For those that like SSR...which section do you prefer

and why? We are going to be staying there next week for 4 nights after staying at BLT for 4 nights. We won't have a car so we will be relying on buses. We loved GS for the bus stops...first on, first off. We liked Congress Park our first trip for close proximity to DTD. Is the new pool area nice at the Paddocks? Thanks!!!

Very much enjoyed the Paddock pool! Had no problems getting a seat by the pool at all. Wasn't crazy about the walk from Congress Park though, but I wasn't crazy about Congress Park either. I probably would have been happier had I not spent all of those points on a GV and hand a beautiful view of a tree, but that's another story. Next time we stay there I'm going to try for the Springs again just to be close to both of the theme pools and the Community Center for my kids.

Well I was going to say Congress Park cause that is our favorite area, close to DTD and we love the view of the waterway!! But we also love Grandstand, stayed in that area quite a few times and liked that as well, we really dont mind the walk..The resort does have beautiful grounds now that its grown in some! The new pool is nice, here are some pics, (not mine but found them on the web)http://http://allears.net/acc/g_Padd...gaSprings.html

Is the Springs close to the new pool? Isn't the Springs the last on the bus stop?

Have only stayed in the Springs area and we loved it. Close to High Rocks pool (and drink refill station), Artists Palette, Turf club, Arcade, Spa, Main Bus stop, and Boat dock to DTD.

We never had problems with the bus being full, but I could see that during a busy time that Grandstand would be better if depending on Busses. I'd definitely recommend the Springs area.

Congress Park. DTD views, quiet pool, walkway to DTD, etc. It's so gorgeous and peaceful.

Bus stops are Grand Stand, Carousel, Paddocks, Congress Park, and then Springs. We stayed in CP 2 weeks ago in a reconditioned room with DTD view. Quiet and scenic - we enjoyed it. I think next time I would try the Springs because of the access to High Rocks and Paddock pools. So while I don't know if it's my favorite, it's my next request!
Have a fab time!

We love the Grandstand section the best. It has it's own quiet pool, short walk to High Rock Pool, Artist Palette and Community Center, has a golf couse view and first on and off for the bus.

Stayed at Congress Park with DDs 18 and 22 in March. Loved that the bus stop was right next to our builiding and we could walk to DTD.

We liked the Springs, loved being close to dining/pool/gym and the Carriage House

I like Congress Park because I think the view of DTD is beautiful at night. I even like seeing it from the pool, and the busses were convenient for us when we stayed there.

We've only stayed in the Grandstand area, but are trying Congress Park next trip, just for a change.

A lot of you mentioned the Grandstand and it's quiet pool - we loved that.

I assume that Congress Park has a quiet pool also. Can someone confirm or deny that?

Thanks guys,
Kathy
