    My mother is particularly interested in WDW's spa services. I know that Disney World has multiple options, but am curious as to how they differ and which is the best? (Or are they all equally good, in which case how do they differ?)

    Dear Jacqueline,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about spa services for your mother while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have to say that I love your Mom's thought process on this one! Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort is a truly magical way to spend some of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort. There is a wide array of services available, from facials to massages and beyond, and the setting couldn't be more relaxing or beautiful, not to mention convenient!

    Equally relaxing and with the same array of services is Senses - A Disney Spa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort, which offers the same full array of services but in a different location. This location also boasts a wet relaxation room with a whirlpool, heated loungers, and a steam room. 

    Honestly, your Mom couldn't go wrong with either of these locations, and there is also Mandara Spa at Walt Disney World's Dolphin Hotel. I've never tried this location but I've heard it's also delightful.

    Your choice may depend most on where you are staying, since an easy trip "home" from a relaxing experience like a massage is a must in my opinion. No stress after facials needed, thank you very much!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
