Opinions on resort bus transportation..

Okay guys. Just for giggles, can we discuss the buses at our various resorts? I'm going to add a poll to get things going. Have at it...try to stay civil!!!

Due to being restricted to just 12 choices, I have lumped some resorts together...but Disney does that too, so it should work out fine.
I am going to do another poll for the 'worst' system.

One thing that CSR has going for it is that it is such a popular convention resort. That means many people staying there don't use the park buses! So you don't feel as packed in as you do at most other resorts. Secondly in my experiences the buses came on a fairly frequent basis. We never had much of a wait.

Pop/AoA because: each has its own buses, bus pickup area is pretty centrally located, and there are actual lines for waiting. None of the "last-minute arrivals jumping ahead of those waiting a 'long'-time.
OKW because it's OKW and everything they do is perfect .

We've stayed at nearly all of the resorts and, from my personal experience, Pop has the best bus service. I'm one of those people who actually set a timer to see how long the wait is for a bus (both starting at the resort and at the park). It is rare that we wait more than 13 minutes (yup, that's the high number) and typically it is less than 7 minutes. Then, the ride back is great because there is only one stop -- none of the 4 drop offs once you get back like at POR, CBR, CSR and the multiple stops like on the Swan, Dolphin, YC, BC, BWI routes.

The other thing I like at Pop is that there is a queuing area for the busses so people know in what order people arrived to catch the bus. Especially at the moderate resorts, I get frustrated with people who arrive well after others who have been waiting and then the late-comers push their way to be among the first to board. Just rude. (I throw that in to the general "logistics" part of the bus service.)

We had the exact opposite experience. We have stayed here twice and both times the busses have been ridiculous. Hour waits, with hundreds of people milling around. We actually asked them to move us to another resort b/c of it. There was no availability anywhere, so they upgraded us to a suite near stop 1. It was still BAD but at least there weren't as many people waiting there (as at 3 and 4). Waits were close to 25 minutes still..

Best service we have had - Pop, hands down. With AKL and CBR coming in tied for 2nd.
