Hi everyone! I’m in the process of updating/organizing my blog so please bare with me for a little while. Think of it this way: Every day you visit you’ll probably see something completely different haha (I’m a little indecisive).
Disney Springs is Disney’s shopping district. It’s previous name, Downtown Disney, explained it a little better. You will find shopping, dining and entertainment here. You do not need a park pass to enter DS and it is completely open to the public. I’ll talk about DS more in a later post.
- These two resorts are on the same grounds and share buses, boats and pools.
- Due to their cost, these are one of the most popular options for families who travel to Disney World for the first time.
- Growing up, my family would go to Disney several times each year and this was our “home” resort. It will always, ALWAYS be my favorite on all of Disney property.
- This was the first Disney Vacation Club resort (more on DVC in a later post) which means this resort has the largest rooms on all of Disney property.
- Being the Disney
nerdsfans we are, my husband and I bought points into the DVC timeshare before we bought a house. When you buy into the Disney timeshare you select a “home” resort and Saratoga Springs is our home.
- This resort has many rooms that look out towards DS.
- The Treehouse Villas are accessed through Saratoga Springs.
- These villas only have one size, 3 bedroom. Unlike most resorts which have studios up to three bedroom villas.
- All Disney Springs Resorts can access DS via ferry boats as well as buses.
- Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course can be seen from these resorts. More information on the golf course can be found here.
- You can access the walking/biking trails to Disney Springs from Old Key West, Saratoga Springs and The Treehouse Villas.
