DH, his parents, and I will be staying at this resort in November. Wow, the shot of the swans is absolutely stunning! I remember seeing some other pics with them in the lake, thanks for sharing this one!

Beautiful pictures. I am torn and maybe you all can help. We will be going Dec. 25-Jan. 2 and I can either stay at a 1 BR Villa at SSR or a regular room in the Garden Wing (not main tower) at the Contemporary. I am afraid with the crowds the monorail will be the way to go, but being a horse girl, and loving the look of SSR, I'm not sure what to do now? I'm afraid to rely mainly on the buses during such a crazy busy week there. Can you help?

Carriage House - soooooo very pretty!


Just outside of Artist's Palette




There are small drawing easels on various tables around AP. Kids (or kids at heart!) can draw a picture on them and hang them in the entry way to AP. It was always fun to see what the "featured art" was each time we walked into AP.


More of the main pool area












The splash area was cute, but not on while we were there. Thankfully my little guy didn't know the difference, he was just excited to see Donald Duck!






The BEAUTIFUL view from Studio #1301






Fixture above the table/chairs in the Studio


In the entryway


Kitchenette


Queen size bed


Near the Springs bus stop

This is our home resort and we've stayed here 3 times. It's beautiful and I can't say enough about it. I love the gym a lot. We like to stay in the Paddock and walk accross the bridge to the main building with the big pool and community center.

We leave in 1 day and these pictures are making me so homesick. Can't wait to get there.

brookelizabeth -- Wow -- thanks for all the pics. June will be my first visit and it's great to see all the details you've included. (Guess I won't need to post when I get back!).
Did you stay in both a studio and a 1BR? Now I need to read your trip report.

No problem! Both DH and I are shutterbugs.
We did stay in both a 1 bed and a Studio - the majority of the stay was in the 1 bed, just one night in the Studio.

I forgot to post it earlier, but I also did a video tour of the 1 bed:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bHso9NeUB0

There are some comments on my TR about the resort, and more pics. The walk to DTD from Congress Park is fantastic. The views along the waters edge is beautiful. It really is a stunning resort. I wasn't too fond of the HIKE from Congress Park to the Carriage House (esp since a couple days I ended up doing it several times!), but if you are aware of that and prepare for it (and the weather will be warmer!), it's not so bad.

I cannot say enough good things about Studio #1301. STUNNING views, very fresh and bright - we liked it better than the 1 bed in some ways!

Balcony was great!
The closest I get to "camping" is the campfire!
