Rockers!!! It's been a hectic week back, so I didn't post the latest pictures of our beloved rockers. Spent a lot of time this trip in those rockers. Beautiful weather...WHERE were you guys?

Artist's Palette rockers


Congress Park rockers

There were 7 rockers there this trip. We were the comatose couple rocking in the afternoon with our refillable mugs

Welcome Home to our new SSR neighbors!! We are now home from our trip home and wish we still there. Just a short TR with pictures for your dose of home.

We (DH and I) arrived on the red eye from the west coast Wednesday morning. Always request CP DTD view and have always gotten my request, learned this trip to request "water DTD view". Gets you a little more water and less trees We were in room 1812 studio. We have always left our cell number to get a text when the room was ready and have received the text before 4pm. This time they texted us as 1:45pm!!!

Our balcony view


Transportation: We didn't wait more than 10 minutes at CP or Springs bus stop. There was a CM at the Springs stop every day. The longest wait we had at any park 15 minutes at the MK.

Parks: MK was crowded. We spent most of our time in Epcot Flower and Garden Show which was wonderful. The crowd level was manageable. Watched Paul Revere twice, not only good but funny (He's 74 and has the best one liners) We discovered that my DH likes the mango margaritas. Also went to AK, which quickly filled up as the day went on. Never made it to DHS.

Food: We had a studio so cooking was limited. We had sandwiches and salads. We tried the new (to us) DTD CS Pollo Campero. Did the family meal take out which was one dinner and two lunches worth of meals. Just a hint, get the black beans and rice as one side. You get one full container of rice AND beans PLUS one other side, so it's like 3 sides.



Welcome Home Wednesday: We go because it's a break from the parks. Plus you get refreshments and ac. AND my DH loves DeeVee. He won a free year of Owner's Locker!! So excited, have wanted one for years.

It was a wonderful trip without the rushing around the parks. Actually did only one ride attraction, AK safari. And that was to take pictures for my students.
LOVED the Flower and Garden show!

And we wish we were rocking in the rockers tonight.

Thank you very much for responding.

Thank you!!

I am so glad I found this thread!!

I have been going back and forth on either staying at a value resort and paying for 2 connecting rooms or renting points and staying at a DVC resort. I happened upon the Treehouse villas and fell in love. Thanks to your info, I think we are going to do our family vacation in the Villas. It will be 8 of us total. Me, DH, DS (11), DD (7), my mom, my sister, her DH and their DS (12). My only question is the transportation from the villas to the parks. We have 2 kids with Down Syndrome and the quiet of the THV is appealing, but the long walks and long waits are not..

How bad is it to get from the THV to the Magic Kingdom??

Thanks!!!

Thanks for the TR. What a great view and thanks for the tip. I want to stay in CP the next time and DW wants the Paddock for the new feature pool. We also do WHW each trip. My oldest dd received a pin for audience answer question.

If you don't want to walk to the grandstand, the internal THV buses are supposed to come every 15 minutes. For us, it was easier to walk there. We love the quietness of the THV's. IF you don't want to be so far away, I would suggest renting a 2BR dedicated at BLT or AKV Kidani for the 2nd BR with 2 Q beds and the 3rd Bathroom.

We stayed in the Treehouse Villas last October and will be doing so again this November. We did have a car but we used the busses once (mom here wanted a few drinks at Epcot ). We were right by the boat dock and easily walked to one of the stops within SSR (not at the main entrance though) get the bus. If you let them know that you have special needs kids you can probably request to be nearest to the bus stop. Worst case you wait for the THV bus and take that over.

And honestly, my husband took a cab from Epcot one night to get back and it was cheap - like $8 or something worst case.

Good luck!

Joining in on this thread! We'll be at SSR in 189 days for 12 nights for our Disneymoon! We're renting points at an AWESOME price per point thanks to a great friend of mine who owns at SSR which is enabling us to stay for so long. Anyway, I've asked around and we currently have requested the Congress Park section as 1) it's closest to DTD and 2) it's location on the bus route. Does anyone have any other suggestions as far as the resort is concerned for us?

We just returned this week. I would request a rehabbed room. The first studio room we were given was in bad shape ... mold, missing paint, very worn bedspread .... etc. They did move us to a freshly painted and newly carpeted room. It was amazing to me how meticulous the grounds were but the building are in need of some love.

Thank you for the suggestion! I wouldn't be happy if that's what our room looked like.

I second this...were there refurbed rooms in CP? I still have 6 months so hopefully more of the resort will be cleaned up by then.
