[QUOTE=Soundgod;1097464]But remember, currently, Pop has 3000 rooms and AoA was originally also configured with 3000 rooms. That’s 6000 total, which compares with the three All Stars which each have 2000, or 6000 total.
Something to keep in mind about PO is that combined, there are 3000 rooms. 2000 for Riverside and 1000 for FQ. CSR and CBR also have 2000 rooms and 4 stops each.
And just because you’re staying at a deluxe resort, that doesn’t mean you’ve got a bus all to yourself either.
WL/VWL and FW share most buses. There are a route or two that WL shares with GF. Poly and Contempo share and sometimes it’s Poly, Contempo/BLT, and GF.
And of course, much of the year, the Epcot 5 share all their buses.[/QUOTE]
I never could understand why they do this. Since GF and Poly are right next door, and WL and CR are closer to each other than they are to the other 2 wouldn’t it seem more logical that when they share it would be GF/Poly and WL/CR buses? I’m sure there’s a reason they do what they do, I just don’t know what it is.
I think you hit it right with the numbers. To me the fact that Pop doesn’t share buses wouldn’t have any effect on my choice to stay there since accomodating soon to be 6,000 is the same either way you look at it (IF Pop & AoA share). I’ve stayed at ASMu when the bus filled from Sports and only 1/2 of Music so they dispatched another for the rest of Music and finished off at Movies. At park closing it was resort specific, no sharing. I think the same thing will happen if it were all Pop and AoA.
Honestly though I think a lot is going to depend on occupancy regardless of where you stay that will determine time spent waiting and on the buses.
I’ve never stayed there but I think CBR is the one with most stops rather than PO’s.
And being a family of 4, unless you want the extra space I don’t see where you’d need a suite as recommended. A regular room would work just fine.
