    How far is the Congress Park at Saratoga Springs to downtown Disney? is that the new Disney Springs?

    Hi Anna Rosa,

    I am happy to hEAR you are planning an upcoming visit at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. It is a stately, handsome Resort, with terrific equestrian theming. In fact, you just might stumble upon some of your favorite equestrian animated characters during your stay.

    Anna Rosa, the Congress Park area of Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is situated on Village Lake, the body of water which separates Disney Springs from Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. You are quite correct that Disney Springs is indeed the newly re-imagined Downtown Disney. If you have not yet had a chance to visit since its debut in the fall of 2015, you will be amazed at the expansive new scope of shopping, dining and entertainment options. It truly is a destination in and of itself, and a definite "Must-Do" for my family each trip.

    If you are staying at Congress Park, you will be located only a short walk from Disney Springs. Indeed, many of the Villas in this area of the Resort have direct views of Disney Springs from across Village Lake. In my view the close proximity to Disney Springs is one of the best perks of a stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. A convenient pedestrian walkway bridge is located in this area of the Resort, which provides easy and convenient access to Disney Springs.

    I hope you enjoy your upcoming time at Disney Springs. While there are so many dining options available, I highly recommend Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' for dinner, and a cupcake from Sprinkles for dessert!

    Happy Shopping, and Bon Appétit!
