Value resorts - bus question
 
I was just looking at the map for Art of Animation resort. It looks like the only bus stops there are located at the front of the resort all together, as opposed to having several bus stops around the resort like they do at the moderates.

Is this accurate? Just one bank of bus stops there? Do any of the value resorts have bus stops throughout the resort or are they all like AoA?

Thanks in advance!

All value resorts have only one bus location in the front of their main buildings. The All Star resorts will share buses during nonpeak times.

Thanks for the quick reply. :)

Just piping in to add...

When I stayed at CBR I found the multi stops to be more chaotic and time-consuming than the All Star system. I preferred the system at the All Stars. I imagine each of the moderates have different experiences but in the six days I was at CBR we never got "lucky" with a quick bus experience.

Just to further clarify...
You're never that far from the bus stops in any Value resort-they are all pretty compact! The only Mod I have ever looked round (apart from staying at FQ which is small and dainty:rotfl:!) is POR and i cannot believe how far people would have to walk back to the main building from some of the furthest points!

there is only one stop for AOA...at the front of the main building. I f you are staying a distance from this point, getting to that spot and back to your room at night, with children half asleep, is not fun. I upgraded this year to avoid that annoyance.

We actually favored Pop's buses compared to POR and CBR. Especially at busy times. They have a corral that keeps the line straight. At the moderates there is no way to keep a line so some people would just walk up and jump on. Not everyone was like that but some were. And I hear that AOA is very similar.

It is... AoA has a Queue with chains that help keep the line orderly, same as POP! :thumbsup2

Heading back down to WDW next week. Spending most of the time at Music but moving over to AoA-LM for our last few nights. Love it there. Yes, there is only the one bus stop, same as the other value resorts. BUT..I have to say that I actually prefer the value single bus stop to the multiple bus stops throughout the moderates. Sure, you may have a slightly shorter distance to walk back to your room from the bus stop at a moderate, but with the bus making all those stops, it takes longer all told.

I have never had an issue with the bus service at the values....any of them. Certainly is better than the bus service at the deluxe resorts!!! I have had much longer walks to my room, from the bus stop, at BWV than from any value bus stop back to my room!!!

Have to disagree -At AoA, if you are in the LM mermaid section - LM building, especially in the far end rooms, you are just about as close to POP buses as AoA buses. We ended up driving our car to AoA parking lot closest to the buses to then take the bus to the park (at least to MK - we ended up driving to the other parks).
