This may have been covered already, but I don't have the time to read all 165 pages!

how's the bus system there? We stayed at Carribean Beach last year and it took so incredibly long to get to any of the parks. we left the room 1 hour before our breakfast reservation one morning and STILL missed it! i felt like so much of our vacation was spent sitting on a bus.

Do the busses make multiple stops at AOA? Did anyone have a particularly good or bad bus experience there?

Thanks!

this is probably a nutty question: Is Mickey Waffle on the QS breakfast menu? Also, where can I find a QS menu for all meals at AOA?

I wouldn't buy the refillable mug until you have made th walk from your room to the food court a time or 2.

We had refillable mugs since we were part of the dining plan but barely used them. When we got back from the parks, the last thing we wanted to do was go back to the room, then back to the food court and back to the room again. If you have a car and can keep them there and get them on your way back, it's a different story.

A couple times I knew I had the refillable mug in the room but just bought a new drink on our way back off the bus at the end of the day rather than wal back and get it.

Although if you plan to spend a lot of time at the Nemo pool, there is a small mug filling/cleaning station at the outdoor bar and you are close to the cafe. But I agree it is possible it might not be worth it if you don't have the DP.

Just looked at the menus from the earlier post, it's nice to see Indian type food available somewhere in the WDW as the wife and I couldn't think of anywhere else that had it on our last trip...

Also, has anyone got any feedback on the Indian food, hopefully is good and will make archangel from all the burgers and chicken strips on counter service lol

I found the bus system great for a new resort. Only one bus stop in front of AH (the lobby), compared to many at CBR. I had good experiences on AoA's buses, never waiting more than 20 minutes, and this was only because we JUST missed the cutoff to the first bus. There are also cast members helping to load the buses, making it smooth and speedy!

I agree. We had great bus service the entire 10 days of our stay.

How is the laundry?

Planning a week long trip in mid-May and AOA is one of the resorts we are considering.

As a family of 6, we generate a LOT of laundry on vacation. I've read a few reviews about the laundry facilities at AOA being too small and people having to wait in long lines to wash their clothes. This is very concerning to me.

For those of you who have already stayed at AOA, how did you find the laundry facilities? Is there a time of day that is better/worse? I'm willing to get up at 5am and wash clothes if that's what I need to do!

Thanks for the help!
