Review: Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa

THE VIBE

The inspiration for this 65-acre 5-star resort comes all the way from 19th-Century New York with its spas and horse racing. Set amongst green rolling hills and lush vegetation, a Victorian vibe can be felt and noticed throughout the resort and its guestrooms.

SETTING

Set across the lake from Downtown Disney®, which is easily accessible by foot, boat and bus, this Victorian-style Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort is similarly close to Lake Buena Vista Golf course and Typhoon Water Park. Even Disney’s Magic Kingdom® and Hollywood Studios® are less than 5 miles away.

AT THE HOTEL

It’s not called Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa without good reason. The spa lives up to and surpasses the spas of yesteryear New York. Pamper yourself with more than 30 treatments and treat yourself to signature products in the Boutique Shop. You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and energised. Even your children can enjoy a first time facial or other spa treatment here. If you prefer to keep fit and toned by the use of machines, the Health Club at the spa will allow you to indulge in body beautiful exercises on a variety of cardiovascular equipment or with weights.

Whether your favourite pastime is swimming or messing about in the water at one of the 4 pools in resort or something even more strenuous, you won’t be disappointed. The main pool, the High Rock Spring, with its unique water slide and two hot tubs will excite the whole family. For the even more active amongst you there are two jogging trails and bicycle hire available to discover scenic Disney. Basketball and tennis courts and shuffleboard will definitely keep you on your toes and of course a leisurely game of golf can be had at nearby Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.

Staying at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa allows you to take advantage of extended park hours when available and free transport to all the Disney theme parks. Anything purchased at the theme parks can be delivered free of charge to the resort.

You’re spoilt for choice of villas in the resort’s 6 sections. Choose from The Springs, The Paddock, Congress Park, The Carousel, The Grandstand and the elevated, stand alone Treehouse villas.
The villas feature either 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. The 3 bedrooms can sleep 9 – 12 guests so are perfect for large groups or extended family groups.

FOOD & DRINK

Food & Drink experiences at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa offer both quick and table service. At the Turf Club Bar and Grill you can get lunch or dinner in a club house atmosphere with a range of American choices. The views from here are stunning and make your meal even more enjoyable as you look out over the Lake Buena Vista Golf Course or Disney Boardwalk’s lights at night. For quick service options it’s over to the Artist’s Palette. In this artist’s loft space complete with large canvases and exposed brick walls, you can get creative and order custom-made sandwiches and snacks, or pick up your own from their market. Other fast food options are available at the Turf Club Lounge.

FOR KIDS

Kids can enjoy water time fun in the 4 pools including the High Rock Spring pool complete with slide and cascading water over rocks. There’s also an interactive wading pool with a Donald Duck water feature for the really young. They’ll love the Win, Place and Show Arcade for some digital fun or the 2 playgrounds for more active play. Kids can get plenty of exercise and fresh air with bicycle rides, tennis, basketball and shuffleboard. At the Community Hall they can indulge in some ping-pong, foosball and board games to test their hand eye coordination skills.

Evening fun comes in the guise of Movies Under the Stars at the High Rock Spring pool with favourite Disney films.
