Thank you! This is totally foreign to me. I love your review, so thanks so much for taking the time to write it. It's the most thorough I've read yet!

Do you happen to have any idea what the bath treatment is listed on the menu? I am not sure whether to go for the manicure or the bath treatment. $65 seems steep for 25 minutes!

I'm just not sure my mum would feel that 'relaxed' after a manicure. If only I had more money!

Thank you! The bath treatments are nice, I have had them at other spas. they fill a bath with wonderful aromatherapy oils and usually will exfoliate you and give you time to relax. is it worth $65? probably not, but it is more of a "spa" experience then a mani for $45 which is very steep imo.I would say the bath is probably more relaxing but either would be a great way to experience the spa!

Saratoga Springs

Anybody got an update on when the SS spa is re opening, can only find 'late summer' on the web site. Do we think August is a possibility?

Do we think the new SSR Senses Spa menu will be the same as the GF Senses Spa Menu? Anybody got a link to the new SSR Spa menu? I can only find the GF Spa links.

Being in the UK, we can't access it. It is only available to those who can access the US website. A bit ridiculous and annoying really, since we can still make reservations!

The menu isn't the same- I started a thread asking for the SSR menu and a kind DIS'er copied the menu onto it. You can see it if you go to the list of threads I started (sorry- am on my phone and can't link).

SSR Senses Spa opened today! Yay, less than 90 days and we'll be there for our treatments. SO excited about that part of our trip. The spa looks heavenly! Check out the Disney Blog!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...s-opens-today/

Oh, and to the PP, the treatments are a little bit different that those at the GF. We had our treatments previously booked at GF, but switched them over. Prices are relatively the same though.
