Thank you so much for your great review and the amazing pictures! I have seen lots of pictures of AoA, but you also had a lot of new ones of areas I hadn't seen before so that made it even more exciting for me

I foolishly didn't book AoA when I got our FD pin, but after months of regret, I decided to change it to AoA LM section. I'm still 'nervous' since it's a new resort. I keep going back and forth about the 'walk' to the LM section...should I or shouldn't be worried? LOL I already requested building 7 top floor, so hopefully we get it.

I wish there were lots more LM reviews...I could read them all day every day!!!

I'm not too concerned about the iffy food court reviews since we have lots of ADR's already and won't be eating at the resort a lot anyway. Besides, we love the POP food court so we will walk over there a few times to eat!

Thanks again for the awesome review!!!

I don't want to overemphasize the distance, It is nothing compared to the walks at Mod's or Deluxe's, but a bit more than the average value and it was only an issue for us since we had a 6 YO in a stroller as wheelchair due to illness. I wanst about to get a wheelchair for 12 days and she was big for the stroller so it wasnt easy for me to puch her.. she's not much smaller than me! Don't give the distance a second thought

see above for my thoughts on the walk... It is NOT a reason to not try it. We had circumsatnces that made it more difficult (daughters illness and not having the proper transportation for her, a wheelchair probably would have been better) We paid slightly less to saty at AoA lm than we were going to pay for POR, but wanted the kids to enjoy it and honeslty, I think I enjoyed it the most!! I was very impressed with most of the theming, to be honest LK section didnt do much for me, (but DH LOVED it) but the rest was AWESOME! I was skyping with DH before her arrived and he said it looked like I was underwater (bed backboard!)
The food court was SLOW but we loved the food we had and my daughter had the mongolian fish every night we ate @ the Food court. I will be posting pics of food as well now that I know how to dot it with a link it is much easier.

It is a MUST DO DISNEY resort! I also love that you can so easily hop to pop! what a bonus! So much to enjoy! It's awesome!

On your food pictures my question is where did you all get the Lobster?
The food at AOA looks really good I can't wait to eat there.

I am sorry they are not all labeled yet. I tried several time but my computer kept freezing up! grrr The lobster was from Narcoossee's at the Grand Floridian. It's a 2 TS rest. I love it there. During or after your meal, You can watch the MK fireworks from the deck because the music is pumped in and then wacth the Water Pagent Parade. It's awesome! Highly recommend! I'll go back now and try to label them again
