Today I was confirmed into a 2br week at Saratoga Springs in January.....the trade was initially confirmed using my 2br ski week at SMV. To make things even better, I when i was on the phone with the II guy, I asked about switching the week over to another week I have deposited with II.....a week at Tahoe Beach and Ski club that I paid $100 for including closing costs for on ebay, usage was supposed to start in 2010, but it turns out that the 2008 week was still available and the 2008 mf had already been paid. He did it! So I managed to trade a week that cost me $100 to own, and no maintenance fee into a 2br at DVC!!! I must celebrate all my timeshare victories as they ease the pain of my initial pricey starwood developer purchase!!!

Very nice, especially with switching the II weeks you had on deposit.

We own at SSR also. It is a large resort, but is very nice. When you get a chance, call and put in a room request. If you want to be close to the main buildings ask for The Springs Section or the first two buildings of the Grand Stand. The Congress Park section has views of Downtown Disney, which can be nice. Do not stay in the Carousel section, unless you have a rental car and do not car about a pool.

Anything you want to know about Disney, DVC or Saratoga Springs......just ask.

Congratulations. Glad you were able to use that 2008 week. We own at SSR and it has really grown on me. I personally like the Grandstand section - if you get the first few buildings it's a fairly close walk to the main pool and Grandstands has a very nice pool of its own with interactive water features for the kids and a refillable mug station - :)
