As one of the new features of Disney Vacation Club membership magic was added earlier this year. One of the new events was to feature the Spa discount and came with some extra benefits on certain nights. A few months ago, I decided to try the spa. I called member services to make my appointment, and then checked in at Saratoga on my appointment day.
One of the features for Facials was: Facial Enhancements with a choice of one of the following,
- Bright Eyes – Reduce fine lines, relieve puffy and stressed eyes, and target dark circles and signs of fatigue as you re-energize the eye area.
- Hydrating Lip Treatment – Gently erase dryness and fine lines during a hydrating and plumping experience sure to leave your lips looking voluptuous and youthful.
- Hand Brightener – Turn back the hands of time with this lightening, brightening hand treatment as you naturally say goodbye to hyper pigmentation and darks spots.
- Facial Boost – Customize your facial for specific areas of concern with one of 4 Facial Boosters, including: Firming Booster (eases the signs of aging), Anti-Blemish Booster (eases the signs of acne), Anti-Redness Booster (especially for Rosacea) and Lightening Booster (lightens pigmentation).
I chose a Facial Boost, the Anti-Blemish Booster.
It had been a long time since I had visited the Spa at Saratoga Springs, so I noticed that initially when you arrive it reminds you of the spa from Disney Cruise line. I was greeted and given a tour of the facility.
After changing I went into their relaxation room, which is a quiet serene area with chairs, muffins and water.
I got comfortable and then was called in by the Esthetician.
We walked around the hall to the treatment room. The Esthetician left while i changed and went into the treatment bed. Once I was ready she asked me which boost I wanted and started the facial. Before she started the facial she used a Clarisonic to clean my face and then she did almost 3 times worth of masks and treatments. The red rose facial was my favorite since it was featured and it smelled wonderful!
After I was done, I was escorted back to the relaxation room but I couldn’t stay since Todd was waiting for me. I went back and changed and then back to the lobby. When I checked out I learned that you can come early for your appointment and enjoy the whirlpool and sauna and relaxation room. I also learned that there is a day pass for about $20 for the spa so that you can go for just some relaxation.
I paid and was given a card that had a thank you since tip was already added and had product recommendations.
The only weird thing was the Red Rose products were not recommended, since they were featured I expected them to be. I also was asked to take an additional survey for the Disney Vacation Club event. The cast were very excited about this. After my survey I left to meet Todd and my relaxation time was over.
Overall while the cost is slightly higher than other places, I found the facial to be worth it since there were so many amenities and its a great way to take some time to relax. The cost was $150 for the facial plus 20% tip, but as a Disney Vacation Club member I received a 15% discount and the facial boost that was complementary was valued at $25.
I hope Disney Vacation Club will continue these events, they are a great perks to membership.
