Just back from a 7 night stay at AoA Little Mermaid section. Don't you just hate when vacations are over?! Here are some quick thoughts; let me know if you have any questions! Distance: A lot of people ask how far Little Mermaid is from the food court/bus stops. We were in Building 8, pretty much the farthest away you can get. On the first day, it didn't seem very far at all, maybe a 5-7 minute walk. But by the third day, it was seeming pretty far, like "are we EVER going to get back to the room?" By the fifth day, we were driving the car to the bus stop every morning! Overall it's not too bad, but it's definitely the longest resort walk at Disney I've had, and I've stayed almost everywhere. Room The theming was cute, and kids would definitely get a kick out of it. We were a party of adults (with 2 rooms) and I didn't mind it, but it was in no way subtle or romantic. Mousekeeping was great and brought us tons of toiletries and extra towels every day. There was a burned out lightbulb over the mirror which never got replaced during our entire 7 days there, which was kind of un-Disney like. The A/C was terrible. You couldn't turn it lower than 68 AND it shut off when no one was there (or moving) so the room got super stuffy. I can't imagine dealing with it in summer months. Food court It was okay. I think Pop is better in this regard. I had a surf and turf burger once which was pretty decent. The fries were bad. The pizza (both individual and full-size delivery) wasn't good. The Caesar salad that came with it was overly dressed and almost inedible. We went to the Pop food court one night just because nothing at AoA was appealing at the time. I did like the omelets for breakfast! Very tasty. Pool The Big Blue main pool was SUPER CROWDED on the few warm days we had, not many available chairs at all. The Little Mermaid pool was much quieter with not many people. We visited the Cars section and that pool was tiny but the cabanas were a nice touch and the theming was the best of any section. The weather was pretty cold for most of the trip so the pools were empty most evenings, but I tested the water one night and it was heated nicely. The gates to the pools were open for the entire trip, so we didn't have to use our room keys. Transportation No issues, no long waits ever, either at the parks or at the resort. Overall, I thought that AoA was beautifully themed and I'm glad I stayed there. I would probably choose Pop next time over AoA, but I'd still recommend it!
