  • Overall Impression: Our family enjoys Saratoga Springs. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, and the proximity to Disney Springs is a plus. We like being able to pop over to the Carriage House as a family or separately for meals. The pools are amazing and the rec. department goes above and beyond with the kids at the pools. The rooms just need some serious love-I understand they are working on it but it's a shame it got so bad before they got started on the rehab.

  • Overall Impression: SSR is an underrated resort. It is not that spread out and most cases you can take a bus to the main area, just hop on any one. Grounds are impeccable and peaceful, such a nice escape from the parks. Pool selection is amazing. Huge benefit being next to Disney Springs...we walked over there all the time. Makes it easy to resort hop too, just grab a bus in DS.Staff is friendly and helpful...their bell services is so responsive. It IS due for the rehab underway, but the rooms are still okay and quite usable. We prefer SSR over any other DVC resort, and not just for ease of booking. We plan out at 11 months.

  • Overall Impression: I would stay here again. The proximity to Disney springs was nice, we were able to walk there in the evening. Once the refurbishment is complete the rooms will be much more comfortable (the old pull outs are not very good at all). The grounds of the resort are also quite nice to walk around.

  • Overall Impression: I really, really like Saratoga Springs. It is always easy to book and I like the theme of the resort and I'm super excited for the refurbishment scheduled. Once that happens, this will be our ideal resort to stay at. It's cheapest on points and has elevators in the buildings which is better than Old Key West. I like that it's spread out and there is a ton of things to do there compared to the other resorts we've stayed at.

  • Overall Impression: Compared to other DVC studios where we have stayed, this earned high marks from the family for the serenity and close access to pool and food (we lucked out with a great room location). We enjoyed the Cast Member interaction, and while the resort is very spread out, we didn't have any issues. We're planning another stay here in 2020.

  • Overall Impression: We loved the quiet relaxed atmosphere of this resort. The cast members and atmosphere made this resort great for us and has my sister who is autistic asking to go back to saratokia as she calls it. While I'm not sure we will ever purchase DVC we will totally rent here again.

  • Overall Impression: If you can get a good location it’s a very relaxing resort. We were in the springs and it was great to get to the bus stop or restaurant in just a couple of minutes. When we’ve been further out we didn’t user the hotel amenities nearly as much.

  • Overall Impression: As I said I have DVC and this is my home resort I really don’t like it I have stayed there several times I liked the Tree Houses but it took way too long to go from there to the Springs to get a bus to go anywhere. The gift shop is also way too small they didn’t have any Christmas ornaments at Christmas time

  • Overall Impression: We would try a different deluxe resort. This one is beautiful but just big for comfort and just too far out from all the parks. It took forever to get anywhere on the buses. I especially would like to mention the bus to Disney Springs. It is only across the water but on the bus, it took a half hour or more to get there every time. It's like the bus turns in the opposite direction leaving the resort and goes away from Disney Springs and all the way around. You see woods and other resorts and finally Disney Springs in on your left hand side. Not enjoyable or very efficient.

  • Overall Impression: We went into this not sure how we were going to like it. We were originally hoping for an Epcot area resort but none were available to rent and I am glad. We loved it here! We had a refurbished room in Congress Park, the building right next to Disney Springs. We are huge Disney Springs fans so it was wonderful to be able to walk there whenever we wanted and we utilized it for breakfast at Starbucks or Earl of Sandwich every morning. The refurbished rooms were amazing. We have 3 older kids (25,21 and 17) and it was so great for the 2 older girls to get their own beds in the spacious second bedroom. My 17 year old son was so happy with the murphy bed. It was so nice to have an actual bed for him as opposed to the pullout sofa. We could fold the bed into the wall everyday and actually utilize the sofa during the day, something that was too cumbersome with a regular pullout sofa. We did not utilize the bus system but I will say that this is a huge resort and if you are not staying in a preferred section you may need either a car or the busses just to get to the main building. I would definitely recommend this resort, it was quiet, the rooms were amazing and the walk to Disney Springs was perfect.

  • Overall Impression: My wife and I went down to our 1st home resort we’ve owned for 14 years. We love Saratoga Springs as we can just get away from life in Southeast Mass for a while. No hustle and bustle of the parks. It gives you what you need in a vacation. We were able to enjoy the pools, bus service, water taxi to Disney Springs even an outdoor dinner meal at the Turf Club. We enjoyed speaking with and sharing our stories with other members from other regions of the U.S. and world. We’ve lived our next DVC vacation through the the Dis and the DVC fan page for the last 7-10 years and we truly enjoy the vlogs. Thank you so much for all you do. When we watched the review of SSR earlier last year we were shocked at your meals at the Turf Club. My wife and I have to agree the Prime Rib meal was not worth the price when the restaurants over at Disney Springs are better for roughly the same price. Sincerely Tom & Tara Beale Plympton Mass

  • Overall Impression: This was my second stay at Saratoga Springs but first for more than one short night. We loved this resort, it was quiet and beautiful. We were doing the RunDisney Wine and DIne 10k and half and the bus transportation to and from the races was easy. Even though our room was not yet renovated everything was fine.

