Congress Park is the name of the first section, opened in 2004. I stayed in that specific section in August of 2004, just a few months after SSR's opening and it was the first and only section open at the time.Lucky bunni 03:32, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Here is a map of SSR, and here is the data I have from the WDW Library & Research Center:
  • Villa Buildings: When all phases are complete, there will be a total of 18 Villa Buildings.
    • Phase 1: 4 Villa Buildings in one section called the Springs (opened on May 17, 2004)
    • Phase 2: 8 Villa Buildings in two sections called Congress Park and the Paddock (opened in Spring 2005)
    • Phase 3: 6 Villa Buildings in two sections called the Grandstand and the Carousel (Scheduled to open in Winter 2006/2007)
I can't claim to know what the picture is actually of (though it does look like Congress Park to me, I work across the lake), just that Congress Park wasn't the name of the first section. I know that they have been putting guests in buildings as they are completed and are show ready (one a month typically), before the "phase" is complete, so maybe you did stay in a recently completed Congress Park building and that is the confusion? Maybe the phase wording should say completed instead of opened.

Congress Park was First[edit]

Virtually all other sources including those dated summer of 2004 mention Congress Park -- 4 initial buildings with 2 more to be finished later in the year (2004) as being the first phase. Aerial photos from 2003 show major earth moving and no remnants of previous buildings in Congress Park area yet the old buildings and landscaping are obviously still in the Springs area. (The High Springs pool area also looks to be under construction.) Room numbering would also seem to suggest CP was first. Pictures taken by early tour takers always show the CP logo, not the Springs logo. Surely someone reading this must have stayed in the CP are early enough in 2004 to confirm all of this.
