Ooooh this would be interesting to know for in a few weeks...

Does it depend how busy the bus is though? On the two occasions I've used it (to ASMo and AKL) we went straight there. We were the only ones on the bus when we went to AKL though.

There's no set route either in terms of which resorts or what order. It depends on demand.

I believe it varies depending on the time of day and the number of people waiting on the bus. My last two trips to POFQ, the ME bus stopped at Old Key West and Saratoga Springs before heading to POFQ. Not sure if this is the traditional route.

Same here, both my trips to POFQ we went to OKW and Saratoga first. I'm trying to remember if we also went to POR this year. (I know we didn't in 2013; POFQ was the 3rd stop and I was the only person left on the bus.)

When we arrived on June 11, the bus stopped at Saratoga Springs first, then POFQ.

In March of 2012 and Aug of 2013... we stopped at OKW and SSG then FQ. It was the reverse when going back to the airport.

In the past we've always stopped at OKW and Saratoga Springs, but in October 2013 we went straight to POFQ. I felt like I hit the lottery!

Thanks all for the info on ME. I'm just going to bet on us being the 3rd stop! We are arriving pretty early on Thursday 7/31 like around 8a so hopefully it won't be too packed and we'll be on our way rather quickly. Just want to get checked in so we can be off to the parks

I've done 8 am arrivals before... last year it was for POR and I was one of 4 people on the bus. POR was the first stop.

That seems like it would be a safe bet, I always plan on being on ME for at LEAST an hour, so that way if it is less time it is a happy surprise!

We get in early too. I would love to be able to get in the room to drop off my carry on, but I know that's practically impossible! :-).

We left our carry-ons with bell services and picked them up when we got back. Left them there on checkout day, too, while we went bowling at Splitsville.

Same here, I alway estimate and hour to an hour and a half for ME. Hoping with being there so early that it'll go pretty quickly. If I'm at the resort by 930-945a I'll be very happy. As much as I would like a room ready when we get there, I am A-O-K with checking in, giving my carry ons to bell services and being on my way to the parks!

I wouldn't leave it as just an ipad. I left my laptop (in a laptop bag) with bell services at POR with no problem.
