Champions Gate is slowly becoming an area that many more people are visiting. It’s location is superb being seconds away from Junction 58 on the I-4. As you come off the I-4 you drive through the ornate high gates and you are in Champions Gate.
Apart from the usual parade of shops, which include Publix – now with extended hours until 2200 due to the public demand – Walgreens for all your medical needs, there are several little eateries including a Chinese Restaurant eat in or take out, a fantastic French Creperie which has recently changed hands but the crepes are still delicious and the Sunday Brunch well worth a visit, a family run Italian Restaurant/also provides take outs, pizzas really good value, McDonalds, well one has to have one of those I suppose to keep the kids happy, and a brand new Chillis which I have not yet visited. Rumour has it that TGI’s is next on the list which will all add to the atmosphere at Champions Gate.
If you need the pampering, there is a walk in Hair Salon and a walk in Nail Salon. No need for an appointment in either establishment.
For everyone’s convenience there is also a UPS Store where you can buy stamps, use the internet facilities, send parcels, faxes and shipping.
It is also interesting that the one and only Gas Station does not overcharge it’s customers and is very competitive with the lower priced Gas Stations. It is also useful if you are arriving very late at night as the shop has all the essentials you may need until the following day when a visit to Publix is a must. Some of my guests say it is a grocery ‘theme park’ – oh well, whatever turns them on!!
Just a few short yards away from the shops is the recently built 5* Omni Resort. The resort boasts all sorts of amenities including 3 restaurants. A visit to The Zen is a must and you have to sample the Zen Experience!! I am not going to tell you any more about it, just see for yourself – fabulous Asian Cuisine.
There are also 2 Championship Golf Courses at the Omni and should you wish to be treated like a celebrity, their Beauty Salon is the place to be. You can for a small fee spend the day at the Omni Resort and use all their facilities including their 2 magnificent pools with water slides and waterfalls.
All in all, Champions Gate is a great place to be and getting even better!
