    Sorry for the value villa confusion!! I guess because the fifth floor does not overhang the others below it looks as if those have one floor less... :blush:

    The confusion is understandable! :hug: It certainly doesn't help matters when the CMs are giving out misinformation! :headache:

    Yup, busses start running about an hour before park opening. You should be fine if you are there by 7:15p.

    Anytime we've had an early ADR @ Crystal Palace we have found CMs to be pretty flexible. They know people are relying on early busses & getting through the gates around the folks queued up for rope drop. If you are a few minutes early/late they will do their best to accomodate you.

    Thank you for asking about breakfast buses!!! We have two 8 am breakfasts, and an early epcot tour.

    I hadn't gotten the chance to Google bus times, and AKL makes me nervous being so far out.

    AKL is far out there, but we found the buses to be really good. The AKL bus stops at only Kiandi and Jambo and then off to your destination.

    We found the buses at YC to be much, much worse. As the bus stops at all the EPCOT resorts and then off to the destination. We used a cab several times during our YC stay, never had to use one prior.

    We just planned on taking about 45-60 min to get from AKL to anywhere but AK. We were always early, but I don't mind being early.
