My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!
Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa photographed in November 2008:
Designed to recall the golden era of the real upstate New York resort area, Saratoga Springs is a Victorian themed complex with a central check-in and amenities building group that surrounds the main pool area called High Rock Spring Pool. Details in this area enhance the recollection of natural spings, horseracing, gaming, and high society that was prevalent in the area in the late 19th century. Rooms are in grand midrise buildings that line several small formal lakes and several larger freeform ones.
