Nestled just one mile from Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Westgate Villas Orlando offers all the basic accommodations of home, with dozens of extra added luxuries.
Safe and slightly secluded, you’ll drive through rows of palm trees and security gates to reach your welcoming destination. Full-service washers and dryers along with kitchens offer convenience and comfort for families and all travelers, alike, along with beautifully remodeled sparkling amenities and light interiors in one-and-two bedroom options, including some villas with in-room jacuzzi hot tubs.
After a comfortable night of rest in affordable spaces designed to fit the entire family, enjoy an onsite breakfast within easy walking distance at Draft’s Sports Bar & Grill. Seasonal omelets, signature ‘Bases Loaded Breakfast Tatchos’, an array of flavored pancakes and more will satisfy a diverse array of palettes.
For a more comfortable start to a relaxing vacation day, consider lounging by the Westgate Villas Orlando’s onsite two-story Shipwreck Island waterpark. Perfect for all family members, adults can lounge through a lazy river, while kids play on waterpark playground equipment, splash pads, and multiple waterslides. Pina Coladas, frozen margaritas, and more are readily available at three poolside bars.
Views of the Westgate lakes center the entire property. The perfect place for a stroll, you’ll likely notice unique and original features, including hundreds of locks left by past guests on a pedestrian bridge that connects each side of the property. Children can also stop to pose for photos with dinosaur statues. For a fun activity on the lake, Westgate Vacation Villas Resort offers a swan boat rental to paddle your way through the water.
Additional swimming pools, mini golf, tennis courts, a game room, movie theater, and fitness center are also available for your days of leisure. Not to mention spacious balconies in villas – complete with clear netting to keep insects off your vacation porch.
Serenity Spa is an excellent choice for some additional rest and relaxation. Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit with a 50-minute HydraFacial treatment or take advantage of several special packages, including a 6-hour stress free ‘vacation’ with a Serenity Signature Massage, Serenity Signature Facial, Healing Mud Body Cocoon, Spa Manicure and Pedicure, and a deep conditioning treatment.
Fall is an especially wonderful time to visit either property due to the prominence of brightly colored leaf decorations and pumpkins galore. Another unique attraction, off property, during the fall is SeaWorld’s Howl-O-Scream event. Not your traditional SeaWorld, the park turns into a series of haunted houses and spooky attractions for 22 nights in October from 7-10 p.m. If scares aren’t your thing – you can also catch a Holiday evening celebration of lights during select evenings in November and December.
Then, after your excursions, you’ll arrive safely back to your comfortable and spacious vacation home, ready to rest and take on another day of making fun memories.
Additional onsite places to eat are Villa Italiano Chophouse and Los Amigos Mexican Grill & Tequila Bar. For added convenience and to take advantage of full kitchen amenities, Westgate Vacation Villas Resort is also just minutes away from grocery stores.
