Thank you. I enjoy taking pictures and posting them since I know I scour the boards to find out all of the information that I can about a resort.

I too plan on trying out all of the resorts. DH wants to try BLT next.

You are so welcome. Saratoga Springs is a beautiful resort.

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.
We were so glad we were near the pool. DS had a blast at the pool.

We did not go to the parks at all this trip. We just enjoyed the resorts and did not feel like we missed a thing.

After relaxing in the room for a bit, we headed over to the Turf Club Bar & Grill.


We did not have to wait too long for a bus and in no time we were at the Turf Club after a short walk from the bus stop. Once inside, I took pictures of the hallway leading to the Turf Club.





When we arrived, it was close to 5:00 p.m. which meant the restaurant was seitching over to the dinner menu. We were still given the menu for lunch, however, since we asked to be seated as soon as possible. We perused the lunch menu and asked to look at the dinner menu as well.




We opted to order from the dinner menu and asked the CM if that was okay which, of course, it was. While we waited to be seated, we could have played a game of pool but DS was at the beginning stages of having a meltdown so DH took him to watch tv.


We did not have to wait too long to be seated. But, while we were waiting to be seated, we noticed that the ferry stop was right outside. DM commented that it would be nice to ride the ferry. It was decided that tomorrow we would catch the ferry to DTD.

Now, I usually take a picture of the food that everyone orders but we were all so hungery when the food arrived we just dug right into it. I did manage to take a couple of pictures.



The crabcakes were DELISH! And, my dad had the most tender pork tenderloin I have ever tested. Everyone was very pleased with the meal. By the time we were finished eating, DH received a phone call that DMIL & DBIL had arrived. He told them to come to the lobby and we would meet them there. DH & DS headed out first while I waited with my parents to pay the bill.

When we finally arrived in the lobby, there was DH waiting ever so patiently for us - NOT.


But, DS did not mind the wait at all. He was so busy & happy playing with a ballon that a CM had given him.


DH decided that he would ride with his brother in the car to show him how to get to the room. The rest of us took the bus back.

Up next: More of SSR.

OMG Marsha, just found your TR. I have been looking for it on the cruise thread. Glad to have finally found it. So glad that you are doing one on the cruise, and all of your vacation, but especially the cruise .

Now I have to go catch up.

So glad that you enjoyed SSR. Now that you have stayed at my home, , you can see why I said it was so beautiful. We just love it there. And you stayed in our favorite section, the GRANDSTAND! We just love that pool and the grounds and the rooms, ahhhhhhhh.

Your pictures have really helped me from missing our home resort.

But I saw where you said Corey wants to stay at BLT, which is our other home resort, well we stayed there after the Members Cruise (1st time) and LOVED IT! If you thought the 2 bedroom rooms at SSR were spacious just wait until you try that at BLT. And there were 3 bathrooms. Score! And we asked for a cheap view room, well we may have only been on the 2nd floor but had a great view of the Magic Kingdom! The girls could watch the fireworks while lying in bed. It was just awesome.

The only complaint we had was that they could have made the pool and pool area bigger for the BLT part. We walked over to the Contemporary Quite Pool area and enjoyed ourselves far better than we did at the BLT Pool. But that was just us. Small pool, lots of people = not much fun for us. However, we did like the slide at BLT pool.

Can't wait for your next update.

You are going to love the resort. I wish I had more time to explore it. Have a great trip!

Now, we will have to try BLT. When Corey was younger, he stayed at Contemporary. He called it the monorail resort when he was younger. I think he wants to relive his childhood. I am going to try to book it at the 7 month window for August after our cruise.

That is so funny. Because we stayed at the Contemporary, in the North Wing - where BLT is now - on our honeymoon (20 years ago) and said the same thing.

Great minds!

Hi Marsha!!! So glad I found your TR!!!! I have been trying to get to mine too but I had to see your thoughts of SSR - our home - we LOVE it there- actually I am missing it reading your TR because we are on a quest to try all of the DVCs after our stay at AKV next April we will only have BWV to go!!!

We stayed at BLT after the cruise but did a studio lake view - that was our first stay in a studio ever and it wasn't horrible but for the four of us - very cramped!!! It seems you mostly travel with family so definately do the 1 or 2 bedroom - I did take pics of the fireworks at the TOTWL - AMAZING!!!!!

I can't wait for your AKV part!!! I am anxious to learn all I can!!!

Hi Chris!! Hi Nikki!!! I'm finally making my way over to Marsha's trip report!

We actually did that a few years ago! We stayed there for a long weekend and only went to MK for the Pirate & Princess party. Unfortunately it poured down rain the whole night, but we still made the best of it! Got some really cute pictures of the kids in their yellow rain poncho's!


Marsha - we stayed at BLT after the cruise. It was a nice resort! HOWEVER, I advise ANYONE who plans to stay there...BE VERY CAREFUL IN THE BATHROOM AND KITCHENETTE AREAS!!! The marble floors are VERY slippery! I'm glad we didn't have our kids with us because they are accident prone and I KNOW we would have had a trip to the hospital from one or both of them slipping and splitting their head open on that marble floor! We loved the slide at the pool. And agree with Chris, the pool was somewhat small at BLT. But that slide rocks!!!!

I can't wait to read your CRUISE portion of your trip report!!!!!!!!
