If you are planning an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida and you’re going to stay at Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa or you are thinking about staying at Saratoga Springs, then check out our 10 tips for staying at Saratoga Springs.
1Book through David’s Vacation Club Rentals
You can get some incredibly great rates on this hotel if you book through David’s Vacation Club Rentals. We’re talking way cheaper than if you booked through Disney, and the prices through vacation club rentals can get so low that I’ve actually spent less staying at Saratoga Springs than I did at Disney value hotels! And you won’t have to pay for parking if you book through David’s, too. We go over how to book through David’s here.
2Opt for a Preferred View
This hotel is very spread out, so I would opt for a preferred view, especially if you are flying into Orlando and you don’t have a car. If you do end up with a room that isn’t a preferred view, then take advantage of the bus system when you want to say get to the food court.
3Bring Food from Home
Take advantage of the kitchen area of this hotel by bringing food from home if you drive. You’ve got a refrigerator, microwave, silverware, plates, a table in your room and there are even picnic tables around the resort if you like eating outdoors. Even if you fly into Orlando, you can get food delivered from Amazon’s Prime Pantry Now.
4Earn Swagbucks for Dining
Saratoga Springs does have some good restaurants, so consider earning Swagbucks to save money on dining here. Here are our tips on how to use Swagbucks to save on dining.
5Walk to Disney Springs & take the boat
Saratoga Springs is the only Disney World hotel that is within walking distance of Disney Springs, which is a great shopping & dining destination at Walt Disney World Resort. Both walking and taking the boat to Disney Springs from Saratoga Springs is fun, so I would make sure I did both. The walk has amazing views and the boat not only has great views, but is almost like a ride in and of itself!
6Eat at T-Rex at Disney Springs
When you do get to Disney Springs, make sure you eat at T-Rex. It is one of the most fun restaurants in all of Walt Disney World Resort!
7Eat the desserts at Artist Point
The desserts at Artist’s Palette are delicious. Don’t leave this resort without trying one! Your tastebuds will thank me later.
8Relax at the pool
Saratoga Springs is one of the most relaxing hotels at Walt Disney World Resort. Take advantage of the peacefulness by relaxing out at one of the resort’s pools.
9Enjoy services at the spa
Saratoga Springs is one of the only hotels at Walt Disney World Resort that has a spa. Take advantage of this during your stay so that you can relax even more!
10Be Prepared for the Parks
When you stay at Saratoga Springs, you’re probably going to visit one or all of the Disney parks (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach). Here are 10 things you can buy ahead of time that will save money.
