    Question for all of you Turf Club Bar & Grill experts!

    I'm helping friends plan their trip. They are on the dining plan. On one night of their trip, the adults are dining at a signature restaurant while the kids do the in-room babysitting. Does anyone know if the Turf Club Bar & Grill does take-out? I was wondering if the kids could get their dinner from the Turf Club to-go and eat back at the room or outside somewhere. The adults won't want to go with them for a meal in the restaurant, since they'll be eating later at a signature restaurant. They don't want a quick service meal, since they want to use a table service credit for the kids tonight. Just wondering if this was possible? Any advice?

    Well going on my second night at SSR it is beautiful, I love it. As long as I can stay centrally located like I am now. I am in The Springs now Right by the lake between the buildings. I cant help but to wonder what the 2-story studio runs?

    The grand villa? You don't even want to ask.

    But since you did... it's 714 points a week during Magic Season, which is what we're in right now.

    I am so excited that you love it. I am a new SSR owner and We will be going this Christmas to SSR for the first time. I am curious to know which section or sections you recommend. I would like to be as centrally located so I can easily take a bus to the parks as well as convenient to dining and swimming,and take the boats to DDT.

    Thanks

    Check out this post from earlier in the thread. It has a lot of information about the resort, and FAQ #4 has a lot of pros and cons to help you decide which section would be best for your preferences.

    Sounds like Springs (or possibly Grandstand) might be your best match.

    I am in building 35 right by the bus stop literally but at the other end of the building which is fine by me. I don't hear buses from there I think it's second from the end away from bus stops. It is about 1 min walk to buses, 3 mins to pool with two yes two hot tubs, and 4 mins to main building.

    Is anyone there right now that can tell me if the gym is or will be open very soon? I know the spa is closed, but DH and I booked SSR specifically for its superior gym. We will be there April 6. I asked this on a separate thread but no one has answered. I know, who chooses a resort based on it's gym right? We aren't doing any parks this time. Just gym, pool and dining :)

    I am here right now and could take a pic now if you want of the gym sign. But last night there were people in the gym exercising. So I believe they have that back up and running.

    I wonder if anyone here saw the rumors about a big new DTD project. Check out summary of some leaked info and concept art here: WDW News Today: Leaked Concept Art & Details – “Disney Springs” Set to Replace WDW’s Downtown Disney

    The reason I mention it here is because at the very end of the article it highlights some of the key changes. Included is a "bridge connecting Village Marketplace to Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort." It appears this would be a new foot bridge over the canal that runs between Congress Park and the DTD Marketplace (just a little closer than the current road bridge).

    If these changes are true, I think it will be great for SSR owners (and DTD visitors too!).

    I was searching and can't seem to find if SSR had the rfid locks or not yet.

    Hi! I love SSR. BEen a DVC member since 2006. Our next trip is post cruise, in June. I have a question since we have a split stay. We'll be at BCV for the first 6 nights then transferring to SSR. We won't have a car, so do we need to provide our own transportation to SSR via taxi?
