    Hello "moms"! Planning a trip for Nov/Dec '14. 12 people, looking at Grand Villas. Thinking SS, could you tell me if these are located on floors 1-2 or 2-3? We love to stay in the Paddock by the pool. Which Grand Villa is closest to bus & poo

    Howdy Elizabeth!

    We stayed in a Grand Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa during my daughter's first trip to Walt Disney World.  It was AMAZING!!  You and your party of 12 will have plenty of room and will feel right at home while enjoying the magic of Disney!

    There are Grand Villas located in all of the neighborhoods at Saratoga Springs.  They are all located on the 2nd-3rd floors.

    I love The Paddock as well!!  Isn't the pool fabulous!?!?  When you make your reservation, be sure to mention that you would like to be in The Paddock if it is available and specifically in the Grand Villa with the closest proximity to the pool and bus stop.

    Then, when you are 10 days out from your check-in date, contact Saratoga Springs at (407) 827-1100 and confirm that your request is noted.  The Cast Members that handle villa assignments will do their best to accommodate you.

    From both personal experience and from speaking with many Cast Members, this is the best way to ensure your requests are noted.  There have been times that my requests were granted and others that it just wasn't possible due to availability.  I have loved each and every villa we have stayed in and enjoyed seeing different parts of each of the resorts at Walt Disney World.

    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information as you continue planning your vacation.

    I'm so excited for you!!  I know you will love the Grand Villa!!  Thanks again and have a magical day!!
