    I see you'll be there at the same time as we will! Maybe we will see you in the lounge!

    2 more questions...

    Is there free self parking there or is it all valet? I thought both but then I just ran across a post that mentioned a CM explaining valet parking so I thought I'd better double check.

    Also, re: club level lounge offerings...are there kid friendly snacks in the afternoons and early evenings too? (Just trying to make sure CL is worth the extra $. As long as the entire family can enjoy the perks, then I'm sold!)

    I never saw uncrustable during our stay in January. The whole family loved CL, but I was a bit disappointed with the offerings from 1-3. We had homemade potatoe chips, yogurt covered pretzels, gummy beard, nuts/trail mix, and sometimes cookies.

    Thanks for the info. DH nixed the split stay idea, so it looks like we're staying out at CR instead...

    Just checked in, our room is not ready yet, but we were lucky enough to receive our first bit of pixie dust at a hotel. We were upgraded to a savannah view!!!

    Is there a link somewhere of how long it takes to get to the different parks from the resort? Are the buses pretty good or would it be quicker to drive our own car?

    Thanks for answering all of my questions. :-)

    Coming from Jambo to----> AK, is roughly 5 minutes..
    " " " to----> HS, is roughly 10 minutes..
    " " " to----> EP, is roughly 12 minutes..
    " " " to----> MK, is roughly 21 minutes..

    The best thing is that it has no extra stops... Except once we did stop at BB but that was one time on a HS bus I think...

    To be honest, this was one of the best experiences I've had with the bus system in WDW....Waay better than BWV, POR, & CBR, that's for sure..
