    Hi. Coming in April for spring break week and just booked 1 bdm in Saratoga Springs. Finding conflicting info, are all of the 1 bdm villas updated now? Also, I see the waterslide is due to be refurbished in winter 2022. How long does this typically take?

    Hello Jessica!

    Welcome back to planDisney! On one hand, spring break seems like a galaxy far, far away, on the other side of the upcoming winter, yet on the other hand, I guess it really will be here before we know it! You’ve made a great choice with Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. You’ll find spacious rooms, gorgeous gardens with quiet pathways, and two feature pools! You’ll also be just a quick walk or boat ride to Disney Springs where you can shop till you drop, and choose from a variety of delicious and delightful dining options!

    All of the villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa have been renovated at this time, and the refurbishment on the lobby area should be complete very soon. So you can get excited about having one of the gorgeous refurbished rooms on your stay! I think the room renovation has moved this resort up on my popularity list. They are light and bright with a sophisticated and modern look.

    Jessica, I couldn’t find any information about a refurbishment in 2022, though I did see that there was a waterslide refurbishment at the Paddock Pool in 2021. The length of refurbishment can truly vary from as little as a few days to a week, to up to several months depending on the construction plans and what type of refurbishment needs to be done. If it will be an extended refurbishment, Disney may release a timeline closer to the actual closure. Since the Paddock Pool waterslide was refurbished in 2021, I would guess that if another waterslide refurbishment were happening this winter, it would be at the High Rock Spring Pool. One of the best features of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is that there are two feature pools as well as 3 leisure pools. If the waterslide was closed at the High Rock Spring Pool you could head to The Paddock Pool instead! Usually, the entire pool doesn’t close for waterslide maintenance, just the slide itself, so you still would have plenty of swimming options and an alternate waterslide option.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Jessica. Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
