    Plan to stay at SSR on our next trip with a 2yo. Heard Congress Park area is good but want to be within walking distance of DTD and a bus stop. Can you recommend any 1 bed villa rooms in Congress Park that also have a good view of DTD from the room?

    Howdy and thanks so much for your question!!!  It made my heart happy as it brought back wonderful memories of my daughter's first trip to Walt Disney World when she was 13 months old.  We stayed in Congress Park at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa!  We loved the short 5 minute walk to and from Downtown Disney.  There were several times that she would take a nap in her stroller as we strolled down the path to and from the resort to Downtown Disney.  It was perfect!!

    With regards to your room request, the best suggestion I can offer is for you contact Disney Vacation Club Member Services (or the group where you made your reservation) and ask them to make a note on your reservation requesting a 1-Bedroom Villa in Congress Park with the best possible view of Downtown Disney.

    Then, when you are 10 days out from your check-in date, call Saratoga Springs at (407) 827-1100 and ensure that your request is noted.  The Cast Members that assign the rooms will do what they can to accommodate you.  Of course, there are no guarantees but they will do their best with the villas that are available for them to assign. 

    I'm so excited for you!  We love Saratoga Springs and I hope you enjoy your time there as much as we do.  Please let me know if you need further information as you continue planning your trip.  Thanks again for your question and have a magical day!
