    Thats a shame. It was the other way around oddly enough when we were just there. The GF spa was closed and guests were using SSR. We havent used the GF but understand it is a similar quality. Hope it works out for you. You could always sneak in a 3 night cruise on the disney Dream. We did a last minute deal got a really good price even kept out room at SSR whilst on it. The ship had a lovely spa! Expensive way around it though lol. Worth every penny!

    Hi everyone! My DH and myself are thinking about adding another small contract and we are looking at SSR as our 2nd home resort (we own at AKV now)

    Can everyone tell me what they love about SSR? I would love some opinions from some loyal fans :goodvibes

    We own at SSR, BLT, & BWV. We like BLT & BWV for the close park proximities. We like SSR for the relaxation, the resort style, and proximity to DTD. And, one day we hope to stay at THV and use that booking window to get it.

    Hi! Me and DW have two contracts for SSR because we love it so much. We love the laid back atmosphere, being close to downtown disney, being able to park outside the room blocks ( I am disabled ) , its flat and easy to get around, there are some lovely pools with zero entry, it has a spa, there is plenty of choice as each section for example the paddock, the springs etc offers differing strengths and weaknesses. It has a full service restaurant ( surf and turf ) , we like to dine both in and out of disney and like its location to the outside restaurants such as the olive garden, applebees etc. hth

    Hey guys! Need some advice please!

    How warm are the pools at SSR in the winter months? We are going early November and heard they are really cold. We went in August last year and one of our favourite things was the warm pools.

    Please help! :blush:

    The pools are heated, but not to the point where they're warm. It really just takes the edge off. There are always the hot tubs, too, which are nice and toasty. Of course, what you really need to worry about is when you get out.

    Thankyou! So is the water noticeably cooler than summer months? Or pretty similar?

    The water is cooler than summer, but we haven't found it to be too cold as long as the day temps are at least in the 70's.

    We do find the water to be very warm in the summer, almost unpleasant.

    I can tell you, that my 10 days there in Oct the air temps were 45-80. :eek:

    I thought the pool was 68-70. No more, no less.

    you wont cook in the pool, but it may seem chilly.

    hope I did not make more confusion...............:confused3

    We started out first SSR (first DVC) homestay yesterday. So far we are happy with the resort. Although, we really haven't explored it; arrived, unpacked, hit MK, crashed. We are in CP room 1114. That's ground floor, last building, next to trail to DTD. I requested CP and that is what we got. Thank you CM for honoring that request; nfext time I'll also request DTD view. While our room is nice (nothing broken/missing) there is no view. Well...we have a view of the "woods;" no DTD, no balloon. The room is renovated, has the new RFID locks. Quiet location.

    DD wants to go to Universal today...kicking myself that we didn't plan ahead and buy discounted tickets. Where does that park get off charging so much, don't they know they aren't Disney, not even close. Oh, perhaps that is a discussion for a different forum. :cool2:

    Check out FAQ #7b in this thread. There's a link to a room diagram.
