Just make sure to leave some extra time should your timing be poor with busing, etc. I would allow an extra 20 minutes... so a good hour for your trip.

I agree, also I like to get to the ADRs 15 minutes early.

I assume you will be taking the mk bus from AoA. As with anything always ask. We went a couple years ago from pop. Our ADR was well before mk opened. Our bus maybe had a dozen people and another party was going to chef mickeys as well. I mentioned this to the bus driver and he actually dropped us off at contemporary. It's a short walk (or monorail ride) anyway but it was nice to stay in that AC as long as possible - I try to save my profuse sweating until at least 10a

Thanks for the timing tips! This is our first trip to disney. So, if I understand correctly we can't actually take the bus right to the contemporary? We have to go to MK first and then take the monorail over?

Another question, is it easy to navigate getting from one place to another using the Disney transportation? On another night we need to get over to Downtown Disney

Correct, there is no resort-to-resort transportation, so you'll need to take the MK bus from AoA and then walk or take the resort monorail.

To get to DTD, you'll need to visit a resort and take the DTD bus from there, as there's no park-to-DTD bus transportation. Depending on where you are, sometimes it's best to considering returning to your "home" resort and then get the DTD bus from there. You don't have to do it that way, but it's sometimes a good transition so you can visit your room, change, etc.

Perfect thanks! I'll pass that along as an option should they decide against the dining plan. Personally, I think the DP would be a good idea for them mostly because it is prepaid so no argument about x wanting an expensive whatever at wherever, but we will see how she chooses.

They do, but they are not extremely cold. I would put my waters in there and they never froze, just got colder.

Right, I already forgot about that. Within the last year or so there were reports of testing of an AK to DTD bus, but during my February visit, that route wasn't available. Sadly. :-(
