This trip we had to use the boats but we never had to wait long. We love being about to walk or yes take the boat to the BC and walk around. We only had to rely on bus transportation for AK and Downtown Disney. We had to wait 45 min to return back to the resort from DD Disney after Cirque. The entire bus was not happy. We had great meals all around. We hit Artist Point twice and had our 2 favorite waiters.
We are looking forward to returning in Dec. DH is facing a knee replacement so hopefully by the time Dec rolls around he will be much better.
Glad you enjoyed even with his injury and that you're going back soon.

We've never had good luck with a nighttime bus back from Downtown Disney to any resort. When we did the late Cirque show we took a taxi instead since there is a taxi stop really close by. Best decision, took less than 10 mins and wasn't too expensive.

We've never had good luck returning from DTD at any time to any Deluxe. It has always been arduous and I've pretty much sworn off DTD because of it.

I guess we better plan on driving to DTD we have plans to spend a day at the resort swimming and then having lunch at WGPE around 1 using our free DQ vouchers and then meeting two other families at Ragland Road..

We have a reservation for a carriage ride at POR one evening too here I was trying to think of best way to get there and back... Not even thinking we will have our car.. I'm just so use to only using WDW transportation on our vacations! Lol

A few years ago we were coming back from DTD around 9PM and it took us about an hour to get to the BW. We were the last stop and it seemed like everyone was going to the BW. When we finally arrived the whole bus applauded.

I do love DTD but we only go once a visit because of the bus situation.

Yeah, bussing there is not great. We always rent a car, and we drive to DTD and usually AK also. Walk to DHS/Epcot, and bus to MK. We usually try to go to DTD during the day also, as it's less crazy.

I'm getting a bit nervous hearing about this DTD bus situation! We were intending to go on our arrival night so maybe we'll have to think about getting a taxi for the way back.

Last year we stayed at BC & it took over an hour to get back from DTD to BC & that was on a Saturday right after lunch! It was insane. First there weren't any buses pulling up for our resort, after watching multiple buses pull up for the same resorts, I went up to one of the drivers & ask him if he could get an ETA on the BC bus. By this time the area was FULL of people waiting to go to BC/YC, etc & we had been waiting a long time in the heat. He called in & one came by. We all got on & he went to the other side of DTD, stopped, picked up more people, then the bus driver got off to switch with another driver. Then waited as the inspection of the bus went on. And of course after finally taking off, they have to pass by one of the waterparks first, then the resorts. And BC was Last! All I could think of was "I should've taken a cab. I knew better. Why didn't I take a cab?" So for all those thinking of using Disney's bus service from DTD to their resort (no matter what day or time of day), DON'T DO IT! LOL. Take a cab.

Thanks, Nascargirl. You, sfbank and a few others were one of the biggest reasons we stayed BWI CL four years ago and you didn't steer us wrong. Previously, we were Polynesian CL fans, and I guess we still are, it's just Epcot location is so wonderful as the kids are older now.
Good luck to your DH, I've had a few relatives that have had knee and/or hip replacements and the key to success seemed to be to take the rehab seriously. The more work you put in then the better the success after.

Thanks, yeah, was going through old pics on the phone, and that was from the boat dock. Here is the matching pic towards the Inn side. Maybe its just me, but something seems a little off on it though.





Here is another "BW in the background" pic.
