Florida Guide > Planning your Trip
Have you considered everything you should ?
It is an exciting time planning a forthcoming holiday and making the choice of where to stay. In Orlando this falls broadly into two categories, either hotel or villa accommodation. A villa has far more advantages than a cramped hotel room. Imagine being stuck in one room and one bathroom when you can enjoy a 4-bedroomed house with 3 bathrooms and your own private pool.
This article looks at villa accommodation in the Disney area and some of the considerations that are often overlooked.
Brochure and internet searches will find a selection of high quality homes from which to make your choice. You will be able to specify your own personal requirements, which from our own experience, center on the number of bedrooms, availability of a private pool, and whether it overlooks a conservation area or a golf course. More secondary requirements include games rooms and barbeques.
However, other than the proximity to the Disney theme parks, how much consideration is given to location. No one wants to think about what may go wrong on a holiday but what if you have a mini emergency that needs prompt attention? We have found that the Woodridge Plaza situated on US27 north just a mile or so from the Irlo Bronson Highway (US192) is central to a growing number of villa communities and offers a comprehensive range of personal services as well as being the home to a US Post Office and Winn Dixie supermarket.
Let’s take some examples from which we have some experience.
On a recent trip I broke a lens in my spectacles. No problem ‘Optical’ provides a one-stop service for all glasses and contact lens sales and repairs.
What about something like a cut finger, sprained ankle or other medical treatment that is not serious enough to warrant hospital attention? Well, there is an NTC Walk In Medical Center available seven days a week that administers treatments and offers advice. If you are seeking help for toddlers then a visit to the Pediatrics Clinic may provide the answer.
Back problems are catered for at Four Corners Chiropractic and any dental treatment is available at Smile Crafters.
From a non-medical point of view there is also a Hair Design and Beauty Salon, a Dry Cleaners and Curves – Fitness and Weight Loss……just in case of a spot of over indulgence.
There may well be other centers around with similar services but we feel you may be hard pressed to find anything better than what is on offer at Woodridge.
We aim to provide accurate and useful information, but if you feel anything provided here is not accurate or out of date, please email us with the address of the page concerned and any comments so we can amend as necessary.
