    Myself, DD13, and DD3 (will be 4 in May) are staying at AoA April 1-7. I know I am probably crazy for going over spring break, but I can only go when school is out, and really don't want to go back in the summer heat. I have booked AoA because I think the theming will be great for DD3. I am second guessing myself, though. The last time older DD and I went, we stayed at CSR and absolutely loved it. A big reason I loved it was the bus service. I requested a room near the first bus stop to be picked up and we had a great experience and very minimal waits. I am wondering if I should go back to CSR. I know both AoA and CSR will involve lots of walking, but if we are close to the bus stop, the rest won't be that big a deal.

    I just can't decide!!!

    Where in AoA ?
    If its Mermaid room..... I believe its a long walk. With a family suite you should be able to get much closer, especially the Nemo Suites.
    Parts of CSR also have long walks to the bus stop.
    Since you are just 3 people the room size does not matter that much. Does CSR have kids appeal ?

    The standard Little Mermaid rooms at AoA are a 5-7 minute walk from the bus stops depending on how fast you walk and which building you get. Maybe 10 minutes if you get the far side of the most distant building or if you've got wheelchairs or strollers with you.

    I don't think there are multiple bus stops at AOA. There is just one. Someone correct me if I am wrong but we took buses from there in June when we stayed at POP but ate at AOA.
    The bus stops are covered though, which is nice for a value resort.
