Check out our family portrait! Disney Parks has a fun little site that I thought you might enjoy. You can design and Build Your Own Disney Family and, best of all, it's free. It is much like the stickers you see on the back of cars, except this one comes with a solid background. The free stickers are only available to US residents, so if you are travelling to our Encore Club Resort at Reunion vacation home from within the United States, I sure hope you are sporting one of these stickers on your car. If you are from outside the United States, don't worry. You can still download the image to your computer and print it out on sticker paper or a magnet. We recommend the magnet so you put it onto your rental car and let everybody in the best gated Orlando vacation home community near Disney World know that you are a true Disney fan. Or better yet, put the sticker on the side of the free hotel shuttle to Disney World. Maybe we can start a trend!
The end of a day at Walt Disney World for 14 years has ended with the fireworks finale known at "Wishes Nighttime Spectacular". Arguably one of the best fireworks displays in the world, this iconic show has played every night at Magic Kingdom since October 9, 2003 and has amazed both kids and parents alike with it's bright display over Cinderella's Castle. And who isn't smiling when Tinker Bell makes her iconic flight from the top of the castle over the crowd as she heads toward Tomorrowland? Well, for fans of this great show, I am sorry to tell you that it is coming to an end on May 11, 2017. But don't worry - Disney wouldn't let you leave Magic Kingdom without an awesome fireworks display. Starting May 12, 2017, a new show entitled "Happily Ever After" will premier. I'm sure it will be just as amazing a Wishes - maybe even more so. In the interim, if you are a fan of Wishes or just a sucker for nostalgia, why don't you book a vacation to say goodbye to Wishes. Our Encore Club Resort at Reunion vacation home is currently available for May 11, 2017. But don't just come for to say goodbye to Wishes. Spend a day riding the water slides at the Encore Club Resort Water Park. Spend a relaxing day at our home with your family swimming. We have an Orlando vacation home with a pool at your service. How about an evening at home with the family in our Kissimmee vacation home movie theatre? Tour Reunion Resort and enjoy lunch at the clubhouse. You can even watch the fireworks from our front yard, the clubhouse terrace or from the 11th floor terrace at the Reunion Grand Hotel. If you are visiting Disney World to say goodbye to Wishes but you are on a bit of a tight budget, take advantage of our vacation home's free hotel shuttle to Walt Disney World. It really is all here and available for you. Vacation differently!
Everybody is getting excited about the construction progress of the Star Wars Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios. With new movies in the Star Wars franchise coming out in 2017 and 2018, the excitement will only build. This video suggests a 2019 open for the new theme park attraction. While that seems a long time away, it will be here sooner than you think. We are already getting requests for rentals of our Encore Resort at Reunion vacation home for March 2018. When are we going to see the first 2019 bookings in anticipation of the opening of the new Star Wars Land? As one of only a few vacation home rental communities with free shuttles to Disney World and Universal Orlando, I expect to see more kids wearing Star Wars themed pool gear at the free resort water park and attacking the resort water slides like Jedi younglings.

If you find yourself agreeing with the man in this light hearted college humor video, you are on the right website! There are two types of people - people who completely get the whole Disney World experience and those who just miss the point completely (no bias shown there). If you are a fan of Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando and regularly vacation in the Orlando, you are most likely a "Disney on a budget" sort of person. If that is the case, I suggest pooling your money with another like minded family and rent our Encore Club Resort at Reunion vacation home rental. You get hotel amenities like free shuttle to Disney and Universal, but best of all, you get the best community water park in all of Florida! For more information, send us an email or, better yet, book today!
If you are wondering what a day trip to Magic Kingdom in 2017 is like from our Kissimmee vacation home, look no further. Enjoy this video which gives you a front seat view (literally) of a trip to and around Magic Kingdom starting from the drive through Walt Disney World's front gate. Magic Kingdom is the park furthest away from Disney's front door. If you were travelling to Hollywood Studios or Epcot, you turn almost immediately after you enter Disney property. The travel time from our Encore Club Resort at Reunion vacation home rental to Walt Disney World's front gate is around 8 minutes. Less than 5 miles to the fun! If you don't want to drive, take the free hotel shuttle to Walt Disney World that is offered at our resort. It will save you $20.00 in parking!
