A large tree house for sale in my area. It used to be the offices of a financial planner (I think). I like the outdoor elevator on the back of the deck. It makes me think of the THVs at SSR every time I use the rails-to-trails.
It looks large enough to be a Tree House Grand Villa.

Wow! That does look like a Tree House Grand Villa. How much is it? You could buy it and replicate SSR at home lol.

That is an awesome picture and would make a great vacation home. Are you going to buy it?

Not sure what the owner is asking. It has been on the market for awhile.
I am thinking it is probably a zoning issue (non-residential/business only) or the asking price is still too high.
I think my wife and I will stay in our ranch and not worry about the elevator upkeep.

Yeah, maintenance fees are terrible.
I probably wouldn't go for the elevator upkeep either, but it is still a real cool house and thought to be living in a THV.

Just home from a wonderful Christmas vacation that included five nights at my favorite resort. We arrived at the resort at about 9:30 am and asked to be in the Carousel. I guess one nice thing about that section, is that even at an hour and a half before checkout time, we were given our choice of four different studios that were already cleaned and ready to go.

We had a car, so it did soften the blow of being in the Carousel, but I'm afraid that, all things considered, I really do have to jump on the band wagon and vote this my least favorite section. We were in the second building, which made it seem even farther away from everything.

We came back from Downtown Disney on the boat, and I said, "It isn't as far as it seems on the map. Let's just walk back." Well, no, actually it is as far as it seems on the map.

Being in a studio, it was also an extra step to have to put the laundry in the car and drive it to one of the laundry rooms.

Several things to update in my SSR FAQ as a result of this trip...
  • Never realized it before, but the "carousel" in the carousel section is actually a community BBQ area with 2 grills and 2 picnic tables. I didn't have that on my map.
  • The laundry room at the Springs is larger than the laundry rooms in the Paddock, Grandstand, and Congress Park. It has 1 high-capacity washer, 3 standard washers, and 6 dryers. There are also two very large folding tables.
  • The order for the Downtown Disney bus is Springs -> Grandstand -> Carousel -> Paddock -> Congress Park.

Glad you had a great stay. I have to agree with you about the Carousel. If they would just make it a free, working carousel with RFID access, it would completely change that section of the resort. Or, charge less points, but neither seem likely.

I don't like split stays. That's what I am not looking forward to with this cruise/ WDW stay. I'll try to pack separately, other than hygeine stuff, as I don't want to pack & unpack.

I'm not a big fan of split stays either but thinking about it due to WL during the holidays (might do a weekend trip next Christmas time and stay at WL so that'll ax the split in 2014 but can't wait for the 1st stay at SSR

Glad to hear you had a great stay. When I stayed there in August (my first time) - I knew from my morning walks that the Carousel section is the most isolated one/furthest one and would make sure not to request it.

We are going in less than two weeks again and know that the spa will be closed - does anyone know if the fitness center/gym is separate and open and/or it will not be affected by the spa being closed. Did not check it out last time I was there. I am thinking the Spa is up and the fitness center is down on the main floor for some reason. I emailed MS and waiting for a response. TIA
