We have 3 nights at the Poly (renting DVC) followed by 2 nights at AoA (standard…so Little Mermaid building) for our 9/30-10/5 trip.
I was originally going to book POP, but it wasn’t available then and I figured it would be cool to try AoA as we have never stayed there before. Handy as the entire trip has turned out to be one of firsts for both resorts and dining.
So after reading on the Disney Dish thread that there have been a lot of cancellations, I checked and POP is available for our last two nights.
I can keep AoA, or switch to POP for less money. Heck I could get a Preferred room ($43 less/night) or Preferred Pool room ($33 less/night). I would lean towards Preferred w/o the pool if we switched.
This is a park heavy trip with not much resort time planned by the end of our stay. Part of me wants to try AoA, and part of me is trying to calculate how much closer we will be to the Skyliner station w/ a Preferred POP room vs a Little Mermaid room at AoA …and if there is a difference, is it worth switching for?
We really liked POP a few years ago (stayed in a Standard room in the 50’s…pre-Skyliner), but AoA is new to us. But the downside is Little Mermaid is a bit farther away than everything else.
