We've been checking out everyone's pictures and it all looks great.
The only thing that has us worried is the bus times. We really don't want to spend almost an hour on the bus ride, especially if we have to stand Since ASMo is the last resort to get picked up. DH is thinking we'll just drive over to the parks instead
Wondering if anyone knows if there's special parking for those staying on site, or if it's all just general parking?

I heard the BoG would be changing their menu in January, which I would think would be fast since it's technically just opening. I kinda hope not, the food sounds amazing!

It could be that some menu items aren't getting ordered like they thought, so they might replace it with something people would order.... But that's just my thought

We just drove ourselves when we stayed there. No special parking - just in the general lots. But parking is free since you're staying on site.

Ooh! I was starting to think I smelled when I saw I was the only one at AsMo for my dates, but I see I have a friend for at least two days!

Is that Chicago cubbie blue? If so, welcome fellow Chicagoan. We're there the same week as you.

The more often a restaurant changes its menu, the better the restaurant. It means the chef is creative, or concerned about using whatever is right for that season.

Sure, unless they're just removing things! I don't think ribs every go out of season

Today is normally my off day (we work a 9/80 schedule), and I am at work!! Let's hear the mantra "Paying for Disney, paying for Disney, paying for Disney!" Don't mind the duplicate post when I'm here on Sunday too!

How early did you head out in the morning if you tried to make it to rope drops?

We usually had morning ADRs to make. Our first day we left an hour early because we had no idea where we were going

It's maybe a 15 - 20 minute drive anywhere from the resort, and then budget a small amount of time to get from your car. We probably could have left 45 minutes before parking opening and been there with time to spare. Maybe even less than 45 min.


.... I know I'm being incredibly helpful here

You could always try it both ways and see which one works out better. We liked going to our car after parks though instead of waiting for a bus as well.

I rarely write and am mostly a lurker, but couldn't help myself.

My DF and I will be in the world from 2/2 to 2/10 for our well deserved honeymoon .

We will be staying at Pop. This is the second time we are staying there and I would have loved to have upgraded to a moderate but the funds will just not be there after we spend everything we own on the wedding!

We have too many ADRs since we are on the DxDP, but we are trying BOG and going back to a few favorites.

57 days and counting!!!!!
