Which section would you request if you wanted to be close to the boat transportation and one of the main pools? Which pools have pool bars?

Close to the Boats? - The Springs and The Grandstand

Pool Bars? - All pools except the Congress Park quiet pool have pool bars.

Best Hot Tub to sip your beverage and watch the boats? - Congress Park Quiet Pool Hot Tub! (just thought I would throw that in . . . )

I found this post at the bottom of page 2 . . . we must have fallen asleep in the Rockers . . .

Anybody spent any time in the hot tub at the new Paddock Pool early in the morning?

Getting sooo excited for our first trip home in May!!!

Can anyone tell me what is available in the Community Hall. We are totally new to DVC and don't know if there are worthwhile activities there...or if this is something to pass on.

We've requested Springs b/c it seems pretty central. How is the walk to DTD from Springs?

How is the walk from Springs to the newer Paddock pool??....I'm sure the kids will want to compare the waterslides!!

AimKo –

The community Hall offers lots of activities to keep the kids talking! It has ping pong, foosball, arts and crafts and lots of board games to choose from. The schedule shows it is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Community Hall also provides scheduled programs depending on the day and season. Check the web or the schedule in your Welcome Pack when you check in.

Walking is just great at SSR! There are lots of paths leading everywhere: the walk to DTD from The Springs will take about 15 minutes, but take the boat! The boat ramp is located just behind the Carriage House. It is a great ride! The walk to the new Paddock Pool from The Springs is only 2-3 minutes – across the bridge over the pond and splash into the pool, or ride the slide. There are adult refreshments there as well; like a hot tub and libations!

Enjoy your stay – and WELCOME HOME!

The two buildings that flank it are the Paddock buildings with room numbers 5101-5436 and 5501-5836. The Springs building that is immediately adjacent to the other end of the bridge is also very close. Those are room numbers 4101-4436.

Here's the map:

Taxi

Hello all,
Staying at SSR for the 1st time…
As far as getting a taxi, can I call bell services to dispatch one to whatever area of the resort we’re staying?


Thank very much
