We'll probably take a walk over to AoA and grab a bite there, too.
It looks like, on the map, that there is a smoking area right where you would walk from 50s to the main hall. Is this an issue? I wouldn't want to have to walk past smoke every time.

I walked past that DSA every morning in February of last year going from building 3 to Classic Hall. I have asthma and cigarette smoke really bothers it, but I never had any issues walking past there. It's set back a bit from the pathway and has bushes/trees around it. I don't think you will have an issue.

Is the scale the same at Pop or more compact? What are your recs for preferred close to transport but quiet too? We are still napping age...

Thanks so much!
The layout of POP is nearly identical to AoA, except for the LM section, which is a long haul from the food court and buses. Your preferred room at POP will definitely be much closer.

22 days here... I can not wait! My first time at POP was in June and loved it! When we do long trips we budget and stay at the values. POP is in such a good area! Close to Epcot, HS, TL, DTD. Love the lake, it's a nice area to walk/run around.

Once you make the ADR's sometimes it's easier to step away from the planning until you hit 60 days or so. But that's a personal choice.
