LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The latest Disney Vacation Club (DVC) property, Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, has opened its doors.

The new resort area includes 60 three-bedroom villa “treehouses,” which are built on pedestals amid forested glens, giving guests great views of surrounding nature.

According to Jim Lewis, president of DVC, the Treehouse Villas add new character to the vacation properties available in the DVC portfolio.

“Our founder Walt Disney was well-known for having one foot in the past and one in the future.  This new resort development shares that dynamic sensibility, blending modern luxury and design with the nostalgic spirit of one of the most storied resorts at the Walt Disney World Resort,” he said.

Southwest Airlines Begins Resort Airline Check-in Pilot Program at Pop Century

Southwest Airlines

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Southwest Airlines is now piloting the Resort Airline Check-in service at Walt Disney World’s Pop Century resort.

It’s been a major source of confusion which continues to persist today as much as it has since the inception of Disney’s Magical Express in 2005: it is often thought that as a non-participating airline, that guests flying into MCO on SWA can not take advantage of amenities such as the luggage delivery service aspect of DME.

Tour and Photo Gallery of Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village

Swahili for necklace, Kidani promises to be the jewel of the Walt Disney World resorts. From the moment you walk up to the resort, you are immediately greeted with a sense of what the resort is about: a beautiful style with such intricacies that it could be said that even the details have details.

For those who don’t know already, Kidani Village is considered half of Animal Kingdom Lodge. The original portion of the resort is now known as Jambo House. While the common areas of Kidani are smaller than those of Jambo, they are infinitely more impressive.
