Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa at the Walt Disney World Resort has been open since 2004. While it has always been a popular destination for Disney Vacation Club members, Saratoga Springs has recently seen a dramatic increase in popularity. The demand for the resort has been so high, that the cost to stay at the resort has just been increased.
Previously, Disney Vacation Club members who wanted to stay at the Saratoga Springs resort would have a base point price of $165 per point. Due to the hotel’s extreme popularity, that base price point has increased to $180 per point.
For those who are unfamiliar with how Disney Vacation Club works — Guests who wish to join the Disney Vacation Club must first buy a certain number of points for a certain cost based on which resort they first choose. The minimum number of points purchased must be 100 (this can be variable) so, a Guest who wants to join the DVC and stay at Saratoga Springs must purchase a minimum of 100 points at the current cost of $180 per point.
Saratoga Springs is located in the Disney Springs resort area and is considered a Deluxe Villa Resort. It is described by the Disney World website below:
Inspired by historic Saratoga Springs—a late-1800s’ New York retreat famous for its spas and horse racing—this charming, Victorian-style Resort hotel is nestled between rolling golf course greens and the shimmering Lake Buena Vista. Delight in stately Studios and multi-bedroom Villas, dazzling pools and a spa.
While the price per point for Saratoga Springs has increased, Guests who purchase the points through DVC can still receive some discounts that can really add up. For first-time members who purchase a minimum of 150 points for Saratoga Springs, they will receive a discount of $3 per point.
The more points purchased, the higher the discount. A discount of $8 per point will be applied to 200 point purchases, and Guests can receive as much as $25 off per point when they purchase at least 1,000 points.
