I’m just worried that if it is last them there will not be any seats left….standing for 20 mins on the bus is not a great way to start a long day at the park.

5~ How far of a walk is it to the McDonalds? And what hours are they open?

6~ Are there connecting rooms with both rooms having two double beds or is it all one room king bed and one room two double beds?

7~What is Grads night?

8~ Does anyone have any pictures of Mighty Ducks? My nephew is very excited about staying at this hotel and would love to see more pictures.
I'll try to answer what I can.
(1) I'm pretty sure there were ropes.

(2) You'ld have to take a bus to somewhere (DTD or late open park) and then take a bus from there back to ASMo. Maybe you could get a taxi?

(3) I think e ticket nights have been replaced with late Extra Magic hours at night.

(4) I was at ASMo the last week of Aug and it was very quiet but I don't remember ever standing to the parks and I do remember busses for just ASMo on the way home but also remember even those were crowded at day's end. One night the line was shorter at the ASMu bus so we took that. That would be real convenient for you if you get Mighty Ducks because you'd be real close to ASMu.

(5) Didn't try it. Heard it was dangerous. There is a McDonalds at DTD that you can bus to. I thought the food court was pretty good too.

(6) I had connecting rooms with both double beds.

(7) Those are nights when MK closes early for grads which have to buy tickets.

(8) Sorry-we took lots of photos on the last day but my DS was running around and fell on the wet cement and banged his head so we didn't make it to Mighty Ducks.

I just called. No queue ropes

Boat or bus to MK then transfer. DTD is available but a worse option.

3~ what is an e-ride night ticket?
Resort guests used to be able to buy a hard ticket after hours experience on select rides. It was known as E-Rides night. They did away with it, then they added evening EMH.

ASMo is last when they run a consolidated routing.

It is past ASMu and ASSp. maybe a mile? it is just outside the gate to the AllStars. Don't know the hours.

Those rooms that do have king beds connect with a room with double beds. Every connecting room set has at least one room with double beds.

Hard ticket late night parties for graduating seniors

Stephen, any updates on the renovations to the rooms and pool??
I just started to read about this today so it is all new to me. I wasn't aware that the pool was closed and the rooms in TS had renovations planned.
Just when I thought I had the resort thing done, was busy doing my tour plans and now I read about this....Help Stephen, LOL!!!

We are planning our next trip in June 2007. My 5 yr old DS wants to stay at ASMO next year. Any opinions about ASMO during the second week of June? I am a little concern about the heat(Looks like no shade at ASMO)while waiting for the buses. Even tho we are morning park visitors. We are familiar staying at the value resorts. We stayed at POP last April and loved it.

Been there done that twice with a total of 70 people. We love ASMo. The bus stops do NOT have a cover, but in the AM, that is no big deal.

There were queues for the busses when we were there in 2004, I remember my DS running around the "maze" as he called it, and l can see them in my picture of the bus stop.

Did everyone get the news that Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians, AND Fantasia are now "Preferred" and cost $12 a night extra?

Only Love Bug and Mighty Ducks are "Standard". So now there are 1,152 Preferred and only 768 "Standard" rooms.

Boooooo, Hissssss...

The moderates are looking better and better, lol.
I wish the kids didn't have their hearts set on ASMo otherwise I'd go with a Moderate Resort.

On the plus side, my littlest DD absolutely ADORES Herbie the Love Bug. She'd be thrilled if we were assigned to that building.
