I’m really excited to be going back to WDW in 50 days with DD5 twins (soon to be 6) after just returning with DD8 and DS10 (stayed at Dolphin). The original plan was for me to take the two older kids this summer, we’d all go as a family May 2020, then I’d take the younger ones summer 2021…but the littles were so sweet and understanding about their older siblings going without them, throw an AP into the mix, great summer 2019 discounts, low crowds, and wa-la - another trip booked!
They adore the little mermaid! I think they would love AoA, they love to draw, know all the movies and the theming would really appeal to them. However, I know the little mermaid rooms get a lot of flack for being far from buses, decor a little shabby. While I decide, I also booked Pop preferred room. When comparing my top picks for rooms on TP, LMR (corner building 7 or 9) was a 6 minute walk, Pop preferred (corner building 5) was a 3 minute walk. I honestly don’t think a 6 minute walk is bad at all. My gut says go with AoA, but I would love to hear from anyone who has stayed there, especially those who have stayed at the LMR, anyone? please tell me your honest thoughts.
We won’t’ be going back and forth to the food court to refill mugs or anything. Any stops we make at the food court will be on the way to transportation and vice versa. And it’s only for 3 nights. Total cost difference is $63 (Pop preferred $63 cheaper).
