    I vote for the second option!

    This is my dream resort to stay at. Last time we stopped by for dinner at the buffet place, cant' think of the name and just walked around. More than anything I want to go back and stay there but with 5 to a room is that possible?

    We have been staying at Port Orleans riverside with the trundle bed.

    My wife and i stayed at ALK on our honeymoon, it was a really cool place to spend a few night. Lots to do and see, personally i liked sitting at the viewing points watching the animals

    We've stayed at AKL twice & enjoyed it very much both times. I find the CMs here to be particularly sweet & helpful. There are so many kids activities if you have children so be sure to check into that. We enjoyed the food court very much & Boma's for breakfast is a must for us almost every trip! The lobby & rooms are dark, sort of like the WL but you get used to it. And they are just so beautiful! I love how the rooms are decorated.
    A lot complain about the distance to MK but I really didn't notice it during either trip. Once I'm on a bus & as long as my tushy has a seat then I'm happy. It just didnt' seem like it took any longer to me. The busses normally were not crowded either & I liked that BUT I haven't been since all the new Villa rooms have opened. That could change the situation unless they add more busses or have seperate ror the Villas from the regular rooms.
    I really can't think of any complaints.

    I'm the same. I really don't notice the distance between the resort and any given park. I mean, seriously what does it matter! It's not like most people haven't already traveled a great distance to get there!

    I've been to Kidani Village and didn't mind the bus situation, but that is because any time we were on the bus it went to Kidani first. :D :D

    Ummmm...I honestly can't remember! We went during the Food and Wine Festival... I don't recall standing, and I don't recall having anyone standing in front of me, so I'm going to say no-everyone was seated.

    Isn't that awful?! Better get me some gingko biloba in my stocking!

    They were standing room coming back from MK/EPCOT after the fireworks and going to the parks at busy times.

    Far busier with kidani than before that's for sure. (enough to bug me)
