There is the cutest gentleman in the lobby who has a pin board and the kids made sure to visit him when possible and trade. He was there when we checked in so I'm glad we found him at the beginning of the trip.

My daughter made friends with the THV bus drivers so they'd drop us at our villa instead of the bus stop- super cool.

I couldn't be happier with our purchase at SSR and can't wait to stay in the regular section.
Well, who doesn't like a bar with their pool. It sounds like you had a little extra Disney magic, which makes the trip even that much more special.

Ssr

I've been a DCV owner for 2 years and haven't yet stayed at my Home Resort-SSR. Now that I've read most of this thread, I'm looking forward to my first stay at SSR, which will be in 35 days.

We tried to keep it our secret, that SSR is a nice resort, but apparently, it is not working. Have a great trip.

We just spent five days at THV. Overall, we loved the layout of the villa and the extra bedroom. The one negative is the distance to SSR and all of the amenities. We ended up parking at the Springs everyday to avoid the extra wait for the THV bus.

like magnetic lock or metal doors? Because they now have the chipped key cards but I honestly have no idea if the doors are metal. Never tried to stick anything on one. LOL

The whole door. As someone coming from DCL into the SSR community, I have been trained to hang magnets on the door. If you have been on a Disney cruise, you will know what I am talking about.

DVC asks that no decorations be hung outside your room.

Sounds like a lot of fun. We did a stay in a 2 BR villa in Gatlinburg and the two dds shared a room, which they do not at home, but each had their own single bed and a tv in their bedroom. When I asked them their favorite part (individually), they said it was the hotel room.

The THV is definitely a plan, but agree, it is a lot of points.

With only three weeks to go until our SSR homestay, the weather has turned in the mid-Atlantic region. DW used the unexpected couple of extra days off from work to switch over / clean out DD's wardrobe. I did the same with my own. Best part about this is we decided to go ahead and pack for our trip; won't be needing those clothes up here. So, we are half-way packed already. That's a record.
