    Hi there! We will be staying at Saratoga Springs in a few weeks and have started our early check in. As I'm choosing a preferred area, I'm wondering how often the buses fill up (heading to the parks) before completing a full loop of the resort?

    Hi Dawn,

    I am thrilled to hEAR that you are getting close to your upcoming stay at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, which just happens to be one of my “Home” Resorts with Disney Vacation Club. It is a great Resort, with terrific equestrian theming. In fact, you just might stumble upon some of your favorite equestrian animated characters during your stay.

    The Preferred booking category which you mention includes all Villas located in Congress Park and The Springs sections of the Resort. These highly popular sections of the Resort are located close to The Carriage House, where the main lobby and check-in areas are located, with easy access to Disney Springs just a short walk away.

    As you may be aware, Congress Park and The Springs also happen to be the last stops for the Disney Resort buses which travel through the resort collecting guests travelling to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Water Parks, and Disney Springs. Therefore, during busier, peak travel periods, the buses can reach capacity before reaching the Congress Park and The Springs sections to pick up passengers. When this occurs, in most cases you can expect the Disney bus drivers to contact dispatch to ensure additional buses are sent as soon as possible. However, in my experience, other than when travelling at peak periods of the year, you should not have any difficulty when accessing buses from Congress Park and The Springs.

    Should you have any other questions as you continue planning your upcoming trip, please let us know; we are here to help. Wishing you a wonderful upcoming vacation at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa!
