Saratoga springs main road
Exiting the pool area brings me to one of the criticisms of this resort - the busy main road that runs right through the center of the resort.
I don't know of any other Disney resort that has a roadway going directly through the center of it.

beautiful pathways
Once across the road, however, you'll be back on beautiful pathways once again.

The Springs area of the resort is connected to The Paddock area by this long bridge.
