( I once booked a one-bedroom for the two of us because we had some extra points to use. It literally kept me up that night, and I had to call first thing in the morning to change it to a studio. We did a second long-weekend trip that year to use the extra points.)
I guess we're in the points non cheapskate category. If we're going to fly all the way out to Florida, a one bedroom is the smallest unit we would consider. We were planning a trip with a friend and booked BLT and Kidani because bathrooms are important. Since the VGC is less than 1/2 an hour away, we thought we could work with studios there, but after last Fall's trip in a studio (and this was just an overnighter) we have now sworn off studios completely.

I NEED my jacuzzi tub, we can't live with a queen size bed, especially if one side of the bed does not have ample access. We actually NEED the King Size bed with good access on both sides, and well the dishwasher has worked out to be our friend as well as the laundry. Even when we're just overnighting less than half an hour from home.

If we're flying all the way across the country, well that Jacuzzi tub is a necessity.

Does the Washer have a spot to put fabric softener into?? We usually stay at OKW and they do not have place to put the fabric softener into. I hate to bring a container along and not need it.

11 days till we check in!!

We are car pooling with family to an off-property location. Will they be allowed to drive into SSR as visitors, and leave the car (we're taking our car)?

Alternative is to have them park at DTD, and swing over to pick them up

Thanks!!

Glad I found this thread. I'll be visiting SSR for the first time in October. I have to admit that I never had a huge interest in staying here. this was a last minute trip so I book.
These pictures are definitely getting me excited.

SSR Springs Bus Stops

We're visiting SSR to get massages at the spa. We'll be using disney buses to get there. I believe we need to get off at the The Springs bus stop. What number stop is The Springs when returning from the parks? (we'll be coming from MK) Are the stops marked clearly so we know where to get off the bus?

Thanks!

The Springs is the 5th (and last) stop. There is a recorded announcement on the buses to tell you which stop is which.

Slightly off topic.

Just pre-ordered the Photopass CD (not plus) and was wondering if there are Photopass photographers at Downtown Disney?

3 1/2 weeks until our vacation!! Getting excited now!

2 more sleeps until my first SSR visit!
Our friends will also be in Orlando and want to come visit us on Sunday. Will they be able to drive their car to meet us at SSR for a short while?
Also, how can I print out my boarding passes the day before we leave? Can I bring my info to the concierge and they can print them out for me?

You will find it delightful . . . a different experience all together from you-know-where. Find a rocker and sit a spell - you deserve it!

Visitors just need your room number and reservation last name, and photo I'd. Guard will let them in. We just did this with family visiting us, it worked great. Our SSR trip was amazing. Wonderful resort. Have a fantastic trip.

We are here! We got a great location, Springs in the 4200 section. We are steps from the High Rocks pool, Community Hall, the bus stop, etc. I had my first Mickey bar while sitting on the rockers outside of Artist Palatte last night
The room has not been updated yet. The front of the dresser drawer literally fell off in my hands when I was putting in my clothes yesterday. Maintenance did not reply to the first call, so I mentioned it last night when we we over by Winners Circle and someone came within the hour to take it and fix it. It should be back today some time.

Hi mrstomrice

Hope you have a lovely vacation. We love the Springs. Hope they manage to sort out your room issues! Do they have wifi by the springs pool yet did you notice?
