PostSubject: First trip other than an overnight trip last year.   Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:41 pm

Hi, glad that I found this site. Looking forward to learning a lot from all the pros. We are in the early stages of planning a 10 day trip. It was going to be be in Oct. 2013. However, it has now been pushed to Feb. 2014. We have a four year son and will be staying 10 days. The game plan a one day in a park every other day. We are major foodies and planning on doing the Deluxe dinning plan. With the numbers I have crunched will save a couple hundred dollars even if we have to pay full price for the plan. Hoping for free dining and just pay for an upgrade. We will not be eating at the CSR. We will be doing early dining in the parks at 8:00am. Would it be best for us to drive to the parks each day. Also is there a building that is close to The Dig and parking? We will be driving down from WV. I'm thinking that we will not be using Disney buses because of dining at other Resorts and early morning breakfast. Any and all info on the CSR and Disney would would be greatly appreciated. My husband thinks that I'm crazy for all the time I'm spending on this trip. I spent so much time on a one night trip last Feb. that I feel like I will not be ready if I don't start now. We stayed at the POP for our trip and my husband felt that it was just to cheesy. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

I'm thinking maybe 8A or 8B???

welcome #2 to the CSR Forum!

Cabana 8a is the closest building to the main pool area and parking. Then Cabana 8b and rancho 7b. If driving everywhere, even rancho 6a is semi close to the pool. Parking is not an issue really for any building because of the way the resort is set up.

I never drive to the park but some guests swear by it. It is good to have a car to drive to other resorts because there is not easy way to get to them other than going to a park and switching buses. Magic Kingdom is really the only park that it is not recommended to drive because you don't park at the park. You have to take the monorail or boat from the parking area.

CSR has very good transportation and is centrally located next to the parks. MK is the longest ride and 10 - 15 mins.

Planning for the your trip is half the fun.

We've done both driving and buses from CSR. In Feb., even holiday weekends, it won't be as busy as summer, and not as hot, so buses wouldn't be a big issue. We were in cabanas 8A last time and agree- it's very close to dig site and parking and bus stop.
We were die hard drivers our first four trips (stayed at values) and never thought WDW transport could be as good, until my DH had ankle surgery and we had to get a scooter for our first CSR trip. We found it way easier to use the buses, and more efficient, so last trip we almost soley used them. If you make sure the buses are running when you are headed to bf, even at resorts, you can transfer from CSR to a park to another resort bus or monorail or boat. The only issue we had was going to Wilderness Lodge for bf one morning, but that was because there was a car accident that our bus (and it would have been our car too had we been driving) had to wait on, so we were a bit late.
The good thing is that staying at the resort you do get free parking. Our other frame of mind when our kids were younger like yours is that we could leave things in the car and not have to lug them around all day or get a locker, but they'd be there if one of us needed to go get them. You may decide to drive to the resort to eat, come back to your room to "freshen up" and jump on a bus to the parks or wherever you're going for the day. So many choices... good luck with planning- it is half the fun!
