Which pool is best for an active, water slide lovin' ten year old boy?
Can we find out which area we are booking?
Thanks so much!
I'd say the paddock or the springs would be good for you.

I thought I saw a list of the approximate time between SSR & various other parks via bus, but I can't seem to find it now.
Does anyone know where I might find that info so I can figure out our logistics?
Thanks!

I have an app on my iPhone. WDW transportation wizzard, or TWiz. It's from the laughingplace.com. There may be info on that site too.

Might be the same deal with the cart getting serviced! Not acceptable they should lend one from another resort!
Thank you for your comment. I am glad to hear it actually exists. My parents usually go in April and October. I agree, they should have more than one. With all of the units they have at SSR, they must have their share of wheelchair bound visitors.

I know! Like what's that about just having one. I will be sure to let them know we know their secret when I am there!

Grocery Delivery at SSR

I'm looking into Garden Grocer for a delivery during our stay. On their site there is a list of WDW resorts which have Bell Services deliver the order. SSR is not listed. This is what it says on their website:

For most hotel & resort guests, you DO NOT have to be in your room at the time of delivery, unless it is a COD order. Your groceries will be waiting for you at the "bell services/luggage room". Just call bell services and they will deliver them to your room when you arrive.
Resorts That Currently Offer Bell Service Drop Off:
- Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Disney's Polynesian
- Grand Floridian
- Disney's Contemporary Resort (Bay Lake Tower)
- Coronado Springs
- Beach Club
- Disney's Yacht Club
- Disney's Bonnett Creek
- Disney's Boardwalk Resort


Am I correct in thinking that this means I'll have to p/u my groceries at Bell Services? I can see that this may present a problem since we won't have a car.

If anyone has any experience with this, would you please let me know how it works?

Thanks!

Ssr will bring the groceries to you but you'll need to tip them. If you have cold stuff make sure to remind them to get that stuff too.

I stayed at SSR in May 2012. We had a fairly large GG order. Bell Services was happy to deliver everything to the room, just don't forget to tip!

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards App, please excuse any typos or autocorrects!

Is it the same type of service if you order from dvc direct? I thought if you order from groceries from dvc they will put your hoceries away

Whew! Thanks for the info. And I will definitely tip well.

I'm sorry I can't answer your question, idreamodisney - I'm renting points so I don't know about DVC procedures.

I'm due to check out tomorrow at 11am but my flight isn't until late in the evening. Is there somewhere I could shower later in the day at SSR such as a courtesy room?

Not a courtesy room but each resort does have showers/changing area for such a situation! We've used them at SSR, OKW, BWV and Kidani! They are by the main pool!

Or the gym, depending on the resort.
