Default Saratoga Springs Room Question

We just booked a 1 bedroom preferred here for May. Does anyone know the possibility of getting a DS facing balcony? Gonna request it anyway and see what happens.

Steve

You can certainly request it. I would also request ground floor because we have had the view blocked by trees, that’s disappointing because it’s my favorite view in all of WDW.

Good luck with your request.

Odds are in your favor, if you are in Congress Park. Just make sure you are specific with your section/building/view request at 10-12 days out from check-in.

There are a lot of DS facing balconies at SSR, so yes, odds are good.

We've stayed at SSR many times and have never had a bad view. The "worst" view we ever had was a view of the pool. Otherwise it's always been either DS or a Golf course view.
