It's just me and my sister going no kid's.
$337.50 for the same size room, but different decor... you're the only one who can decide if it is worth it to you. I personally would not pay the extra as it is just my wife and I with no kids, but that is just my feelings on the matter. Everyone has a different perspective on what thngs are worth.
If you really want the River view, then go for it.

I totally agree with this. We decided upon the royal room because we wanted to make our trip a little more magical for our daughter.

Thanks. Yeah, I added requests to my reservation shortly after booking and will send a fax a few days out from the trip. I still have 51 days to go. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH

We used the south stop once and the mansion stop everytime after that. Everytime the order was (we took the buses there 4 times) the 2 AB stops, the mansion stop (think that is east), then the south stop was last. They did this same route for drop off. This was the route we took at 12 pm,2 - 8 am trips, and 130pm. The bus was almost empty when we got one from the mansion stop. The one time we left from south, and when we stopped at south there was always a huge line. The bus went fairly empty with about 4 families to standinv room only and packed in. Many times not everyone got on.

NINE for us too!!!! I'm a teacher, and I just finished my report cards, so now I can actually let myself feel excited! Still a LOT to do in the next week and a half, but report cards are always a BIG hurdle, so it feels so good to have them done! Now I can work on some Disney stuff

We used Apple as well to rent a stroller for our trip in April and were really pleased. The stroller was clean and in excellent shape, it was waiting for us when we arrived and was a breeze to manouver. And you can't beat the price, I had it for 6 days and it cost $35!
