Inspired by historic Saratoga Springs—a late-1800s’ New York retreat famous for its spas and horse racing—this charming, Victorian-style Resort hotel is nestled between rolling golf course greens and the shimmering Lake Buena Vista. Delight in stately Studios and multi-bedroom Villas, dazzling pools and a spa. You can also explore the fun activities and exciting dining options of Disney Springs, just a boat ride away.
Saratoga Springs is one of the two Disney Vacation Club Properties that is not attached to a Deluxe Resort. The rooms are a little bigger than the other DVC properties. It does not enjoy the same privileged location as some of the other options, but I do love the walking path to Disney Springs. The Treehouse Villas make so many childhood dreams come true.
Even if it is still a bit higher to stay onsite, the benefits can far outweigh the added cost. I have laid out those benefits for you to see how staying at a Disney resort is a good value for you in my blog “Benefits to Staying at a Disney Resort.”
