We are currently booked at the Art Of Animation in the Little Mermaid Section. After reading the reviews about the distance, I am starting to think twice. My husband says if we can walk all day in the parks we can walk a little to our room. He also says we could use the extra 180 on food instead. I have always wanted to stay at the Port Orleans French Quarter and the price difference is about $180 more total. I also love how it is a small resort and the rooms have been upgraded to queen beds instead of doubles. My youngest daughter is a huge fan of Ariel and that is the main reason we booked AoA. I would love to get the opinions of anyone who has stayed at either or both please. I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
