Disney Saratoga Springs


We stayed at the Disney Saratoga Springs Resort. Here's Mike and Cam approaching our building after a long day out.

It's a huge, lovely resort, and although we were not super close to the main building/pool/restaurant, we had a bus stop right outside our building. And on a day when you've gotten up early and walked all over Disney World, it's soooo nice to have a bus stop just steps from your front door.

We had to walk around (or over a bridge) a large lake to get to the heart of Saratoga Springs.


Here are some shots of the pool. Well, the waterslide, really. It was a lovely pool, but it was a really fun waterslide. I went on it a few times myself. Yep, it was me and the kiddos all standing in line for the slide.


There were a TON of little lizards at the resort. They were probably about 8 inches long, nose to tail, and they were stand really still until you came close, then they'd scamper away. Magoo and I counted 31 of them on a walk from the pool to our room.


The other shot is a little frog Magoo caught as it was getting too close to the pool. He saved it!

There were also a few cranes at the resort. A white one (below) and a black one.


There was some other bird that had the body of a crane but the bill was rougher, kinda like a turkey. Mike thought it was kinda cool, but it looked at little weird to me. Like the Gonzo of birds.

Saratoga Springs was a lovely resort, as I'm sure all of the Disney hotels are. We had a lovely room, but it's hard to get good shots of a hotel room. So if you want to see more you can check out shots here. Everyone there was extremely helpful and did everything they could to make our stay a great one - which it was.

OK. I think that's it for the Disney trip. Next week - back to real life.
Thanks for stopping in and checking it out.
