Driving time

Anyone know approximate time from hotel parking lot to front entrance of Epcot if we take our car? I saw 18 minutes by car somewhere but I don't know if that includes the time you have to wait for a tram. Is 18 minutes on the conservative side?

Two questions:

1. Is there any way to see what the nightly movie title/time is? We may want to check it out on a "rest day"

2. About the "no fridge credit".. Do you only get that if you complain to a CM about not having a fridge? It would be inconvenient to not have a fridge and I'd like the credit, but I am very shy and really never complain or ask for things when it comes to customer service issues. If they just offer it I would definitely want it, but not if I have to specifically ask.

Thanks!!

You have to ask for it. They will not automatically give it to you upon check in because the check in CMs do not know which rooms have a working fridge and which ones don't. So you would have to go into your room and then if no fridge, go back to the Custom House and inform them you don't have a fridge and you would like the $15 per night credit.

We stayed at the All Star Movies Sept 13-21. When we checked in, I asked if our room had a refrigerator, and the CM said no. I asked if they were still giving the credit and she said she would apply it to our room card as a credit. If we didn't charge anything to the room during the trip, the credit would be put back on our debit card. We did buy my granddaughter a few things (OK, a LOT of things, lol) and used the credit.

It was quick and easy.

We stayed in June, and the drive to Epcot was no more than 10 minutes for us. We didn't use the tram, just walked to the gate, as we were in the second row of cars.

The DIS rules won't let me post the link, but if you google for "Disney outdoor movie schedule" the first link should be from build a better mouse trip. Click on that and you can select the resort you are staying at and get the movie schedule. Disney doesn't release the new schedule until the 1st and this Site usually has them posted by the 4th of each month.

Oh ya and something else weird happened too. 3:30 am someone is knocking on our door. My DH answered it and it was luggage service with someone's bags with our room number on it. My husband said "those aren't our bags" and the luggage guy was really taken back and asked if he was sure. My DH said "yup, we've been here 4 days now and we drove". The luggage guy was really confused and didn't know what to say. Since when do they deliver luggage at 3:30 am?

That's not uncommon at all. ME will pick up your bags up until 10:00PM. The luggage delivery is advertised as around 3-4 hours after you check in. If you check in at 10:30 or 11PM, then luggage delivery will be around 2-3:30AM. Bell Services goes under the impression that everyone wants their luggage delivered unless they hear otherwise. Whenever we have checked in late, we have asked Bell Services to hold our bags until the morning and they always have.

It is uncommon/weird that they had the wrong room # and woke you up.
