Just back from SSR - outstanding trip as always!

We spent the first four days at Kidoni village, but then moved the last six days to SSR. We love the feel, and were glad to be back! We spent lots of time in the pool this time and only half days in the parks.

We sure wish it was easier to get to port Orleans on the boats. Taking the boat to Pleasure Island, then a water taxi to DTD to pick up the boat to PO that goes right by the SSR boat dock. Sure wish they had a shuttle between the two.

I know! Is this a recent change? I seem to remember a boat going to PO from SSR and OKW. I wish they'd make the stop. I'm sure both resorts would benefit with folks spending money for lunch etc.

Just got back from a short 3 day, adult only trip to SSR. Sat at the Paddocks pool all day and read, then walked to DTD for dinner and drinks. I love SSR.

We stayed last May at SSR and in Oct at OKW and the boats were this way. DTD used to have the boat stop at Pleasure Island, but now the DTD boats only go between West Side and Marketplace. I think the SSR, OKW, and PO boats just dock at the old Pleasure Island stop. It would be more convenient to boat from SSR to OKW, but I enjoy the boat rides, so this is just part of the fun.

I really enjoy the boat rides too AirGoofy. It wouldn't be a trip without a Disney water launch excursion.

Where are the laundry rooms?

I've stayed here before but only in a grand villa and a 1 br. Now we will be in a studio. I kind of poked around the first thread, but I am going through too many here are my pictures, nice pictures, I bought this year I bought that year, welcome home, etc. to gleen any information. When I get time I will read all through that, but I'd like to do some mental planning. Also - where are the Ice machines?

The boat routes changed when the tree houses opened.

There's an ice machine in each building, on the first floor near the elevators. There's also a trash/recycling room on the first floor of each building.

Since you're staying in a studio, I'll also add (even though you didn't ask), there's a laundry room at each of the quiet pools. There's also a laundry room near the High Rocks Spring Pool (the main pool). It's next to the Community Hall.

Laundry? Check out the pool buildings, they have washers and dryers. Dont insert any money, as they are free to use, just push in the mechanism without coins inserted.

I like the combination of pool, laundry, bar at Grandstand. Makes one wish for dirty clothes!

So I'm a VWL owner and am making our first DVC stay and it happens to be at SSR this October. I know so little about the resort. Could anyone spare the time to give me some of the pros and cons. We are staying in a studio during Food and Wine, Columbus Day weekend. We really don't plan on bringing in any food, other than breakfast. I won't ask where people recommend I stay, for some unknown reason that questions frustrates me Look at the map and figure it out! LOL Also, how's the dining. I like to try new places. TIA

I honestly, was hoping for WL because of the proximity to the MK and because of the cute carriage rides around FW. DD LOVES horses, so that's a bonus at SSR. LOL. She is 3. Can someone please sell me on the idea of staying here with her?
We stayed at SSR last Christmas, it was wonderful...a little chilly than usual. Find out when the characters will be around the resort. We also visited other resorts to see the gingerbread houses, train sets and other characters. NO LINE to see Chip and Dale at AKV, a little line at Yacht Club to see Mickey and Minnie. All of them dressed up in their holiday dress.

We like SSR for little ones because there is room for them to move and not bother other guests. My DSIL loved the walkways with my little niece. She would see all the little critters (lizards, rabbits) along the paths and be totally entertained and wasn't running into other people.
