This is great info will be going to WDW in January for the first time. Hope you have a fun trip.
During the 3 separate times I've been there, we've stayed both on and off property. I still prefer staying on property because of the Disney hospitality. We've stayed at both Port Orleans Riverside and Coronado Springs. Of the two, we still prefer POR because of its location, near Epcot and HS, and of the quiet atmosphere. Also, the restaurant at the POR is great and is really underrated (they serve prime rib on their menu). On all three trips, we also rented a car. Since CMs get free parking, it didn't take us long to get to the lots, maybe 20 minutes max. I've never experienced the bus system, so I can't answer that. But if you don't want to pay for parking, there's way to get around it. Park hopping is a lot more time consuming than DL/DCA because the parks are so much far apart. For us, we usually took a break between parks. For example, we went to Epcot from their park open to lunch, went back to the hotel to rest, and then went to MK to eat dinner and see the Electrical Parade. But there's ways to park hop without moving your car, like taking the monorails from MK to Epcot by the TTC. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to DM me. :) - BaseballMickey_CM 6086.1 #13 4-27-14 11:23PMLike(3)Reply
We stayed at the animal kingdom lodge in February which isn't very close to any of the parks except for animal kingdom and we took the bus everywhere. The buses were usually on time every 15-20 minutes and really great. However, there were a couple of times it was late or so packed we had to wait for the next one. This didn't bother us but I saw other people getting very upset. I hink it's a bit silly but some people expect things to be a certain way. If you want full control of how and when you get around I recommend a car. But I would always use the bus- I loved chatting with the drivers and other guests on the way in! - LittleMermaidLover 286.0 #889 4-28-14 10:34AMLike(1)Reply
I've gone to WDW a ton of times and I really enjoying staying on property. I've stayed at moderates and values. I really like Pop Century. The bus system is great and it doesn't bother me to wait but can be frustrating for families with tried children when everyone is trying to get back to the hotel. I've rented a car too and for those that stay on property you get free parking at the resorts with the parking pass you get. If you show the pass at the theme park gates when you pull up you can park there for free. I do like taking the car because you are able to explore the other resorts easily and enjoy all that disney properties have to offer. Also staying on property can get you into the parks early (1-2 hours) and can also allow you to stay after the park closes for 1-3 hours. Check the calendars to see which parks have early hours/late hours but almost every day something is open early and another stays open late. Another benefit to renting a car is that you can go to the store to get snacks and food for the hotel and parks. Plus Florida has Disney outlets! - princess77345 9.0 #9912 4-28-14 3:49PMLikeReply

So this is how Trivilator works... I got paired up with #1. Lolabell4 for my first random game and she kicked my butt... I have a couple other random games, but the people never view the results of question 1 and one hasn't answered the 1st question. I started them last Wednesday. Is there a way to remove those games, since it doesn't look like they are playing?? - zenderella 408.7 #466 2-17-14 11:27AMLikeReply
Its really ironic that chris post QC like this all the time and yet he hasn't even touched 2250 yet. Chris doesn't post stuff like this for the points nor does he care. It would just be nice to see him get the credit he deserves. - vincentchase1 672.8 #247 3-4-13 11:45PMLike(24)Reply
"A day at the Disneyland Resort" Disney Memories project, done by my brother. This was shot over a DLR trip with my cousin and his family who just got APs. It's really well done and IMO better than most of the Disney commercials on tv. He wanted me to share the video here, hope you guys enjoy! - chris. 2510.4 #41 3-4-13 12:19AMLike(9)Reply
