All checked in. Glad the "bumpy episode" in the flight didn't last too long!

That's crazy how none of your requests were in the first room, but then you got EXACTLY what you wanted in the room...and it was ready

An OT funny story...we owned at SSR (when it was brandy new) and we hunted for that boat to DTD forever never found it...found it on the way back at least...yup we WALKED to DTD...and I am NO athlete..must have been Disney Magic that got me there Our kiddos loved the pool, and we really liked SSR! We sold our points after we "outgrew" them (we only had 200 points, we were a family of 4 then, not 7 )

Sorry back to Scott's show

DTD is perfect for check in day....OH BOY...no more October trips

Waiting for more...

I love the boat to DTD also! It is relaxing! We usually head to DTD the first day we arrive and have a nice dinner that night. Nice start to the trip!

me too. I get scared flying. LOL
the 2 requests were met in the first but when I asked about the higher floor that is what held us up but we only requested it when we got there.
Funny story about points being that also comes later in the trip.
It is a nice way to spend the first day.
Well no more week long trips.

Great start to your report, we have never been to SSR so it is so nice to see the pictures.

Vinny looked so happy in the picture, I do believe he does have the Disney bug, you have done well my friend .

Why no more week long trips in October? Just curious.

Thank you.
You should see about renting points there one day. Grandstand is great. Close to restaurant and the first pick up and first drop off on the bus.

he has switched over. LOL

it was so busy. Even the cm's said they could not believe it was October and where did everyone come from.

That plane announcement would scare me. I love SSR, so much nicer than OKW, the boat ride to downtown Disney is one of my favorite things about SSR.

I am going to be here for this one.
I thought I would be able to be on the computer the last couple of months, but I hurt my ankle Zip Lining in WI Dells. My ankle started swelling, every time I sat down in front of the computer.

Your Title of the this TR should be, "I spotted Waldo", I mean Scotty and Vinny!


Plan a trip for April-I just got the okay to add some days before my dh convention. April 13-21st.

Of course your wake up happened that way! LOL. Never trust a natural wake up.

No shame in having a Bloody Mary at 8:20am. I thought that's what they were for?

It always feels like I haven't been to Disney in forever when I return, even if I was only there the month before. That truly is the Disney bug. Glad Vinny caught it.

The best thing about Saratoga Springs is the proximity to DTD.

I love SSR! We stayed there in 2008 and that was such a great trip. We were in Congress Park in a bottom floor room facing the water, and every time I see someone post a picture of SSR taken from DTD or the water, I always look for our room.

I saw that you had started this and read your first post the other day but didn't have time to post then.

I would have been nervous with that announcement on the plane, too, it's like they got everyone worked up for nothing.

I'm glad you got your room request. Loved SSR when we stayed there in 2011, we were in Congress Park. I am SOO happy that there is a new Balloon!! Now I have another chance to get on it!

Can't wait for more!

It scared me but I was more mad that it was nothing. SSR is newer. I like the tropical feel of OKW.

April is a possibility. We shall see.

Ain't that the truth.
I fully agree. They are a morning drink.
It does feel that way. I am just shocked he feels that way but so happy he does.
Yes. I also think it is a gorgeous resort.

it really is a nice resort. You should go and visit one day.
Yes there is. They never made an announcement that I saw but it is there and working.

We stayed there but we were facing the bus stop. Congress Park is really nice but not peaceful like Grandstand. CP is good if you want to walk to DTD.

Welcome.
He did. I should have filed a complaint about him but I didn't. Flying is nail biting enough without talk like that. LOL
The new balloon is bigger and better.
