Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa

Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is in Walt Disney World's Deluxe Villas accommodations category.  Prices, accommodations, and amenities at this level can be the highest on property.  This category is the name given to the Disney Vacation Club properties which can also be booked like standard hotel rooms without the need for a Disney Vacation Club membership.

Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort is an absolutely massive property.  It consists of dozens of buildings grouped into themed areas and intertwined with the Buena Vista Golf Course.  Those themed areas are The Springs, The Grandstand, The Paddock, Congress Park, and the Treehouse Villas section.

The Spa at Saratoga Springs is a full service spa and is open to the general public as well as resort guests.

One of the many Victorian-style buildings of the resort. 
This one is located in The Springs area.

Categories of rooms at the Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa include Studios, One Bedroom Villas, Two Bedroom Villas, and Tree House Villas.

Disney Vacation Club members have a larger selection of room category options available to them.

For our plans of attending one of the Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios, a one bedroom Deluxe Studio was perfect.

A Mickey towel on the bed seems to be standard issue at Disney resorts.

deluxe studio room
This particular Deluxe Studio room configuration came with a queen bed and
small sitting area.

more room
The small sofa is also a pull-out full-size bed.
Even though we had no need to use this piece as anything more than a sofa,
we have heard that this is not very comfortable to sleep on as a pull-out bed.

the studio again
Looking back toward the Deluxe Studio's kitchen, bathroom, vanity, closet, and entrance area foyer.

the LCD tv of the deluxe studio
This TV stayed exclusively on Stacy all weekend.
I roll my eyes at you if you don't know who Stacy is.

The vanity area of the Deluxe Studio.
Behind the mirrored door is the bathroom.

The bathroom.

the soaps of the deluxe studio
Staying at Disney's higher end properties means higher end amenities.
This includes H2O bathroom products.

deluxe studio closet with safe and ironing board
To the left of the bathroom door is a closet which contains a wafer-thin wall safe, an ironing board, and a broom (in case you'd like to do some sweeping).

iron and baby crib
Also in the closet is an iron, a vacuum, and a baby crib.
The crib will also sleep very small adults.

the deluxe studio entrance
The entrance foyer area of the Deluxe Studio.

coat hanger decoration
A decorative hat and coat hanger in the entrance of the Deluxe Studio;
very much needed in Florida.

the kitchen area
The "kitchen" area of the Deluxe Studio.

the toaster and stuff
The  coffee maker, basket of coffees, and a toaster.

the sink area of the deluxe studio
The mini-mini sink of the Deluxe Studio;
complete with mini-sponge, mini-dish detergent and,
oddly, a full-size dish rag.

kitchen assesories
These are some of the accessories found in the "kitchen".
So many ways to open cans.

the refrigerator volume
The mini fridge gave me fond memories of my college dorm room.

the dining area
The sitting area,
used for dining, playing cards, or family board games.
At least, that's what the brochure depicts.

looking out the door of the deluxe studio
Opening the curtains of the Deluxe Studio reveals an outdoor sitting area.

This is the deluxe sitting area of the Deluxe Studio.
