    Kari - Thank you so much for answering my question about tickets! That helps me a lot. This is our first stay at Saratoga, do you know what is the best section to request if we want a shorter walk to DTD, is there a path? Anything else we should know? TY!!

    Howdy Caroline!

    I am so excited for you!  You are going to love staying at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa!

    I just spoke with a Cast Member at Saratoga Springs and in the last few weeks, there have been a few changes.  Downtown Disney is being transformed and new magic is being added.  With this new magic is new construction and the walkway from Saratoga Springs to Downtown Disney is currently closed (scheduled to open in 2014). 

    However, you can still get to Downtown Disney by bus or by boat.  Congress Park will be your best option for easiest access to the boat at the resort.  There is also a shuttle that runs throughout the resort that can get you to and from any point in the resort with ease.

    While you are at Saratoga Springs there are a few things I would recommend.  The spa is, of course, fantastic!  The Turf Club Bar and Grill is a great restaurant where you enjoy American cuisine in a racetrack clubhouse setting.  The food is great and the service is exceptional!  Another must do is to enjoy some fun in the sun at one of the five pools at the resort.  There are two themed pools and three leisure pools.  We love the pool and aquatic play area in The Paddock. So much fun!!
     
    I'm sorry the path to Downtown Disney is currently closed.  You might touch base a few days prior to your vacation and check the status of the construction.  Enjoy Saratoga Springs and please let me know if you need further information.  Thanks so much for your follow up question and have a magical day!
