Every time I've stayed at SSR, we've requested and gotten the Grandstand Section. It makes the resort feel a bit smaller when you have a little area you think of as your own. I prefer the Grandstand quiet pool because it has the kids water play spray area, it has a pool bar (seasonal) and it has a hot tub. One little Grandstand secret... if you miss the bus, you can make it to the Springs stop before the bus arrives there. Grandstand is the first stop back from the parks. It takes an average of 9 minutes to make it from the Grandstand (1st stop) to The Springs (last stop). Its an easy walk for us. I've caught up with my missed bus many times that way.

At OKW we have always stayed in the area of buildings 53-55. I'm attached to it. I loved AKV, but the long hallways meant a parade of talking people passing by our room early in the morning and late at night. Also, we were on the 2nd floor and one time in the morning, a car alarm went off in the garage below us. DH did not hear it though...he could sleep through an elephant stampede.

I decided to use my points for August and I got into LM in the Hampton band parents room block. Now that we're only 3, we usually don't need the bigger rooms. When I had three kids coming to Disney, family suites were a pipe dream..and now that 2 kids are grown... we've got family suites! That said....I used a gezunta (yiddish alert) amount of points at Thanksgiving to secure a 2 bedroom Villa AND a studio villa for all 10 of us who were staying at SSR. I dipped into this years supply.

Where is your home resort?

Well WOOP DE DOO CASS IS BACK!!!!

And I got a pm from you and everything, I feel honored! I am sooooo happy you are back, I cannot wait for this story. And a story it always is, I just adore your family. Kira, wow she has grown into such a cutie young lady!! I feel like we've watched her grow up here.

We are leaving for Fl. in April, doing the 4 day Dream and a week at the BCV afterward. Your Dream trip report, let me just tell you, has been awesome. I bookmarked it a long time ago on my IPad and refer back to it a lot. I finally settled on an cat 8D rm 6107, with a big porthole, it should be great! So thanks so much for all you did to present all that info to us. Then! We're headed to Africa in the Fall Cass!! An 18 day safari, no kidding!! Just DH and I. Omg so excited. Anyway!! Can't wait to read every last word of this. Seriously looking forward to it, right down to every last chicken tender and Ken's sauce.

I had just enough time to think what a cutie your little one was, before I realized she was floating a million feet in the air on just a thin pane of glass. Can we say PALPITATIONS!!!

Can't wait to read more about your plans

Good mantra & trip report title.

This trip will not suck!!!

Kira's age is wonderful for Disney. Old enough to not be tantruming & young enough to fully believe in all the magic!
