Aliso Viejo is newer then Laguna Niguel with all school being local to the home you are talking about.
I have lived in Laguna Niguel since 1982 and I love it close to everything.
Both are great areas to live in with the temp in either about 15 degrees cooler then the other side of the fwy.
Costco has location in both.
Access to going to work for you is about 5 min difference. Good luck.
