    Hi Anna - we are first time DVC members arriving in Aug - home resort is Saratoga - have two sons aged 21 & 23 - will know for next time to book a preferred room but we have a 1 bedroom villa - what area would you suggest at Saratoga? Carol from Phila

    Hi there, Carol! Thanks for your question about Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. This is one of our home resorts, and I love how light and bright the rooms are and how close we are to Disney Springs.

    My favorite areas are the Paddock and the Grandstand. Both are a fairly short walk to the main pool area, Horsing Around Recreation Rentals (where the boys can rent bikes and sports equipment for tennis or basketball), and The Artist's Palette Restaurant, where you can grab a quick bite or a snack.

    The Paddock would be my preference if I had to choose one, because I love the pool in the Paddock area, and we also enjoy The Paddock Grill. We've spent many evenings relaxing by the pool with a cold drink and a burger, or if you like to sleep in a bit later, you can get breakfast here until 11 AM. That might be great for two guys who have done the Jellyrolls dueling piano bar the night before.

    If being a bit closer to a boat launch is important, request the Grandstand section. It's not only a bit closer to one of the boat launches, but I've also found it a little more convenient in terms of bus seating.

    You've chosen a lovely place to call "home," Carol! I hope you enjoy many wonderful Disney Vacation Club vacations.
