A Bloody Mary in the morning...
Scott, we need to travel together! LOL

So, I know this is premature, but when's the next trip?

Bloody Mary's are good but I prefer a Mimosa in the AM.

Hi Scott! Actually saw you and Vinnie leaving Art of Animation food court. We were coming in from the back you were going towards where check in is. You were kind of far away and I felt silly to go running after you.

OK I am jealous. You started this before me, barely, and are already on page 3. I only have 3 replies and you aren't one of them. Of course I have a one day head start on my trip.

Update 3

I forgot to mention a story about the trip down. While we were flying we had a smooth flight until the Carolinas. Then we were told to put seat belts on because a few rough patches were coming. Okay. Mine never comes off. 5 minutes later, Robert the flight attendant gets on the speaker and says to sit down and buckle up as it is about to get very extremely bumpy. I got so nervous. I hate flying. The bumps lasted less than a minute and it was nothing. I was so mad.

Okay now let’s carry on.
We were off the bus and on our way inside. I love walking into the lobby, so pretty. I had done online check in and requested “near a pool” and “Grandstand section”. On the way down we discussed we also wanted a higher floor. I forget the name of the CM that helped us but I think we made him nervous. He gave us our package and showed us on the map where we would be and the room was not ready. I asked what floor and was told the first. “No”. I said. I asked if we could get a room higher up and he made a phone call. This call took about 10 – 15 minutes but we did get a room in the Grandstand by the pool and guess what? The room is available now. Vinny could not understand this. Anyway the room was in a section not yet renovated but we didn’t care.
We went to the room. Put our carry-ons in there and relaxed. Around 11:30 we headed out.
Did we go to a park or to DTD?

A very happy man as we walked.


This is where the first shock came from Vinny. As we walked he said it was so long since we had been there. I said “6 months” and he said it felt longer. Yep he has the Disney bug.
Saratoga is themed after Saratoga NY and so the resort has a horse racetrack feel. I love it.


I see the balloon is up and working again. Will I be able to get on it at night?


Main pool at SSR.


We walked by this. We will back later in the day for this.


We opted for DTD. Get a quick bite and look around. Looking out from the boat dock at SSR.


Looking from one of the dock toward the loading area.


Vinny broke out in a rash. We think it was from shaving.


Our boat has arrived.


“Welcome Home” sign backwards. LOL. I thought it looked good.


Then of course I had to take it from the front. LOL


Passing others along the way. I love this way to get somewhere at Disney. Slower but so relaxing.


Looking over at SSR. I believe this is where Congress Park begins. Also the area I saw a black snake go across the path the first time we stayed here.


I have never eaten at this Planet Hollywood.


We still have not made it over here to see this show. One day.


Looking towards the “market place” area.


One day I will rent a boat just to motor around.


The balloon was up. This is the new balloon. It has new characters and they are taking more safety procedures towards it. The way it can sway is SCARY. More on that later.


And we have made it.


I think this is a good place to stop.

Up next,

Spending time at DTD.
