So your looking for vacation rentals near Disney World with shuttle? Look no further! The above photo is what will welcome you as your shuttle to the magic! Our home is located in the only vacation home community in Orlando with both a 3 acre water park and a theme park shuttle bus, which will take you to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and Sea World. As an added bonus, you can also arrange to be shuttled to local shopping areas such as the Premium Outlet Mall and the Mall at Millenia. There is also a smaller shuttle bus which will take you around the Encore Club Resort at Reunion as well as shuttle you to and from the pools and restaurants located within Reunion Resort proper. This is great if you want to check out the Seven Eagles infinity pool, the 4 restaurants at the Reunion Grand or find one of the secluded Reunion pools and hot tubs which are often empty (our secret pool is the Gathering Drive Pool in the Homestead neighborhood - please don't tell anybody!!😉)
While we know that one of the best features of renting a Disney World vacation home is having a fridge full of health snacks, when you are on vacation and watching the big game at your hotel room, one of the true luxuries is the ability to order room service. Well now you can have your cake and eat it too (literally!) thanks to the Encore Resort at Reunion Home Delivery service. If you have a hankering for chicken wings or pizza during half time, just call "room" service and you can have delivered to your home the same food you would enjoy at the Encore clubhouse restaurant or poolside at the water park - and the best part is that the prices are very fair. Check out the menu and let your dialing finger do the cooking tonight!
We recently spent some time around the Encore Club at Reunion Resort Water Park and thought you might enjoy this POV (Point of View) video of what it is like to play on The Surfin' Safari Aqua Park play structure. I'm not sure what I enjoyed more - the 2 water slides, the tipping water bucket or just the ongoing spray of watery fun? One thing is for sure, if you are staying at a vacation home community near Disney World and they don't have these kinds of amenities, you better click here and book your next vacation at our Kissimmee vacation home!!

The bulk of vacation homes near Disney World are located in Kissimmee, Florida either off of Old Lake Wilson Road or US Highway 198 - a fact that is not lost on the world's largest retailer. Walmart has started construction in Kissimmee Florida on a new superstore just outside the gates of Walt Disney World on Old Lake Wilson Road near US Highway 198 (Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway). This will not only be the closest Walmart to Disney World, but likely also the closest grocery store to Disney World. This is welcome news to the many Orlando area vacation home visitors who understand the savings and convenience of staying in a luxury vacation home community near Walt Disney World. While you are staying at our Kissimmee vacation home located within Encore Resort at Reunion, you will be less than 3 miles from Walmart. Pick up your groceries, swimsuits, adult beverages and forgotten items in one convenient location. You will actually pass this Walmart on your way to Walt Disney World - so stop into the store for your sunscreen and then off to Magic Kingdom!! This will be an amazing compliment to our vacation villa neighborhood. We can't wait!
There are a lot of good blogs out there by moms who provide advice to other mom's about how to plan a Disney World vacation. But what about poor old dad? Check out this blog. Dad is more than a Sherpa who carries all the bags and water around in his backpack. Remember - dads are just silly kids dressed up in adult costumes. When you are planning your trip to our vacation home at Encore Resort at Reunion in Orlando near Walt Disney World, let dad get involved in the planning. You may be surprised what great suggestions he has. Dads also remember the importance of spending at least one day of the vacation relaxing. That's where our Kissimmee vacation home with pool takes over. After the kids have their quick morning swim while the adults enjoy coffee under the lanai, get ready for the short walk over to the Encore Club water park. There you can enjoy food and beverage service by the pool while the kids (and mom and dad) partake in the vacation home community water slides, tube ride and aqua park. Unlike the water park at Reunion Resort rentals, all our guests can use the water park every day and it is included in your resort fees!
