We are here now and Mickey is squirting water. Also, my room has H2o shampoo/conditioner and soap. I believe it's called blushing citrus or something, not sure of scent because I am doing laundry right now

Sounds like they changed the packaging...To bad they didn't get rid of the combo.....As a hairdresser i cringe when I see those combos...you can't clean hair and condition at the same time...it has to be two separate things.

Under Transportation it says; "You catch the bus at the bus stops in front of Cinema hall. Simply look for the sign with your destination on it and get in line. Warning: There are no shade covers or queue ropes at the All Stars."

But in a lot of photos being posted I'm seeing a line queue using chains, even on the WaltDisneyWorld.com website I'm seeing this. Which one is right?

Both are right. You get in line in the chain queue for the bus stop you want.
If you want MK, you get in that line. All the values are like that.

When I was there in March there were chain ropes to keep the lines somewhat organized. Nothing special and of course my kids wanted to hang on them -- that is why I remember them lol

the buses can be insanely crowded at all resorts including deluxe. The fill them up to standing room only and go. it depends on the time of day. Early morning and closing time is the worst.
Fridges should be in all the rooms now.
Not sure what kind of example you are looking for?

Question

We have never really paid attention to how long it takes to get to each park. How long will it take us to get to DHS? We just want to be at the park alittle before 7:30am.
Thanks!

My family and I just got back from a stay at ASMo and I really enjoyed it! I will have to say though, that I still prefer Pop Century. I guess because it was my first, it is my favorite. I really enjoyed the vibe there better.

We found that we only had to share busses with the other 2 resorts twice. Both were during the early afternoon when we decided to take a break. We had to stand about half the time (mainly coming back to the resort) I think we timed going to the parks just right each time. The longest we waited on a bus was about 20 minutes (again, during an off-time)

We had a pretty good location (Fantasia, building 8, second floor, facing pool area) It was far enough away from the pool so that it wasn't loud, but the walk to the food court wasn't bad.

I liked that the bus stops at the parks were closer to the entrance than the ones for Pop Century though! That's a long walk at the end of the day when you're tired!!

I preferred the food court of Pop Century better, my main complaint was the breakfast. The breakfast potatoes were not cooked enough for my liking, but we enjoyed the one dinner that we ate there. I was really impressed with the lifeguards at the Fantasia pool. I sat and watched them for a while. They were almost constantly counting the kids in the pool and I even saw one lifeguard jump in the pool after a little boy. I don't really know what happened to him, but she lifted him out of the pool and another boy and girl that were with him got out and stood with him until they found the parents. I really enjoyed watching some of the activities they did at the pools also.

The rooms were clean and I really enjoyed the refrigerator. It was nice having the free wi-fi but it was SO SLOW most of the time and kept kicking me off! I got up early each morning to upload pictures though.

Question

Does anyone have pics of the food/drinks available at the ASMo GIFT SHOP?

Specifically I'm curious about bottled water, any diet drinks withOUT caffeine, and what libations they might sell. I'm wondering if you can buy a small bottle of rum for dh & I to enjoy rum & caffeine free cokes after the kiddlies are inbed.

We will be taking DME so stopping at a grocery store isn't an option for us. TIA
