Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort Holiday Decor Photo Tour

One of my favorite holiday activities at Walt Disney World is touring the decorations at Disney Resort Hotels. The Walt Disney World Holiday Services team provides decor for a total of 780 locations within 41 different properties, with each and every location getting its own special theming. This year I'm taking you along on a photo tour of some of my favorite festooning. The best part of this holiday hotel hopping is that it's absolutely free!

Let's kick off the holiday tour with a look at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. Sitting on along the shore of Lake Buena Vista, this resort is inspired by historic Saratoga Springs, New York in the late-1800s. The retreat was revered for both its spas and horse racing, Disney's version offers guests a charming, Victorian-style Resort with plenty of equestrian details and recreations of local Saratoga Springs style.

The feeling at this resort is extra Christmas-y with plentiful green pine boughs and deep red roses to accompany the equestrian details about throughout its holiday decor. The lobby plays host to a towering evergreen with fun ornaments that reflect the feeling of Disney's Saratoga Springs.

I loved the hunting details used to decorate the tree, from tweed canteens and gilded riders, to a horseshoe of thick red roses and even a trophy cup!

2019 is a banner year for Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa as it is their first year making a foray into the Disney gingerbread tradition. The culinary team is particularly proud of their showpiece that takes the form of an entire gingerbread village.

I was really fond of this village gingerbread display. While the grand showpieces at many of the other resorts are certainly stunning, what was on display here was something that you could get ideas from to take home and incorporate into your own holiday traditions. It's displays like this one that hep revive the tradition of beautiful gingerbread houses in our homes.

Like the other Disney Resorts that offer special gingerbread displays, Saratoga Springs has a small gingerbread shop available so that you can get a taste of the treats that sweeten this holiday season. They even had a special mug to commemorate the 2019 Gingerbread.
