    Hi there Mom's! We are staying at Saratoga Springs Resort in August. We would like to be able to walk to Downtown Disney but also be near to the main resort area. Which area of the resort do you think would be best to stay at as it looks so big!!

    Hi Lyndsey,

    It's so lovely to see a question from a fellow Brit!

    Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is a beautiful Victorian-style resort situated on the shores of Village Lake. It is indeed a large resort with the grounds and buildings covering a huge 65 acres in total.

    The Congress Park section (1101-2836) is located closest to Downtown Disney which is about a 10 minute walk away.

    The Springs sections (3101-4436) are located closest to the Carriage House which houses check-in, Magical Express Bus pick up/drop off, the main swimming pool, guest laundry area and gift shop etc..

    It is also possible to travel to Downtown Disney by Bus or Boat from this Resort. The Ferry Dock is located behind the Carriage House and runs approximately every half-hour until about 11.30 pm. 

    I hope that this helps you to decide which area to request and wish you a magical holiday!
