With Saratoga Springs, can you get free transport to all included on the disney ticket (even water parks?).

Also if we did not want to hire a car but want to go to sea world, busch gardens etc, is there any way we can get there on transfer buses or would we need to hire a car?

Buses run to all WDW parks and Downtown Disney from SSR. There is also a boat to Downtown Disney from the resort. :goodvibes

We never hire a car when we visit Florida, and find it easy to get around. We often use taxis to get to Sea World and Universal Studios - for us, it still works out cheaper than hiring a car. For Busch Gardens, take a taxi to Sea World (approx. $20) then catch the special bus from there. :hippie:

However, we have used the Lynx bus from WDW to International Drive. This is very cheap and we have found it reliable, but it can add a fair bit of time to get from A to B. ;)

We have stayed at Disney hotels with and without hiring a car. We never used the car to visit any of the Disney parks, but we did use it to visit the non-Disney parks and also to do shopping. The nearest Walmart is only about 5 minutes away from SSR and having a car enables you to stock up on all the holiday essentials such as beer and telephone cards, etc. Driving in Florida is so easy. I would definitely think about hiring a car if I was you.
