Spacious Town Homes with Shuttle Access to Walt Disney World
Orlando is the undisputed theme-park capital of the world—home to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and a slew of smaller family-friendly attractions. While vacationing in this sun-drenched playground, you don't have to miss the comforts of home with a stay at one of Florida Deluxe Villas' townhouses, all located within 4- or 5-star facilities. Tropically decorated three-bedroom units are outfitted with eat-in kitchens, Internet access, washers and dryers, and cozy living rooms. Clubhouses situated nearby feature fitness centers, jacuzzis, pools, and saunas.
Florida Deluxe Villas also serves as an entertainment curator, with a concierge-manned welcome center open 24 hours a day. As a Disney-authorized independent retailer, the concierge can sell tickets to the theme parks as well as discounted admission to other area attractions and dinner shows. A shuttle service ($15–$50 for five people, depending on destination) ferries groups to their desired location, with possible stops including Disney World's four theme parks and two water parks.
Kissimmee, Florida: Easy Access to Walt Disney World and Major Orlando Attractions
The town homes are scattered throughout Kissimmee, the city directly adjacent to Walt Disney World. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, visitors experience moviemaking magic on The Great Movie Ride and during shows such as Muppet Vision 3-D. On the Studio Backlot Tour, passengers embark on a 35-minute guided tour through a prop warehouse and experience a simulated disaster in Catastrophe Canyon. Nearby, Disney's Blizzard Beach water park resembles a frosty ski resort, with chair lifts that whisk you to the top of a freefalling water slide known as Summit Plummet. Kids slide down faux ice luges at Tike's Peak or race competitive snowmen with a face-first ride down the Toboggan Racers slide.
Outside of Disney World, the greater Orlando area is stuffed with other theme parks, including Universal Studios Florida, Universal's Islands of Adventure, and SeaWorld. For a break from the crowds, take a drive up to the town of Winter Park for its Saturday farmers' market, designer boutiques, and scenic boat tours along Lake Osceola.
