    Hi! We're considering a stay at Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa in either a one-bedroom villa or two-bedroom lock-off. Are all the rooms at Saratoga updated? Additionally, are the splash pad and the aquatic play area open? Thanks! April

    "Welcome home," April and thanks for coming back to planDisney with your question! 

    April, dreaming about and planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is ALMOST as Magical as the vacation itself and I'm so excited to chat about yours! 

    April, when my husband and I stayed at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa last year I quickly fell in love with the quiet vibe and the amazingly convenient walk over to Disney Springs! Any resort that feeds my sweet tooth with a quick stroll to Amorette's Patisserie earns an A+ in my book. 

    Now, let's talk about the ongoing refurbishment at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. The updates to the villas are happening by section of the resort and not by room type. The refurbishment began in the Congress Park section (closest to that Disney Springs walkway) and then moved on to The Springs section. April, if you're hoping to score a refurbished villa, I would recommend booking your stay in the preferred category. This will give you the best chance of experiencing the new rooms AND has the added bonus of being close to the High Rock Spring Pool and the Donald Duck splash and play area. April, I'm also happy to report that you'll find those areas of the pool open and welcoming the littlest Mouseketeers. Finally I'll encourage you to call into Member Services before check-in to request an updated room. While I can't guarantee this, I know Tinker Bell works hard to sprinkle her pixie dust when those calls come in! 

    April, I hope this helps as you are thinking about your next trip "home." Before you secure that reservation, make sure to read all about the enhanced health and safety measures you'll find when you arrive. In addition, if you're planning to book this stay using Disney Vacation Club points, don't forget that currently Members who want to borrow Points to complete a reservation will (temporarily) only be able to borrow up to 50 percent of their future Use Year Points per contract. 

    April, thanks again for coming back to see us here at planDisney. Whichever villa you choose, I hope that your vacation is filled with smiles, laughter and memories.
