SSR room 1145 - 1BR suite - second from the end of the building on the ground floor. Patio facing the Crab House ship in Downtown Disney. We requested a ground floor room for wheelchair access, but otherwise this is not a handicapped room. No problem there, that's what we wanted. (My wife is a cancer patient on heavy medication. She can walk, but tires quickly.) We are Boardwalk owners, so this was our first stay in SSR, we made the rez on 3 weeks notice and took what we could get. Nice room as compared to Boardwalk. Same basic layout, except for the extra split in the bathroom for a private toilet room. That worked out nicely as this was our first trip sharing a bathroom with other family. Parking was, well interesting. The place was pretty full, probably because of spring break season. There was 1, yes only 1, handicapped parking space in the lot, and that was for two big buildings. We had the space on Thursday and Friday. The rest of the weekend it was taken by other guests before we got to it. The morning we left, we had the normal spot right next to the handicapped one. We'd have used the ramp, but someone on staff decided to park one of those monstrous golf-cart-bus-things in the middle of it all morning, effectively blocking the access. I was not impressed. Walking to Downtown Disney was pretty good, and convenient. The down side is after being in parks all day, you just don't want to walk any more than you have to. The Congress Park area is far from the boat launch... so much so that it was probably closer to walk to DTD than to the boat for DTD. Friday night my Wife and Sis-in-Law decided to retire early, and I went out on my own to check out the property. It was 9ish at night and the weather all weekend was cool (65ish days, 50s night, windy). The pool was, of course, deserted. Open and pretty, but deserted. There was a crowd of folks in the hot tub, having a good time. The cafe/shop was open and doing a little business. I figured out, after a lot of walking and NO obvious directional signs, how to find the boat launch behind everything. It was deserted, barely lit, and only appeared to be open in that the gate was not closed and locked. I waited maybe 5 minutes for a boat, saw one go by without coming close, and gave up on it. I ended up driving over to DTD that night just to find something to do, SSR was too quiet for me. I suppose that's one of the big reasons we own Boardwalk. We only managed to get to two of the parks with my wife tired and cold from the cooler weather. Handicap access to Epcot was a breeze. Plenty of spaces, easy access. No problem getting help on any of the few rides we took (including Soarin'). MGM was less impressive. Granted, it's a busy time of year, and we didn't arrive until nearly noon. The handicapped lot was full, so I dopped the ladies off and went back to normal parking. They keep the front few spaces nearest the trams for special access, so I was able to park the car right next to the tram for quicker pickup later. That was nice. Considering the crowd, they did what they could. Kudos. All told, it was a nice trip, even with the few hiccups. (When is a trip to Disney a bad thing, anyway? ) We'd stay at SSR again and be happy with it if it's all that was left open, but I doubt it would ever be our first choice. Just too quiet and remote for my taste. I wish the weather had cooperated and let us go swimming, the pool did look very nice. Cheers!
