    Can't decide b/w AoA & POP. Like the play areas of AoA but my son isn't thrilled with Little Mermaid theme room. Also liked idea of preferred room to save walking at POP. Will walk to Little Merm room be that far from bus? Any thoughts for me b/w the

    H there, Kari!

    If distance is a prime concern, then you will likely want to opt for Disney's Pop Century Resort. At Disney's new Art of Animation, the Little Mermaid section is one of the farthest away from the bus stops; there is definitely a walk involved.

    Both Art of Animation and Pop will have dedicated bus transportation. Demand for buses at Art of Animation will be lighter than at Pop when both are full. as AoA has about 20% less capacity than Pop (because in its family suite buildings, it sleeps 6 in space that would accommodate 8 at Pop).

    There is a Resort Map on the official AoA page. A link to it is located on the right side of the page.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
