Thanks, now that I look again at that photo I see that is EXACTLY what I was questioning.

Does anyone know if that section of building 4 gets much noise from the food court and bus stop?

Can we say food issues?

No soap dish is a huge pet peeve of mine. I'd rather they throw it away then let it sit around goofy on the counter.

He's great isn't he? He's part-Dutch, and speaks several European languages fluently. He's quite a character, and a lovely person to chat to.

Definetly stop and say Hello. One of our conversations he commented on how even on vacation so many people are in such a rush. At least a hello and thank you when he opens the door. Remember he is a person and not just a door stop 😀

I have researched for weeks on here which would be the best room for me to request. I will be a single mum travelling in oct for two weeks with a 14 and 9 yr old.
I have asked for building 4 corner room on the third floor! I went for the top as I thought it may be quieter. I realise they cannot always do requests but I was told there would be a good chance. It was after reading how close it was to buses and to the food court I choose 4.

Any other tips I would be grateful as this is my first USA trip ! Do people pack pool towels or can you get them at the resort?

Sounds like a great location to ask for; maybe tell them WHY you are asking for it though, so in case they can't get you building 4 they know what criteria you've got to help find another room.

Pool towels are provided free, so no need to pack any. Leave plenty of space in your bags for bringing shopping back!

Thanks Andre! I said it was as I was a single parent it would make trips to the drinks station quicker.
That's good news about the towels I am planning on having a shopping day if we can get to the mall as I am not driving. So we will need plenty spare room in the suitcases!
So excited now less than five months to go!

I took that photo a week ago, no noise from any direction really. To be honest when we were in the room we were usually so tired we would have slept through anything.

He was very proud the Neil part of his name was Scottish.

I had a similar conversation with him one day about people rush, rush, rushing!

Airport Shuttle

Going in December and wondering if others have taken the airport shuttle to and from vacation. Not so worried about getting there on the airport shuttle but has anyone taken it back to the airport and how much time to you allow for that? Our flight takes off early (8:00) so I am hoping that maybe not many people will be leaving at 5:30 or 6:00 to get to the airport in time? Any suggestions or can anyone tell me what they did? THANKS!

ME picks you up about 3 hours before your flight time. You don't get a choice, that's just what they do.

Thanks for your help - 3 hours should be plenty of time to get to the airport!

Isn't that garden one of the DSA? We would cut through on our way to the bus stop. It's a lovely area. Usually wasn't anyone there.
