Refurbishments at Two Disney World Resorts
Disney sent out notification this morning that Disney’s two original DVC resorts Saratoga Springs and Old Key West will be undergoing refurbishments starting next week.
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa lobby and porte cochere refurbishment begins June 28
There’s some excited changes coming to the main building at Saratoga Springs Resort. This project is being split into three phases.
Let’s take a look:
- Phase 1: Beginning on June 28, 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 2: Starting from July 12 through late September, the porte cochere will be closed. 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.
- Phase 3: Kicking off in early August, the connecting hallway will open and the main lobby will close. Front desk and concierge services will be available in the hallway in addition to curbside check-in at the Disney Vacation Club Preview Center.
Once completed, guests stay at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will enjoy an “enhanced” check-in experience. The building renovations will provide an open concept free-flowing layout with smaller counters to help guests.
Disney’s Old Key West lobby refurbishment begins June 28
Over at Old Key West Disney will be updated the guest check-in area starting next week.
During the initial 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 the front desk as well as concierge services will move to the den.
Once complete, Disney’s Old Key West Resort will feature enhanced check-in experience offering the same open layout with smaller check-in stations.
