Awesome advice guys/gals. Thank you!
For the Century Park/Century Ave properties, the Maglev isn't a bad way to go.

Note the following:
-your luggage should be manageable on the Maglev, but difficult to swing (comfortably) on the subway if you choose to use it for the last mile
-Longyang Road Station is notorious for its taxi touts, who are adept at scamming locals, let alone tourists
-for this reason, I usually advise people in your shoes to either do the Maglev/subway combo, or else only take the Maglev TO PVG (taxi from there)
-once is enough to get the picture
-check the schedule to confirm when it is running at top speed (not so may trains any more)
