    Great Disney resort. The only issue is having signs that point you towards your destination on the resort while on walking trails.

    Lovely hotel! Would recommend the Grandstand building as it's near the Artists palette restaurant, 2 pools, the lobby and the bus stops

    So close to Disney Springs shopping! We woke up daily and walked into Downtown Disney to grab a coffee and get a quick jog in. We will stay here again!

    Saratoga Springs is nice, but for the price, I expect more. It is very convenient to stay here and go to the parks. There are buses every 20 mins. The service at the resort, however, is lacking.

    Even though it is close to Downtown Disney it is very peaceful and quiet. Great place to relax after a busy day at the parks!

    This is a good resort, the rooms are nice and the store has everything you need.. The main pool is a tad small for how big the resort is but it's still nice and the senses spa is really convenient.

    The south end is across the water from Disney Springs. It's an easy walk to shops and restaurants, and can get loud in the evenings. The rooms are big and the main pool has a lot going on!

    If you want to be close to Disney Springs, ask for a room in Congress Park. If you're lake front you get beautiful sunset views.

    Golf course and spa make this a great resort for adults. Definitely less children here too. Only issue: it's very sprawled out, so get ready to walk. Easy walking access to Downtown Disney.

    Hotel is centrally located. I found the rooms to be nice but smaller than some of the other resorts. Harder to fit larger groups.

    If your staying at a building far from the Carriage House stock up your snacks so you don't have to make multiple trips. The store and restaurant are together at the Artist's Palette

    I'm reading the comment from 2010/2011 and it seems not much has changed. The buses are horrible and take forever to show up no matter where you are going. Other than that no complaints.

    Beautiful villas, but the pools are freezing and the mugs are now a ripoff. There's a chip in them that limits your ability to get drinks as you please, and you pay by the day as well as for the cup.

    If you stay three nights, try to stretch out your in room coffee use. Costs an extra $3 for another packet to brew in the room. Guess the thousands we invested into DVC don't cover that.

    If using Disney Transportation, plan on 90 minutes to from any destination, 45-60 minutes for the direct buses to the parks. We'll always rent a car on future trips b/c we wasted time on the buses.
