No it's the second. We stayed there Memorial week 2 years ago and we never had problems with the bus. I don't think we ever shared in the mornings. In the afternoons did but it didn't take long at all. I don't think we ever waited over 10 minutes for a bus.

It's in the middle which can be a good thing. If busses are not sharing you could really take any of the 3 back and walk back to music.

Family suites are also in the 4 buildings closest to the food court/bus stops.

Looking at your dates it appears that two rooms at a value will add up to less than the ASMu suite whether you do POP or Allstars. The little extra may help with the dining plan upgrade and for that long of a trip you want to upgrade!

A plus for POP is dedicated bus system and walking over the bridge to eat at AoA which has a very good food court with many extras, particularly in the snack credit area.
I don't think OP can switch to two rooms since she booked just 1 with the Bounceback. Might be an option if they offer free DDP to the general public for her dates.

The fridge in the suite is a bigger than the ones in the standard rooms. I think it might have a tiny freezer too.

The thing is, that it is a bounceback offer, with free dinning, it does not alow me two rooms, it has to be one, or a suite. I Love POP.

Wasn't thinking it was a bounceback .... you might want to verify but I've been told by some that you can upgrade a bounceback to next level hotel but you can not downgrade it. Worth asking to be sure before you make any changes, I would hate for them to make the change for you but then you possibly lose the free dining. I have downgraded a bounceback but had to wait until the public offer for Free Dining came out to do so.
