  • What happened to today’s YouTube video about SSR? It was briefly available and now it’s gone.

    • It’s back! We had to take it down briefly due to an issue. 🙂

      • We are owners at Saratoga Springs and agree that it doesn’t get the love it deserves. It is so relaxing! In your show, you failed to talk about the pools and just barely mentioned the golf course. We enjoy all the pools – one of the quiet pools has a great view of Disney Springs (especially pretty at night as Disney Springs is all lit up). Lake Buena Vista Golf Course is great and is my husband’s favorite among the Disney golf courses. The resort has lots of walking/jogging paths and lovely landscaping. While the food definitely needs an upgrade, the rest of the resort is great!

  • Someone skipped a step in posting. The video is marked private.

    • We had to take it down due to an issue but it is all better now! 🙂

  • This video forces you to open a new tab and log into YouTube versus just playing in the above window. Is that normal?
    YES, OF Course I follow all of your channels on YouTube but its just easier to watch in the above window?!

    • We had to take down and re-edit the video… sorry for the trouble.

  • Video is private!

    • Fixed now. We had to make a few small edits. 🙂

  • The video doesn’t work. 🙁

  • We bought SSR in December 2006. We have never had a bad experience at this resort. We have tried to stay at all the other resorts and have managed to experience about half of them. We really like SSR, but as you mentioned, the food service is weak.

  • Just back from a 5 night stay in a 1 bedroom preferred view villa (Congress Park). The refurb is beautiful, view is nice (though it really does not compare to a boardwalk view), and access to Disney Springs is as easy as described. That said, if you depend on Disney transportation, have another think. The preferred view villas (Congress Park and The Springs) are the last stops for Disney transportation. During the morning rush – defined as anytime from park open to around noon – the buses fill up at the first three stops in SSR and by-pass the last two (no room for anyone else). If you want to get to the parks in the morning, either rideshare or have a car. (I personally will NEVER stay at SSR again without a car.)

    Since DME will not be included in the resort stay starting next year, a rental car and another stay at SSR may be in our future.

  • We recently(May 1) stayed at Saratoga Springs and was pleasantly surprised by the updated Deluxe Studio that we were in. Not only is the room roomier(thanks to the Murphy Bed), but the shower is the biggest improvement. We had an accessible room, so we were able to walk right in. No more teeny tiny shower, so thank you for that. Of course, it’s always an added bonus to be able to walk to Disney Springs.
