We have an Airport Express that we keep in our Owner's Locker. Gives us wi-fi throughout the room. Great for both our laptop and our IPADS.

I'm arriving at MCO at 9:30, so it should be an early check-in.

Thoughts?
I agree with some of the other posters. I am a DVC'er and would rather do regular check in than do online. I want to make sure everything is perfect when I get there, and if there are any last minute updates or changes you have to talk to a CM in order to do that anyway. When we go with a huge family trip in April we will be at the AKV for the first time, and will be talking to a CM when we get there. Only 179 days and counting!

To be honest, I've done it both ways (check-in) and at this point I don't see the benefit of on-line!

We have not found those elusive benefits either!

Part of the DVC experience for us is the check in process - negotiating for our room always seems to be the highlight of the counter experience, along with great conversation, and possibly a visit from the Pin Board to start our stay off right!

Thanks for all the opinions about on-line check in. I've decided not to do it, and I'm hoping the lines aren't too long!

I have used Linksys D-Link several times and it worked great as a wireless router. It allows us to hook up all our laptops, iPads, etc. to the one wireless router (free for DVC member) and save on 3G/4G and other data charges. Plus we can wander any where around the unit.

Guess we aren't very good at sharing the one wired connection...

Anyone remember when you could actually watch the DTD fireworks from there?

Wish Disney would bring them back.

I've read elsewhere that as of last weekend, wi-fi is available at SSR!

Halloween activities?

We're so excited to be staying at SSR in two weeks! My DD3 and DS1 are going to love the Paddock pool for sure. We'll be there for Halloween, and plan to go to Mickey's Backyard BBQ on Halloween at 5PM, but I wonder if my DD will miss trick or treating and whether SSR does anything special for Halloween? I know it's a long shot, but I want to be prepared for all possibilities! Thanks in advance.

We were at SSR two years ago for Halloween. I remember them having a table in the Carriage House with many carved pumpkins that the staff had done. Some of them were really cool. But I don't remember anything like trick or treating.

They used to do it at Downtown Disney, but will not be doing it this year. The only alternative is Mickey's Not-So-Scarry Halloween Party.

If you're not doing one of those, just take the kids to Goofy's Candy Factory and let them pick out some treats. So long as they get the booty, they won't mind that they missed out on doing the work of knocking on all those doors to get it.
