My last trip I used Garden Grocer and was very happy with them. They will leave your items with bell services if you are not in your room and then when I got back I just had bell services bring the bags to my room.

Also...anything the girls shouldn't miss while they are there? Any clubs to check out?

Thanks!!!!
Even though I loved Congress Park for the view and short walk to DTD, the Springs would be really nice to be close to the Carriage House and eating areas.

I can only vouch for garden grocer, and I was really happy with them. Some like wegoshop, so it's totally a personal preference kind of thing. The only thing with Garden Grocer is that there is a mininum ($40) a delivery fee of $12, and you have to tip. So I wasn't expecting to spend $80 for a four day trip, but I'll definitely do it from now on it was so nice not to worry about anything.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking the same thing. We stayed at CongreePark as a family and loved the location but I do think the kids would like to be closer to the eating and pools.


Is there still pool hopping? I know the pool at Beach Club is off limits but what about the others?

There is pool hopping, but I know there's rules too. You also can't use Bay Lake Towers and Animal Kingdom Lodge pools. I'm going to check if there's a link on the DVC website. I know I've gotten pamphlets the last two times I've gone with the rules, but I don't have those with me.

Less than a month out from my SSR Treehouse Villa. Any suggestions on a specific room or area we should request? We'll have a rental car as well if that's a factor.

My suggestion is to request the north bus stop, so that way you are easy in and easy out with your car! Without a car, I suggest the south bus stop. Remember your THV will only have one parking spot (not sure how many cars you will have). The second car can be parked at the grandstand.

We'll have just one, a minivan. Thanks for the tip. Looking at the map, that was my feeling as well.

This is great, thank you. We never have a car and this is good info. If we keep our reservation at the THV, we'll request the south bust stop.

I'm so pleased I found a thread dedicated to SSR! I love this resort... way more than AKL and the Poly. I'm surprised that it isn't one of the popular Disney resorts- we absolutely loved it.

We'd love to join DVC but can't afford it at the moment. It seems like such good value!
