Driving distances are taken from Google Maps and reference a central starting point in the community. When quoting distances to Walt Disney World Resort, these are not taken to the 'gates', but are representative of the actual distance to the specific attraction. Driving distances are not biased to any villa community.
This is the mid-section of highway US27 and encompasses a number of rental communities from the intersection with highway US192 then south towards Interstate 4. With this area fast becoming where the majority of visitors to the Orlando area will stay, improvements to the roads have made them wider to cater for the additional traffic. Access to the attractions, shops and restaurants is via Interstate 4 or US192. Likewise, a visit to Tampa or the Gulf coast beaches is equally as straightforward via Interstate 4.
Staying in this area means a car is essential when visiting the theme parks, area attractions and the local shops.
