WOW! Congratulations on being able to get what you needed!

I'll be down in about three weeks, and with all the love SSR gets I can't wait to see for myself!

Now that is really awesome. Enjoy the THVs and congratulations on 10 year Anniversary. Are you doing them over at the Wedding Pavillion at GF?

Congrats!! Sounds like it will be a magical trip.

I just got back today from a split stay between BCV and SSR. We had 5 nights at BCV and 8 nights at SSR. Two very different but wonderful resorts. It was my first time using my DVC membership and I couldn't be happier.

I booked SSR 11 months out and requested Congress Park. When I checked in they said my room was in the Carousel and I had no preference listed on my reservation (my confirmation said I requested Congress Park). Luckily they were able to work some magic and I got Congress Park. My family loved walking to Downtown Disney and having meals at Wolfgang Puck Express (best use of counter service credit ever!!) and shopping.

My niece utilitized the Paddock pool and High Rock Spring pool too. As a grown up I think I prefered the High Rock Spring pool because I could enjoy a pina colada while she played. One night she did a marshmallow roast and loved the other poolside activies. I can't wait to come back with my other two nieces.

We were disappointed with limited stations to refill our mugs considering the size of the resort. I checked out the exercise facilities at the spa. They seemed like great facilities but I didn't use them. I did use the scale to weigh myself to see how much trouble the disney dining plan and my bad choices got me in. I now believe anywhere Disney has a scale on property it should have a box of kleenex right next to it.

I never stayed in SSR prior and was kind of nervous about the bus transportation due to the multiple stops and the size of the resort. We did have to stand on the bus during peak times (we usually offered up our seats) but the buses operated quickly so it wasn't a major hassel to have multiple stops. I thought the lack of mousekeeping would be an issue as well and my family was prepared to pay for additional cleaning services but we ended up not even needing the trash part of our last towel and trash service.

Those are two of my future plans at WDW, but maybe not the same year. Have a great trip!

I had to go to page two to find this thread! It is cold over there, with no highlights and a feel of being forgotten.

OK. What do you like to do more than any other thing when staying at SSR?

I love to hit the Hot Tub at ~6:30 AM! It is a great way to start the day. Once I hit the tub at ~5:30 AM, and thinking that I was pretty much alone, began to sing a few favorite hymns that came to mind. After a few minutes, along came another guy with towel around his neck that just kept on walking right by. Somehow I think I must have scared him off. So Sorry!

I do still sing on occasion, but I try not to see if I can hear the echoes off of the buildings!

I'm always the first one up in the family. My favourite thing is to make my cup of tea and just sit out on the deck early in the morning and watch everything wake up. Seeing the familys rush to the bus stop. Golfers tee off. I love my SSR.
