Hey all!


Heading back to SSR late this week after not staying there for years. I'm hoping to get something in Congress Park or The Grandstand just to be near the main building. Anyway, what renovations are happening right now? I saw a previous post mention it, but wasn't sure where this was happening.

Thanks! Im going to request to be in one of the two buildings on either side of the bridge! fingers crossed~

I am thinking of visiting a water park during our stay in April. We will not have a car, and solely using Disney transportation.
How hard will it be to get to Bilizzard Beach?
Would Typhoon Lagoon be any easier since it is closer?

Thank you!

Extremely easy as you'll simply get on the bus to blizzard beach. It shares a bus with animal kingdom. just make sure to bring towels.

Here at SSR right now and lucked out to get one of the newly renovated rooms! It's really nice, and I love the little motifs of Disney horses and the Fox and the Hound. The only complaint I do have is that anyone who is given a room in The Paddock section should be driven over by Bell Services. This was not something mentioned during check-in, and this section really is a large distance from Carriage House. It was not easy to find my building, and I've stayed at this resort a few times before. Thank goodness I used ME for my luggage. I can't imagine lugging it all the way over here. I think Disney should really consider this moving forward.

I was hoping with the refurb that the king bed would get a bedside table by both sides. Every year DW and I get more inventive of how to fit a small platform or such like to place a cup of water on the side that does not have the telephone table. So far the upside down trash can seems to be the best option!

There is a desk on the other side of the bed in the 1and 2 bedrooms. Are you talking about a studio?

Yes we only have enough points for a studio. Its just the two of us anyway and we have an accessible room. But I think its the same for all studios at SSR.

You do get driven over by bell services. You do need to go to bell services and ask them though. I can't believe you walked over there!

Hmm, that's interesting. I didn't know the studios were setup like that. That would be annoying.

Yes it is! We both take medication in the morning with water so we like to keep it by the bed! Don't know if other dvc property studios are like that. The hotel rooms aren't. We are staying at AKV in May in a studio so will find out! Apart from that small niggle we love SSR. Its our home resort.

We stayed in an AKV studio last year, and sadly it's the same. We have the same issue, have used the trash can, the table from the balcony, the fold out luggage stand topped with the tray from under the ice bucket and once an empty box we found in the hallway (which actually worked the best). I would be happy with even a small shelf attached to the corner of the wall ~ have considered buying and installing one on our longer visits but fear a "damage fee" even if it's attractive and we leave it upon check out.

To be completely honest, the CM made it sound like it wasn't that far and not once mentioned to have bell services drive me over. That was a mistake on Disney's part. I didn't realize it was that far out being that I've only stayed in Grandstand and this was about six or seven years ago. I can't imagine someone who is new to WDW dealing with it.
