Congrats!!! Happy you got what you wanted! Persistence pays off again!

Looking for suggestions for a website on how best go get around using Disney transportation. Such as how to get from AK to EPCOT and such.

Thanks

There is a direct bus from AK to EPCOT. All parks have a direct bus, but for travel to and from MK, you must go to the TTC. They are building more bus stops at MK to eliminate the need to go to the TTC, but I dont know when those will be done. Robo has a good transportation post. You might try an advanced search to find it.

ETA: Here it is...

I could switch from a POR RGR to a GV and save another $400 but proximity to the main building is important (although don't know how good our RGR standard location will be)...still trying for a preferred room. There are 3 of so I would guess we will be in the mansion section. With location being more important than view I don't know what to do!

Today Disney effectively used the FD carrot to wrestle even more money from me! Originally we had a preferred room at POR for 5 people (way before any FD announcement, didn't think thanksgiving would be included). A POR room for 5 with FD wasn't available for our dates on 8/1, our #2 choice (AoA) was not on the list, my #3 choice (Poly) was unavailable - but we decided to "splurge" and go with the Contemporary (Garden Wing) with FD for only $7 more than our original POR stay with no FD. After endlessly checking both the Poly and POR for availability, today a standard Poly room with FD finally became available, so I switched to that. It was another $150 or so, but the kids really wanted AoA or Poly if we weren't going to keep our POR reservation.

They'll be happy, but I'm still going to secretly keep scoping out POR, hoping a room for 5 becomes available.

I just wanted to announce to people who understand....I just booked our flights. We will be at CBR 11/23 to 12/3 with Free Dining. It has been a roller coaster ride waiting for FD and then trying to find reasonable flights. I can't believe I found them on a Friday which is not usually a good day to book flights. It is finally real now that the flights are purchased. Wooo Hooooo! Going to Disney!

So excited for everyone who is finally getting their FD or Room discount at their wanted resorts! It was so sad seeing people not able to get their choice resort when the discounts went active that Thursday, so I'm so happy for everyone! Persistence pays off

Hey guys. I'll be on and off the boards for the next few days, as I attend a Travel & Tourism Conference in Richmond.

I take it y'all can manage things just fine?
