Follow Walt Disney World Resort on Foursquare and be sure to check-in during your visit to unlock a little extra magic.
This is a great DVC member resort. Everything is convenient and you can even take a ferry boat or walk to Downtown Disney. How cool is that?
Following the loop around Downtown Disney and Saratoga Springs Resort makes for a lovely walk. Takes about an hour or so.
Others complain about the quiet location but I think it's SSR biggest selling point. Tranquil, relaxing and great for walks into Downtown Disney. Don't let the haters put you off!
Make sure you get the cheeseburg flatbread at Artist Pallette!!! Very tasty!
alot of these posters are Debbie downers,yes it's a ways out. if u looked at a map you'd know that. it's a great place! food is good .pools are great! buses and boats were great for us! love Saratoga!
Ask for Mark from Bell services...he'll take you just about anywhere!
Check out the pool in the back! New slide, water playground for the little ones, and a snack bar!
Very nice rooms, very clean,great service
Nice place for a couples getaway.
Skip the studio and go for the one bedroom. It's like having your own apartment.
A: Our grand Villa was a mess.. Air was working on and off, door handles and fixtures were falling off, dryer didn't work.. B: Its quite a pain to get anywhere honestly, we've bussed to the lodge..
Watch out for the lizards when you're walking. They are everywhere
This is one of the best rooms on property. You get a great sunset, music from Downtown and walking distance to adult beverages. It cuts down on using the buses.
Like the resort. It is a great place if you can't get in anywhere else. Don't buy the refillable mug. But this is a property wide issue that Disney needs to address.
Quiet resort, rooms are typical size DVC studios. Community hall has games and movies you can borrow for rainy days. The grandstand pool is nice and not as crowded. And it's a short walk to main lobby
Really great place to stay on property. 1 bedroom villa is great! Next to downtown, and EASY access to MK and Epcot. Our villa was just refurbished - absolutely great!
My home resort, love it. Its proximity to DTD is a huge plus. I've stayed at or visited many of the resorts--all have issues at times with the buses. Even the deluxe resorts. Still an amazing system.
The water slides are amazing.
If using Disney Transportation, plan on 90 minutes to from any destination, 45-60 minutes for the direct buses to the parks. We'll always rent a car on future trips b/c we wasted time on the buses.
If your looking for convenience, unfortunately this isnt the best choice.
Mint julep, saratoga lager, crab cakes and the lamb chops are worth it. Beware of the screamin kids though!
Excellent bell service staff. My wife had to go the hospital and they were terrific helping us out.
Bus service is second rate. Took over an hour to get back one night. Stay at hotel with Monorail service if possible.
Nice beds n great for taking a walk
Very close to Downtown Disney, and has a fabulous spa and workout center.
This Walt Disney World Resort is by far my favorite resort. Stayed back there in 09 and staying there again Christmas. I am going to miss staying at Bay Lake Tower. I love the 2 bedroom here at DSSRAS
Bring lots of money... Arcades can be expensive
By far the best for adults with no kids. Very quiet.
The Birthday surprise is super cute! Def. worth if it your traveling here for a little guys birthday.
Fast access to Downtown Disney, a bit of a drive everywhere else. On site restaurants are definitely worth a try, especially the flatbread sandwiches!
It's a bit out of the way, but the pools are nice. Definitely a good place if you like strolling to Downtown Disney.
The buses never come make sure you give yourself an hour and a half head start to ensure you get to your destination on time!!
Love this place and Vito at the pool bar makes the BEST piña coladas!!!
Very long wait for a shuttle if you don't want to walk all the way to your room
This place sucks. Far from everything. Room is tiny and expensive.
Come early....the buses come and go all day long, but the best buses come early in the day! Oh and leave the kids at home!
Great main pool! Activities for kids in the afternoon and nice chairs for adults. Plus a bar!
A bit too quiet for my taste. Not a good choice if you are used to staying at a centrally located resort.
Love the new treehouse!
Watch a beautiful sunset across the lake near the Paddock to end the evening in a magical way.
I'm reading the comment from 2010/2011 and it seems not much has changed. The buses are horrible and take forever to show up no matter where you are going. Other than that no complaints.
Don't get the Meatloaf! Terrible!
Like home only neater.
Favorite Disney resort by far! Convenient to everything, spacious villas, comfortable amenities.
Beautiful villas, but the pools are freezing and the mugs are now a ripoff. There's a chip in them that limits your ability to get drinks as you please, and you pay by the day as well as for the cup.
Love being able to walk around and hit the pools. Bus stops are close, catching the ferry to Downtown Disney. Best perk is having the golf course so close
Call ahead for the Mickey express. They start at 430am...
Love the vibe by the pool
If you stay three nights, try to stretch out your in room coffee use. Costs an extra $3 for another packet to brew in the room. Guess the thousands we invested into DVC don't cover that.
