I just bought the PhotoPass Plus! Now I only need to buy the tickets for MNSSHP! Early check-in is getting close as well.

Cell reception was terrible for me. I got a signal around the resort once or twice, but never in the room.

The reception was so bad, that I called and they reset the modem. It was much better but still not great at all

What about the buses since the whole resort is now up and running? We are booked in a Cars suite, but if buses are too bad we are thinking about changing back to WL.

I read someone's post about AoA that the longest they waited was for 90 minutes at MK back to AoA. I think it was after Wishes. I believe they also said that aside from that time, the buses were fine.

If you read this thread, people posted about buses.

We were there at the end of August. LM hadn't opened yet. It wasn't busy season yet it wasn't quite value season. We never had an issue with busses leaving AoA. The one time we had just missed a bus, and this was the only time there were more than a few families at the bus stop. We expected to wait awhile but they converted another bus to our location.

Leaving at park closing is always standing room only. One time DH and the big kids wanted to leave MK before wishes. They got to the bus stop and there was a bus there, but the bus didn't leave until wishes was over and the bus filled up. So they got to watch wishes from the parking lot (minus music and castle) and were the first ones on the bus.

We just returned and I posted that we has a problem only night after emh at Magic Kingdom. That for us was the exception. The buses were really good after that. Little waits( less than 10 min for the most part) AoA is about 10 min from Epcot and DHS and Ak and about 15 from MK. Best overall bussing experience. I was happy with it!

I sure hope they will be able to fix the wifi reception in the room since so many, myself included, bring notebook computers or iPads or other devices. I don't do a whole lot online while on vacation but I do keep up with my email each day.

I also use my cell phone to keep in touch with family while I'm on vacation so that access is important, too. I have an iPhone 4S on Verizon.

Has anyone compared the reception of different carriers while at AOA?

Just using Verizon, not wifi, on my Droid was great. It was a little iffy around 11 pm but otherwise no issues.

Just checked in and the LM suites. Small but cute! On top floor and can hear noise from all over, but overall quite nice and clean inside. Wasnt expecting the crowd to be as big, but not terrible.
