From its colorful Victorian architecture to the historic influence of horse racing, this idyllic lakeside community recaptures the heyday of upstate New York country retreats of the late 1800s. Rolling hills, fragrant gardens, gracious promenades and gurgling springs combine to relax, reconnect and rejuvenate the spirit. And, when the mood for a little excitement hits, the magical metropolis of the DOWNTOWN DISNEY Area is right across the lake. Resort features 840 Villa Resort rooms, pool with slide and zero depth entry, two quiet pools, spas, kiddie pool, arcade, playground, bicycle rentals, tennis, basketball and shuffleboard courts. Rooms are available for guests with disabilities.

The full service spa will temporarily close for renovation on January 16, 2013 and will reopen in the summer.

Complimentary Wi-Fi service is now available in all Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Guests will now be able to access complimentary Wi-Fi in their rooms as well as in select common areas within the resort hotel, including restaurant locations, bus load zones, feature pools, arcades, convention spaces (if applicable) and the porte cochere.

Disney Hotel Resort guests also enjoy their Extra Magic Hours Benefit. On select days, Disney Resort hotel guests can enter a Disney Theme Park an hour early-and on select evenings, enjoy a Park up to two hours after regular closing time. That's when lines may be shorter and the weather can be more comfortable. Guests have time for a midday break or a dip in the pool. Then the gang will be ready to head back to the same Theme Park for more fun! Don't forget your Magic Your Way Tickets with Park Hopper Option! The Park Hopper option is the only way you will be able to fully enjoy the Extra Magic Hours Benefit when the extra hours in the morning is a different Disney theme park than the extra hours in the evening.

Fathers and daughters getaway

For 3 dads and their daughters the 2 BR worked well. Nice on site pools with a central location close to downtown Disney. Efficient bus schedules that seemed more convenient then cheaper disney hotels we've stayed at before. I highly recommend the 2 BR units for larger groups as it's much cheaper than two hotel rooms.

Disney

Disney's Saratoga Springs Hotel was perhaps the dirtiest hotel I have ever checked into. We arrived late,feeling tired and ready to sleep. After unpacking , I checked out the small kitchen area and it was filthy. There was actually food, (looked like tomato sauce) streaked down the fridge. The microwave also had food caked all over the handle and the door. GROSS! As tired as I was, I called the front desk and asked someone to please come clean it. They did not do an good lob. We were only there 3 nights and did not want to waste time moving the next day, so we stayed in that room. Much to my HORROR, the next day my son found a used washcloth still in the shower.!

A disney get away

Staying on a Disney Property has benefits but this location is far from all four parks and usually means a fairly long wait for a bus and a 15 to minute ride to a park. Downtown Disney is close by and certainly has been enlarged since we started coming to Disney World. The food is adequate at the hotel but nothing special and we ate at Downtown Disney several times. The spa was closed. The one-bedroom villa has a washing machine and full size kitchen and room to spread out. The pull out bed only really works for kids. The studio villa is just that, a mini-refrigerator, microwave and a couch. The room decoration is nothing special. Several good size pools with slides that were very kid friendly. The grounds are nicely landscaped. They do not allow late check out and we did not get our room until 4 but they have a refrigerated luggage room so that the cooler bag did not result in spoiled food in the 90 degree weather. All this being said, the price was more economical that some of the other Disney resorts that would have resulted in shorter bus rides. The staff is exceptional, knowledgeable, and friendly.

BEDBUGS!!!!

Checked out of Saratoga Springs resort on 4/19/2013. I was in the 8- building. Had not traveled before or since that trip. Now dealing with a major bedbug infestation in my house. Unable to get the hotel general manager on the line to lodge a formal complaint. Switchboard keeps sending us to Disney Customer Relations, who do not actually help (and have the nerve to wish me a "magical day"). Check your room carefully. After spending thousands of dollars on a Disney World vacation, we now have to spend $7000 to get our house heated and the bugs exterminated

Nice, quiet place to stay

Overall, the resort was nice and we didn't have any major issues. The kitchen appliances were showing their age, but the rest of the room looked nice. Only thing that didn't work was the WiFi. We called once, and they reset something and it worked for about 5 minute and stopped again. There was hardly ever anyone else around, so good place to go if you don't want to be around a ton of people.

More time

Almost everything about Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa was perfect. The only real drawback was the overall size of the place. I wish I'd had more time to take advantage of the resort's features...there's so much to do without ever leaving the property. My advice is to plan for some down time to take advantage of resort's activities.

2 room Villa

We stayed in the 2 bedroom villa(paddock). We had a king suite and a 2 queen bed room. It had 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen. There were many activities for our little one on the resort, I would recommend staying an extra day or two just to have fun at the resort it's self. We were next to a small kids pool area, that our 3 year old loved! It had two small slides and a water area she could run around in. There was also a larger pool with a slide for the adults. There are bus stops through out the resort to take to the parks. The bus rides were a little longer then excepted. Waiting for a bus and then getting back to the resort could take an hour if not longer. That was the only negative thing I would say about our stay.

Visiting Disney's parks for 6 days

This property is huge, includes a golf course and about 4 different swimming pools that the kids love. The personnel in the reception is very kind with the kids and give a lot of stickers, hats, etc. The reason I don't rate this hotel better is because I was expecting to see one of the characters in the hotel, Mickey, Donald, whichever, based on the price. There are other properties in the area, not Disney of course, at half the price of this one with the same cleanliness and comfort. The bus service runs fine.
