You may have to look to see what's available and the best deal. Over the summer Walmart stopped shipping water around WDW. It looks like they will ship again, but you're paying much more for the water plus shipping. (or free shipping if you make a $50 purchase). For example, the same water that will cost you around $4.00 in store, costs $10.88 online before shipping.

I don't know what time they start. However last year DH & I caught one around 8:30am and got to DTD shortly before WPE openned at 9:00.

No runners as yet, apparently some are on order and will be arriving early December. Currently just plain white hospital look.

Not as far as I know, I don't think any have stopped completely, but some are trialling giving out bands only to some guests.

A King room will give you extra room, but I think an evc would fit in a regular room.
