    Hi ! Trip to SSR 7/29 - 8/7 with 22 mth twins & DS14. Would like to be near playground, a pool and be able to walk to DTD if possible. Stayed in Grandstand in 2009 pre babies so location wasn't an issue. Any advise? Use trans. or rent car. Thanks

    Hi Linda:

    My family has enjoyed Saratoga Springs Resort on two vacations. The Resort is equestrian-themed and packed with activities, including two large main pool areas (plus several smaller pools), a deluxe spa and gym, and an arcade. The Resort is expansive, which some people like and others do not like.

    For me, a big advantage of Saratoga Springs is that parts of the Resort are within 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. If staying close to Downtown Disney, I would not recommend renting a car.  For example, 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. Request a room in the Congress Park section of Saratoga Springs to be close to Downtown Disney.  The Congress Park section also features a nearby playground and is near one of the smaller Resort pools.

    Enjoy your vacation.
