Which building is best at POP Century?

We leave in 8 days and I'm curious which everyone thinks is the best building to stay at in POP Century. We prefer to be close to a bus station and to the food court if possible. We have 3 small kids (6, 4 and 2). We don't really care about the pool or being close to it, as we don't plan on swimming!

We like Buildings 9 and 8 close to the 90s parking lot. We found that they are just a quick zip across the parking lot to the bus stops. Makes a big difference at night when everyone is dog tired and sleepy. If you look on the resort map you can see the layout and what rooms/building might be best to access the bus stops.

Are you staying preferred? If so then no matter where you stay you will be close to the buses and food.

Obviously there are buildings that are "real close" the 60's and 70's preferred are the closest to both. Some 50's are preferred, but while close to the food, they aren't that close to the buses. (some will disagree with this) but take a look at the map, the 50's are on the opposite side of Classic Hall to the buses.

Anyway, I would ask to stay in the 60's or 70's (70's is my favorite because of the them) but either will be good.

Building #10 it is right next to the main building and not far from the buses at all. Or 50's building #1 is on the other side of the main building also Building #6 wouldnt be bad but for close to main building and parking I would go with 70's or 50's even 80's has some rooms near parking and is not that far to the main building. Even if you dont have a preferred room you can request it you may or may not get it but you could ask for a room as close as possible to what you requested if they cannot grant your 1st request (: i've always done well with room requests at POP We were in the 2nd section of 60's rooms which also was not very far from the main building and buses on the back side closest to 70's and it was a standard room if you have that also 80's building has a section close to the main building which backs up to 70's building 10 along with parking near.
