Thank you


Does anyone know if there is a better building in the springs area to request if you have a car for parking closer to your building?

Thanks
Not from ssr. You can take the boat to Dtd then wait for the POR boat and take that one to POR and then back to Dtd and then get on the ssr boat. That is extremely time consuming if you don't get on boats right away at each stop.

Hi all!

So happy to find this thread! I just booked a vacation for early November, first time at SSR. I starting to read through the thread ( only to page 6 so far ) sorry if this has been asked, more than once by now, when does the resort decorate for Christmas? And when do the Characters start appearing at the carriage house? We tried to book a full week at the THV but they weren't available, so we booked a split stay. 4 nights at a 2 bedroom and 3 nights at the Treehouses.
TIA
Melinda

SSR puts up some Christmas "touches," but it isn't decorated as lavishly as places like Yacht/Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge, and Grand Floridian. There is a tree in the Carriage House and some garland around the check-in and Concierge desks. The buildings all have some sprays of greens and ribbons.

I'm not sure exactly when the Characters start appearing, but we checked in on 12/22/2012 (the Saturday before Christmas) and Mickey was there in the lobby for pictures. I'll have to look at my photos, because I can't remember how he was dressed. I want to say he was in a Christmas sweater, but it might have been Old English garb.

We'd much rather SSR than OKW but I'm positive OKW has a chair but I sadly do not think SSR does. I wanted to confirm.

Thanks! I love SSR even though we own at BLT and AKV. Its my second fave after BWV (we got married there so it will always hold a special place in my heart).
They don't have sleeper chairs but you could bring a twin size air mattress and sheets. If you move the table and chairs around it should fit there or near the main entrance where the connecting door is there would be room for a single mattress then you can stand it up along the wall during the day. You wouldn't be over capacity so I don't see a problem with the mattress.

I would assume the king bed is floral and since you wouldn't have a dedicated second bedroom or studio you won't have any fox and hound bedding

Lol...seriously though the video was awesome! I sent it to DH and told him that's where we are staying in December (just bought in December and haven't been yet) and he was really impressed with how nice it was. He said it was bigger than he expected (not sure what he was expecting Lol).

A few questions

Hi, we're planning our first visit to SSR (renting points from a friend) and I have a few questions:

1. The FAQ mentions that Congress Park is a long walk to the Carriage House, but on the map it looks like it's right next door. Is there a walking path that's a pretty direct route, or does it meander so much that it increases the distance? We like the idea of Congress Park for proximity to DTD but I do have mobility issues, so I wouldn't want a long "hike" to the main amenities.
2. Does the boat still only stop at Pleasure Island, or does it also go to Marketplace?
3. Is the sofabed in a 1 BR comfortable? Or just tolerable? We'll have 4 adults on the trip.
4. What kind of groceries are available at the AP shop? Has anyone compiled a price list?

Thanks so much in advance!
