    Which area of Saratoga Springs are the two bedroom villas located? Congress park? I'm trying to plan how much time I need to set aside for walking to the buses or boats. Thank you.

    Hello Courtney!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is the perfect home base for your Walt Disney World Vacation. Not only does this resort offer spacious villas and beautiful gardens, but you’ll also find two feature pools, and be just a short walk to all the shopping and dining of Disney Springs!

    Courtney, Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is exclusively villas, and you’ll find 2 Bedroom Villas in every building, in every section of the resort. There are two booking categories to be aware of when considering where you might end up at this resort. There is a standard booking category and a preferred category. The preferred buildings are in The Springs which is close to The Carriage House (the main building), the pool, and dining, and in Congress Park which is closest to Disney Springs. The standard buildings include The Paddock, The Carousel, and The Grandstand.

    There are five bus stops located throughout the resort, so you shouldn’t usually be more than a 5-minute walk from your door to the bus stop. The boat launch is located at The Carriage House. Depending on which area of the resort you end up in, you should plan a 10 to 15-minute walk to the boat launch.

    While there are never any guarantees, you can place a request for which area you would prefer. I will say this is the one resort where my request hasn't been met recently, so know that while Cast Members will do their very best, a request is only a request and not a guarantee. You can do this by calling Disney Vacation Club if you are booked with your Disney Vacation Club Membership, your travel agent, or the Walt Disney World Travel Agency if you booked yourself.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Courtney. Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
