We will be staying at ASSp starting July 19. We are renting a car so would like a room close to a parking lot. Anyone know if all buildings are close to parking lots or if there are certain buildings I should request? Thank you!!

Going back once again

We are booked into Sports from November 25th to December 1st (just missing Lustergirl).

Who would have figured that we would move closer and go less often? Maybe next year will be different now that we are settled in nicely?

Ang, where you go wrong is not going when I am there as I can drive to DTD and at Sports I do not even get lost in the parking lot!

SG (nice chatting with ya)

I just booked for one night before our Cruise in Feb. I am keeping it as a suprise from DS, who has always wanted to stay at Sports. I can't wait to see the look on his face when we get in the Magical Express line, and he finds out where we are headed! (although he might figure it out when he sees the Magical Express tags on the bags, so I'd better have a camera handy then too!)

Teach

Okay, Miss Ang. Since you can do it all please teach me how to get out of EPCOT without ending up on the interstate.

That is not an interstate you get on its Epcot center drive so still a Disney road, silly. lol You just go down I think it is two exhits and it takes you right out to Buena Vista Drive just west of DTD by POFQ. This is just my theory from what I have experienced but the only way I have been able to get back to World Drive from Epcot parking lot is when I parked on the West side of the parking lot so if you park on the East side you are stuck with Epcot center drive. Its all been luck of the draw depending on what side of that parking lot is opened when we park.

I am editing this now that I looked up a map of the area around Epcot. It shows that you can pass up the ramp to Epcot center drive to get back to world drive but for the life of me I swear they don't let you pass up that ramp but when I zoomed in sure enough there is a lane to go straight and not get on that ramp to Epcot center drive and it will take you out to world drive. Give that a try next time.

I am so sad. I am there during POP Warner week. Here is hoping for a great week. It would be nice to see you again. First trip to disney in almost 3 years.
Are you eligible for the new free dining promo? It is blacked out when I am there. I already have my time planned out Get to disney around lunch time, check in, catch a bus to HS, then hop a boat to the Boardwalk to have lunch at the ESPN Club (a favorite of mine's). Then hop a boat back to Epcot and drink my way around the world.

Directions

My dear Ang, you are assuming that I know East from West. I do know left from right, regardless of what some might think. I have driven to EPCOT with no problem but have ended up on the interstate leaving every single time and for me that is not a good deal so to protect the innocent I just take the bus.

Luster, yes we are getting the Free Dining offer. If you can book a day when it is in effect you can get it for your entire trip also. I will have to check out the dates but I am thinking you probably know all that. I will not be checking out until the 1st so maybe we can pass each other at least. I would enjoy watching you drink your way around the WS (much more than doing so myself). Frankly I would not make it past either Mexico or Canada any old way.

My first drink will probably be a slushie in France and by the time I make it around to Mexico and the tequila bar I will be all set for the night.

SG,

I have an awsome sense of direction and I forget that not everyone does, sorry. I was thinking if you knew what side innoventions east and west was you might be able to apply that to the parking lot. As you come in to park east is to your left and west is to your right.

You showed me where the Walmart was that one time and I remembered exactly where to go the next time I came down. Now I know where 3 different Walmarts are and how to get there. lol

Try to drive to Epcot next time and stay in the left lane going straight past that ramp which will take you right over to world drive with nowhere else to go. If for some odd reason you get on what looks like an interstate get off at the second ramp that says to DTD and I cant remember what else it says on the sign. You will go down to Buena Vista Drive that runs in front of DTD and turn right and you will recognize where you are going toward Pop, ASSp DS etc. Epcot center drive runs into I4 and if you keep going it becomes 417 so you are not getting off at the ramp. If you end up in the other lot you will have no other choice than to follow a ramp that will take you right to World drive so you can not get lost.

Lustergirl, That walk from Mexico to the front of the park is going to be so much fun. lol Enjoy!!!

Tink1972,
I do not remember if they were flat screens or regular tube TV's, sorry. That said does it really matter what they are as long as they work?

That is almost true. The only exception being something like this: Free Dining is offered March 7-15. You check in on March 1 and plan on staying until March 10. You can have Free Dining for the 7th thru 10th, but they won't go back and give it to you for your whole stay.

However if your trip was from March 15-25 you would get Free Dining for your whole trip. Disney will extend Free Dining forward, but not backwards.

Just wanted to explain all that so there was no confusion.
