We just returned and stayed at SSR. We were not impressed by the resort as it did not have that “Wow” Disney factor. We rented DVC points and for the money you are spending, as Llama mentioned, you do not get daily maid service. You will receive fresh towels and linens on the 4th day and a full cleaning on the 8th (which most people only stay a week). I actually had to wash towels as by the 3rd day of taking showers, let’s not go there. A tip, grab a few extra towels from the pools for your showers in the room.
Check in went smoothly and the CM’s are very pleasant. We had requested a ground floor room in The Grandstand or The Springs. The parking lot in the Grandstand was being sealed and was closed so we had the option of a room in the Springs on the 2nd floor or a ground floor room in Congress Park. We opted for Congress Park. The walk to the Carraige House was about 5 minutes and we were in the last building closest to DTD. If we did not want to walk, we were told to take a park bus, get off at the Springs and then to return, take the DTD bus. We did not do that though.
It seemed like all the park buses came at once and then there were none for a while. The ride to the parks were very long. We decided to use the buses in lieu of driving our car. We only drove to a few resorts for the ADR’s, to TL and once to AK for the tour we had planned.
We did not eat at the Turf Club but did have breakfast at the Artist Palette. The omlets seem to swim in oil or butter so beware.
We only swam in the quiet pool in Congress Park but the main pool and the Pool at the Paddock looked really cool.
We had a two bedroom villa which was plenty of room although there was mold on the outside corner of the master shower with the wall starting to bubble. You could practically poke your finger through the wall under the bedroom window as it appeared to have water damage and the sliders were missing the bottom slats of the window decor.
Sorry for some of the negatives. Hope you find your stay better than ours.
