I wonder if anyone here saw the rumors about a big new DTD project. Check out summary of some leaked info and concept art here: WDW News Today: Leaked Concept Art & Details – “Disney Springs” Set to Replace WDW’s Downtown Disney

The reason I mention it here is because at the very end of the article it highlights some of the key changes. Included is a "bridge connecting Village Marketplace to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort." It appears this would be a new foot bridge over the canal that runs between Congress Park and the DTD Marketplace (just a little closer than the current road bridge).

If these changes are true, I think it will be great for SSR owners (and DTD visitors too!).

I was searching and can't seem to find if SSR had the rfid locks or not yet.

Hi! I love SSR. BEen a DVC member since 2006. Our next trip is post cruise, in June. I have a question since we have a split stay. We'll be at BCV for the first 6 nights then transferring to SSR. We won't have a car, so do we need to provide our own transportation to SSR via taxi?

For us switching from one report to another they offered complimentary service for that.

Thank you so much! It's a relief to know I don't have something else to plan.

They have huge 15 passenger motor pool vans that they could use. But even if you had to use a taxi they have those vans also and it was only 23$ to go from SSR to sea world yesterday. And there usually always a Mears Taxi van somewhere close by.

The easiest way is to call bell services to come pick up your luggage from the room at BCV that morning. Tell the bellman that you're transferring the bags to SSR. If you have groceries that need to be refrigerated, be sure to point them out.

Then you can head to one of the parks and enjoy yourself for a while, or have breakfast at Downtown Disney. Take the bus from there to SSR to check in. When doing a baggage transfer, the bags typically show up at the new resort in the late afternoon.

Once you're in your new room, call down to bell services to have them delivered to the room. You'll need to be there when they deliver them. (It doesn't work like Disney's Magical Express. They won't leave the bags in the room if you're not there.)

I usually tip $2 per bag to the bellmen at each resort.

Thanks in advance! I suspect they look like the ones they have on the Fantasy (the door locks, not the KTTW cards).

2 weeks to go till I'm there!
