the 116Ft SSR pool slide. Not quite as good as Kidani Village, but close. The rock work around the slide is a nice touch.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note about our room at Saratoga Spring. We are in a 1 bedroom unit in the Grandstand section. The Grandstands section has a very nice semi-feature pool with a kids water gun area.

The 1 bedroom unit at Saratoga Springs has some plusses and minuses. The one big plus is the bathroom is split so 2 people can get ready at the same time. It also allows for additional bathroom privacy between the bedroom and living room. The bedroom has a great king size bed. It's very comfortable. In fact, the bedroom is large. It has nice chair and desk with the bed.

The one drawback I see is the front entry way takes up too much space. I'd rather have that space for a larger kitchen or living room.

Our view isn't very good. We have a view of the parking lot out in front of the building. One of the holes of the Lake Buena Vista golf course is right behind our building. I would have much preferred a view of that than the parking lot. But, you can't have everything. Overall, I do like the room and the resort in general.

For those of you who plan on staying here in the future you need to know this resort is very spread out. You could find yourself rather far away from the feature pool and Carriage House (main building, counter service restaurant, check-in, lobby, etc). You may want to request a room close to the Carriage House. The Grandstand section is not very far away from the Carriage House either. Make sure to view the resort map prior to check-in.

The main feature pool at SSR (High Rock Spring) is also pretty nice. I prefer the pool over at Kidani Village, and even the one at Jambo house a little more; however this pool is also very nice. You can fill your mug at the pool bar which is a plus. The pool is large enough to accommodate a large crowd and there are enough chairs for everyone to use.

If anyone has any questions about the resort please let me know. :)

More to come!

June 15th Recap -

A relaxing, fun-filled day today. Hanging out at the High Rock Spring pool today was very relaxing. We stayed there for about 3 hours or so. Enjoyed the pool and all it's amenities.

Something I did not post about was we took a trip to the Beach Club to get Anna's hair braided. The Beach Club has a salon called Periwigs located near Beaches and Cream. It worked out well because we were able to enjoy one of our most favorite desserts on Disney property...The No Way Jose. And as usual it did not disappoint.

Through the magic of Disney transportation we made it over to Ft. Wilderness in time for the 5:00PM Hoop De Doo Review. This was the first time we experienced this dinner show. We found it rather humurous and the food to be ok, nothing special. The ribs and chicken were ok. The strawberry shortcake was really good though. I'd call the show a combination between screwball comedy and slapstick entertainment. I'd do this again, but not for a while. Seeing it once every 5 to 7 years would be okay with more.

We made our way over to the Magic Kingdom. We rode the Haunted Mansion, Pirates, Mickey's Philharmagic, Small World and saw the fireworks from Fantasyland. A very nice evening.

Tomorrow we plan on heading over to the Animal Kingdom in the morning and then coming back to the resort in the afternoon. We have a reservation for dinner at Ohana. It's been a while since we dined there so we thought we'd give it another try. We'll probably head back over to the Magic Kingdom after dinner.

I hope you are all enjoying the photos. It's not very time consuming to post them and what's even better is I can post them within 30 seconds. They are truly real time. I like doing it this way than the old way of bringing the pictures back to the room on my Sony camera, uploading them to my PC, then to Photobucket, and then linking them to the DIS.

More to come! :)

Good Morning -

We are out the door. A slight change in plans. We are going over to Downtown Disney to pick-up a few items. I think we may pick up some swag for the Indy DIS meet. We plan on grabbing a bite to eat at Earl of Sandwich.

Afterwards we are going to come back to the resort and take a easy for a bit before heading over to my favorite resort on property; the Polynesian Resort. We have an ADR at Ohana tonight. We figured it was time to give it another try.

EPCOT has evening Extra Magic Hours tonight. We may take the monorail or Tronorail over there. A funny park hours quirk today; the Animal Kingdom is staying open later than Hollywood Studios today without evening Extra Magic Hours at Animal Kingdom.

Disney's Hollywood Studios™
Date Park Hours
Tuesday, June 15 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Disney's Animal Kingdom® Park
Date Park Hours
Tuesday, June 15 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM


Hollywood Studios should never close at 6:00PM.
This quirk will certainly increase crowds at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT tonight. Since DHS and AK will close early most of that crowd will head to EPCOT and DHS :sad2: Not good. But, we may brave it just to soak up some atmosphere. :)

More to come!

I believe the 6pm closing is related to a private event occurring at the Studios

The SSR boat dock takes you to DTD. We decided on the boat instead of driving.

Just hit the gym. This gym is better than Kidani Village. Much larger with better and more equipment. More free weights too.

I see. That makes perfect sense. I had to clear my eyes in disbelief when I saw the Studios closing at 6:00PM.
