Buses

We are DVC members and SSR is our home resort. We love the relaxed atmosphere after a hectic day at the parks. The grandkids love the pools and all the available activities at the resort.
Just wanted to say this about the buses : we have been there over Christmas and New Year's, Spring Break and 4th of July and have never ever had to stand on a bus or experienced an overcrowded bus. We have stayed at BW, AKL, OKW and BC and find the bus wait at SSR no worse than at those resorts.
Hope you love it there as much as we do.

Those are very encouraging words, knfries - thanks.
With a little luck, we'll have similar experiences.
The anticipation is killing me!

We own at this resort. We love it. I like that it is close to DTD. You can either walk, take a bus or there is a ferry boat as well.

Its very spread out but is very nice, great colors, and since its newer the rooms are really nice and in good working condition.

We like the Grandstand section. DH is a golfer and it has some nice golf course views, has a quiet pool with splash area, first on and off the buses, bar and refill station. Also about a 5-7 minute walk to Carriage House (main house) and main pool.

Honestly, any are is nice. the only one that seems far to me from the bus stop etc, is the carousel.

Other than that, they are all great areas.

That's where I ended up last Dec. It was a very nice section. It took me a bit to figure out how to get to the Carriage House, but I finally did!!!! Dopey me.
