From the Disney Parks Blog: When you walk into one of the newly renovated villas at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, you really notice a difference. I liked them before, but wow, they are really nice. The hardwood floors and whimsical window treatments caught my eye. And I personally think they nailed it with the bedding. The warm colors are very elegant while still capturing the playful nature of Key West. The villas also have fancy new granite countertops, pretty new light fixtures and of course flat screen TVs. The housekeeping staff sure has fun creating the towel animals placed throughout the villas. Check out the images shot this week.

From the Disney Parks Blog: Hi everyone…a cool new zero-entry feature pool will be ready for summer fun at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa — in 2011. It’ll take the place of one of the resort’s “quiet pools” at the Walt Disney World resort and will be nearly three times as big. I think it will be a real crowd pleaser for folks not staying near the popular High Rock Springs feature pool. When complete, the new themed area will include a 146-foot water slide, expanded deck, 1,200-square-foot kids’ play area, plus a quick-service poolside eatery.
WDWNT Reporter Jose Eber was able to get an up-close look at the Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, including the lobby and pool area, and has video to share of his experience:
