Local Information

Local Attractions:

Woodlands Disney Villa is on the quiet woodland community of Sandy Ridge. This is off the 532, just ten minutes from Disney World. The whole community is surrounded by conservation land, making it a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the parks. Woodlands Disney Villa, unlike many Orlando vacation homes, has a very private pool and deck area, having woodland views to one side and the rear. It is on a corner plot with conservation land beyond it extending for 200yds. Across the road there is a landscaped area with a small children’s play area.

For those of you looking for a Florida golfing holiday there is a wealth of golf courses nearby, the two closest being Champions Gate – a PGA championship course designed by Greg Norman, and the prestigious community of Reunion which has several signature golf courses designed by some of the greatest names in golf—Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Within a few minutes drive at the crossing on Old Lake Wilson and the 532 you will find a Publix supermarket, a bank, CVS pharmacy, a liquor store, Mcdonalds, Subways and a number of take-aways, Pizza Hut, Papa John's Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, China Taste for those evenings when no-one wants to cook!

At Champions Gate you will find another Publix supermarket, a bank, Walgreens pharmacy, liquor store, UPS store, Mcdonalds, Subways, Chili's and more restaurants and take-aways. A short drive further will take you to Highway 192 where you will find a wealth of other restaurants and shops including a favourite of ours, The Outback (for fantastic steaks) Of course Downtown Disney, just 15 minutes drive away is well worth a visit to soak up the atmosphere and eat in the well renowned restaurants such as Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Café, House of Blues etc. Here you will also find Disney Quest, (5 floors of interactive games) a multiplex cinema and of course the fabulous Cirque du Soleil,

For most people on an Orlando vacation a visit to Walt Disney World is a must. Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Disney Hollywood Studios, along with Disney’s water parks Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are all less than 15 minutes drive from Sandy Ridge. Getting to Walt Disney World is very easy – turn left out of Sandy Ridge, and follow the 532 and then take the I4 East Bound (EB), shortly you will see the signs to Walt Disney World, and all the parks.

Universal Studios, Universal's Islands of Adventure, Universal,s City Walks, Wet and Wild, Sea World, Discovery Cove, Aquatica and the all new Legoland are all within easy reach and signposted off the I4. Other attractions nearby include Gatorland, Pirates Cove Golf Disney’s crazy golf, Winter Summerland and Fantasia Gardens.

An hours drive East will take you to the Kennedy Space Center and the Atlantic Coast with Daytona and Cocoa Beaches. Or drive West for the Gulf Coast, Tampa and Busch Gardens, .

For the shopaholics amongst you, whether you are looking for the smart shopping mall i.e. Florida Mall, Festival Bay, or Mall at Millenia, or searching for a Floridian bargain at the Premium Outlets or Pointe Orlando there is no end of choice.
