I measured it with www.gmap-pedometer.com and it comes to about 400 yards from the very last room on the long trails to the bus stop. And 230 yards to the lobby.

Another thing that makes it seem shorter is that you are walking on carpet instead of sidewalks, so it's a little easier on the legs.

We were to the left of the lobby, down to the first section of rooms that sticks back toward Kidani and the walk was super easy and much shorter than it looks.

Right now, we are booked to stay AKV August 7-12, then move to BCV August 12-17. That may change when flights come out though, but fingers crossed that we get 10 wonderful days at Disney. Thanks so much!

I just looked up love bugs just to make sure. The ones we saw definitely were different. Very big, bigger than my thumb. I've seen love bugs before and they didn't bother me.

...plus, you can stop to look at the animals at any of the windows in the sections of hallways that separate one 'building' from another....
