    Wendy, is this 2014 as the actual post says or is it 2015 as the title says? Curious, because we take grand kids in 2015.

    Instead of coming in from the west on Buena Vista Drive to DTD you might want to consider coming in the other direction via Disney Vacation Club Way to Buena Vista Drive from the North.

    Buses will have an easier time since their entrance is on the north/south portion of Lake Buena Vista Drive away from the construction. The places that will be impacted the most will be the bus stops over by Pleasure Island and traffic getting to and from Typhoon Lagoon.
