Great! We love SSR! Your 4 year old will love the Paddock pool good choice! I hope you have a great vacation! When are you going?

Subscribing!!

Looking to change my OBX timeshare date and quickly checked Orlando area for a rare Disney pick-up. Found 1bdrm in 3rd week of August. Jumped on it. Here I am

DD's 4 and 11 will be so excited!! Hoping to stay in Paddock near the bridge but I am sure that is a popular request. Either way, the place looks beautiful.

Do most of you rent cars? We did when we stayed at Kidani and OKW but did not when we were at Coronado and the service was fine. We used the busses some at Kidani when we split up and were not impressed, esp with the MK busses. 20-25min wait, 20min drive. Takes a loooong time in the eyes of a then impatient 2 year old.

Hi. Welcome! We always rent a car but we do stay for 2 weeks as we come over from the UK. We like to be able to go to walmart etc and get our breakfast supplies to have in the room. We also like to mix dining on and off property for variety and cost. We sometimes drive to the parks as it can be quicker but do use disney transport also. I am disabled so we do find the extra flexibility useful but being an easy walk to downtown disney or short bus ride with kids I can image SSR would be doable without a rental car. The Paddock or Grandstand gets our vote! Both pools are nice. But if we had kids The Paddock might be better.

We have stayed at the Paddock request a renovated room if possible. My boys like the pond and the fish more than the pool. LOL We used the buses and did not feel we were too far or too long of a drive except for when we went to AK then they thought we had got lost. Always there for rope drop and always got there on time. Car would be nice if we had a lot of extra time but unneeded for our family of 5. Enjoy!

We've started to get a car for every trip, but did many, many trips relying entirely on Disney transportation. The biggest convenience of the car is being able to do stuff off-site.

Aside from the occassional bus that doesn't show up within 20 minutes (which happens at every resort), I've never had a real issue with SSR transportation. I would think that if you didn't think Coronado was bad, you shouldn't have issues at SSR.

Coffee Machines in Room

We are going to be staying at SSR over Spring Break. We are really looking forward to visiting this resort again; we haven't been since 2005. I read somewhere that Disney was going to start putting single serve coffee machines, like a Keurig, into the rooms at all resorts. I do not remember where or when I read this, but I was wondering what type of coffee machines are in the rooms at SSR. We have booked 2 studios there. I would love to bring some of my k-cups to use in the morning before heading to the parks.

TIA!

I've read the same thing over on the resort board, but haven't seen any of them in the DVC villas yet. Our SSR room still had the traditional glass pot coffee maker about a month ago.

That would be so nice to have in the rooms. That would be a useful upgrade in my book. Did they have the bedding changed out yet? We are going in June and would like to see both there.

I would request one of the buildings adjacent to the Paddock Pool area. Last year we were one building removed & it always felt like a bit of a hike over to the pool area & bus stop.

Is there room in the 1 bedroom area for a kid size inflatable mattress? We are staying for a week and have a 3 and 11yr old. We will always put the 3yr old to sleep in the king bed to start but debating whether we would transfer her to a bed on the floor or just sleep with her in the middle. I can not see her and her 11yr old sharing the pullout. They both are very restless sleepers and I imagine a noisy mess. I would be fine with her in the middle, but again, the girl sleeps all over the place. Thinking an air mattress might give us more space. How bad is the pullout sofa? Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure you could fit an air mattress for your LO, certainly a toddler sized one, probably even a twin size easily.
