While the hallway is updated, this entrance is unavailable.

During phase three in early August, the connecting hallway will open, and the main lobby will close. The 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.
