Wow! Amazing photos! Thanks so much for posting. Problem is, now I miss my home! Our last stay was in Nov 2008 - Grand Villa (which was AWESOME!). We stayed at BCV in Feb. and will stay at AKV in Nov. My kids made me promise that "after that, we can go back to Saratoga Springs right!?!?!" Answer: YES! I am looking forward to trying something new...but I do love our SSR and look forward to coming home again!!

Thanks for all the pics everyone!

We are staying in a dedicated two bedroom in Dec.

Does anyone have a preferred location that we should request?

Everyone's got their favorites for different reasons. Some like to be by the main pool/building for access to that...so go with Springs section. Some like uber quiet and the first bus stop...so go with Grandstand section. Some like close walking access to Downtown Disney...so go with Congress Park section. I don't usually hear of any special request reasons to get the Springs or Paddock sections - not that there's anything wrong with them...Paddock's 65-68 building is a good backup choice if you like Congress Park for the Downtown Disney access but couldn't get in.

My personal favorite is Congress Park, building 1. It's the closest for walking to Downtown Disney/Marketplace...and I like walking over to the bus stop at Marketplace and grabbing busses to other resorts.

We stayed at SSR in a 2BR villa and THV (and BC) on our most recent trip, and THV definitely felt like its own resort to us. We did pick up packages and swim over at SSR proper a couple times, but we stayed in the THV area most of the time. It was wonderful!! Our villa was right on the water, and the kids LOVED waving at the boats as they passed.

Just for good measure, here are some pics from our stay at SSR...

Aso love the pics. Especially the perky-look-in-the-mirror one.

Did make me go "what's up with the different bedspreads in the different rooms", though. But that might have to do with the fact that I find the flowered ones a lot nicer.

Can't wait to finally get to check out our 2-BR next september.

Any pics of one-bedroom villas please?

We are thinking of upgrading from a studio to a one-bedroom villa (if they have any available) and would love to see some pics of the one-bedroom villas if anyone has any please, or can point me towards some.
Thank you.

Thanks! I find that I usually can't wipe the goofy grin off my face while at Disney. I thought maybe they wanted the master bedroom more "grown-up."

Definitely my idea of camping. Probably won't find this girl in a tent at FW.
