Thanks
You can certainly ask! She met me over at the Shades of Green last month. I am calling tomorrow to see if she can come over to the Beach Club next week!

"My First Massage" for Youth

I can't find any info on the "My First Massage".
Can someone tell me about it. We are staying at Saratoga Springs in early November. My girls have never had a massage, and really want one.


Thank You!

SSR Spa

Does anybody know if a MT by the name of Damien still works there? By chance I have had treatments with Damien for the last three years and its some of the best DT massage I have experienced. The pressure and professionalism was excellent.

BC Spa facilities

Have the BC (Ship shape) Health club facilitates been upgraded / refurbished in the last 10 years? I note the Disney web site quotes mens and womans' sauna and steam rooms. I seem to remember some very tired coed facilities, has anything changed???

Manicure and Hydro Massage at SSR?

Heya-
Has anyone recently been out to SSR and done either of these? I had been playing around with surprising my mom with something similar at the Spa at the GF, but since it's going to be closed during our dates this year, that's obviously out...

Worth the money? Skip it? Get a nail pen and do them at home?

Resort Spas

Has anyone had a massage at one of the resort Spas such as Animal Kingdom Lodge or the Wilderness Lodge and be able to give a quick review?

and to follow up - does anyone know if the 15% discount as part of the MYW package applies to the massages offered at the resort spas or do they only apply to Saratoga Springs (Niki Bryan)?

Hi Tx - I have had a massage several times at AKL, the locker rooms have sauna and steam and there are ?3 treatment rooms , the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. I have had firm pressure massage or a combination of firm and Swedish on the occasions I have been, ranging in length from 50 to 80 min. The best therapist I have had by far was Damien who gave some of the best firm pressure massage I have had at WDW. The service is unhurried and I suspect this is down to the quiet location. Booking the treatment was easy, you just check in at the gym reception desk. I didn't feel like I missed out not visiting a big spa like the GF or SSR. The AKL facility delivered on all counts and I left very please with the service.

Thanks for the feedback RDP! This is exactly what we were hoping for about the resorts spas other then the big ones such as SSR or GF. I think we are going to book at AKL now.

Trying to decide between the 3 treatment special for both me and DH or the Couples Retreat Ritual at the Mandara spa. We are staying at BWI, so this is closest for us
Anyone have any experience?
What is the grand suites with hydotherapy tubs?

I have had treatments at the Mandara, its very cool and relaxed and the staff are good. The mens locker room is quite small and the steam room is very small, can’t comment on the female locker room. However a lot of thought has gone into the surroundings and you feel a million miles away from the rest of the the hotel. I haven't had a couples treatments there so can’t comment. Have a great time whatever you decide.

Does any body know if the GF spa is being refurbished whilst GFV is being built, are they expanding it or making any additions to the facility?
