If you want to be assured of being closest to the buses, then your best bet is going to be to book a preferred room. Preferred rooms are in the front sections of the 50's, 60's and 70's closest to Classic Hall. You can get standard rooms that are fairly close to the buses too BUT it is not going to be a guarantee. That said, POP is really pretty good about trying to meet people's requests but it will also depend on how busy the resort is and what is available on your checkin day. So if it is ABSOLUTELY 100% critcal, then I would suggest going with a preferred room. The other option is book preferred and then when you check in see what is available in standard. I think it is easier to downgrade...IMO. because if you don't like what's available in standard, you just stay put! just my. .02 Good Luck!
