im new around here. dh and i are going to WDW next month and are staying at SS in a studio. we are not DVC members. we decided to on a trip to FL last minute and SS and FW cabins were our options(only thing available for our whole stay), we picked SS. we have stayed at the BWI(2004) and YCR(2006) and LOVED both for so many reasons, one being the location. however this trip(even before booking) i had said that i wanted to try a new place to see what other resorts were like. i did stayed at the CR and All star sports in 2003. i liked the CR and the all star was ok but had a lot of groups if teens and college students sports teams for my liking. i have read some reviews about the SS being very large and not as "disney" as some of the others resorts. one thing we look fwd to in our trips to disney is all the disney touches. i have read that there will be some conventions, a dance group and cheerleading group during our stay, which is also superbowl and mardi gras time too. will this effect the crowds at the park?? tips, suggestions etc in regard to the SSR would be great (sorry if this has been asked before). this is not our 1st trip to disney nor our last. we LOVE the parks but also enjoy some relaxing and exploring on/off property as well.
