June 12th Recap -

Our day started early. We arrived at Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekend activities at 8:15AM. Instead of hitting the Star Wars activities right away we opted to take a couple rides on Toy Story Mania. The crowd was thick; however, we were able to get fastpasses and jump into the stand-by line within minutes.

We really enjoyed the Star Wars activities today. Our primary goal was to get autographs and pictures with the Disney Star Wars characters. We also wanted to see the Star Wars parade. Mission accomplished! I was looking forward to the Hyperspace Hoopla. We were about 5 rows back from the stage, but the crowd was so tight we couldn't see over anyone. We decided to go to the back where it was safer. Believe it or not the view from the back was better than the view 5 rows rom the stage. I really enjoyed the show. It's certainly something you don't see everyday.

We took a ride on Tower of Terror, saw an American Idol show, and watched Muppet Vision 3D. The new digital film has really made the picture noticably sharper. American Idol was okay, but i'm always left with wondering if I should go back and watch it again. It was nice to cool off and relax while watching the show.

We all enjoyed our lunch at Mama Melrose. I had a wonderful Disney filet. The service was very good and the rest of the food was terrific. I've not had a bad meal at Mama Melrose. It seems very consistant and today was no exception.

We still have one counter service credit left on our dining plan. I'm heading back over to the Artist's Pallette to pick something up and bring it back to the room. Heck...We can put it in the refridgerator and eat it tomorrow. No way I'm letting that go to waste.

Tomorrow we plan to sleep in a bit and then maybe head out to the pool. We have a lunch ADR at Teppen Edo in the Japan Pavillion at EPCOT. We'll spend the rest of the day in EPCOT.

More to come! :)

It's almost the afternoon, but I still need a shot of coffee. Not what I was hoping for, but I'll take it.

June 13th Recap -

Another great day today. We slept in this morning and felt great going to EPCOT around Noon. The park wasn't too busy today. Most of the wait times were reasonable. Our mission was to tour World Showcase and maybe catch a few attractions in Future World.

We had lunch at Teppan Edo. We really, really enjoyed it. You really can't beat it when the food is prepared right in front of you. It's cooked fresh to order. Our cook was wonderful. He was interactive and a pleasure to speak with. All 3 of us give it a big thumbs up.

The Bee Gees tribute band was good. I wouldn't say they were great, but good. I enjoy the Bee Gees music so this was a real treat for me. I didn't really grow up in the 70s, but for some reason I find their music enjoyable. We saw the 7:00PM and 8:15PM shows.

Another great Illuminations show tonight. That show never seems to get old.

Tomorrow we plan to hit the Saratoga Springs main pool. Afterwards we are headed to Ft. Wilderness for the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Review dinner show. It's one of the longest running dinner shows in America. We are looking forward to it. Once we've finished the show we'll take the boat over to the Magic Kingdom for the rest of the evening.

More to come! :)

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!
