Has the refurb been completed in all areas of Saratoga Springs?
We we be in standard 1 bedroom the last week of this month. Need beds for 5.

Yes, all rooms are completed.

Just be aware that a handful of 1-beds do not have the single Murphy bed. It isn’t clear if these are HA rooms, but there is a disclaimer on the points chart that the 5th sleeper can be removed. Which probably explains why the WDW website hasn’t been updated to say “sleeps 5”.

The new refurbished rooms are just beautiful. I own there and have no problem saying that they are far nicer than the old decor. I think they are almost as nice as the Grand Floridian (and I own there as well) and have stayed at both resorts many, many times.

We have "5" ion our reservation. Do you think they would assign us a room without the 5th sleeper?

I think you’d be very unlucky if they did.

Thumbs down hate the refub

Our family hates the new refurbished.

There no desk any more. No dish rack for dishes. No bar stool chairs it very tight with 1bd and studio together not enough areas for every one to eat as family.

Even as just 1bd kitchen feels small now.

And there is no storage in the living room. No closet, no drawer space.

So even though my youngest is a lightweight and could sleep on the single Murphy, I don’t want two adult sons living out of a suitcase. I want them to be able to unpack and put their cases away, without having to come in and out of the master bedroom to get their clothes.

There is no actual drawer space but there is the coffee table. It has a lift up top to create a dining surface or workspace. Clothes and items can be stored in there if need be.
