Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa and Disney’s Old Key West Resort Undergoing Phased Refurbishments Beginning June 28th
Beginning next week, two of Disney’s Vacation Club resorts will be making refurbishments to their lobbies and porte-cochère.
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa lobby and porte-cochère refurbishment begins on June 28th. Crews will be making a few updates to the Guest arrival experience at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa in a multi-phase approach.
During phase one, the connecting hallway to the main lobby will close for refurbishment. Guests will continue to have access to the restrooms and The Artist’s Palette.
Phase two will last from July 12th through late September. The porte-cochère will be closed during this time. Disney’s Magical Express will continue to pick-up and drop-off Guests here, with a temporary walkway for Guests to reach the front desk and concierge. Guests driving personal vehicles will be directed to curbside check-in at the Disney Vacation Club Preview Center.
During phase three in early August, the connecting hallway will open and the main lobby will close. Front desk and concierge services will still be available in the hallway in addition to curbside check-in at the Disney Vacation Club Preview Center.
Once complete, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will feature an enhanced check-in experience offering an open, free-flowing layout with a variety of smaller counters to help Guests prepare for their vacation.
During the first phase of refurbishment, Guests will check-in as normal in the main lobby while the den area is closed.
In the second phase, the main lobby will close and front desk and concierge will temporarily move to the den. Cast Members will have access to backstage areas throughout the refurbishment.
Once complete, Disney’s Old Key West Resort will feature an enhanced check-in experience offering an open, free-flowing layout with a variety of smaller counters to help Guests of all ages prepare for their Walt Disney World vacation.
