Question wdw parks' resort bus pick-up order?

Wow! Sorry if the title is a bit confusing. I am wondering if anyone has a link or reference to the general order by which the resort bus system is structured at the parks? In all times past, we have stayed at the value resorts that, understandably, have these bus pick-up points at the furthest location in order (ya get what ya pay for). My presumption is that the layout will be by scale of hotel cost, but have been looking for a reference.

The fams is looking to stay at another resort and I am curious as to how this might factor into the decision. Not a lot of merit will be placed on this factor in particular, but I like to have all the ducks in a row.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance.

Probably would be better if you asked this in the main forum, but I'll try to answer it here for you.
Usually, note I say usually, the deluxes have bus stops closer to park entrances. But, this is not always the case. At MGM, POP Century is closest to the entrance, same with at DTD. But, at Epcot it's way down the road. And even if someone could tell you here how the bus stops are set up today, at each park, that could conceivably change next week. Choose your resort based on other parameters, not where the bus stop is at each park. ..especially since each park has a different order.

Oh, and by the way...Welcome to the DIS boards!!!!

Thank you very much for the welcome and the input! As I said, this isn't a big factor more than just trying to jog my aging memory! I warmly recall carrying two kids after the MNSHP to the All-Star corral and waiting patiently with a throng of other families to catch a bus. Pop Century is, of course, much better as service is dedicated to one resort vice three. The major conditions for our selection this time out will be resort offerings based upon our growing kids (now 8 and 13 y.o.).

This is our third trip to WDW in October and will be anxious to see how much attendance has increased from the last time. What was once a relatively quiet time of the year has grown so much.

Really missin' the magic!!!

Is there a train that goes from California to Florida? My mom doesn't really like to ride in airplanes, and the gas prices are pretty high now a days, they don't want to drive

Missing Important WDW Transportation Information

There is very little transportation information on this site regarding the WDW Watercraft (ferry boats, motor cruisers and motor launches) that service the Transportation & Ticket Center, Magic Kingdom and the nearby WDW hotels and the campground on Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon. These boats are part of the WDW Transportation Department just like buses and monorails.

Go to allearsnet.com for information on the WDW Watercraft.



Effective 11/18/08, WDW Watercraft OPS on Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake have undergone a few changes. See the following for up-to-date info:

We are heading to WDW on Sept 9th. At the beginning of August, I thought I registered with DME via the website. However 10 days later I received an e-mail saying they could not process my request any further due to the website being wholesale people only. Has it always been like this and I just missed it?

Question LYNX bus in WDW ?

We are staying in WDW when we are on holiday in December - we are not hiring a car so are looking for information about what is the best way to travel from WDW to International Drive/Premium Outlets/Florida Mall. Is there a LYNX bus that we can get that will take us to any of the places mentioned from the TTC ? There will be 7 of us in our party so if we were to use taxis we would have to take 2 taxis unless we were able to get a people carrier. Any infomation greatefully received .

Bus service

Hi! DH & I have a 9:30 a.m. breakfast ressie at Cape May on a day that we are also going to Epcot. I'd like to park the car as few times as possible. Can we park at Epcot and catch a bus to CM and back to Epcot? My original thought was to walk from Epcot to CM but didn't realize exactly how far it is, and think it would be quite a quick hike from Epcot gate at 9 a.m. to CM at 9:30. Plus, I forgot that World Showcase doesn't open til 11 a.m. so we may not have even been able to walk all the way through. Thanks for your suggestions and opinions.

Useful thread for WDw boat info in the MK area

This thread includes useful information on boats in the Magic Kingdom area:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1614065

Perhaps we could reformat the thread to make it a reference for transportation FAQs and regularly update the links in the first posting. I am guessing that more DISers would read it if it had the word "FAQ" in the title.

The problem with stickies is most people don't bother to look at them before they post. Maybe it is different on transportation.
