I did the LM section in Oct. I'm not a fan of the themeing so it wouldn't be my first choice of resorts, but really all this fuss over the distance. If the walk is the problem, then never stay at a deluxe onsite because they are huge, for that matter so are a couple of the mods. Pop is just as large as well from the outer buildings to the main. Big todo over nothing if you ask me, but I"m sure there's plenty of people who will be just as glad if a lot of them decide on different resorts. However it's not flame worthy heck it's not even worth the sheer number of threads that have been devoted to it. I like POFQ, and yes the small walk to everything is one of the reasons I do it. However it's not the deciding factor but for many it might be, so if that's your line in the sand then stay elsewhere. But Disney is not going to worry about it, it's small potatoes in their eyes.
