    We are a DVC member staying at the Saritoga Springs resort later this month. We are considering getting a rental car - we are staying in a 1-Bedroom Villa Preferred Room -- is this considered a "deluxe villa" thus parking fee is waived?

    Hey there, Bruce! Welcome Home, and welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question! I'm always thrilled to chat with a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member.

    Bruce, in just a few days, you will be arriving "Home" to Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, ready to begin your magical adventure using your most magical Membership. How exciting! I actually just returned home from a lovely stay at Saratoga Springs, and no matter how many times I stay there, I'm always awestruck by the beauty and serenity of the grounds. It is the perfect peaceful escape after a busy day at the theme parks or Disney Springs. 

    Bruce, I think you will be happy to hear that since you are staying in a Disney Vacation Club villa, you will get to park your car totally free of charge! This is just one way that you are welcomed to your home away from home and one of the amazing perks of being a Disney Vacation Club Member.

    While enjoying your stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, I must suggest renting bikes from Horsing Around Rentals to explore your beautiful surroundings right in the middle of the magic! This is one of my favorite biking/jogging trails in all of Walt Disney World Resort for the views of the gorgeous grounds and Disney Springs! Even the biking path stays true to the Resort's theme and is measured and marked in furlongs. How fun is that?!

    Bruce, I'm wishing you and yours the most magical upcoming vacation! Please stop by any time with any of your planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon!
