    Here in the Sunshine State. Staying at Saratoga Springs on our first DVC stay and it is brilliant. We had requested a high floor overlooking DTD and that is exactly what we got.
    This is the view from our villa.

    Having a lazy Sunday after two late nights at Epcot and MK. Contrary to other reports I have seen, the buses have been regular apart from Thursday afternoon when all the buses were taken out of service due to a security scare. Disney dealt with this in their usual efficient way and everything was soon back to normal. :goodvibes

    Hiya.

    What section are you in at SSR.

    We are due to check in in just short of 3 weeks and was considering requesting the Grandstand section as I hear the pool in that area is great for children but would welcome been based close to DTD.

    We have a number or ressies at restaurants in DTD and would love to be able to walk to and fro without needing the car :)

    How hot is it? We will be arriving at this time next year.
    How is the humidity? That was what really wiped us out last year.

    We are in Congress Park which we asked for as well as a high floor which we also asked for. The room numbers start at at 1101 -1436 and the other building which should have good views the room numbers start 2101 - 2436. These are the nearest to DTD if you want to walk. There is a pool with a play area for children.
    The Grandstand is the furthest away to walk to DTD but it is the first stop for the buses. The tempratures are in the low 90s and it has cllouded over. Will post pictures of the pool area later. :)

    Oh no, I can't stand the humidity, it absolutely wipes me out. Let's hope it clears soon for you.

    Some of the rooms at the grandstand are near the pool area and these rooms are also close to the main pool/dining and Check in etc. There is a ferry service which runs to DTD and this is behind the Check in building.

    Hi, it was about 7pm when these were taken, still hot though :thumbsup2
    Just got back from AK and now getting ready to go to Epcot, really glorious weather although there was a heavy shower earlier, but that has gone.
