Sorry if these have been answered somewhere before. This is the first time that when we arrive at Disney, we are not going straight to the parks ... instead we are having our first day as a do nothing but the pool and downtown Disney. We have Maya Grill booked for dinner but was just hoping to eat by the pool either at the little place there or carry a pizza takeout. Thanks for the help!
We just went and used QS for pizza on our last night. 1 QS for the small pizza or 2 QS for the large pizza. It was actually very good and I am not a pizza eater at all.

Downtown Disney buses go in this order of bus stops
1 - El Centro
2 - Casitas
3 - Ranchos
4 - Cabanas

So in my case, the Cabanas stop will be a bit faster to get on a bus than the El Centro for the parks. I thought El Centro would be the first stop, but obviously not!
We just left and Bus Stop #2 was always picked up first, then #3, then #4 then #1. The one time the bus picked up #1 first the bus bottomed out and they had to switch people to a new bus. We think it had something to do with weight capacity and speed bumps that's why #1 is picked up last.

This is correct. We were there a few weeks back and the buses always ran this way

We did it for dinner but I would think you could for lunch. When you go in to Pepper Market go all the way to the back near the kids section and ask the lady. She will know. All of the servers told me exactly what I could do and it helped alot

That's what I thought because lunch and breakfast does not offer to go any more.

There's no way I could have kept this secret. I would have had to go into counseling just to have a safe place to talk about it!

This may sound like a silly question, but does the it says the shop sells 'essentials' would this include tea bags, sugar, milk?

We won't have a car and don't need enough to be worth a garden grocer order :/

Or at milk and sugar provided with the coffee machine?

Luckily, our oldest son is going so we text about it all the time, and our best friends who live in Naples are going too and we talk everyday. But these last 9 days it gets harder and harder.

Two weeks to go and we will be back at CSR! Can't wait. I've been keeping it a secret from the kids. We plan to tell them the day before we leave. The suspense is killing me.

KatMark... Have a great trip. Thanks to all for the great information.
