After the success of Disneyland in California, Walt Disney turned his sights on central Florida for his next amusement-park venture—Walt Disney World® Theme Parks. This time, the company made sure to put the park in an area that was large and secluded so that it had plenty of room to grow. In the years since, the Orlando area has proven itself capable of supporting a bumper crop of family-friendly offerings. They include Wild Florida wildlife park, where guests can feed native animals and listen to the calls of tropical birds (your stay includes passes). Grande Villas Resort is within easy driving distance of all these attractions and fits right in with its pink, blue, and yellow façade and playground.
Like a luxurious home away from home, each villa at the resort comes with a fully stocked kitchen and master bedroom. Guests can use the foldout sleeper sofas to accommodate additional family members or members of the Swedish national cricket team. Two-bedroom units measure more than 1,300 square feet and boast a set of twin beds, an additional bathroom, and a whirlpool jet tub. A private, screened patio or balcony extends from each villa, offering views of the resort's two outdoor pools or palm-studded gardens.
