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.

The Snow White 'Heart Box' by eFX Collectibles
BURBANK, Calif. (June 9, 2009) — Bringing together the masterful storytelling of Disney with the renowned artistry of eFX Inc., an all-new line of limited-edition collectibles will be unveiled this September, inspired by some of Disney’s classic films and the comic antics of the Muppets.
These new collectibles extend the magic of Disney into pieces that recall the beauty and spectacle that is unique to Disney, beginning with a tribute to the “fairest of them all,” SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS.
eFX plans to preview several pieces from its new Disney collection during San Diego Comic-Con in July, and at Disney’s first-ever D23 Expo, Sept. 10 to Sept. 13 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Despite presumably being ready for an Annual Passholder and DVC preview in late June, the official re-opening date for the Hall of Presidents has been shifted from July 2 to July 4.
At Old Key West, the Miller’s Road Quiet Pool will be closed from June 15 through June 26 and the South Point Road Quiet Pool will be closed from August 3 through August 21.

Although on the surface it’s not quite as impressive as presenting Disneyland Paris in 3D, the theme park allowed Google to take its Street View car on a tour of Main Street, USA, Adventureland, Fantasyland, Walt Disney Studios and more. As a bonus, the Google team undertook this task in October, as the park celebrates Halloween. So be on the lookout for Halloween decor and pumpkinheaded folk painting the park orange. Needless to say, a few familiar faces also pop up along the way. Read more about the new DLP Street View here, or check it out right now here.
