    Cool Transportation from SSR

    We are heading down in July, and am deciding between OKW and SSR. My main worry is getting around. for the first time in a long time, I will not have a car available to me. I know bus travel takes forever sometimes, especially during the summer, but I was told that getting around from SSR is relatively easy. Can anyone give me some idea of what I am in for? I am used to driving to different resorts and taking the monorails and boats.
    Will I be able to do my normal things? or should I see about renting a car?

    You will be FINE!! Renting a car in my opinion is so unnecessary when staying on property. If you are at SSR (we are DVC owners there), you will be surprised at the efficiency of the buses. There are 3 different "internal" stops wthin SSR. Sounds like alot but, it really isn't. If you are staying at the Treehouses, there is an internal bus that goes from treehouse stops to the SSR carriage house stop - that can add on time. But, if you are not staying at the Treehouses, you will not be impacted by that internal bus line.

    When we have stayed at SSR, we have not had to wait more than 15-20 minutes during peak times for any bus to any park. Also, depending on where your room is located, you can easily walk to DTD. There is also a boat to DTD too.

    Alot of people do not rent cars when going to Disney. Disney makes it very easy! You will be fine.

    We stopped renting a car a while back I was costing close to $700 for a car which was money better left in my pocket.

    I'm not however impressed with the SSR transportation. Yes, it works, you will eventually get to where you need to go. There are better resorts if transportation is your priority. I've never stayed at OKW, I hear a lot of good opinions on it.

    If your only choices are SSR and OKW then you'll just need to deal with the transportation.

    Our "home" is there too, but we've never stayed. We usually stay at the Boardwalk, but are coming down with friends and are coming in a Mobile Home.
    Thanks for your help.
