. because of the afternoon pool party, the party leaders (DJs, we call them yellow jackets cause they were the yellow shirts and we find them annoying) will BLAST "pop"music out over the nice 60's background music, and I do mean Blast. so instead you will hear katy perry, beyonce etc.

I think that will happen at AOA eventually too.. from the LM building by the parking lot, there is no walkway to the center towards the lion king section.. you have to walk along the lot and then there is a path. saw a lot of people cutting over. also, they make you walk around a circle of grass that is there for no reason.
