Never been to VWL, but staying there in October. I love SSR. It is a very relaxing resort. The one con I would give it would be the bus time trips to the park, because of where it is located. However, the pros are the main pool (Springs) with the movie nights. Also, there are several private pool locations (Congress Park, Grandstand, and Paddock). The grounds are beautiful, and there is easy access to tennis courts and golf course. The big pro is the trip to DTD - by boat ride or walk. The view of DTD from Congress Park is pretty cool as well. The Artist Pallet is decent QS, and the Turf Club is really good - probably the best Prime Rib I have had (including non-Disney property).

Ah, another round! I was on page one of the first SSR thread and love that resort just as much now as I did then! We also own at BLT--and I like the idea of owning and two very different style resorts. But yes, we ADORE SSR.

I like the combination of pool, laundry, bar at Grandstand. Makes one wish for dirty clothes!
Okay - so maybe I should request the Grandstand? Are they by the quiet pools also?

Thanks for the pics. We're checking in this Saturday after an overnight stay in Tallahasse. It will be our first time in a 2BR for our family of five and the teenagers are excited about the vanity space lol.

This sounds like an incredible good time!

We're coming for our first time to SSR in July. Can anyone suggest a grocery store or Super Target or something to hit along the way from the airport? I think I'd prefer to stop along the way vs. check-in then leave again. Thanks!

We always go to the super walmart on I-4 that is about 10 minutes from SSR. That's why we love SSR's location. We can get off campus really easily and pick up things we need and come right back.

Thanks for sharing the pictures! This will be our first time home since we bought in 2004. We have requested the grandstand area. How long (minute wise) is the walk to the Community hall? My kids love the Community Hall at AKV (our other home). Does anyone have a picture of the Community hall or can I find that in the old thread?

What would be the easiest way for us to get to the Marketplace from the Grandstand?

We are pondering renting a car for this trip. I thought a while back that I read of one of the DTD hotels that had a rental car place in it. Does anyone know which one it is or even if there is one? We just want it for 2 days.

I think that's it for now. I am sure that I will have more questions prior to our trip in October.

Thanks!

The walk from Grandstand is less than 5 minutes (about 2 city blocks) . . . past the pool, up the little hill and you are standing at Bell Services beside the main entrance. A little further you find High Rock spriongs Pool. Beside the pool is the community hall. Grandstand is a great place to be . . first bus stop, great pool, nice snack bar & drink station, close to the main facility.

Sorry, can't answer for the car rental - we have never needed a car, we have always used Disney transportation and never felt a need to leave the World.

Have a great time.

I was at the World over the last weekend, and while there got to experience the new Characters in Flight balloon. For those of you not fearful of heights and haven't done it yet - it's AWESOME!! Great to be able to see all of WDW, and other stuff too if you choose to turn around (I really didn't).

Here are a few views of our lovely SSR from the balloon.


Going up


Just for you DiznyDad...the wonderful rocking chairs at Congress Park


And another
