Fairly new to the Dis, but have been reading through a lot of threads over the last 2 months or so. 44 days until my next trip, and I'm so excited I can't see straight! Yes, I have 6 kids (DD15, DD10, DD6, DS5 (twins) and DD2), but even though Its been nearly 7 years since my last trip (4 of my kids have never been), I will be traveling with my childhood BFF (we have known each other since we were 5) celebrating my 40th birthday. I have stayed at CRS twice before and LOVED it both times. It's my BFF's favorite mod as well. Looking forward to EVERYTHING including free dining (first for me), enjoying the F&WF (not pregnant like I was last time), possibly using MB, and just relaxing for nearly 6 whole days. We can enjoy shopping around leisurely without worrying who is touching what, and can go where we want without a headcount... Hoping for Cabanas, which is what I requested, but will be happy anywhere- I'LL BE AT DISNEY. Thank you all for your posts and info!

Really? That would be so awesome for FP+!!! We are staying at POR (room only) at the end of our trip and have the MB/FP+ for those 2 nights/3 days, but staying at CSR with FD for the first 6 nights. We will have to check this out!

Trying to understand. Are you going with the 6 kids and BFF or just you and BFF? Sounds like just BFF since you won't need to do a headcount and can shop. LOL And if that is the case, I totally get why you are excited!
Have a great time! I'm sure you will.

Can someone tell me about corner rooms (with two windows?) at CSR? Are there any? I'd like to book a King bed room; are any of these corners? Is there a site with floor plans of the buildings at CSR?

Thanks!

CSR has them. My wife and I had one the first year we stayed. Wasn't a king though. Can't help with a floor plan.

Also, does anyone know what the average price upgrade for a Preferred Room is over a Standard Room is, per night? Just a guesstimate is needed.

I am trying to help a co-worker plan a trip for next year, and any dates we try online says that nothing is available in the preferred room category. Just Business class.

Question Grocery Shopping via Taxi

Does anyone know how much it costs to take a taxi from CSR to the nearest grocery store, Target, or Walmart? I'm not sure if I want to order from Garden Grocer or try to go to a store myself.

Thank you,
Shelli

Hi Fantaluminishes! May I ask what the concierge had to do to help? Thanks and enjoy your trip!!
