    Hi! I thought I saw a post saying there was a bus going directly to Downtown Disney? I've read soo many different threads...I've confused myself :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Can someone give me info on getting to DD? Any suggestions on what to see/do there would be great too!

    MANY Thanks!

    An interesting side note about them adding king rooms. Last Feb. I stayed in 9625 with a friend (two doubles). This Feb. I stayed in the SAME ROOM with my DH. The renovated room was a King. Kind of freaky that it was the same room though :goodvibes .

    Oh....I don't know if I'm the leader, but I will certainly continue to answer questions and add things as I find them out.

    That is so weird that you got the same room! :cool2:

    Yes there is a bus that goes directly to DTD. It takes quite a while though and during the day stops at Typhoon Lagoon first.

    This is really encouraging, thank you for posting! I was getting worried that my MIL and FIL weren't going to be happy with their food options this trip. We're getting the QSDP for one room but not for theirs. They don't eat enough. Anyway, should she just ask at one of the food counters for a vegetarian meal? She's a little hard of hearing, so I'll probably have to help her.

    Ooh, two of my kids will be first timers. Do we mention that at check-in? They would think buttons were cool.

    We stayed here last July for our one year wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a Junior Suite. The resort is beautiful, but even better was the staff!!! We not only received a complimentary upgrade, but the manager (Roger Ploum?) sent us a gift basket full of goodies to our room as well!! They were amazing people! I have lots of pictures of the junior suite which I can add if anyone is interested :) The only downside is that we were there during a dance convention and the place was CRAZY crowded during the times between competitions.

    First, congrats on the upgrade. We were upgraded to a junior suite in September for our 25th wedding anniversary and received a bouquet of flowers and other goodies.

    Would love to see pictures...even though the rooms will all look different later this year.

    The last I heard they've moved away from the Casitas and are working on the Ranchos (6A--which is almost complete). The only portion of Casitas done thus far is the 4th floor of Casitas 1, 2 and 3.

    I'm so glad to know they are renovating the rooms! While we were there we commented on how outdated & somewhat dirty they were. I will try to post my pictures this weekend.

    For those who weren't as blessed as KatMark and I, the junior suites are basically just 2 connected rooms. One is a normal room and the second is a room with a murphy bed, wicker (uncomfortable!) patio chairs, a desk and desk chair, and a 2nd armoire and tv (and of course the second bathroom.)

    Be sure to go up to the resort photos thread for the CSR and you will see what the new rooms look like. They are stunning...and we can't wait to try them in September when we are back with our bounceback for free dining. Oh, and I liked the wicker chair...I was very comfy in it. :-)
