Saratoga Springs is a Disney Vacation Club property at Walt Disney World. Found in the Disney Springs resort area, Saratoga Springs is our home resort. As our home resort, we’re able to book our accommodations at Saratoga Springs 11 months out and it’s one of the largest Disney Vacation Club resorts on property, so there are more rooms available. There are 4 kinds of villas at Saratoga Springs: Deluxe Studio, 1 bedroom villas, 2 bedroom villas and 3 bedroom villas. Today’s post is going to tell you everything you need to know about the Deluxe Studios at Saratoga Springs. For a full review of the Saratoga Springs resort check out this previous link.
We’ve stayed at a Deluxe Studio at Saratoga Springs twice in the last 5 years. Once in The Grandstand Buildings and most recently in The Paddock. Depending on where your Deluxe Studio is located, the price will fluctuate. A studio in a preferred building, The Springs and Congress Park, will run 13 points per night to 28 points per night (the points fluctuate depending on the season and the day of the week). For those paying out of pocket it will cost around $459 per night. A studio in any of the other buildings, The Paddock, The Carousel and The Grandstand, will cost 11 to 25 points per night or $397 per night. For more information on the DVC point system click this link. The perk of staying in the preferred buildings is your closer to the main building which is home to the feature pool, dining locations, and the lobby. The other buildings do have their own pools, including Paddock’s pool which is one of my favourites on property, with the exception of The Carousel. The waterslide at the Paddock pool is actually the fourth largest on Walt Disney World property.
No matter where your Deluxe Studio is located it will house up to four guests. Each studio has a queen size bed and a double size pull out couch. It’s going to be a little larger than your average hotel room, with a spacious entry, a great place for storing your stroller. A kitchenette, which has a mini fridge, a sink, cupboards with bowls, cups and utensils.
There’s also a coffee maker, toaster and microwave. On the opposite side of the kitchenette is your bathroom area with a vanity. The generous closet is along the wall, with a playpen, iron and ironing board, along with plenty of hangers for your jackets, dresses, dress shirts and a princess costume or two. The actual bathroom has a toilet and a shower/tub.
The main room has your queen size bed, bedside table, and a pull out couch. A patio door takes you to either your balcony or your patio depending on what floor you’re on. If you have a preference, use this trick from this previous post to get a room on the floor you want.
The remainder of the room has two chairs and a little table, perfect for eating a light breakfast before heading to the parks, and a bureau housing your rooms TV.
There’s really nothing spectacular about these rooms. If you plan on spending a lot of time at the resort than these rooms don’t quite accommodate for that. But they’re ideal for a vacation that’s filled with park days and pool days. For more reviews on other resorts and other rooms, check out my resort page on Pinterest. Happy Planning, Friends.
