    I'm planing our 1st family( family of 6) visit to DW in Nov. We are planning on staying in a Villa either at Saratoga Springs or Old Key West, any opinions on either? If so, are those sofa beds comfortable??

    Hi Jennifer, Thanks for your question!

    We've stayed in the Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa with our family of 7. We loved it so much that we purchased a membership in the Disney Vacation Club, with Saratoga Springs being our "Home" Resort. You'll love the close proximity to Downtown Disney, as well as the wonderful "High Rock Springs" pool.

    Our favorite area of the Resort is called "Congress Park". Many of the rooms have views of Downtown Disney. In addition, they are just a short walk from the Carriage House area. I believe it  takes us about 5-7 minutes (leisurely pushing a stroller) to get to the Carriage House which houses the check-in, High Rock Spring (main) Pool, Spa and Fitness Center, boat dock, restaurants and more. Congress Park also has a pedestrian walkway to Downtown Disney and a great pool of its own. Don't forget to schedule some relaxation at the Spa or enjoy a round of golf.

    Be sure to make reservations for dinner at the Turf Club Bar and Grill, it is one of Disney Dining's hidden gems! The meals we've had there are always fantastic.

    The sofa beds are actually very comfortable. They aren't like a "regular" sofa bed, in that you can't feel the bar across your back. It's very much like sleeping in a bed, and your children will be quite comfortable in it.

    Old Key West is also very nice, we just prefer Saratoga Springs instead.

    Hope this helps and that you have a Magical Vacation,
