Regal Oaks is a holiday resort located in the Kissimmee Old Town Area of southwest Florida, just a short distance from the Walt Disney World Resort – often referred to by locals simply as ‘Disney’. Set in a forested conservation area, Regal Oaks is a development of brand new luxury townhouses and villas, allowing visitors to be within five minutes of Disney – about as close as you can get to the resort without staying within its boundaries.
The vast majority of visitors to Regal Oaks are staying there due to its extremely close proximity to Disney – you can walk to the 39 miles square complex within just 5-10 minutes, meaning a world of theme parks, water parks, golf courses and entertainment is literally at your doorstep. But the Regal Oaks resort has plenty to offer visitors by itself:
The resort contains a selection of outlet malls, restaurants and golf courses, and the swimming pavilion sunbathing terraces are a great place to relax after a busy day at Disney, or a heavy night out on the town - the vibrant nightlife of Kissimmee Old Town is just a short distance away.
Kissimmee is just a couple of kilometres up the road, and has a good enough selection of shopping malls, golf courses and museums to keep the whole family entertained. Another nearby option is Lake Kissimmee State Park. With 13 miles of hiking and equestrian trails it gives you a chance to experience the wildlife that lives around Florida’s third largest lake, and offers something a little different than the theme park madness of Disney.
If you fancy heading to the beach whilst on holiday at Regal Oaks, you can get there in less than an hour. Orlando (25 miles) and Tampa (69 miles) are also within driving distance if you fancy hitting a big city, getting you away from the Disney area for a day or two, but within short enough driving time to be able to return to your conveniently-located Regal Oaks accommodation in time for the next day’s activities.
The Kissimmee area experiences a tropical climate, with hot, humid summers that can hit the mid-thirties, and mild winters – with averages rarely less than 10C. The rainy season runs from June to September, but do not let this put you off a holiday rental at Regal Oaks, as thunderstorms are infrequent and short-lived.
The easiest way of reaching Regal Oaks from the UK is via a flight to Orlando, then public transport or the use of a hire car for the second leg of the journey. Kissimmee airport is nearer to your final destination, but International flights are uncommon. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are just two of the carriers which make regular flights to Orlando International Airport (MCO).
