Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa
Ranked #82 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2011

Let's begin by simply stating that staying at any of the on-property Disney Resorts accomodations is going to rival any 5 star accomodations anywhere - they're just that good. Spacious, well-appointed rooms. Grounds that are spotless. Staff that are helpful and friendly. All needs anticipated beforehand and accomodated.

We stayed at Saratoga Springs for 5 nights in a 2BR/2BA deluxe villa and pretty much got all of that. We have stayed before at Boardwalk villas and Wilderness Lodge villas(twice) and decided to give these a try. SS is much larger, more units, and more spread out than the others. More like condo complex with multiple buildings similar to Old Key West and unlike Wilderness Lodge, Boardwalk, Yacht/Beach Club where the villas are housed in one building. So the feel was a little bit different and the location is not quite as convenient since it is further away from the parks. But still a beautiful property, 2 large pools (new Paddock pool just opened) and few other smaller ones. We golfed several times so convenient for that since Lake Buena Vista course is right there and Osprey Ridge is very close by. We actually arrived @ noon but our room wasn't quite ready so since we had a tee time, we hit the golf course. As promised, they texted me when our room was ready so we went straight to it after our round(he already gave us our keys). Having the kitchen is huge to be able to eat breakfast (cereal, bagels, whatever) right away and hit the parks early without having to herd everybody to a restaurant. ONE THING: C'mon Disney - isn't about time to start including free in-room WI-FI?? (Currently it's with a hard line(ethernet cord provided) and it costs $10/day)

What a wonderful experience, as only Disney can do it! We arrived at the hotel early so that we could begin our visit to the parks. As soon as we entered the lobby the doorman greeted my 6 yo niece, "Welcome home, Princess," and then handed her a crown. This was her first trip to Disney and she was truly in awe. When we were checking in, expecting a two bedroom villa and a single room, we were pleasantly surprised that we had been "magically" upgraded to a three bedroom Grand Villa. What a beautiful room and hotel. We had excellent service our entire trip! We can't wait to come back!

I really loved Saratoga. The view of the newly added pool was awesome. The spa was great. There was a jacuzzi in our room. The washer/dryer in our room helped so much. They even give two free tide starters. Everyone from the bellhop to the concierge gave wonderful service. If you have a kitchen try ordering groceries on line for delivery. The disney bus service worked great and really did save on expenses. It was so easy to use, even my kids had it figured out by the end of the day. I wish I had known more of what disney had to offer. No need to bring too much cash with you. Their resort card gives you credit you can use at all the parks. The dining plan for us was a bit much...but hey you are on vacation...live it up!!

Room Tip: Pay your trip off as early as possible. You may get surprised with some room upgrades...ya never kn...

We visit Disney World often and Saratoga Springs is one of my favorite resorts. It's huge, but you never feel overwhelmed by the size. We always request a room near a bus stop, so it's very convenient to the parks. As with any Disney resort, rooms are immaculate and well stocked. Saratoga Springs, being one of the Disney Vacation Club resorts, also has the larger 1-2-3 BR condo units, which have a full kitchen and laundry facilities. Very convenient for families!

Room Tip: If you want a room near a bus stop, pool, etc request it when you make your reservation

Whats not to love about a Disney resort. Staying in a two bedroomed Villa for five people, it was huge. In the group was our kids then 17 and 16 and a family friend. The kids comfortably slept in one bedroom and we had a huge king size bedroom with ensuite spa bath and seperate bathroom.
The kitchen was adequate and we would have breakfast everyday in the room. We stayed in The Springs area room 4421 and would recommend, it is close to main pool, main concierge, spa - massages are fantastic. Really close for everything. Do not believe anything about the busses, we didn't wait long for any bus, it was never overfilled and when all said and done your on holiday - chill.
The pool was fantastic, great fruit cocktails from the bar.
We ate and Downtown Disney plenty of times and really enjoyed food and ambience.
Really had an enjoyable, relaxing stay but managed to find time to run around every park, we did stay for 10 days so didn't feel the need to rush anywhere. Chilled on the balcony some nights with a glass of something, loved it.
Would definately stay here again and would love to soon.

We have stayed at SSR 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 in July and will be again in October, unless we stay else where.

Every year we have trouble with the buses at SSR. The last 2 times we have had issues with the sofa, you can't sit on it because it hits the back of your legs because the cushions are not as good as they should be. We have complained each time and we have gotten points back once.

We waited 40 minutes for a bus at Downtown Disney (DTD) and because we had dinner reservations at Turb Club (we found to be great food) we decided to walk back. We missed the sidewalk and turned into where the Security Guard is just down the road from DTD. The Guard we rude and said we should have used the sidewalk (we missed it), and rather than say, there is a side walk on the right just up ahead, so please stay to the right he wanted us to turn around and walk back to where the sidewalk is. Now I had my mom in a scooter, 3 year old nephew, and 14 year old nephew and this was at the end of a 7 day stay and we went to the parks every day. We were tired and I was not going back to that sidewalk. I let the front desk manager know how we were treated.

In May 2011 we stayed at the Bay Lake Towers at the Contemprary (BLT) in room 8022 with MK view (Magic Kingdom) and it was unbelievable. My 3 year old nephew would go to the window every time we were in the room and run to the window and say "Walt Disney World". The windows are floor to ceiling and we really like that the pool was right there. If you can stay at BLT, I highly suggest it, even if it is not with MK view as getting to MK and Epcot is very easy because of the Monorail and thus it appears they have more buses for Hollywood Studio, Animal Kingdom, and Downtown Disney.

My family and I were at WDW this past May and had a great time! We decided to stay at Saratoga Springs once again and had a great stay (we were also there in May 2010). We requested to stay in the Springs section of the resort and our request was fulfilled. We had a beautiful room and an easy walk to the bus stop, main pool, & the Carriage House. We can not say enough good things about this resort and our visits to WDW - our daughters LOVE it and so do my husband and I! If you are looking for a quiet place to relax after a busy day at the parks, Saratoga Springs is the perfect place for you!!!!
