For anyone that used the buses --

Is it an all-day pass, or just a round trip? My wife and I like to come back in the afternoons, and then head back to the parks in the evening. Just wondering if we'd have to pay twice per day.

'll be at BC in July and I was told when I confirmed my reservation, that the $5.00 is per person round-trip. If you go back to BC after going to the parks for a break, and you decide to go back to the park in the evening you will have to pay again.

I wish it was all day. We will have a 3 1/2 year old with us and he gets cranky easily. He will want to go back to BC and swim.

I just copied this from the Wyndham Bonnet Creek site:

• Shuttle To Walt Disney World ® Resort: Effective March 1, 2013 each guest at Wyndham Bonnet Creek utilizing the transportation shuttle to a Disney theme park or Downtown Disney will need a ticket to board the bus. Tickets will be sold at the resort for $5 per person per round trip for any Wyndham Bonnet Creek guest wanting to use this service. Children three years of age and under will be complimentary.

So, do they punch your ticket when you get on and off the bus?

No they take your ticket when you board at WBC and no ticket required when you board at the park, or that was the case this past April.

Yes, both are available. Request them when you check in and they will be delivered to your room very quickly.

I've been on hold with BC for half hour... apparently we booked a 2 bedroom deluxe through a timeshare swap ( We're a guest of someone) and the online confirmation stated 2 bedroom deluxe... now, a few months later my confirmation came in the mail... and it says 1 bedroom deluxe. Im sure Ill work it out but for times sake, wanted a quick idea....

anyone know the best tower to request if I want to be super close to the pool?

There are numerous pools, 2 lazy rivers, sprinkler play areas all over the resort. I do not think there is a single tower without a pool in front or adjacent to it. Two pools have slides - you must be able to swim on your own to use the slides. Some pools are zero entry.

We rented thru dollar at the airport for $178 all included for an 8 day stay.
Not sure we will ever use the shuttles again.....

So excited! We stayed at Bonnet Creek for the first time last month (May 10th-20th). I think we found our new resort home. We loved it so much, guess what I did yesterday? I booked not one, but two more trips down there. I booked a one bedroom through Shelby Resorts for eight nights Sept 14th-22nd and then booked a ten night stay in a one bedroom for Dec 6th-16th through Aaron Washburn. Both were renters listed on myresortscom. Anyone familiar with these two renters?

I requested quotes for both stays through not only these two, but also Vacation Strategy, Vacation Upgrades, Farrells, a seller on ebay, and another renter on myresorts.com. Shelby Resorts was cheaper for the Sept dates, but Aaron Washburn was alot cheaper than anyone else for the Dec dates.

I bought airfare for both trips last week when the prices dropped. I feel like I got such good deals for both trips ($274.00 for airfare and $595.00 for eight nights at BC for the Sept trip and $245.00 airfare and only $600.00 for ten nights at BC for the Dec trip). We already have annual passes for WDW and Universal, so all I need to do now is find a good price on a rental car for each trip.

I am currently renting from Aron Washburn he is great, I have to make changes, he has been quick, prompt, and GREAT communication. I almost rented from him last trip, but got a better deal through 5Star, so he has been around for awhile. Hope this helps

We booked through Vacation Strategies and were a little worried that all we had from VS was an email receipt telling us to show drivers license at check in. I called WBC a week before we left and found a reservation under our last name so then the worry went away. WBC provided laundry powder in our room. The washer/dryer were small top loading stackables. They were quiet and worked great. We had to ask for more laundry soap while there and had no trouble getting it from the front desk. Pools were nice and never really crowded. Never had time for the kids club activities. Ate one night at the pizza restaurant and it was good. Also had no hassle at check-in. Husband checked in and kids and I stayed in the car. He was never asked about attending any meeting. We left our phone plugged in too and the only message we got was about construction beginning on a pool in another tower. We will be back to Bonnet Creek. Very easy, convenient and clean. Thanks to this board for bringing it to my attention. I would have never known about this place without this board.
What towers pool was under construction? Is there a pool refurb going on???

I keep trying to go to "myresorts . com" but I can't find it? Is that what it is?

Pricing on a 2 bedroom vs. a 4 bedroom

Hi,
Can anyone tell me if it is normal to get quoted the same price for a 2 bedroom for 8 nights and a 4 bedroom for 8 nights? I got a quote from VS for Presidential units on both and received separate emails with the price being the same on both sizes. ??

Sorry about that. I just did a search and apparently it's myresortnetwork.com. Here's the site:
http://www.myresortnetwork.com/Condo...-Creek-Resort/ A friend used Shelby resorts in May and told me to contact them, so I'm not too concerned about them. I was just curious if anyone else had used either Shelby Resorts or Aaron Washburn.

When I requested quotes for our trip this past May, one of the renters offered me a two bedroom for the same price as a one bedroom. However, his prices were higher than most of the quotes I got, so I didn't go with him.
