    My friend gifted me 2 reservations through RCI, for Saratoga Springs. Can I link these to "My Disney Experience"? I've tried the reservation number on the certificate but it says it is not a valid Disney conformation number.

    Hi there, Donna! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with such a great vacation planning question.

    Well, Genie said, "You ain't never had a friend like me," but it sounds like no one has friends like you! What a generous and amazing gift! Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, with its beautiful, renovated rooms, gorgeous, peaceful grounds and location within walking distance to Disney Springs is the perfect, peaceful home away from home for your magical stay at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I'm SO happy for you that before you know it, you'll be embarking on your magical adventure, so, let's chat about how to get this planning party started!

    Since you have your certificate from RCI, you should receive an email from Disney Vacation Club with your DVC reservation number and information soon. If you have not received this email, check with your friend to see if they have. If neither of you receives the email within the next few weeks, I would call DVC Member Services and provide the oh-so-helpful Cast Member with the name on the reservation, dates of travel and Resort to get your reservation number and add any other Guests to the reservation, if necessary. Once you have this DVC reservation number, log in to your My Disney Experience account and click "Link a Reservation" under the Resort Hotel icon. Enter the reservation number and the last name on the reservation, and you should be all set! Linked and ready to plan!

    Did you know that you can rent bikes from Horsing Around Rentals to take a leisurely bike ride around Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa?! This is one of my very favorite Disney activities, and the trail at Saratoga Springs Resort is one of my favorites. The trail is just beautiful, and the views of Disney Springs from across Lake Buena Vista simply cannot be beaten. The trail stays true to the Resort's horse racing theme by being measured and marked in furlong, instead of miles. How fun is that?!

    Donna, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have the most pixie-dusted upcoming vacation! I know you will LOVE having the Deluxe Resort amenities along with all the comforts of home at this incredible Resort. Enjoy every magical moment! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
