Our Team's Shows About Saratoga Springs
DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there's something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.

Join Chad, Shannon, Mary Anne, and the My DVC Points Community as we kick off our summer shoot out series! Are you Team Old Key West or Team Saratoga? Given these are the last two resorts to sell out, sooner or later you will have to decide which resort you'll call home for your Disney vacation!
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.
In Episode 060, Brian Reed from Imagination Radio Network returns to discuss the history of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. Previously Brian joined us on episode 038 to discuss the history of the Polynesian resort. We discuss the history of both Disney Springs and the grounds known as Saratoga Springs Resort.
In Episode 057, Chad is joined by Jim Quicksell from Episode 017, Russ Clark from DVC Info and Episode 018, and first-time contributor Tammy Nutt. In this episode, the group is talking all about the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. We discuss room requests, transportation, parking, and the overall vibe of the Treehouse Villas. All things said and done we love the Treehouses but don't think they are a good fit for every family.
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.
