Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa
Checking in for a Star Wars Weekend Vacation
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.
A stone arch entrance welcomes guests.
The Saratoga Springs Deluxe Studio room with a queen sized bed.
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.
This particular Deluxe Studio room configuration came with a queen bed and
small sitting area.
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.
Looking back toward the Deluxe Studio's kitchen, bathroom, vanity, closet, and entrance area foyer.
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.
Staying at Disney's higher end properties means higher end amenities.
This includes H2O bathroom products.
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).
Also in the closet is an iron, a vacuum, and a baby crib.
The crib will also sleep very small adults.
The entrance foyer area of the Deluxe Studio.
A decorative hat and coat hanger in the entrance of the Deluxe Studio;
very much needed in Florida.
The "kitchen" area of the Deluxe Studio.
The coffee maker, basket of coffees, and a toaster.
The mini-mini sink of the Deluxe Studio;
complete with mini-sponge, mini-dish detergent and,
oddly, a full-size dish rag.
These are some of the accessories found in the "kitchen".
So many ways to open cans.
The mini fridge gave me fond memories of my college dorm room.
The sitting area,
used for dining, playing cards, or family board games.
At least, that's what the brochure depicts.
Opening the curtains of the Deluxe Studio reveals an outdoor sitting area.
This is the deluxe sitting area of the Deluxe Studio.
This particular villa had a deluxe water view!
