We own points at SSR, but this was our first time staying there. This is a Downtown Disney Area hotel, as it is just across the lake.
Our room was about half a mile away from the Race Bus pick-up, which doesn't seem like a lot, but when you are walking there in the morning, walking to the corrals, standing around, running, and then walking back to the bus, and then back to the room, it really adds up.
I think we would have had a totally different experience if we were closer to the main Hall. There was no pool in our area, or laundry, or an ice machine.
The room at Saratoga seemed to be a bit small, compared to OKW. It had a queen bed with a pull-out couch, which was fine for us. But maybe since we weren't on the end, it just felt a little more cramped.
Hopefully a different location of room, or not being here during DOPEY weekend where I am running four races will change our minds on how we liked it.
