Hi All! Let me tell you, getting back to work is no fun. I am still in vacation mode and work will not let me enjoy it. It has been so busy I have not been able to get on the computer when I get home because I am so tired. But, I wanted to let all of you know that I am still here and I plan on doing another addition(s) to my TR this weekend.

You will enjoy SSR. We stayed in the Grandstand section and it was lovely. We were write next to the pool. I will be posting pics of SSR this weekend. I wish we had stayed longer so I could explore the resort some more.

Even though you are not a DVC owner )yet), it is never too early to learn about all you can when you become a DVC owner. And, let me tell you, this was an awesome trip!

Arrival Day at Saratoga Springs!

September 8, 2010
Vacation time is almost here! I just have to finish up at work and then I can go home. The day seemed to go by pretty fast which was a good thing. The only thing that I needed to do when I got home was to wait for my parents to arrive at my house and then load up the van. I was already packed and the bags were ready to go.

My parents finally arrived and brought dinner with them. We ate our food and began loading up the van which was a painless process (unlike our family trip last year). We definitely had a lot less stuff. Now, that the van was packed we were all set for our 6:00 a.m. departure (or so I hope).

September 9, 2010
5:00 a.m. and I am up and ready to go. The only thing that I have to do is pack the cooler with the soda, juice, and water. Oh! I also need to wake up DH. DS was already up. He woke up to go to the bathroom and his Pop Pop turned on the light to make sure he was wide awake. DH finally got out of the bed and now everyone was up. By 6:30 a.m. we were in the and on the road.

The plan was for the drivers to switch every 4 hours. However, that did not happen. DS recently became potty trained and for some reason needed to stop every 2-3 hours and Pop Pop drove the majority of time. Even with all of the potty breaks we still made good time. We reached Jacksonville/Orange Park, FL close to 8:00 p.m.

The plan was for my parents & my family to stay in a local hotel but my friend wanted us to stay at her house. My parents decided to stay at the hotel and we stayed at our friend's house. DS had a really good time playing with his God-sister.

September 10, 2010 - Arrival Day at SSR!
We left Orange Park, FL around 10:00 a.m. We were on our way.






But, of course we had to stop for a potty break. Soon, however, we were seeing signs to let us know we were in the happiest place on earth.





Up Next: Our first day at Saratoga Springs...

I must say, my dad's van is quite comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. DS loves riding in Pop Pop's van.

We Arrive at Saratoga Springs

As I left off the last time, we were so excited about finally arriving at WDW! I was amazed about how beautiful the grounds of Saratoga Springs were. I did not realize that it encompassed a golf course. Anyway, we made our way to the Carriage House to check-in to our two-bedroom villa. Of course, we had to take pictures.







Check-in was a breeze since I did online check in. There was no wait! I just walked up, the CM welcomed me home, and gave me my folder with our room keys, hotel information, and DVC related materials. Plus, she told me that our room was ready! She also made sure that DH's mother & brother's room was near ours. What great service! Before we went back to the van, my mother and I took the time to explore the Carriage House & take pictures.











After a little exploring, DM & I made our way back to the van and headed over to Room 8335 which was located in the Grandstand section of the resort.

Room 8335

I have to mention again that the grounds of Saratoga Springs were beautiful. My DM kept commenting on how green and beautiful the grass was. And, can I just say the room was beautiful too. As the saying goes, "A picture is worth 1000 words" so here are a few pictures so I will not have to come up with thousands of words.




DS loves elevators, so I had to take a picture of the elevator doors.


The light fixture outside of our room.


Welcome home.


As soon as we entered the room, this is what we saw:


When we turned right we entered the little hallway to the second bedroom






The kitchen and living room is to the left of the entrance.






Can you find the hidden Mickey?

More pics of our room

Did I mention this room was spacious. From the kitchen, there is a closet with the washer & dryer.


Once we passed the closet with the washer & dryer, we entered the Master bathroom & bedroom.




Of course, I had to explore the balcony.


Our view:




And, I had to have some mother & son time.

Great pictures. SSR looks really nice. Thanks for sharing. I don't see too many pictures of the resort/villas.

Have not stayed here and am still on my plan to try them all

The grounds do look beautiful. Thanks for sharing all the pictures. They are worth 1000 words; we haven't stayed at Saratoga yet, so I appreciated seeing the units.

Beautiful Pictures!

I love SSR and I agree the grounds and resort are just gorgeous!! I was there Labor Day weekend and was so impressed with all the landscaping and varieties of flowers on my morning walks. Love the music they play in the common areas, jazzy and relaxing

Your room looks great! I was in the GS section also but in the first bldg in front of the GS Pool.

Saratoga is one of my favorite resorts. We could just stay there and not even go to the parks.
