The villa is located only twenty five minutes from Orlando International airport, fifteen minutes from the gates of Disney World and less than five minutes away from local shopping areas, including a 24hr supermarkets, and amenities. The villa is positioned to give the benefit of peace, quiet and tranquility, yet everything you require is within easy reach.
The fantastic location allows you to easily return home for a relaxing swim mid-way through a visit to Disney. Also, the villa is very easy to find from the airport, being located just off route 192, the main East/West route through Kissimmee and Orlando.

Wet n' Wild Water Park is fantastic value for money and has something to satisfy visitors of any age. They have a dedicated childrens' water park area, which is fabulous fun, and a multitude of water rides, ranging from slightly more adventurous to absolutely crazy! They offer tickets from approx. $40 per adult, which entitle you to visit as many times as you like for your stay - sometimes even for the whole year! We love this park and visit many times throughout our stay - it's far better than any of the other water parks and we thoroughly recommend it to all guests.
Having tried many of the evening attractions available in the Orlando/Kissimmee area, we certainly recommend Arabian Nights. The show is fabulous, the food is good, the beer and wine is unlimited, and it's great value for money. We upgraded to VIP tickets and it was certainly worth every cent. A word of warning though....the show is extremely popular, so early booking is recommended
Discovery Cove is simply wonderful. The opportunity to swim with dolphins, and see the other sea life up close is just amazing. If that wasn't enough, buying a ticket also gets you a free seven day entrance ticket to either Sea World, or Busch Gardens, Tampa. Entrance numbers are limited, and advance booking is essential. It's reasonably expensive, but worth every penny. A tip: Buy a cheap underwater camera before going, as they are quite expensive on-site. Everything else you will need is provided, including wet suits, snorkels and masks and lunch. The youngest child age for the dolphin swim programme is 6.
Aquatica is the new water park for Sea World. The water slides even go into the dolphin pools! You are able to buy combination tickets for SeaWorld and Aquatica. Click on the logo to visit the official website for the most up to date offers.
If you are going to visit Clearwater, on the Gulf Coast, we certainly recommend Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise. It's fun for children and adults alike, and you may even be lucky enough to spot some dolphins during your voyage.
