And another bit of great information from the Disney Vacation Club on one of their newest destinations; the Treehouse Villas.
Nostalgic memories of childhood playtime translate into over-the-treetops family vacation time with the addition of Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. The treehouse villas combine a dash of luxury and comfort with the nostalgic memories of a childhood fortress. Nestled in natural forest glens, this new phase will revive Walt Disney World “treehouse living,” a cherished tradition from 1975-2002.
All the Comforts of Home
All 60 three-bedroom vacation homes, elevated 10 feet off the ground on pedestals and beams designed to blend into the forest environment, will sleep nine and are planned to offer modern luxuries such as partial cathedral ceilings, a barbecue grill and flat-panel TVs, all presented in a style dubbed “cabin casual.”
Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will feature its own planned pool area, in addition to sharing all that the main resort has to offer, including boat transportation between the Downtown Disney area and the Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort dock, tennis courts, bicycle rental, a children’s playground, a nearby spa and fitness center and High Rock Spring Pool, which boasts its own water slide and whirlpool spa.

- Environmental sensitivity was extremely important to Disney Imagineers when constructing the new treehouse villas. As a result, 5,178 tons, or 65.22 percent, of materials from demolition were recycled, including concrete and metals.
- When it comes to wiring, Disney Imagineers working on the treehouse villas went to great “lengths” to ensure every vacation home runs smoothly. Consequently, there are 87,858 lineal feet, or 16.6 miles, of wire for fiber optics, copper, telephones and CATV.
- To support all 60 treehouse villas, there are a total of 480 concrete columns.
