We saw many MK buses, a lot of EPCOT buses, even some DHS buses and a couple of buses to the water park but not ONE bus to AK. The drivers called for an AK bus more than once but the bus came at exactly 7:48. I remember it very well because I was terribly upset I was gonna miss my reservation, which was the one I was most looking forward to. We got to AK at 8:10AM after the bus did the circuit at POR, ran full speed ahead and they let us in at TH. I did go to POFQ guest services when we got back and explained the whole ordeal and they were extremely sorry for our trouble but had I missed my ADR I would have been truly MAD.
Do I agree with his reaction of screaming and blaming the CM? NO. But don't say it's not possible to wait a long time for a AK bus because it is.
We waited for over two hours for a bus that worked to load my moms chair during the slow season. They kept yelling the poor kid at the bus stop that one was on its way. Over and over. We could hear it. It was hard not to be crabby with him when we were so irritated with the situation. I don't think we were. But we aren't there for a once in a lifetime trip during peak season either.
