Disney Area Resorts
In a class by themselves, this section
will focus on the Area Resorts and some of the 'World Class'
facilities that are associated with these properties.
Let us start first with the West US192 area, where many of the newer
and larger Resorts can be found.
In this area alone we are aware of as many as 10 of this type.
Though many of these have been built as 'Vacation Ownership' Resorts
(formerly referred to as a Timeshare), like many an accommodation
type, there are still nightly rentals available and usually at
surprisingly low rates.
These offers generally do not impose any conditions other than
paying a nightly rate. In addition to this, there is another program
that has been implemented by these Resorts over the years called
'Mini-Vacations'. These are primarily sales tools for ownership
Even though there are usually no conditions applied to renting a
villa from these Resorts, it still remains a marketing opportunity.
Don't be surprised if you're asked to attend a presentation. It may
be in the form of a written invitation in your villa or a phone call
from the concierge just to make sure your room is impeccable. Check
that you are aware of all the stipulations that might apply to you
getting such a good price.
The facilities of these Resorts are usually 'World Class' in nature.
In fact, we know of several that either have outstanding Tennis
Facilities, Health Spa, and/or a Golf Course. One even has its own
Water Park as part of their amenity package.
There are other Resorts in different sections of US 192, we should
mention that there are several just east of I-4 including:
Barefootn' In The Keys and Star Island Resort, so named because of
the number of celebrity owners. A little further down, and somewhat
hidden, is the Resort of Oak Plantation, which can be found near the
area where West Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy becomes West Vine Street.
