In the past I have seen movies going at the main pool by check-in.

There are nightly movies at the High Rock Spring Pool. When we were there in August, 6 of the nights are already scheduled and the 7th night was viewer's choice. You get the schedule when you check in with the other information about the special events at the resort. The movies started at 9 pm, but may be earlier as seasons change?

Great idea! I would love to see a character breakfast at SSR. It would also put SSR on the 'map' so to speak. I don't think it gets the recognition it deserves- we much prefer it to the Poly and AKL.
I do think the dining options are a little limited at SSR. Other deluxe resorts have many more, so I would love to see some more options.

We were moved to SSR this past week after some problems at FQ (won't go into details). Let's just say we fell in love with the place and are now considering DVC!

Just wanted to let those who are going soon know that construction at the main entrance is ongoing and the buses are using an alternate entrance. We spoke to a gate guard who said it should be finished in a few weeks.

Hope this helps someone!

Glad you loved it! SSR is often overlooked so I'm really pleased you fell in love with the place. Keep us updated on your moves with DVC! I have to say we were the same when we first stayed at SSR but budget wouldn't allow us to join DVC

We thought it was absolutely beautiful! We were moved into a 1BR, so of course we felt completely spoiled. The resort is gorgeous and the staff is so friendly. My hubby opened the door and said, "I don't think we can go back to staying at POP after this ..."

We went to the DVC presentation, but told them upfront we weren't signing/buying any time soon. We were given tons of paperwork and information to bring home, but I think resale is really the way to go for our budget (which is tiny-tiny).

We did a 1 BR at SSR. It was amazing. We still do studio stays at WDW, which are nice. We have enough points for 2 studio week stays a year, or a 1 BR week stay once a year. So far, 2 stays are winning.

Thank you, I know we've seen the movies at the Allstar resorts and at the Beach Club, I was hoping they had them at SSR too.

That's kind of how we're leaning - buying enough for 2 studio stays per year. That, or doing a studio stay one year, banking whatever leftovers there may be, and doing a 1BR every other year.

The information is so overwhelming - feel like we're kinda in over our heads. I'm just reading, reading, reading ...

Don't know when you're going, but thought this may help.

It is a lot, but you have many years to figure it out. We are one of those wish we had found out about DVC sooner.

If you still feel overwhelmed, it is still too soon to buy. . Stick around the Purchasing DVC forum & read, read, read-- folks there can answer most any question you can think of or correct any misconceptions you might have. There is no hurry. No deadline. DVC isn't going anywhere. It will still be there when you are ready to buy. If you rush into it however, it could be a very expensive mistake to have made. Witness all the contracts available for resale, listed at crazy high prices. They are all mistakes, often mistakes that were financed, and as such are not worth as much on the resale market as the outstanding loans on them.

I first did a DVC presentation at the MK in 2007. So glad we did not buy then. Kept learning & discovered the resale market. Kept going to Disney & learning more about DVC when we returned home for 5 years. We just bought resale this past summer. Take your time, it is the only way to know if DVC truly is a good fit for you & your family.

That is really good advice. We originally purchased a resale contract in 2008 thru the sponsor on this forum. We had been to Disney 3 consecutive years (one week long trip each year) and realized that we would keep returning every year because we enjoyed WDW so much. So, we bought a small resale contract, then added through Disney (probably shouldn't have done that), and then another resale contract.

Now, we own at SSR, BLT, and BWV and are very happy. We have enough points, with banking/ borrowing, for 3 trips in one year, ever 3rd year, as long as we continue to stay in studios.

The other advice I will offer is that I recommend not financing DVC. After DVC purchase, you still have annual membership dues, and then theme park tickets and food at WDW. I did the financing; however, after several months of payments, DVC became a burden. And, I don't want my trips to WDW to be a burden. So, we paid off the balance and then just saved and added on when the right size contract came along.

Thank you both for the information and advice. Much appreciated. DH and I don't plan to go back to WDW until 2014, and we hope to have made a decision about DVC by then. We truly did love SSR but don't want to rush into anything. We've been looking over resale listings since the day we got back, and the prices are so different from direct sales through Disney it's just mind-blowing!

I would love to see some more recent pictures! We are going in December and would love to get pumped by looking at pictures. It always puts me in a good mood.
