Disney Springs Update February 2016

We took a stroll round Disney Springs for lunch today, it’s really taking shape and exciting to see how it’s morphing from what was Downtown Disney to Disney Springs. We took a sneaky peak behind the miles of billboards whilst the construction changes are being made.

Encore Club at Reunion Vacation Rentals / Clubhouse Update

We recently visited the brand new Encore Club at Reunion clubhouse to see how things are coming along. As you can see from the photos they are progressing well and expect to be on target for the March 1st 2016 opening date.You can see the water slides are in place and look great, I was actually surprised how big they are, they are similar to something you would find at Wet n Wild. The kids splash zone also is much bigger that I expected so I am sure guests are going to love this. The pool at the back looks a long way from being finished but these guys work fast so it won’t take long before it’s complete.

Orlando Travel Tips – What to Pack and what to Leave Behind

Orlando Vacation Travel Tips

So, you’ve booked your flights, car hire and Orlando villa, your next dilemma is what to pack!

My biggest tip for packing is to take the largest bag you have and leave plenty of SPACE! After all I’m sure you will be hitting the shops at some point during your stay in Orlando.

The most often asked question is “do we need to pack towels”, the answer is NO! The villa will be stocked with all the towels / linens needed for your stay. Plus they also have washers and dryers for you to use, I’m sure that doing your laundry on your holiday wasn’t top of your list of things to do in Orlando, but it will save you loads of space when packing.

Next on the list of questions is “do we need to pack a hairdryer”, again the answer is NO! Your villa will have one, some even have one in each bathroom, but this is a luxury. Again a great space saver, but on another note, if you have ever plugged a UK hairdryer into a US 110 volt plug, you’d wished you hadn’t bothered! You will have more success drying your hair, running around outside!

Driving Direction from Orlando Airport (MCO) to the Windsor Hills Resort

Orlando International Airport Road Signs

How to get from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to the Windsor Hills Resort as quick as possible so you can start enjoying your holiday. The Orlando airport has a oneway system so once you have picked up your rental car and left the multi-storey car park you will join this oneway system.

When leaving the Orlando airport take your time and make sure you get the right exit don’t be rushed by other guests leaving as once you on wrong highway it will be difficult to turn round.

Just follow the signs and take your time, a good tip is to stay in the middle lanes if you are not sure and then you can easily go left or right if needed.
