Yes it is approximately 2 liters. I think the cost is between $3-4.
It is $2.99 for the 1/2 gallon of milk (bought one this week)

Thanks, I don't see why we would be in the other buildings but I was just wondering.

For those that stayed- is it possible to have late check out. And if not, can you leave luggage at hotel at safe room to continue the day and leave later for a late flight out?

You can ask for late check out. It is at the discretion of housekeeping. If it is really late you could be charged extra. I can't remember the times.

All the resorts have either bell service or luggage service where they will store your luggage in a secure area. Being a value resort AoA would have a luggage service where you can take your own bags and then pick them up at any time. Leave enough time before departure to pick up bags.

On that note, do you need your key to enter the pool area? Can you enter any area's pool depending which section you are staying in?

Each of the AoA pool areas are fenced and have a key entry system. You can use your AoA key from any section for all three.

That said, Josh from easywdw visited recently and saw the Big Blue pool gate propped open all during his report. He speculated perhaps it was to encourage traffic to the Drop Off pool bar, which also has some food items available.

last time we stayed at POP, Bell service came to get our luggage for us! (had a couple boxes and we were doing a split stay at AKL, just called and within 15 minutes he was there!

We'll be there at the end of the month. We are driving and I was wondering if it would make sense to drive and park near the bus stop when we want to take the bus to MK? Is there parking near the bus area? Just concerned about walking back at 10PM or later with very tired kids. I was also wondering how much of a wait there was to get a bus after park closings? Thanks! Hope you are having a great time!!

LOL we just got home from building 8 which we lovingly referred to as "outer mongolia".

It's really not a bad walk. We had asked for building 7 but got building 8....turned out to be a good thing as building 7 is Ursula - ick!

FYI we wanted to steal the shower head - man was that a good shower!!! Seriously I think we're now looking to buy the same one for our house.

For those that asked - most of the time the pool gates were closed but sometimes you'd find one open. One time we only had one room key with us - I was going back to the room to get changed (Kali River Rapids) DD (already in bathing suit) and dh were going to the pool. I took the key and sent them along figuring (correctly ) they'd find an open gate or get someone to let them in.
