    We are going to be staying at the Saratoga. Can we request which section we want to stay in? If so do you think that Congress Park or the Springs is better? We plan on walking to DTD but also will be eating at the resort & visiting the main pool.

    Hi Stacey:

    My family has enjoyed Saratoga Springs Resort on a few vacations. A big advantage of Saratoga Springs is that parts of the resort are within short walking distance to the restaurants, shops, and attractions in Downtown Disney. In addition to quick and easy access to Downtown Disney, being close to Downtown Disney also means you can also take advantage of direct buses from Downtown Disney to other resorts. When we travel to Disney, my family often likes to eat at restaurants at other resorts. When staying at Saratoga Springs, we can save time and still use Disney's free transportation system with a quick walk to Downtown Disney to catch a direct bus to the resort destination without having to make a transfer. You can request a building to be in, but it's not guaranteed. Request a room in the Congress Park section of Saratoga Springs to be close to Downtown Disney. It's not necessarily close to the main building, but we've found that the benefits of being close to Downtown Disney outweigh the benefits of being close to the Main Building. If you want to be closest to the main building, request the Springs section.

    Either way, enjoy your vacation.
