5 Star Resort
1960 Broadway Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Reminiscent of New York’s quaint, horse racing town of Saratoga Springs, this DVC Resort is the perfect place to sit back, relax and shop! Located just across the lake from Disney Springs, Saratoga Springs attracts guests who are looking to shop, dine and party the night away just across the lake. Opened in phases from 2004-2007, this 65-acre resort offers is the largest DVC Resort and several unique features like the Treehouse Villas, where families can literally sleep in a treehouse on their vacation. This massive 800+ villa resort is spread over 18 buildings in addition to the 60 free standing Treehouse Villas.

A Bit of History

This resort also has a rich and unique history. Originally the site of a residential community with a nearby shopping area called Lake Buena Vista Village (sound familiar?) built in the 1970s, the resort has gone through several transformations before becoming the Saratoga Springs that we know and love today.

After the planned residential community idea was scrapped by Disney executives, the area was turned into a resort in the 1980s. The Lake Buena Vista Village shopping area was changed to focus on Walt Disney World visitors and eventually would become Disney Springs.

In the 1990s the resort was once again changed, this time into the Disney Institute Resort, which was intended to be an interactive, educational vacation experience for Disney World visitors. After years of lackluster attendance to the Disney Institute, the resort was finally converted to the 7th Disney Vacation Club Resort and renamed Saratoga Springs.

Although the DVC resort officially opened in 2004, some of the buildings, including the 60 Treehouse Villages were actually built in the 1970s.

Accommodations

Saratoga Springs was in the midst of a 2-year refurbishment plan when the resort closed due to the coronavirus. Room renovations began in June 2019 and were expected to be completed in 2021. It is not clear when renovations will be completed but as of October 2020 two buildings have completed renovation.  The renovated rooms were beautifully updated with all new furniture, paint, cabinetry and countertops.

Standard vs. Preferred Rooms

Disney DVC Resort Review Saratoga Springs Resort bridge to Disney Springs
Bridge from Disney Springs to Saratoga Springs

All Saratoga Springs rooms are available in either Standard or Preferred options, except for the Treehouse Villas. The difference between Standard and Preferred rooms is their location.

Standard Rooms are located in The Grandstand, The Carousel and The Paddock buildings.
Preferred Rooms are located in The Springs and Congress Park and are closer to the resort’s main lobby, boat launch, pedestrian bridge to Disney Springs and other transportation options.

If you’re looking for convenience during your stay, the Preferred Rooms will save you time when heading in and out of the resort.

Views

Disney’s website is a bit confusing because Preferred Rooms are sometimes listed as Preferred/Water Views. In actuality, you cannot choose your room’s view when booking. Standard and Preferred only indicate your location at the resort, not the view you will have from your room.

Resort Dining

In addition to the multitude of restaurants available just across the lake at Disney Springs, Saratoga Springs is home to several great dining options right on property.

The Turf Club Bar and Grill

This racetrack themed table-service restaurant serves classic American cuisine daily for dinner only. Steak, seafood, pastas and more, there is plenty to choose from for the whole family.

The Turf Club Lounge

Head to the Turf’s bar for a few fun, old world cocktails like Mint Juleps and Blue Jockeys in a relaxed Turf Club Lounge. Sit back, munch on a few light snacks and enjoy the vistas of Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.

The Artist’s Palette

This quick service cafe serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and consists mainly of sandwiches, wraps and flatbreads. Although the menu looks fairly standard, selections here are quite interesting. Expect cheeseburger pizza, lobster sandwiches and robust salads full of fruit, nuts and cheese.

The Paddock Grill

Located poolside, the Paddock Grill also serves up three meals a day to fill the stomachs of the hungriest of pool goers. Fish tacos, burgers and sandwiches fill the menu for delicious, quick options.

Backstretch Pool Bar

Another poolside dining option at Saratoga Springs, Backstretch offers a few sandwiches, snacks and the perfect tropical frozen drinks to quench your thirst during a hot day poolside.

On the Rocks Pool Bar

Located at the High Rock Spring Pool, On the Rocks serves cocktails, beer, wine and smoothies. No food is available at this location but guests can easily pop over to the nearby Artist’s Palette for breakfast, lunch, dinner and light snacks.
