We'd love to join DVC but can't afford it at the moment. It seems like such good value!
When it's a good time for you definitely join DVC. The savings are amazing!

I'm sure you will find out why we enjoy it so much. We are almost neighbors. We live in Edgewater.

You buying resale?

Don't buy a stripped contract.

Checking out the resorts is a fantastic way to know if DVC is right for your needs.

Just don't buy direct......

We are going to be at SSR this coming weekend and can't wait!

Leaving in 19 days THV for 10 nights I cannot wait, we have always loved the cabins at the Ft but never thought they were big enough! We will have a car and have 2 other people traveling with us staying at SSR. From what I read on this thread I should request South Bus stop at THV and have my parents and friends request Grand Stand??? We plan on doing some meals together at the THV and none of us mind a 10 - 15 minute walk. Are there paths in between and is this the best way to do it?

We just returned from our first stay at SSR (returned yesterday) and we LOVED it. We were in room 1825 in Congress Park. Our balcony overlooked DTD West side and the quiet pool. We were in a 1-bedroom (first time staying in one) and we loved all of the extra room that it has. We walked to DTD a couple of times, however for those of you going very soon they are working on the busstops at DTD Marketplace (not sure how long it will be down, it looked like they were resurfacing the road there) so the nearest busstop at DTD was at Pleasure Island. I was a little nervous staying here because it is such a big resort, but we were able to manage it just fine and can't wait to stay there again. It is such a pretty resort. Next time, the kids have already made a request to stay closest to the Paddock pool since they really liked it. We also did online check-in and our room was ready by 11:30am.
