    Hi we are coming to WDW Nov 7 staying in a 2 bedroom villa in Saratoga Springs with a 4 and 2 year old with no car what would be the best room request for us? They love water is it still warm enough to use the pool ? any other advice is appreciated

    Hi Brad,

    You have chosen a beautiful Resort for your Disney World vacation! We are Disney Vacation Club Members and our home resort is Saratoga Springs.

    We rely solely on Disney transportation, as we never have a car with us. Our favorite area is called "Congress Park". Many of the rooms have views of Downtown Disney. In addition, they are just a short walk from the Carriage House area. I believe it takes us about 5-7 minutes (leisurely pushing a stroller) to get to the Carriage House which houses the check-in, High Rock Spring (main) Pool, Spa and Fitness Center, boat dock, restaurants and more. Congress Park also has a pedestrian walkway to Downtown Disney and a great pool of its own. The average high temperature in Orlando in November is 78.5. Coming from up north, I my kids definitely swim in that weather. Of course, the only thing predictable about weather is that it will be unpredictable, so it could be a lot cooler. Bring your swimsuits and hope for the best!

    Be sure to make reservations for dinner at the Turf Club Bar and Grill, it is one of Disney Dining's hidden gems! The meals we've had there are always fantastic.

    To request Congress Park, you'll want to call Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa directly at: 407-827-1100 nine days prior to your arrival. That is when the Resorts get their arrival lists, so they can't help you prior to that. When you call, ask to speak with the "Room Assigner". You'll provide him/her with your reservation information and tell them that you would like to be assigned to Congress Park. Be sure to ask again at check-in. With a little luck and pixie should be all set.

    Please note that while room requests are never guaranteed, Disney does do their best to honor them.

    Enjoy your time at Saratoga Springs and have a Magical Vacation!
