    We are scheduled to stay in a little mermaid room at AOA with 2 under 2. I am concerned about how far the bus stops are from the room, loved carribean beach cause the stops were so close and we were close to the pool tool. What d we do? Stick or move?

    Hi Daniel,

    I have stayed at the brand new Art of Animation resort and I can tell you that this place is a child's dream come true. My children would have been in absolute heaven if they had access to that pool when they were preschoolers.

    I recently measured on Google Earth and found that the center of the Little Mermaid section is almost exactly 1/4 mile from the center for the main building which houses the bus stop, food court and pool gate. For a healthy adult strolling at a slow pace, this is about a five minute walk. You'll be even closer to the Lion King pool than you will to the Nemo pool, and you're welcome to use both.

    Personally, I'd stay at AoA (the food court is amazing), but if the walk is a big factor for you, then you may want to switch.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else you can do to help.
