Central Florida - Close to Disney - Four Corners Area of Florida

Everyone's heard of Disney - millions travel to the central Florida area every year to enjoy the various theme parks created by the Disney empire.

The best area to stay in is south of the Disney complex along the six-lane highway called the 192. As with other areas in the US, the actual place name is Kissimmee but the downtown area of the city is many miles to the east. There is a huge choice of places to stay ranging from top quality hotels to cheap motels. But by far the best option is to rent a villa. This gives you a huge amount of space, your own private pool & costs no more than a reasonable hotel. In fact, for large families it's the best option.

There's something for everyone in the Disney area. There are four main parks - Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, EPCOT & MGM Studios. There are also water parks & themed resorts. At various times of the year there are special events which certainly attract the crowds. For example, Halloween, Easter & Christmas - There's always a "Mickey's something or other" to enjoy (although at an additional cost). It's a good idea to book early (by which I mean months early!) to ensure a ticket.

Eating out - certainly an experience in the 'States. The tastes of every nation are catered for & you can easily eat your way around the world. The portions are huge & normally there are free refills for most drinks (non-alcoholic). Choose carefully though - there are good & bad. Most are part of a large chain & are normally consistent quality but check out the cars outside before you go in. Lots of shiny hire cars means popular with tourists, a few scruffy cars usually means avoid it like the plague! Certain places are best avoided - Cracker Barrel is supposedly genuine local cuisine but generally its grits & something stodgy - very bland. Also, be careful with their "wait for a table" idea - you wait in their dedicated shop whilst the restaurant is half-empty!

If you're staying in a villa the best supermarket is the huge Wal-Mart on the 27, just a couple of miles west from the Four Corners area. Everything is available although imported goods are very dear. A point to bear in mind is if you take something home to the UK & want a refund if the item breaks, take it to ASDA.

Overall, a fantastic place to spend a holiday but you'll need at least two weeks & deep pockets when you're in the theme parks. Save up your pennies & have a great holiday!

A perfect villa in a relaxing resort

5 of 5
We had a fabulous fortnight in Graham and Sue's villa. It was exactly as pictured and described. The villa was super clean and very spacious for our family of five. There were plenty of towels including beach towels and excellent washing/drying facilities. A special mention to the enormous master bed which was super comfy and the wonderful air conditioning which enabled a peaceful nights sleep. The kids loved the pool and couldn't wait to get in it after a day at the parks. The resort was very well maintained and quiet with 2 excellent pools and lovely grounds. It is very close to all the Disney Parks and a wide range of restaurants and supermarkets. It may have been the time of year but we didn't experience any traffic delays getting to Disney from the villa and it is a very straightforward route in. Communication throughout with Graham and Sue was excellent and all questions/queries were answered quickly. Thank you very much Graham and Sue, we hope that we can come back soon.

Lovely townhouse at an excellent location

5 of 5
We have just returned to the UK from a 21 day stay at this lovely townhouse. The property has everything you need, plenty of clean bedding, towels and pool towels, it was spotlessly clean upon our arrival and is in an excellent location for the theme parks, Boggy creek, Cristal river, beaches and the Space Centre. We have done so much whilst we were there, the highlight being a manatee swim in the wild at Cristal River. My husband and my daughters boyfriend went fishing most afternoons at the lake just behind the house, catching bass on a daily basis, something that was $200 per person to do as an excursion. My daughter and I stayed and sunbathed dipping in and out of the pool to ready ourselves for a return to the parks in the evening. Its close to plenty of excellent restaurants (brisket tacos at Applebees were the best) and supermarkets. The property was as described and I found Ian, the owner, incredibly helpful with any queries I had, replying to me very quickly. A very comfortable place to stay, I would not hesitate to recommend to friends or stay there again if we return to Florida in the future. One word of advice for future travellers, don't book things through the concierge at the reception, we found her incredibly pushy, almost to the point of rudeness, because we wouldn't book there and then for the Blue Man Group (well worth a visit). She was pushing us to have $125 seats that we booked ourselves at Universal just 2 rows back from for $95, its a really small theatre so view was good from everywhere, no need to pay the higher price, she actually said in front of us to the person at Blue man booking office that she couldn't believe how stupid we were not to take her offer, implying the shows are better on the higher priced Friday night, not true, they are all the same! Also a manatee swim through them was $150 for a trip with 20 or 30 other people, we made our own enquiries and booked with a company called Double J adventures, for $50 per person we got a 3 hour tour on our own during which time we were lucky enough to encounter 3 manatees which chose to stay and swim around us for 45 minutes, it was amazing! A fantastic holiday, we will be back!
