You're welcome. I was happy to do it. Even though I'm not buying at SSR, I am a true SSR lover. It's just that we are a small family and would never want to pile up with a bunch of friends or family in a THV, so buying at SSR gives me no home resort advantage. The other resort I really love is BWV and since we travel in October, then I'd need home resort advantage to get in there due to it's popularity during F&W. My ideal vacation would be a split stay between BWV & SSR!

Anyway, thank you for letting me be a part of your group. I Saratoga!!

Very helpful photos -- thanks you! Looks like it's going to be a nice improvement. (And I like your user name -- we're big Figment fans, and miss seeing him at Epcot as a meet and greet character [back to Dreamfinder days, and the large version that has alas disappeared]).

Now FF, you do know that there's no minimum group size for the THV, right? Our family of 4 is staying 5 nights in a studio, so we can stay the next 6 in a THV. Cheaper than doing all 11 in a 1BR!

This is what we did for the first 5 yrs. DW and I would go March,May and Oct. and always at SSR. Then the 3 DGC were due all around the first of Feb. 2009 so we skipped the March trip the last 2 years. Now we are back to 3 trips a year but they are now a bit more crowded on 2 of the trips. The 3 of them are SSR veterans already Got to love SSR and DVC

A good idea. I did not like the split stays - too much packing/ unpacking.

Howdy y'all!!! Signing on......
We are recent DVC owners at AKL and SSR. In the last week we went from having a 1 B/BWView at BWV to AKL SView, to SSR studio (thanks to stupid blizzard). We had to downsize room (one DD cant go-nursing school) and then change dates AGAIN due to youngest DD school adding dates to school year to make up for yucky snow days. We loved SSR when we were here in 08. SSR actually was a motivator in buying DVC! Anyways, we will now be there from 6/23-6/30. Are we seriously going to miss the new pool? Any chance of early opening? Will High Rock pool be open? I read a few pages back that that pool is closing for rehab, really?? Why on earth at beginning of summer would they close a main pool without new pool open?? Grrrr- hope I read that wrong. I put in a request for Springs this time...Hows springs? Whats in that area?? Thanks

The Mousesavers newsletter of today just said they were going to not heat the High Rock Spring pool from 2/28/11-3/4/11.

Awesome pics FindingFigment! I can't wait until the new pool area is done! SSR always has something special in the works.

I thought I read that the Paddock pool was closed to the middle of June. But, I may have misread it.

~ June 20 is the scheduled opening. Disney is famous for the "soft openings" of featured attractions, but without water, this one may be hard to dive into!

Anybody want to bet that the week before, a towel will appear on a lounge to save the seat? You can never be too early.
