That's one of my dilemma's... should I rent or just rely on the buses? Does anyone know how much renting a car would be for about a week?

Okay I think we have it narrowed to AOA for our November 2013 trip pre Deam cruise! Looking like we will be in a Lion King suite from Nov 16 - 21!! So excited! We contemplated POR, but are backing away from that thinking it will just be too cramped. Plus DH and I are excited about having a little bit of space to ourselves.

OT but on our last trip to the Poly in Sept, the buses were horrible there, we waited about an hour for an AK bus one day. So the bus issues are at all level of resorts I think, and as a PP stated it is probably about timing too.

It's just part of being at WDW, and you take the good with the bad. Sometimes you luck out, sometimes you don't
exactly, I think i've read more complaints about bus service at deluxes than I have about mods & values....

does anyone know if they have cots there? I'm bummed about the bed situation in the suites (spoiled by having 4 beds at ASMU) but it would be more tolerable if we could get a cot so we could all have our own bed.

It looks like it is so hot there right now! I looked yesterday and it said highs of 85 or 86 for S,M, Tu next week with a 0% chance of rain! It was in the 40s this AM here.

I need to figure out what to wear on the way down there. It looks like once we get there, we'll be hopping in the pool! We get in at 10:40 and I hope that we get a room sooner than later.

Sorry but I find this funny. I live in Dallas so 85 is a nice cool day to me. I'm used to 100+ days during the summer.

We had a horrible summer, also. I can't believe how many pages I've missed on this thread nor how close my trip is getting. The weather is something I have to watch closly because we have never gone after Thanksgiving before and I guess we're going to have to pack a little of everything for the weather. I am, however, hoping for some good swimming weather.

I think it's funny that when there is an inch of snow in the south that schools close and people run to the store for food (well according to my many friends who live in the south and post on FB).

We had a hot summer, all of my flowers died. We used our new pool a lot though.

Depends on when you are renting. We rented a full size car for 8 days last week and the total cost with taxes and all was $160. Generally, I would expect around $200 unless you are going over a holiday.

It's not the snow that's so much a problem as it is the ice. It will snow and then warm up during the day & melt some snow. Then at night it will drop below freezing and freeze everything solid. That's the problem we have here. But we may get 1 or possibly 2 snow falls a year do its not a constant problem.

Wow that's actually not bad. Now I'm debating if it would be better just to rent a car or depend on the buses...

We have that happen here and it sucks, makes it harder to drive.

honestly, I'd save the money but that's just me. You'll have to pay for parking too which I think is $15. Like others have said, AoA currently does not share busses with any other resort so it'll be better than if you stayed at some of the deluxes.

If you're staying at a Disney resort like AoA for instance you don't pay to park at the theme parks.