  • Overall Impression: Rooms are old (I know they are currently being renovated). There was a smoking section right outside our room, so we could smell smoke as soon as we opened our door to leave. I am pregnant and have a young daughter, so having to smell smoke each time we walked outside was very disappointing. I considered asking to move, but we checked in late, and I knew that would be a lot of trouble as well. As a DVC member, I would probably only stay here again as a last resort.

  • Overall Impression: I love the resort, it’s size isn’t a problem for me and as a consequence I find it’s quiet and peaceful. There are 2 walking routes to the different ends of Disney springs, and I personally disagree about the size of the resort. For me personally I feel the majority of the resort (treehouses aside) is all walking distance to the main hub. The paddocks area has a superb pool comparable to the main pool at other deluxe resorts (meaning Saratoga has 2 high quality pools). The rooms need a refresh (which is happening) and the main area including the shop is perhaps the most limited of all deluxe resorts. The food in artists palette is average at best and needs a revamp and it’s this central hub that lets the resort down.

  • Overall Impression: I like this resort and would stay here again if I was with the family members who own DVC here, but I would not actively seek this resort out or buy points here. And I would avoid eating at Artist's Palette.

  • Overall Impression: The resort is beautiful. Lush grounds, peaceful walkways, friendly staff, good food. The walk to Disney springs was quick and easy. I loved riding the boat to Disney springs as well. I’ll be back in the summer and will be staying in Congress park I hope. I Enjoy the preferred rooms with closer access to Disney springs.

  • Overall Impression: I love/hate how secluded the treehouses are. While it’s nice and quiet, and good for larger parties, it’s inconvenient when trying to get anywhere. We stay at SSR often, usually in Congress park so we can walk to Disney springs (main pro for the resort overall), this was our first stay in the treehouses. We would definitely come again. We did not have any kids with us, and I did not think the treehouses would be a good fit for a trip with my niece and nephew (3 and 5 yrs old) because there is not very much for kids to do.

  • Overall Impression: We enjoyed the resort. We bought our DVC contract at Saratoga Springs mostly because of price. We would stay again, but there are other resorts we want to try out. The biggest draw back for Saratoga Springs is the size. It is so huge. It is a long walk to everything that is not in your section. You can walk to Disney Springs easily if you are in Congress Park, but it’s a very long walk from the other sections.

  • Overall Impression: Pretty nice place with well manicured grounds and easy walking access to Disney Springs. Takes a lot of time to get to the parks compared to other places we have stayed. Not far from local restaurants, grocery stores, etc if needed. Geared for older crowd as there wasnt a lot for little kids other than the main pool and picture contest at artist palette.

  • Overall Impression: I walked away from this stay with the knowledge that the next stay here will see newly updated rooms. Despite that, I still think Old Key West is the better option for a DVC stay as the resort offer more charm. That being said, I'll never be disappointed to stay at Saratoga Springs. Unless you have no other choice, however, maybe wait to stay here until after the room refurbishments are complete.

  • Overall Impression: The rooms are dated (but the resort is currently doing a renovation) This is my second stay at SSR and I would recommend. Since I rent a car I like that you can park next to room and while large it doesn’t seem as spread out as OKW or some of the others. Locations to DS is unbeatable.

  • Overall Impression: Saratoga Springs is going through a refurbishment that is LONG overdue. Our family loves the resort grounds, restaurants and pools, but the rooms are in rough shape, a little too rough for Disney prices as far as I'm concerned. Before booking I would look into where they are at in the refurbishment schedule and request/book a refurbished/preferred room if possible. We have ended up in non-refurbished rooms and our stay was less than magical. If WDW cannot guarantee a rehabbed room I would book another resort. Old Key West is in the same general vicinity and around the same price point.

  • Overall Impression: We enjoyed staying on Disney property with access to Disney transportation, namely the boat service to Disney springs. When compared to other hotels in Orlando for this same price, it is a pretty mediocre value. However, I am looking forward to the room renovations and would consider staying here again with the room updates. As long as you stay in the Grandstand, which is the first bus stop on the way to the parks and about a 5 minute walk to the main lobby, it is doable.

  • Overall Impression: We have stayed at many Disney resorts. This was the first one where we felt we were just staying at a large hotel. There wasn’t a lot of that Disney feeling here. The two bedroom suites were terrific for our large family. We won’t stay here again unless it is our only option. It was Quiet, clean, and comfortable, though, and I’m glad we tried it.

  • Overall Impression: Overall it was a decent stay. I would only stay here again if it were the only option. The rooms were clean, however needed updating. The size of the resort was too big and therefore put a damper on things immediately as your first experience in the day is praying you can get somewhere in a timely fashion. Food was not tried, however, I heard it was bad. The ironic thing of the resort is that the resort is so spread out, but the common places are so compact. This was not a terrible experience, but at the same time it was no where near the best. As I stated above this is not a "disney" priority resort. This is a resort for those that have done disney a lot and are basically down just to get away and enjoy the area on a more relaxed feel.

  • Overall Impression: I have stayed at Saratoga Springs several times with last second resort stays. After this last visit I will never stay here again. The awful bus arrival times were just too much this last trip. Leaving a Halloween party at midnight, waiting for 3 buses to come and go, just to walk a half mile back to my room.

Had to get in the car and drive to the main buildings just for ice.
