This is out First time staying on property. I requested CP b/c it's close to DTD and I figured the kids (16-20) could walk over on their own. We also have dining plans at resort restaurants and thought we could have easy access to hotel restaurants via DTD busses. Is this a good plan? Also was wondering if the kids can use the quiet pool at CP or is it just for adults? And How far is CP to the main lobby, food courts, and other pools? Any thoughts would help. Beth

SSR Owner and Lover here!
We have stayed in SSR Studio, 1 BR, 2BR & Grand Villa...Congress Park, Paddock & Grandstand.

Our trip next month will be our first stay in a Tree House Villa!

Any suggetions on what to request for a room? I asked for a water view, but I was just looking at a map and thought maybe "close to granstand" might be a way to go. We will have an extra car or two as people come and go throughout the week, so we will have to park someone at the main resort. Would love to hear any experiences!

We've stayed in the THV twice. Once, we were right next to the South bus stop. The second time, we were along the 2-way section of the road, not too far from the boat dock. Being near the South bus stop (and path to the Grandstand) was more convenient, but to be honest, the other location wasn't that bad. It was a slightly longer walk to the bus and the path, but not bad. I would not have wanted to be farther up into the North loop, though.

Rather than "close to Grandstand," I'd be more specific and say "waterfront villa close to South bus stop."

When next month? We'll be there in October as well and at the THV's!

Been awhile since I posted on this thread.

Still a Saratoga Springs Lover!!!

We have three trips to WDW in the next three months. We'll be staying at SSR for all three trips. For F&W, we have three studios....for three couples. In November, we have a studio for just a T&R getaway. In December, we are taking my Brother and Sister's Family for Christmas/NYE and have a Grand Villa and two studios.

Everyone is so looking forward to spending Christmas at Disney.

That is really cool. Never been to WDW for Christmas. Maybe one day. Enjoy your trip.

Another question.. We are staying at SSR in November (in 54 days to be exact ). We have requested a room at the Paddock. Does anyone know if the coffee makers have been updated to K-cups, or are they still the old fashion brewers? I just want to know what to pack.. ( I need my coffee!) Thanks!!

I stayed in the Paddock section in May. It was the regular old brewer, Mr Coffee type coffee pot.

I've been enjoying the "Show Me the Cupcakes" thread; wondering if SSR has any special cupcakes to offer. Please post pictures if you can.

Hi, Beth. Don't know if anyone answered your questions. If they did, ignore this, if not, I'll give it a try.

CP is easy walking distance to the main building (with the restaurants, gift shop) and pool. Less than five minutes if you stroll. I'm not sure about the other pool since I've not been there in a few years (I know, weird, right?).

DTD buses are a great idea for getting to the other hotels/resorts. I've done that myself. Allow yourself extra time if you have dinner reservations.

Unless they've changed the rules, kids can be at the quiet pool. It's only really designated quiet because it doesn't have the amenities the bigger pools have.

Here's a quick pointer for you since you're onto the DTD bus idea. If you're at Epcot for Illuminations, rather than herding to the front of the park afterwards, go out the back gate to Boardwalk or Beach Club resort. Catch a DTD bus there and you'll almost always be assured of seating. You can get off at DTD and stroll back to your CP room. You'll wait longer for the DTD bus and it stops at Swan and Dolphin on the way, but it's less stressful, IMHO. I haven't gone to the front of Epcot after Illuminations in years.
