At SSR now and due to construction at main entrance road the Springs is the 1st pick up and drop off. We are in the Grandstand- closest building to Springs- and it is perfect. Love the pool here since it is less busy than Springs but still a short walk if my daughter wants to go on the slide. Only downside is the refillable drink station at Grandstand is only open limited times-not past 6pm.

Recommend that people take boat back to hotel from Dowtown Disney if possible since the bus back took longer.

Have you had an opportunity to see the new models available at SSR? I am so curious to see how they look. I was doing a DVC tour on July 28th but the updated rooms were not available. Just excited and curious.
Thanks

Stop at any of the DVC kiosks in theme parks, Downtown Disney, or any Disney resort. Tell them you'd like to tour the model rooms and they'll send a van to pick you up and take you to the sales center at SSR.

We got back Monday night and had a great time. We were also in the Springs section as requested. Fourth floor, 4432 - had a view of the fireworks.

We had no car. DD and her friend did the parks. I did not do any parks on this trip - coming back in December. Relaxed by the pool all day - evening was DTD, Boardwalk, POR and BLT - TOW Lounge. No problems with busses. Did not take the boat once but walked to DTD once and back twice.

First time here. I was overwhelmed at first for sure. I for for 60/90 minutes walks each morning and by the third day - I realized that you are really not too far from anything, bus, pool, DTD, etc. There are definitely some areas that are more remote than others. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I don't know which park they were from - I said to my daughter MK? and she said - you know how far that is from here. I should have asked at the desk. Epcot? Fantasmic. It was 9 pm when I saw them twice.

No I did not. Our room was not refurbished and we did not request to see one. I am sure they are really nice though!

I know the dedicated villas do not have the studio kitchenettes but does this also mean there will be two beds instead of the bed and sofa combination the studio rooms have? Thanks
I am curious about the term dedicated because when I booked through MS they did not mention that term, I did specifically ask for No lock off rooms. I wanted a straight 2 bedroom not the 1bR +Studio combo as I have three small kids. BTW I will be down there in November as well!!

There are dedicated two-bedrooms (one integrated villa with a single front door) and lock-off two-bedrooms (a one-bedroom villa with a connecting door to a studio). By requesting "no lock off rooms" you essentially asked for a dedicated two-bedroom.

The confirmation may or may not have the actual word "dedicated." (The online booking site does not.) If it doesn't specifically say "Lock Off" it is a dedicated.

Thanks for Posting this. Its super helpful. When we were in SSR last September it was our first time and we were right in front of the Grandstand pool. We loved it, nice and quiet, not busy and the kids toggled between the splash area and the pool. But I know how much they love water slides and so I am thinking with all the activities going on at the carriage house that we may spend more time there. Of course that all depends on how far away from it we are located.

We just returned from an awesome 5 day stay, we were in Paddock, a one-bedroom, on the 4th Floor. We were facing MK direction...and you absolutely can see Wishes. I was amazed, and thrilled. We could even see the "low" castle fireworks from our balcony. No sound, of course, but it was super magical all the same.

Coffee maker

Some of the other resorts have Kerig type coffee makers with coffee pods. Has SSR been upgraded to this, or still standard drip coffee maker?

Thanks
