Senses Spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs

It is a special day in Walt Disney World. The newly reimagined Senses Spa at Saratoga Springs Resort opens TODAY!

I jumped at the chance to check out the redesign. I was lucky to get to visit and get a massage at the spa at the Grand Floridian in February, so I was curious to see the differences between the two. While they may share the bulk of the same spa menu, one thing they do not share is the same theming and décor. I’m not sure what I was expecting but I was blown away!

Dark woods, stone, and Native American influences are sprinkled throughout the large space. We saw lots of cool touches like Italian mosaics, hummingbirds, and even hidden Mickeys. The idea here is to look like a 19th century wellness retreat in New York.

I am not going to go into the spa menu as much as just a tour of the space since I already covered the basics in my last spa post. But I did want to share with you the beauty of this location.

There is a mani/pedi room with the same amazing massage chairs you will find at the Grand Floridian spa.

There are several types of treatment rooms available, all with gorgeous lighting and great touches like hot bar racks to keep your robe warm.

The walls have a beautiful texture to them, and I just loved these outdoorsy light fixtures in the hallways.

Can you spot the hummingbird in the relaxation room? This is where you relax and wait before your treatment. By the way, these lounge chairs are so soft. I didn’t lay down because I knew I would never get back up!

The men’s and women’s locker rooms have these plunge pools, as well as my favorite heated tiled chairs. Unfortunately, they weren’t turned on or I would have been taking a quick nap. What a great treat after participating in a runDisney race, huh my fellow runners? Something to think about!

The tiles on the wall were imported from Italy. Check out that hummingbird! Also, can you find the hidden Mickey?

We took a peek into the locker room which resembles the one at the Grand Floridian, and they offer all the same amenities.

The bathrooms have blow dryers, straighteners, and other items you may need to primp after a relaxing massage.

I can’t wait to come back in the fall and get a treatment here. We were told about special seasonal offerings that sound so amazing. I really want a pumpkin enzyme facial!

QOTD: What is your favorite spa treatment? Have you been to one of Disney’s spas?

  1. I love getting facials. Christine and I many need to treat ourselves after one of our races coming up at WDW! Everything looks beautiful and so relaxing too!

  2. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about booking a treatment during W&D or Marathon Weekend! Thanks for sharing the pics!

  3. You’ve definitely inspired me :) I’ll start looking in to spa treatments for after the January half. I always treat my feet after a big race because they deserve to be pampered.

  4. I love facials and messages – I’m one of those whole package, spend-an-entire day-in-the-spa type girls :)

  5. Wow! I love spa. That place is full of wonders. It’s really tempting to go there. I would like to visit that place soon. Anyway, thanks for sharing the website. :-)

  6. Looks amazing! Can’t wait to try one day!

    Ack…. I always book a treatment for after the Goofy (this year Dopey). Your post means I need to book earlier than usual because it’s going to be more popular! Thanks for the reminder.

  8. I’ve never used the spa services at Disney, but my mom and her husband honeymooned at The Grand Floridian and she said the spa packages there are out of this world! I hope to someday spend many hours in a Disney spa :)

  9. WOW that’s gorgeous in there! I think my favorite spa treatment is a massage–it just helps me so much mentally and physically!

    Never been to a disney spa, now I really want to!

  10. SO fun! We’ll definitely have to camp out here during our next girl’s trip!

  11. I am hoping to try this when we are there for Princess weekend; right now we have reservations at Saratoga Springs so we will be close!

  12. Wow! Looks sooo amazing!

  13. I would like to say I can’t find the hidden Mickey because I am reading on a small screen, but really where is he? Haha

    • LOL!! ok, from the left where the branch starts, follow it to where it “branches off” in the wide “V” shape, and mickey is darker green right in the crook of where it branches off into two branches. (how many times can I say the word branch?)
