I quite liked that it was a bit different to other resorts and didn't feel like overly Disney as it was also a convention center as the Disney bubble at the parks etc can drive you mad at times.

We have been quite fortunate with conventions not really affecting us too much as managed to time the food court well and also buses either got on at Casitas or Rancho's , not looking forward to that this year as we are in the Gran Destino so last stop on the Bus route round the resort.
Iím sure you will have a great time and like I said the hotel and in particular the new tower are stunning. Really beautifully decorated on the inside with amazing views. I had an amazing two weeks, I just preferred the atmosphere in hotels like animal kingdom lodge where Iíd stayed previously.

In regards to the buses we were stop 2 so picked up first but then had to drive around the other 3 stops before heading to the park. For Epcot and Hollywood studios journeys we spent longer driving around the resort to the other bus stops than the actual journey to the park took. However we were dropped off first when coming back. Youíll be the other way around so advantaged to both. In the first week the buses were busy but always came quickly and usually within 20 minutes. The second week the tower has opened and its mid July so naturally busier but the wait time for buses jumped up and on a couple of occasions, particularly early morning the bus didnít even go to stops 3 and 1 because it was already full. Hopefully just teething problems and they start to run more buses.
