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.
Thank you to all that replied! It's going to be a wonderful trip, and now I know what to expect with transferring to another resort. Thanks again!

First time at SSR this summer!

Hello all!

This summer, I'm going on a 7-night western Caribbean cruise with my family on the Fantasy, and earlier today, I decided to add on 6 nights at WDW after the cruise. I figure that since I'm flying all the way across the country (I live in San Francisco) for the cruise, I might as well spend some time at the parks as well.

I'm a BWV owner, but because of the relatively short time between now and my travel dates, I wasn't surprised that BWV wasn't available. However, SSR had a studio for my dates (6/29 - 7/5), and I very happily booked it! I've visited SSR and loved wandering around the grounds, but I've never stayed there. I'm really looking forward to exploring everything the place has to offer and taking full advantage of the proximity to DTD.

Woo hoo!

-- Dave

Enjoy Dave, come back and tell us all about your first stay here. I think many people are pleasantly surprised how much they like it once they stay here and you will too. Have fun.

Hi fellow SSR lovers! we are heading home in 51 days having not been for a few years

Can I ask if anyone has used online check in with a room request? Some people are suggesting we would be better waiting until we get there to check in?

You can do online check in. The wait thing was for the last few resorts that actually still read faxed in requests for certain areas. SSR doesn't as far as I know.

I personally still do the online check-in. I'd rather enter information online than tell it to a cast member over the counter, simply for convenience sake. Most times, online check-in seems to be a little quicker. A few times it's been extremely quick.

One check-in at BLT when I hadn't remembered to do the online check-in, it took us 45 minutes to get checked in because the CM said his computer was having problems. Meanwhile, we didn't see similar delays at the other desks. I really wish I'd done the online check-in for that stay.

There are times, though, that the advance check-in line will be longer than the walk-up line. The was the case during our last SSR check-in, when the a very crowded DME bus had pulled in a few minutes before we drove up. (Nothing special about DME and online check-in, it's just that there was a lot of people arriving at the same time.)

If you're going to do anything out of the ordinary regarding your room keys, you may want to skip the online check-in. For example, if you want room charging on some keys, but not others. Or if you want to have different credit cards associated with different keys. There's no way to annotate things like this on the online check-in. (You can still do online check-in, of course, but they'll need to throw away the keys that were previously created for your check-in package and print new ones after they make the changes.)

I didn't realize any resorts still did this. I haven't sent a fax in years because I assumed they just went right in the trash now. Do you know which resorts still do this?

Sounds Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Greetings all! Can anyone tell me if the coffee makers have changed recently at SSR? I thought I heard a CM at AKV talking about it during our last visit in November 2011 but haven't been able to confirm it. I'm really just trying to figure out if I need to pack coffee filters for our trip next weekend. As I type this I remember that I couldn't find coffee filters to buy in the AKV store back then either.

The ones in the one bedroom villa had regular coffee filters and coffee grounds. Like a normal coffee maker.
