We had a 1 BR in that building closest to the bridge and our balcony overlooked the lake and bridge. It was a great view to wake up to in the morning. That was before the new pool was built. DW wants to stay in Paddock again for new pool. I want to stay in CP for DTD view/ walk.

Great during the day but even better at night with the lights! Quiet pool/grill near by! We love Congress Park, DTD view!

Question about online check in requests.

There is no option to choose the Spings, but there is an option for all other sections. There is "near the Carriage House." Would this be my choice for Springs?


Thanks!

I think we all know how that works. Enjoy the Paddock.

Could they be doing a refurb which is why it does not appear? Or have they finished The Springs?

Yuuup! Which isn't a bad thing because I liked the section even before the added pool, but wanted to try CP for something new. What, I got 41 more years for a chance to stay there?

I was under the impression it was complete.

Backstory:

I am renting points (first time, yay!) and I sent my request to the broker to pass on to my member. I have no idea if the member will actually email DVC.

So I figured I would do online check in as well just to make sure the request gets in. But I can't actually WRITE the request, I check off two boxes.

Wonder if I am better off not doing online check in and just talking to the person who checks me in. I was thinking I could send a fax with the request a few days before we check in.

Thoughts?

We do not do online check in anymore actually. I would wait and do it at the desk. The queue for the online is now sometimes longer! Hope you get your request. The springs is nice. We have always got the block we wanted.

A few more weeks and we'll be in our treehouse villa! I can't wait. We are renting a car so of complaints, that one we solved. We don't mind walking and because we are DVC members, we feel we don't have to rush around, so the long walks to Artist Palette or to the main pool won't bother us. Plus, it gives us a chance to really enjoy the resort. When we stayed there last (SSR, Grandstand) my daughter was 1 and woke up very fussy so we would go on 6am walks around the resort! She's 5 now--how time flies--especially when you are on vacation!

I would not do online checkin. The few times I have done this, we've wanted to change our room location, which takes time, so it defeats the purpose. With little options to choose from, I can never get close to the area/room location I would like. I say skip it, hope your DVC member emails and if it isn't what you'd like, ask what's available when you arrive. they are very good with trying to accommodate.

Looking into buying at Saratoga Springs. Is there long lines for the buses since it has the most rooms available? If I were to try to book a treehouse villa 11 months out consistently would I have a problem? Appreciate any help with this thank you.
