DisneyPrincess Mom of Two - your question about driving to bus stop - why not just take your car to the park?
Then you would not have to wait on a bus, or transfer sleeping kids from bus to car for drive back to your room location. Staying at a Disney resort gives your free parking at the parks. If you are staying until closing of the park, I would suggest you drive as there is always a very long line for the buses at the end of the day.
The line for the trams to the parking lot moves much faster than the bus lines do at closing.l

We were in a LM room and I had zero cell service. I had to go outside of the room to make a call or text.... I thought our beds were comfortable! No complaints from my family

we had cell service in the room - no problems. For the record we were in 8817 (4th floor building 8 facing the parking lot but down near the lake). We have straighttalk.

Beds were comfortable. Room temp was set at 74. Only complaint was the location of the smoking area directly outside the food court. When you sat in the Little Mermaid section of the food court you could smell the smoke if the wind was blowing. You could also smell it on that end of the Nemo pool.

I called down once for someone smoking on the balcony and was told someone would be sent out directly to deal with it. DH saw security on segways roaming the outer walkways of our building on another day.

I do want to add that they have issues with the food at A of A. Food service was really slow from prep to check out, where you order hamburgers the line goes where a cash register is. Poor design. The garbage cans are so small and poorly designed. It is a struggle to throw food away.

I agree, the trash/tray disposal area is poorly planned. The door for trash is much too small and it always covered in some sort of mess, as is the floor in front of it. I can't understand how this got approved.

Someone mentioned earlier about the weight of the comforters and I agree; the fabric and the stitching make them very stiff and heavy. I'd like to see a warm comforter that is less structured.

We were in building 7 and didn't have any issues with cell service. We made some calls and I used internet on my phone thru Verizon. No problems at all.

I am just back from a week's stay in the LM section 8807, 4th floor facing the pool. I also was able to get cell service in the hotel room. I have Sprint (if that matters).

I did find that the walk to get drinks was quite a huff. We got the free drink mugs and barely used them because no one wanted to walk to the food court after walking all day in the parks. I really wish they would put a drink station near the little mermaid section.

I heard from several people that they got room credits because there were several issues with their rooms, safes and the walk. The people that were staying next door to me received a $200.00 room credit because of the problems they were having.

I still had a great time
