Best location with small kids at Saratoga Springs?

Our kids are ages 10 and 9, and we would love to be able to see Downtown Disney from our room.

However, the Congress Park pool isn't themed. The Paddock pool is newly themed with a small play ground and would be lots of fun for kids. Same with the Springs pool and the Grandstand pool.

The Paddock isn't too far from DTD and the boat to DTD is closer to the Grandstand area.

SSR is such a great resort. I have stayed there 2x.

For room location I would suggest the Springs or Paddock. They are both near a great pool with slide. Paddock has a great pool area for kids!

Springs has a busstop right near it and it is also near the main area.

Paddock might have a bus stop near it also. They have a breakfast/lunch place right next to the pool. Its very handy!

Why we like Grandstand

1. First on bus, first off bus
2. Close to Pro shop
3. Close to store
4. Close to main pool
5. Great grandstand pool.
6. Closet to DTD boat.

If you want DTD view, then Congress park best bet, little bit longer walk to main pool
and 4th bus stop, if that is important to you.
