It's hard to beat bldg #5 fr being close to the food court and lobby. I wish I remembered the room # we stayed in, but it was ground floor and about two door from the lobby/fc end of bldg #5. It was maybe a 25 yard walk to the food court -very convenient for mug refill runs! Best of all noise was not a factor at all for us. There's probably a map somehwere on here that can pinpoint which exact rooms are best.

I see that your question has been answered but I want to share my ironing secret. I always iron everything so when we leave my clothes are pressed. They never arrive in the same condition that they were in when I packed but I hate to iron on vacation. I bring a small bottle of Downey Wrinkle Release. Just hang your things up and spritz them. smooth them out a little by hand and your clothes are wrinkle free. That stuff got expensive so now I make my own.

A couple T fabric softener, a couple T rubbing alcohol and fill the bottle with water. You can also use a dryer sheet instead of the liquid softener if you choose. I never have used the sheet but I read that it works.

I have always just taken an empty spray bottle and used warm water. But I will have to try this new recipe!

This past trip we were

in room 5248. Second floor of Bldg 5, courtyard not poolside and at the end nearest the food court. Short walk to food court, bus stop, parking lot, pool and lobby. The longest walk I had was to the ice machine which is near the elevator towards the river.

"which bus to go to EPCOT! Bus Stop A or Bus Stop B"

I guess it's B. I think DHS and MK stopped at the front one and Epcot and DAK at the back one. It's not a big issue if I have them wrong. They're right next to each other

glad to hear good things re the transportation system!

still on fence whether to drive to MK or grab a bus for the one day we have a the Keys to Kingdom tour (9 am) booked? i was thinking either way would require same amount of time thinking 7:30 am bus stop or do u think later bus (8 am?) would still get us to MK in time?

just worried as @ different AS resorts, many times we'd have to wait in long line, sometimes 3 buses loaded before our turn.

we ate @ hotel, friendly's (we don't have them in our neck of woods lol) and picken's buffet...i got so sick afterwards

the ghost tours look very cool, on our next trip. I will say based upon the traffic end of April, i can't imagine how crowded it gets in summer season.
