I usually plan extra time for the buses from the park to the resort too. I also like to go to the closest park to the resort so I can make the most of my day. One time I had just over 2 hours at AK and was staying at AKL so only a 5 min bus ride. I figured 40 minutes for the bus ride back in case I missed the bus would give me plenty of time. Little did I know I would get trapped on the Safari!! The animals were in the road and would not move! They had to get handlers out to physically move them! Needless to say, in my 2 hours, I only did one thing and headed straight back to the hotel!
I usually tip the bell service people for holding my bags for me on check out day. Not sure how other people do it, but I only tip them when I pick the bags up since the same people are there when I drop off as when I pick up.
We also allow 2 hours to get from the park back to the resort. During our last trip in May, it took 45 minutes for a bus to arrive to take us from MK to SSR. Granted, buses usually arrive every 20 minutes, but sometimes they don't. This is the second time this has happened to us on our departure day.
Luckily for us, bell services was great about retrieving our carry ons quickly so we could hop on the DME bus.
