Default New Saratoga Springs Renovations Look Great!!

I just saw a you tube video showing the new room renovations at Saratoga Springs Resort. While the theming was subdued, the furnishings are really really nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xvVjH0P4GI

Agree! I've seen a few videos of the new renovations and I'm excited to stay there now! We were ones that loved the location, but disliked the decor. The fact that there is an ACTUAL BED vs the pull out is a huge plus too!! I've seen video of the pull down beds being in 1BR and larger....anyone know if they'll also be in the studios?

I also think they look fantastic, and I'm hoping to get a refurbished room next June.

I've done some searching and I can't find anything on a schedule for what order the buildings are being refurbished. Does anyone know? I know the first two buildings are in Congress Park. Seems likely they will finish Congress Park first, but I'm wondering if they'll then go to Paddock next so that they have one preferred area followed by one Standard area.

The video states all preferred rooms will be refurbed first. I was also hoping for the Paddock area but that does not look to happen anytime soon.

Thanks - that's actually pretty impressive. REALLY glad to see the bedding for 5 and the transition away from sleeper mattresses. Our kids will LOVE this next time we are there, and the ability to return to 'normal' set-up for the day is so much easier than it is with the sleepers.

Great improvements!
