Florida Vacation Rental Villa Near Disney World, Windsor Palms Resort

Windsor Palms Resort


Commom questions and answers for clients staying at Windsor Palms 3 miles from Disney world.

Why should I choose a Windsor Palms home and not Orlando discount hotels?

Where do we start? The location is incredible, just 2.5miles from Disney, 5minutes from I4, and 35mins from Orlando International Airport. The 24hr security gated resort itself is mesmerising, with more than 3 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and an abundance of 1st class amenities. Orlando hotels in the Disney area can be very expensive; in fact you will probably pay the same price for one person as you would for the entire home up to 10 people! In addition you are not just in one room, you have individual lounge, dining area, kitchen, bedrooms. The less expensive discount hotels or motels can be very basic tp say the least! If you wish to meet with other guests you've also got all the resort amenities to share. A perfect solution to all your holiday needs.
