Starting next week, Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will see some updates to its internal bus system while losing motor carriage service to Disney Springs.
A report on website WDWMagic.com indicates that effective August 29, 2016, Saratoga Springs will have an updated internal bus system with a dedicated vehicle making the rounds to all seven resort stops approximately every 20 minutes.
The seven bus stops mentioned would seem to include the two stops near the Treehouse Villas, meaning the full internal loop is comprised of the following:
- The Grandstand
- The Carousel
- The Paddock
- Congress Park
- The Springs
- Treehouse Villas North
- Treehouse Villas South
The report also mentions a separate bus route which will travel from the Congress Park bus stop over to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park.
Additionally, dedicated bus service between Saratoga Springs and the Disney Springs shopping district is being eliminated. Guests can reach Disney Springs via the walking path near Congress Park or via the Sassagoula River Cruise water launch service, which departs behind the Carriage House. Guests staying in more distant corners of the resort can use the new internal bus to reach Congress Park or The Springs near the boat dock.
Thanks to Michael for the tip!

But if headed to Town Center, West Side or anything else on that half of DS, it's going to be a longer walk than if bus dropped you right at the new stop.
Should reduce SSR transportation costs by some modest amount.
