    Beautiful resort with great facilities.

    I have no idea why this resort gets so much nonsense talked about it! We stayed here for 10 nights in October as a family of three in a studio in the Grandstand section and loved it! I requested a room in the Paddock area, but that came lower down the list than a top floor room in the 23 line, which we received and were grateful for. The Grandstand area was nice and very quiet. We had a beautiful room with a great view. I love these refurbishments Disney are making, going towards a lighter, cleaner look than dark wood. The murphy bed pulled down from the wall and my daughter said it was really comfortable. Our bed was super comfortable. There was plenty of storage space with the massive drawer unit and a big wardrobe. Glad to see no awful shower curtains! People say that this resort is too big, and whilst it is large, it's not horrific. We had a car so didn't use the buses often, but when we did they were fine, no issues, clean, on time, friendly drivers, close bus stops. We were in the furthest building in our section and the walk to the lobby was 5 minutes, I really don't get what people complain about. It's designed so the lobby is relatively easy to access, apart from maybe the carousel section. Being so close to Disney Springs is great and we both walked and used the boat transport. We used the Paddock Pool and the High Rock Pools because they have slides for our daughter. They were nice, but a little cool in the evenings. Great cast members at the pools. So much fun. We didn't eat at The Turf bar as it looked too quiet and outdated for us. The Quick Service was tasty and convenient. We are sold on Saratoga and would definitely return in the future.

    Beautifully updated rooms. Helpful staff.

    Beautiful property. Great rooms. Very large resort. Staff was very helpful when we had a medical emergency. I really appreciated their kindness and assistance. The recently renovated rooms are absolutely gorgeous and our location in Congress was great for visiting Disney Springs. Buses to magic kingdom and Epcot were prompt and very efficient. The walk to the lobby and feature pool was a lot but it was all worth it.

    Disappointed. We went during spring break and this was one of the only “deluxe” hotels left that provided early entry. Besides the early entry it is NOT even close to the same level as the other deluxe hotels. It feels motel-y, doors are on the outside. Hotel lobby staff are not knowledgeable, no one could actually help me or understood the Disney ticketing system. The room was wheelchair accessible (wasn’t needed or requested) and was badly in need of maintenance. Bus or Uber is the only transportation. Pool is loud and crowded. Room was not cleaned well, piles of dust under the bed and the shower leaked. I would not stay again.

    A relaxing vacation!

    I traveled with my husband the third week of March. We shared a studio room which was spacious and comfortable. My only complaint was that they only supplied disposable paper plates and plastic utensils. This was quickly remedied by contacting housekeeping and simply asking for ceramic dinnerware. They offered buses to the Disney parks and a boat ride to Disney Springs. All the employees we had contact with were extremely helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to returning!

    Resort in a Great Location

    This is a wonderful location connected to Disney Springs by a walking path or take a short drive. The resort is very spread out with a golf course traversing the property. Parking can usually be found near your room. However, depending upon where you are on property you may be a fairly long distance from the lobby and other amenities. The location is about as centrally located as you can get in relation to all of the Disney theme parks. It is extremely close to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The only reason this location doesn't get a five is that the rooms are slightly smaller than most of the comparable resorts in this category. They still offer the same level of amenities, but with a little less square footage.
