    Does anyone have any updated photos of the bulk food items available?

    Something like what was posted recently by Josh over at Easy WDW regarding Saratoga Springs. I am trying to make my grocery list and want to be in and out as soon as possible so if there are some things I can get at the resort, I'd rather just do so.

    I am specifically looking for confirmation that they have:

    dozen (or more) of eggs
    loaves of wheat bread
    spreadable margarine
    sandwich meat
    sliced cheese
    mustard
    mayo
    cinnamon rolls
    jelly
    canned tuna
    frozen pizzas



    Examples of Saratoga Springs:

    DME is Disney's Magical Express. I don't have a DME number yet (that I know of), but I do have a Magic Band confirmation number. That is what I used to do the BOG FastPass.

    Yes, all of the Fantasia Market photos were taken one year ago.

    Very tempting, but with TiW blocked-out Christmas Eve and Day, that could get a tad pricey.

    Question about the monorail from CR to MK. To get from the MK to CR....is the monorail a 1 way loop where you have to go to Polynesian then Grand Floridian Resort ( all the way around the loop ) before getting back to the CR?

    or

    Is the Monorail 2 ways...where you can go back and forth directly from MK to CR?

    I assume...at worst, we can walk back from MK to CR....but I was just wondering.

    The resort monorail only goes in one direction, so coming back from MK, CR is the first stop. But I find walking is so much easier. No crowds and walking to the monorail from MK is almost as far as walking back to CR.

    Question about the pools. I noticed that the BLT pool has a really nice Water Slide which reminds me of the Water Slide at the DisneyLand hotel along with a Fountain Splash area for the younger kids.

    If we stay at the CR ( not the BLT ), are we able to go to the BLT pool as well?

    or

    Are those pools exclusive to guests that stay specifically at the BLT rooms?

    Only guests at BLT can use that pool.

    Guests at BLT can use their pool as well as the CR pol, but CR guests can only use the CR pool.

    The BLT pool is gated and you need a KTTW from BLT to open the gate. But they have installed a better play area at the CR pool than the time we stayed there about five or more years ago.

    Two-bedroom, theme park view. There will be seven of us. Myself, two adult sons, two daughter-in-laws, one granddaughter age 13, and one grandson age 5.
    We are from Akron, Ohio. Where are you from?
