Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is a charming Victorian style resort hotel inspired by historic Saratoga Springs - a New York retreat famous for it’s spas and horse racing.
Guests love this resort because it is close to Disney Springs and even has a walking path so you can get there without using any transportation at all. It’s also has TWO feature pools with waterslides.
Saratoga Springs is a Disney Vacation Club resort, but it is available for the general public to book. Because it is a DVC resort, it has spacious villas with home amenities like a kitchen, washer, dryer and separate bedrooms. These are great for larger families or longer stays. The accommodations here include studios, one bedroom, villas, two bedroom villas, and Three Bedroom Grand Villas that sleep 12 guests. There are even unique Treehouse Villas (three bedrooms) at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.
When you are looking for a one bedroom or two bedroom villa at Disney World, Saratoga Springs and Old Key West are usually the most affordable options. One draw back to these resorts are that they are very large resorts. When traveling to the parks, the bus with stop at each section of the resort to pick up guests before heading to the parks.
We recommend that you book a “preferred” villa or studio if possible so that you can be close to the amenities and transportation.
If you have a golfer in the family, they will love that Saratoga Springs is also the home to Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.
Lastly, because Saratoga is a Deluxe Resort guests staying here will receive EXTENDED EVENING HOURS on select nights in select theme parks (During the 50th Anniversary Celebration) in addition to the standard early park entry that all Disney Resort guests receive.
