We pick up where we left off in the the Saratoga Springs Review show. Episode 063 covers transportation, room refurbishment, recommendations, and we address the commonly held believe that “Saratoga Springs is the Resort of Last Resort.”
The first half of our Saratoga Springs Resort review show. In this episode, DVC Members, Chad, Mary Anne, Samantha and Randy discuss our love of the SSR resort. We cover resort areas and room requests, resort amenities, swimming pools, restaurants and bars at the resort, and the resort theming.

Part of the Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort series, we’re heading over to Senses Spa. On today’s episode, Chad is joined by his wife Laura, Chris Salata (Episode 015), and Ella Porter (Episode 016), to discuss their experiences with the Senses Spas at Walt Disney World. In E015, Chris had challenged Chad to try a spa experience while on vacation, assuring that his “man card” would not be revoked. We discuss Disney spa services with more emphasis on Senses Spa at Saratoga Springs.
If you own Saratoga Springs, you own a vacation home on a golf course! Lake Buena Vista Golf course surrounds the SSR resort. The primary focus of today’s show is the Lake Buena Vista golf course; however, we also touch on the other golfing opportunities at Walt Disney World.
When we were casting the show, Alicia convinced me that golf is an excellent family show. We put together a Lake Buena Vista Golf Course review show only using family members. Chad’s cousin Hunter, who recently took up the sport of golf, joins the show. Given the fact that Alicia’s family owns the Golden Sands Golf Course and Bucket Bar in Michigan, we thought it would be fun to have her sons join the show as well.
Steven Kriese, co-host of the DCL Podcast, joins us on Episode 050 of the My DVC Points Podcast. His family has been DVC members since 2013 and they own at Aulani and Copper Creek. Given that 11 or the 15 DVC resorts are in Orlando and 13 of 15 are on the East coast, most members have Walt Disney World as their home park. In this episode we learn how a west coast family that loves cruises, runDisney and Aulani utilizes their membership!
