This Disney resort and spa is an equestrian-themed, Victorian-style Disney Deluxe Villa Resort on the shores of Village Lake. Inspired by historic Saratoga Springs, a late-1800s New York retreat famous for its spas and horse racing, the buildings and grounds of this 65-acre resort are truly inviting. Guests can take a stroll among green rolling hills and discover gurgling fountains and placid lakes. The villas within each of the resort's 6 sections (The Springs, The Paddock, Congress Park, The Carousel, The Grandstand and The Treehouse Villas) offer many comforts of home, such as full kitchens and washer/dryers, with charming Victorian touches. The 3-bedroom grand villas are large enough to sleep up to 12 people, making them ideal for large groups such as family reunions. There are 840 rooms in total at this resort. Guests are welcomed in the lobby with a 24-hour reception, a currency exchange, lift access to the upper floors, and a newspaper stand. A games room, children's playground, bar, restaurant, and room and laundry services (both for additional fees) also feature.Disney's Magical Express offers a free airport shuttle (Orlando International Airport), luggage delivery and airline check-in (for most airlines) for guests staying at a Disney resort.
