Hi!
My Bf and I will be staying at ASMo Aug18-22nd! We have ADR at CRT for 9am. The CM who I spoke to on the phone told me to give ourselves 90 minutes to get from the resort to MK. Most of the posts I've seen on here suggest that the travel time is only 15 minutes. I obviously want to give us plenty of time to get there and be get some empty park pictures, but how much time do we really need to plan for to get there at that time in the morning?
Thanks!

I would be at the ASMo bus stop by 7am.
I don't like rushing around and the possibility of being late.

So in the mornings you definitely need to allot more time? Is there any kind of breakdown anywhere about time of day/how long it takes from resorts to parks? And is it just a bus ride to MK from ASMo?

It is just a bus ride, but the buses aren't always (or usually) at the stop when you get there. The buses run approximately every 20 minutes; if your bus is pulling away as you get to the stop, it could be another 20 minutes before another bus comes. Factor in the time to get from your room to the bus stop, wait for the bus, drive to the park, walk from the unload zone, get through bag check, through the turnstiles, etc. it doesn't usually take a full hour, but if the timing is just wrong, it can.

Ok, makes sense! Thanks!

I have a question. Does anyone know why All Star Sports always seems to be the least expensive of the value resorts? Thanks.

Have a great trip! As for MNSSHP, it's worth every penny, and easy to get tickets. Just book in advance when the tickets go on sale. The wait times for all rides during the party are minimal, special things happen at the Haunted Mansion, and don't miss the amazing parade -- it's worth waiting for.

It's not really less expensive. They all have the same rack rates. Sports just seems to be less popular so they might put it on sale more. I've actually find Music to be the cheapest when I'm looking but I rarely look at sports because I have 0 desire to stay there. From what I've read and seen all Value Resort rooms are identical in size, layout and furniture. The only difference between them all is the theme-ing and the sports theme is less popular than the other more "Disney" themes.

Are there fridges in the proffered rooms at movies also when you get there can you pick between toystory ( we want that) . Are all rooms outside walk out rooms? It's our first time at Disney. And would you suggest bus or car to parks we are driving . Doing all parks mabie drive animal kingdom? Any good advice? Is there that best room to get?

It is best to have any room/building requests added to your reservation. You can do this anytime from when you book up until 5-6 days prior to your arrival. Just call the central reservations line and have them add your requests to your reservation.

Personally, when I'm on vacation I really don't want to drive myself. We have never had any issues with the buses at any level resort at WDW. We view the bus rides as part of the experience, it's a great way to meet people from all over the world.
