Will the walking trail be easily followed if we dine at AP and then walk to the Sleepy Hollow Halloween thing (which takes place in the stables)? It'll be dark.
Although it is fully paved, I'd not choose to walk the path in the dark.

We are doing a split stay this August BWI/GF. We want to go to Turf Club in Saratoga Springs. I can't find map of where Saratoga Springs is. Think it's near Disney Springs. Would it be easy to get to from BWI or GF? If we go from GF, we will have to go to MK and grab a bus. If we go from BWI, we will go to HS and grab a bus. Any suggestions for which hotel area is the best/closest to getting to Saratoga Springs?

NEVER MIND. I just see that I asked this question yesterday. A senior moment. lol

Saratoga Springs is adjacent to Disney Springs.
Opt. 1: Bus to any theme park, exit your bus, then get on the bus to Saratoga Springs.
Opt. 2: Bus to Disney Springs, walk to Saratoga Springs (via the beautiful wide new walkway bridge on the NE end of Disney Springs.)
Opt. 3: Bus to Disney Springs, take the Disney Springs to Saratoga Springs Shuttle Boat.

    Looking for where Saratoga Springs Resort is compared to the two resorts we are staying at in August BWI and GF. I am wondering which hotel is closer to Saratoga Springs. Is there a map that shows where resorts are?

    Epcot is closer to Disney Springs (and Saratoga Springs next to it) than MK, so BWI is closer to it than GF. Nothing against Mappy McMapsterson, but any maps app or website should help you get a handle where everything is at WDW. (Though the first map in Post #7 also answers that question. :))

    Is there a thread outlining the best or secret spots to watch the fireworks in magic Kingdom.

    For example I read recently that the garden area in front of Casey's Corner is good because often folk think it is reserved area. Are there others?

    I believe the garden area in front of Casey's is reserved for Dessert party guests who have "Plaza Garden View". There is only ONE dessert party, but TWO separate areas to watch from. One is from the Tomorrowland Terrace, and the other Plaza Garden.

    The first post on this thread has a list of posts for various maps. Post #2 has this map: upload_2018-8-20_2-13-44.jpeg

    Just to clarify, (looking at the map @jekjones1558 kindly copied into Post #269 above)
    the (fenced) "Plaza Garden" area side of the Hub is the only area reserved for "Plaza Garden View" party guests.

    As for the Casey's side, only a small portion of the (fenced) garden area in front of Casey's is reserved at all.
    That being for the several guests who arrange for "Concierge Viewing."
    The rest of that same Casey's garden area is open for "regular guests" to view the fireworks.
    The number of guests who decide to go into that viewing area can vary every night.

    what about handicapped viewing areas? now that so much is ON the castle as opposed to in the air, i would think they would have spots for people in wheelchairs so they don't have to look at everyone's backsides. ;)

    Hello. Thanks so much for the maps! It helps so much for planning for those of us who are first timers. However, I am still confused about where the handicapped viewing areas are. We are ok with having to claim our space even two hours ahead of fireworks, but we certainly don’t want to stake out a spot and then learn later it was supposed to be reserved for those in wheelchairs. Others have advised us to find a spot with a wall directly behind a guard rail/fence, and from the photos and maps we have seen it seems like that best spot would be by the fountain in front of Casey’s. However in some maps, that fountain area is labeled “F” with a wheelchair image. Does that mean the green space/fountain area is reserved? Would we still be ok to stand behind it? Or am I misunderstanding the maps and photos somehow?

    Thanks as always!

    The “Casey’s side” enclosed area is only partially held for VIP guests, and the wheelchair area there is only in a relatively smallish space the front of that location. The wheelchair reserved areas will be marked as early guests start arriving.
