    Hi Kristen, thanks for your reply. I have one more question, which building at AoA is closest to the buses and restaurant?

    Hi again Maria!  It sounds like you're leaning towards booking Disney's Art of Animation Resort - yay!!  The family suites are located in three different themed areas: Cars, Finding Nemo and Lion King.  We stayed in Cars, Building 3 and found it to be not bad with relation to the buses and Landscape of Flavors Food Court.  Technically I think the Lion King suites would be the shortest walking distance to the buses and Food Court, but they do not have their own quiet pool. The Finding Nemo section is located directly behind Animation Hall and is the closest to the Big Blue Pool.  The Cars section also has The Cozy Cone Pool, which is really just too cute for words!  Why don't you ask your family which of the 3 movies is their favourite and base your decision on which themed section to choose on their answer.  Once you choose your section, you can then make a request for "close to lobby" or "close to Food Court", etc. and they will do their best to accommodate your request.

    One of my favourite websites,, has some really great information on Disney's Art of Animation Resort, including a map which will give you a better idea of the layout of the resort.  I suggest visiting that website as it may help with your decision.  (The Little Mermaid rooms are standard value rooms that sleep only 4 - that's why I didn't include them)

    I hope this helps you Maria!  Let me know if you have any other questions - I'll be more than happy to help you.   Have a great day!
