The lobby may be complete, but construction’s not done at the resort.

The exterior of the carriage house was refurbished in the spring of this year.

Saratoga Springs Resort has a circular lobby, with seating in the center and desks around the outside.

As with all of the recent lobby refurbishments, there is no longer one long counter but instead several desks to make the room more spacious and accessible.

A cute new addition is these giant portraits of horse characters from Disney films. One portrait hangs behind each desk.

This Shire horse is Angus, Merida’s horse in “Brave.”

Of course, the array of portraits wouldn’t be complete without Maximus from “Tangled.”

We had a hard time identifying this horse but believe it is Destiny from “Enchanted.”

Finally, a portrait of baby Pegasus from “Hercules” hangs above the children’s area in one corner of the lobby.

  1. Ugh. This is so much nicer and more thought out and cohesive than Old Key West. OKW could have at least kept the mural that has been there for a decade. It’s almost like more thought was put into this one overall.
