DVC Resort Activities: Saratoga Springs

April 10, 2023

Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is known for its proximity to Disney Springs and its quiet atmosphere.  However, in addition to the pools, there are lots of activities to enjoy at the resort without heading to the parks.  You can always find out the latest recreation activities by checking the resort recreation calendar or asking a cast member when you are on site since they are subject to change. Here’s a glimpse at the Saratoga Springs Resort Activities you can look forward to during your next stay!

Arts and Crafts – Saratoga Springs

Community Hall

Saratoga Springs has one of the larger community halls among the DVC resorts.  It offers ping pong, foosball, movies, board games, and arts and crafts.  For arts and crafts, you’ll find ceramic painting, no-sew vacation pillows, and paint your own canvas or magnet.  The community hall is also where you can rent equipment for the basketball and tennis courts and barbeque pavilions.  

Currently, the community hall is featuring an animation class at 2pm on Wednesdays for an extra fee.  The class teaches you how to draw classic Disney characters, and you receive an exclusive pin.  The community hall is open from 10am to 10pm daily.

Create your own tie-dye Mickey t-shirt!  You can find this activity just outside of the community hall from 2:30pm to 3:30pm each day.
