    Hi Moms! We've booked SS for Sept 2014. Never stayed at DVC property before, reviews say its more relax. Does it still have the theme music and magical Disney feel PORS has? We 've stayed there before and loved it! love the moms always great advice thankx

    Howdy Zoe!  I love Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa!  I agree - it is one of the more "relaxing" resorts on property as you are away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds yet have the luxury of being a short walk or boat ride away from the dining, shopping and electric nightlife of Downtown Disney.

    The resort was inspired by historic Saratoga Springs, a late-1800s’ New York retreat famous for its spas and horse racing.  It's a lovely Victorian-style resort hotel nestled between a golf course and lake.  The pools are incredible and enhance the theme of the resort.

    As you walk the grounds, you will have the same magical experience that you had at Disney's Port Orleans.  You will feel as if you have been transported to historic Saratoga Springs.  You will be brought back to reality though as you pass by one of the numerous bus stops and realize a theme park awaits you.

    If you find yourself back at your resort around a meal time, I recommend the Turf Club Bar and Grill.  The food is wonderful and the service is fabulous. 

    It will be a much different vacation than what you experienced while at Port Orleans but I'm confident you will love Saratoga Springs as much as I do.

    The resort is quite large, if you can tell me the number of people in your party and some of your preferences, I might be able to suggest a location request for you.  Do you want to be near the Fitness Center and Spa?  Do you want to be within walking distance to Downtown Disney?  Do you prefer to be near a pool?  At Saratoga Springs, you have countless options!! 

    I hope you have a magical time at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa and please let me know if you need further information.
