    The gym was most definitely closed while we were there. They did shove a few treadmills and a couple free weights ( up to 15 pounds I think) into a tiny windowless room but that's not really a gym...Not sure if it has reopened, that was in June

    Ok looked on google maps and there are a few more options

    Option 1 walk to side car entry gate, either walk along side road or cross road, walk along and enter walkway at the end of downtown disney, I guess they are only closing the walk way at Saratoga springs and not the walk entrance to downtown disney?

    Option 2 walk to other side of Saratoga springs and cross into the west side of downtown disney by house of blues.

    Option 3 drive and park in car park, only issue no drink.

    Option 4 drive and park near walkway to west side of downtown disney, walk into downtown disney and back to car and drive back to congress park.

    Looked at moving to grandstand area of Saratoga springs but we have asked for view of downtown disney as family who are coming have not had this view before, the grandstand area really does not have this view.

    We popped into Saratoga last year to check it out and one of the reasons we chose to book for this year was because they had a great gym (an enormous room in the spa building with just about every piece of kit you could imagine plus free weights) so looks like its not open. :(

    It is annoying when something changes and the reason you booked the hotel has either been removed or closed, shame disney can not give a bit more notice on these things.

    They gave no notice apart from a few days that's the walkway was closing.
