    I have recently become more active with fitness and would like to continue through vacation. We will be staying at Saratoga Springs and was wondering what type of fitness opportunities there may be available at the resort. Thanks!

    Hiya Chris,

    Congratulations on adopting a healthy, active lifestyle. Magical minds think alike as the planDisney panelists recently shared our Top Tips for Staying Fit on a Disney Vacation.  Let's talk specifically about ways to keep you fit as a fiddle during your stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa.

    For reference, I walk 20,000 steps on an average park day. Bonus steps can be collected on the jogging paths around Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa. There's a 1.4 and a 0.8-mile loop around the resort, which are conveniently displayed at various points along the path. Either of these loops can be combined with a journey down the Saratoga Springs Nature Path and the 1.4-mile path around nearby Disney's Old Key West Resort for your very own runDisney event.

    My family recently took the Saratoga Springs Nature Path when walking from the Treehouse Villas at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa to Olivia's at Disney's Old Key West Resort for brunch. This journey includes opportunities to learn about native wildlife and admire the grounds of Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course. Speaking of golf, book a tee time for Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course online to give your body and mind a good workout.

    If you're looking for a familiar gym setting with a variety of cardio equipment, free weights, benches, and circuit training machines, the health club at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa is currently open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. each day. The health club is found in the building next to The Artist's Palette, close to the High Rock Spring Pool. 

    On warmer days, the leisure pool at Congress Park is a cool place for a cardio fix. In between laps, enjoy views of Disney Springs. You may even catch the Aerophile in flight!  

    My last tip for an adventuresome workout at Disney's Saratoga Springs and Spa is to stop by Horsing Around Rentals, which is located across from The Springs bus station by the High Rock Spring Pool. Here you can check out complimentary tennis racquets and tennis balls for use on the resort's 2 clay tennis courts, borrow a basketball, or rent bikes. You can even gather the family and rent a 2- or 4-person Surrey Bike.

    As Mary Poppins once claimed, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun." I hope you have a great time combining fitness and fun as you explore the wide variety of options at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa.

    Choose magic,
