    Hi Andi! Thanks for all your help. We are staying at S Springs 1bdr villa. Whats a good location to request for our villa, do we need our own cleaning supplies, and any other suggestions for our 1st time at the villas? Thank you!!!

    Hey, Brandy! It is my pleasure to answer your questions...thanks for coming back to visit me on the Moms Panel. Oh, I'm so excited about your first time in the villas -- you're going to love SSR!

    I have stayed in three different areas of Saratoga Springs Resort -- The Grandstand, The Carousel and The Springs. Of course, everyone is different and may enjoy different areas for a variety of reasons. Yet, I like to be in the center of everything. So, my favorite location has been The Springs which is right across from the main pool as well as Community Hall, Artist's Palette and the Turf Club. We stayed in the 4101-4436 building, but I think I'll request the 3501-3836 building the next time we stay there for an even more convenient location.

    You do not need your own cleaning supplies since you will have maid services (usually every fourth day for DVC members). Yet, you will definitely want to bring some laundry detergent since they only give you one load's worth in the villas, and purchasing more detergent on property can get expensive. If you'll have a car when you're there, I would consider going off property to buy groceries and supplies to stock your villa, or you can purchase some groceries at the store located in The Carriage House (check in).

    SSR has a wonderful spa located adjacent to the main pool, and my husband and I love to start off our vacation with a massage. So, we usually book back-to-back massages so that one of us can enjoy a massage while the other watches the kids by the pool. Then, we switch!

    Speaking of the pool, SSR is getting a new one in Summer 2011, and you can click here to find out more details. I have a feeling that a trip to SSR is in our future for next summer! If you have more questions, you know where to find me. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
