After two stays at SSR, I either need a new map or perhaps it just isn't for me. The first time out (3 years ago), the buzz on this board was to stay in the Grandstand. It was supposedly close to all the action (not sure what the action was, but that's what I read). Looking on a map, I guess I can see why people would want the rooms labeled 8501-8836 or 8101-8436 since they seem to be right next to the Grandstand pool and not too far from the main pool by the main building. However, we ended up in the 9501-9836 section, which was basically in a different zip code. This time, I figured that I would enjoy the trip more if I was able to take advantage of the advertised easy access to Downtown Disney. When I was on the phone with Member Services, I asked for the best location for Downtown Disney access and was told Congress Park. I had heard of a bridge and figured that I would be right next to it. After exploring a bit, I am now under the impression that the easy access to downtown Disney involves walking on the outskirts of the property along the road. We were in the 2501-2836 building, which was nowhere near that path. Here is my question --- why no love for the Springs section? If I am looking at the map correctly, it is right across from the main pool and restaurants. That would seem like the ideal location to me. Isn't the boat near there, too? Also, aside from walking out by the main road, is there another bridge crossing over to Downtown Disney? And if so, which section is it in? I know I probably sound like a lazy person with the complaints about distances, but that isn't the case. In fact, I am the type of person who always walks when given the chance between walking and driving...or walking up steps rather than taking an elevator. When we stay at the Boardwalk, we always walk to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. I guess my complaints about SSR stem from the fact that it just doesn't seem like it should be the same amount of points per night as the other resorts. On top of that, given its size, I feel that there should be an internal bus at the very least considering the Fort Wilderness campground has several of them. Perhaps splitting it into TWO separate resorts (like Port Orleans) would have been better, simply to give the impression of it being smaller. Something just doesn't seem right about it.
