    I love my doctor. :D She told me I needed to get away and de-stress. :D

    So, we are headed to SSR the first weekend of the Flower and Garden Festival. It's a four day break for me, and that will be good. :yes:

    We are staying in a studio for a change. We usually do prefer a one bedroom, but Herself said, NO COOKING! :mental: So, off we go to SSR and who knows what for food.

    We did talk about the DDP but I just couldn't see it for us. We are not fans, so we passed.

    We will dine off property sometimes too. :yes:

    So! If anyone has any questions they'd like answers to about SSR, let me know and I'll try and get the info for you when we are there. :yes:

    In the meantime, counting down the days to check in! :tralala: Double digit dance and all that. :D :D

    :happydance: :mental: well done your doctor and I'm glad you are listening.

    The 4 day break will do you the world of good and they have food and drink kiosks at the Flower and Garden Festival this year as well. It can be a practice run for the Food and Wine in October.

    Lovely, enjoy the F&GF. And relax! :)

    I have a SSR quest for you: to see if there is a quiet part of the resort? :)

    ooo look forward to hearing all about it!

    We went round it when they were selling dvc points but didn't feel it was right for us. Apparently the restaurant there is getting some good reviews and of course wonderfully close to DTD

    There are a number of quiet places, Mystik. They are deeper into the resort along the canal, and at the quiet pool. It's a huge area. :yes:

    We aren't huge fans of SSR, but it's nice enough for a short break and it's quite close to DTD so that makes a good reason to walk extra. :yes: We like the walk from SSR to OKW to DTD and back too.

    Thank you Mags. We both need a good old break from the chaos of our working worlds so what better than Disney? :D

    The restaurant there is just ok. We've dined there before and weren't all that impressed. Would just as soon head to DTD and poke around there for something to eat. :yes:

    Thank you for your good wishes!

    I think one of the things that I'm looking forward to is not bringing all our "food." We always bring too much with us, and end up bringing more than half home! This time we are going without any! :eek: :mental:

    Yeah. I'll let you know how THAT goes! :lol:

    Well, we've made it to Friday. :sigh: It's been a hugely chaotic and stressful week. I'm not sure how much relaxation our visit will actually entail as things at work are pretty rugged right now. I envision a weekend full of being paged and called, but we'll go anyway and give it the old college try to have some peaceful bits...

    So! Will let you all know how it goes, and if we find anything nice to eat. :D :D

    We went there last August and I have to admit it was the worst food and service I've ever had on site. With any luck it's got better.
