The fastest way to the bus stop was following the sidewalk around the outside of the resort near the parking lot. There were rarely people walking there, so it was pretty easy to zip down to the busses.
We just got back Sat (also FD in LM rooms) and stayed in building #9- King Triton building. I agree it did feel long the 1st time and maybe the last morning checking out because we didn't want to leave - lol. Walking the sidewalk to the bus was the best tip I read before leaving. The rooms are gorgeous and we loved the pool! Definitely worth the walk to the front for my 2 dgd's to be able to stay with Ariel.

Ordering from Walmart.com

Hello my buddies!! Question for you all.....I'm trying to see if I can order groceries for our trip and Wal-Mart is saying "we don't deliver to that zip code yet"...HUH???!!! I know some of you have had packages sent to your resorts. What am I doing wrong. It is under "Wal-mart to Go" isn't it?

I am looking forward to the groceries answer. I want to have food delivered too.
Glad to hear that the LM rooms at AoA aren't really that far away and ppl have found them to be a good experience. We are hoping for the April/May discount to include them.
In an effort toward full disclosure: I am spending too much time here and looking for info online. I have found lot of cool info, most recently maps of POP and AoA. Plus more info on other resorts we can't afford to stay at but would love to see.
And here's the rub - I need to finish knitting a baby blanket, hat and booties for a friend who's shower is on the 14th, and I have to mail the gift to her as it's too far away to attend in person. Oh this Disney planning addiction!!! how do I manage life and planning? Must control urges to google, must control urges to call distant cousin who does WDW every year and is mailing 2 books of info to Mom. Must get kids breakfast, get off this thread and get to work....Oh, I have to get dressed too. 45 mins to work...wish it was a train commute and I could google on my phone but I drive.
No one else in my life would understand this conflict. Thanks for reading

I had to see what Wal-Mart to Go was! Just the regular Wal-Mart website has bottled water, cereal, granola bars... Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that is what most people use. We have also used Amazon.com or Soap.com. We usually use Soap.com. It is s a little more $$, but if you spend a certain amount, you get free 2 day shipping which makes it easy to decide when to place your order, etc.

I'm so excited to be subbing in to this thread! We will be staying at POP from August 24th through August 30! What do you all think the chances of free dining in late August are?

My husband and I officially booked our Aug. extravaganza! I almost feel like, with out the ability to go on the Disney website and see that i'm booked, it's not really happening. I need to have that little thrill every week when I pop onto the web and sign in. Disney asks me how I booked and I type "directly through Walt Disney" and then the confirmation number. As Tinkerbell flutters on my screen my heart skips a beat as the number of days until I get to be a kid again pops up on my screen. It's a little silly to some people I know, but somehow, all the stuff that makes life so hard gets a little easier just knowing that the happiest and most magical place on earth is there, waiting for you. From visit to visit things are changing and getting added but one stop by the Dole whip stand or a relaxing trip on the people mover and it almost feels like there was no space between visits. In a world with so much anger and fear, so much trouble and strife, it is a blessing to have a place where the troubles of this world seem, just a little farther away and that, for a time, dreams really can come true.
