Turk - Thanks so much for the wonderful review. My DW, MIL, and DS will be there in July, and we cannot wait! Its good to hear that the buses were not an issue as it has been a growing concern for us! Our son is one, so getting a seat is important! Do all the buses still stop at Kidani first leaving the parks,(Except DTD bus)?

What is the walk time from Jambo to Kidani? I'm thinking we'll more than likely make the trip each morning before heading to the parks just to ensure we get on a bus! Then again, should we even expect bus crowding for rope drop (regular or AM EMH) buses in early October? I remember when we stayed at Port Orleans a couple of years ago in early June that pretty much no one was on the bus for AM EMH.

Ooh...good question...we will have our car too, but the buses are generally so easy...going in early August.

Fifteen minutes, give or take. I can't remember the actual distance though.

What time do the buses start to run from DAKL?

We have an ADR for 8m at Tusker's.

Also how much time should we give ourselves to get to the restaurant?

Many thanks

I am terrible with judging distance so can't give an exact. But, it is basically right at the pool area.

Thanks Kelly!

....if you're at the bus stop at AKL by 7:30, you'll probably do fine....is that day an EE day?

Ok Thanks, no it's not an EE day, so the park should be nice and quiet at that time of morning.
