OK, I've finally finished all 96 pages! Even though I was hesitant, these 96 pages have gotten me excited about staying there! Especially since DH is looking for a quiet, relaxing resort - he doesn't like the parks.

It looks like CP is the most popular area? That being the case, are we likely to get Springs or Grandstand, which we've already requested? We're not DVC; paying cash for the reservation.

Since we're paying cash, do we get mousekeeping every day? I know we would at "hotel-type" DVC places; just not sure since SSR is all DVC.

Also, I know that AP and Turf Club take TiW. Do the QS places at the pools also take it?

Thanks again!

We have requested Grandstand all 3 times and have always received it!

However, we may need to venture out next stay and try something else!!
Paddocks area has the great new pool that just opened this summer!!!

WIth a cash reservation you will get Mousekeeping everyday!
Not sure about your last question though! Sorry, never tried our TIW there!

I don't usually think to ask at QS locations, but thought the Paddock Pool Grille might because AP is on the TIW list. (Didn't figure out that little tidbit until our 2nd meal at AP when I saw someone using theirs.) Unfortunately, when I asked the cashier at the Grille, she told me they offer/accept no discounts.

For breakfast, the menu is pretty close to AP. If you don't mind the walk, it's probably worth it to grab your TIW discount there.

For lunch, though, their menu is unique. We really enjoyed both the fish sandwich and the salad.

My roommate -- a coffee fanatic who is infrequently seen without a cup of coffee in his hand -- was ecstatic to see a pool refill station with a coffee dispenser.

I got mine in January of 2010 calling at 11 months for the first seven nights and then a week later for the last three.

We got a THV for 9 nights at 7 months out, we're going next week, woohoo!!!! I'm more excited than my kids, lol. There were a few THV's left but only 2 were available for 9 nights so 11 months should be no problem! Good luck!

Thank you as well..next week?! Have fun!!! There is so much history to those THV's..and what a nice addition to us SSR owners

We are planning a DIY small scale VR Renewal in the distant future and "just" trying to figure things out..(saving $$$$ for the private catered event afterwards )
Thanks for the feedback, thinking I should be fine with one or the other at 11 mths..!!!

For those of you that have stayed in the THV, are the bunk beds large enough for adults? Knowing that can be relative, how tall could our "adult" be?? How wide are the beds (full size twin?), could an adult sit up on the bunks without hitting their heads? On a different note, are there reading lamps by the bunks? Guess I need a tour!!

Think Will Ferrel in the movie Elf. I don't think even a young adult could sleep in the bunk beds. They are definitely not full sized twin beds.

Funny visual...but geez, I wish they were built to accomodate a small adult or larger child....
