    My 18 years daughter and me will be at December in WDW, just looking pro and cons between POP and AOA Little mermaid area...Trying to have an amazing Christmas and new year time full of pixie dust

    Hi Jaysmar!

    Holiday time at Walt Disney World is my favorite! The decorations, special events, characters and special treats make visiting at this time of year extra special.

    Disney's Pop Century Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort are two great options! Disney's Art of Animation Resort is newer of the two and they are both located on the same street, so they are pretty much equal distance from the parks.  

    My personal favorite is Disney's Art of Animation Resort being the only resort that fully immerse you into theming and characters from Disney animated movies. The Little Mermaid area is a bit further away from the lobby and Landscape of Flavors, the food court, than the rest of the sections, but the extra walk doesn't bother me. The Little Mermaid Resort rooms are adorable and I swear there's something magical about the mirror in the bathroom. I especially love walking around the Resort to take pictures of the larger than life characters and the Cars section will make you feel like you're actually in Radiator Springs!

    Disney's Pop Century Resort is also a great Value Resort! The newly renovated rooms are beautiful and unlike any other room you'll find at Walt Disney World. Each section is themed after a decade with huge icons that you'll find familiar. 

    One of the newest additions to both of these Resort hotels will be the opening of the Disney Skyliner, a gondola transportation system, in the fall of this year that goes back and forth between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Have a magical day!
