Hi sounds like you had a good time! We are staying in LK too in Sept! I had a few questions if you dont mind. I wanted to request a building and a floor. What would you suggest? We have 3 little children an 8, 5, & 8 mos old so are concerned about the walk to buses and stuff. Especially at the end of a long day when they are asleep lol! Wasnt sure your opininon on which floor was most convenient and quiet? Both LK buildings would be equally close to the bus stop. I would DEFINITELY request ground floor. In terms of quiet, request facing the lake, which would put you in building 6. I know you said buses were good but I was wondering how long you waited and then how long it took to get to MK? The waits weren't particularly long. If you miss a bus, obviously you may have to wait a bit, but I generally found that a bus would arrive within 5-10 minutes of getting to the bus stop and sometimes it would be there already. Obviously it's possible that you may wait longer due to scheduling issues, it's public transport. But buses are frequent. When leaving the parks, keep in mind that you can also take Pop buses. One day, we were leaving the park mid-day and JUST missed a bus. We saw it pull away. At mid-day buses are less freuqent. 3 minutes later a Pop bus pulled into the next bus stop so we took that one instead. It's an easy walk from Pop to AoA. We were originally planning on staying at the CR so our ADRs were earlier I switched most of them but my DD BBB appt is at 830? Couldnt switch it! Really hoping we can make it! Thanks for all your help! I would find it very tough to get to an 8:30 ADR from any resort. I would suggest being at the bus stop before 8 so that you have a cushion for catching the bus, getting through the turnstiles, and getting to BBB. My suggestion would be for you and your DD to go to the BBB appt and maybe have your DH be responsible for getting the other kids to the park on his own. It just takes me forever to get the kids ready and my kids aren't morning people. On our first MK day, I really tried to make RD and we got to the bus stop at about 8:35 and pulled into MK at around 8:57. We did not quite make RD due to the long lines at bag check and the turnstiles. MK is definitely the longest trip from AoA. I never tried to make RD at any other time because for my family, it's just too stressful to try to get out that early.
