Located in Lake Buena Vista district along with the majority of Orlando’s world-famous theme parks including Walt Disney World, the Westgate Blue Tree resort is the perfect place for a family sunshine holiday. Offering attractive one- and two-bedroom villas, the resort has four outdoor pools, a kids’ pool, two outdoor hot tubs, a fitness room and free transportation to the most popular theme parks.
Sports and BBQ facilities, a miniature golf course and activity schedules for adults and children are on offer, and the pretty villas are all low-rise and set around the pools in lush gardens. There’s a mini-market, and shops and restaurants are nearby. Florida is perfect for a holiday at any time of the year, and is one of the world’s most popular destinations for its endless list of things to do and see.
The timeshare units at the Blue Tree resort are award winning for the five-star service as well as for comfort, amenities, location and value for money. A bonus for shopaholics seeking fashion bargains is the neighbouring Premium Outlet Mall, one of the state’s largest discount shopping complexes, offering famous name designer gear at amazing prices as well as spectacular annual sales.
A rarely-visited part of the Disney empire nestling within Orlando’s urban sprawl is the 12,000 acre Disney Wilderness Preserve, created as compensation for the company’s negative impact on the local environment. Walking trails through woodlands, scrublands and natural habitats reveal hundreds of wildlife species including bald eagles and the as yet unspoiled Lake Russell.
Wekiwa Springs State Park lies just outside the Orlando metropolitan area, and its wild, scenic Wekiwa River is great for canoeing and kayaking as well as for wildlife watching. Lake Eola is the perfect place to shelter from the heat of the Florida summer, with its paved sidewalk running around its shores and shady, green canopies provided by giant Spanish oaks. Orlando may be the world’s theme park central, but there’s lots to see and do outside the city, with car rental the best way to go. Daytona Beach is hallowed ground for motor racing enthusiasts and is less than four hours’ drive away, and Cape Canaveral with its amazing Kennedy Space Center is around the same distance from the resort.
Orlando International Airport is the city’s main arrivals hub, offering routes from London Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham as well as scores of domestic flights across the USA. It’s a major ground transportation hub for the region, offering shuttles, Lynx buses, Greyhound lines, taxis and car hire.
