Ah, OK -- so I talked to a Disney-loving friend of mine and this is what I found out. He and his family have an ADR at Park Fare on their departure day and are staying at Pop. He called ME and asked if they would be able to pick him and his party up from GF instead of Pop and the ME agent told...
I think this last round of price increases may be enough to send me off property. As much as I love the bubble, I'm not paying almost $300 for a room at a moderate when I could stay at a nicer hotel in the area for much less money and still get 60-day fastpasses. Of course, I'm just waiting for...
Well, I think it's not that the original bus driver takes you there, but you get put on the bus that is going to CR anyway. I have no idea if they'd do that -- my guess is no -- but when you check in to ME I just think it doesn't hurt anything to ask if you can be put on a different bus.
You know, I don't think it would hurt to ask when you get there. I was listening to a Disney podcast a few weeks ago where one of the hosts had asked to be dropped at a different resort than the one he was staying at and they allowed it. There's no harm in asking if it's possible.
TBH, I don't see how the price hike can possibly be meant for crowd control. The prices keep going up and the parks are as crowded as ever (and Disney keeps building more resorts to house the ever-growing crowds). I think Disney is raising prices because they can and people will pay it, plain...
This is what Touring Plans says, but I never felt like it took that long to get anywhere. It's one of the more centrally located resorts on property and it's lovely -- you're going to love it. It's one of our favorites.
I think different groups rotate in and out all summer long, starting in June, peaking in July, and then dwindling in August. You really can't avoid them at any point in July, but I think you see far fewer of them at the moderates than at the values.
Agreed. Last July we stayed at All Star Movies and they were awful to be next to -- kept us up all night. We asked to be transferred to CSR and there were no tour groups there. They were at Caribbean Beach last year too.
1. When we stayed last summer, Dig Site was open until 11 p.m., but that can change. They'll post the pool hours. The quiet pools don't close. As long as you're quiet, you can pretty much use them whenever you want. And yes -- the Dig Site is a large pool. I think it'll handle the extra people...
We've stayed in 24 and 34 and I liked 34 better simply because it's so close to the West Bus Stop, which we liked more than the South bus stop. It is a 7 to 8-minute walk to the food court, but we didn't mind that at all.
