I can't think of a gazebo at SSR, other than the one in the Carousel that's decorated to look like a carousel. Is that the one you mean? If so, it's roughly under the "o" in the word Carousel.
I didn't like staying in the carousel section. If the carousel had actually been a working carousel,then that section would be a whole lot better.

Really like their prime rib. IMO, I think it was most underrated steak on property. Where was dessert? Ghirardelli or Haagen-Dazs.

Air Goofy.

How are the Love Bugs at SSR? Does anyone know if they would be worse in the THV area?

We're checking in at THV next Wednesday.

Bus Question

We are staying at SSR for the first time in June, as our home resort of OKW was booked by the time we closed on our purchase. So excited to try a new place!

I have a question about getting around the resort - we will have a car, but my DH will take it to go play golf on two mornings. DD and I will hit the pools while he's gone. I know that at OKW you can take the buses to get to the main pool - does SSR have a similar set up? I'm thinking we are going to request Paddock or Grandstand area, and would like to "pool hop" within SSR once or twice. We can walk, but in truth, DD wants to take a bus (because she's never been on one.)

Thanks so much!

The last time we went to the Turf Club the experience was of a different caliper. Prime rib was really tough and rubbery. The service was meh, and the restaurant was a wreck. Our server seemed to leave for a very long period of time. Glad you got to enjoy the prime rib.

If you go back a few threads you'll see the listed order of the theme park bus stops.... The downtown disney bus goes in reverse order.... use those to help plan your pool visits! Also, refer to Dave's new maps!

Any theme park bus will take you to the Springs section. The main pool is right across the street from that bus stop. Catch the Downtown Disney bus from the Springs to return to your section of the resort.

I only wish I was in SSR to give you a report, but alas, am not. However, I have a friend staying over at AKL and he said the love bugs are bad right now. I hope they don't find there way over to the THV.

I think the others have given you the route, but in case, the theme park buses go Grandstand, Carousel, Paddock, Congress Park, and Springs. DTD goes in reverse. Have a great trip.

Sorry to hear that. We really like that Turf Club and recommend it. Plus, we like the boat ride to DTD for dessert. Sorry you had a bad meal.

Ghiradelli's

Also the service was very good last night at The Turf Club.

We are in The Grandstand section and they are starting to show up. We noticed a few last week but today we really started to see more of them at the pool.
