Located only 3 miles from Disney’s main gate it is the perfect place for your dream vacation, with it’s large selection of accommodation from 3 bedroom townhomes through to 6 bedroom Windsor Hills vacation rentals.
Below is information about the resort and community facilities but I wanted to start by giving you an overview of the area and why Windsor Hills is such a good place to book a vacation rental home.
Windsor Hills vacation rentals are some of the most sort after homes in the Orlando area and alway book up quickly mainly because they are newly built. They also have a good bedroom to bathroom ratio offering a 4 bedroom 4 bath and 5 bedroom 5 bath layout which is ideal for families that don’t want to share!
Every vacation rental on Windsor Hills has it’s own private heated pool and spa which is a great place to relax after a long day at the Orlando theme parks. All the Windsor Hills pool areas also have a covered patio area known as a lanai which is great in the summer when you want a bit of shade away from the strong Florida sun. The covered lanai area is also a great place for kids to play without the fear of getting sun burnt, it’s also ideal for alfresco dining anytime of the day.

Celebration in Orlando Florida is kicking off the holiday season with there nightly snow fall from Saturday 26th November. On opening night Santa Claus will be there so you still have time to sit on his knee and ask for a present. There will also be strolling carollers, christmas tree lighting at 5.55pm, festive treats and all the local restaurants are open as normal so why not take the kids to enjoy the snow and grab some dinner afterward.
Highly recommended, is the clam chowder at the Boston Market restaurant, but make sure you get extra crackers (mine always get stolen by Claire!).
The Celebration Snow Fall runs daily from the 26th November to 31st December at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
Below is a video from last year to give you an idea of what it’s like, sorry about the music but this was the best video I could find on youtube. If you have your own video that is better please let me know and I will add it.
Fantasy Surf in Kissimmee, Florida is an adrenaline filled water ride and what a change from the theme parks? This week I went over to Fantasy Surf in Kissimmee for some aquatic adventure fun and I really enjoyed it! Fantasy Surf hosts a great indoor water sport activity termed flowriding – fun for all ages you can slide, ride and surf the ultimate waves – and its a safe and controlled environment so good for those new to surfing and want to try it out – but also great for practising tricks if you’re an accomplished surfer.
The impressive indoor FlowRider surf system is a real experience – like surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding rolled into one – set up on an artificial beach setting, the machine size is 32 ft wide and 49 ft in length and can allows 25-30 riders each hour. There are cushioned surfaces all around for safety and for those in your group opting out it’s still a lot of fun watching others develop their new or expert surfing skills!
Whilst you’re there you can visit ‘The Lull’ cafe for casual dining and shop for surf-style retail at the ‘Offshore’ store.
Fantasy Surf offers 30 minute sessions on the FlowRider waves for adults and children – minimum height requirements are 42″ – for bodyboard, 52″ for Flowboard. Its $25 for one adult session and $20 for one child session – but there are multiple session savings so check out Fantasy Surf – Ticket Prices for more details.
