The villas are located in the prestigious Emerald Island Resort, just 2 miles from Walt Disney World. Universal Studios and Sea World are just a 15 minute drive away via I-4. Our location means that you can get to the theme parks quickly and easily. During peak vacation periods this can save you a tremendous amount of time and frustration, compared to the vast majority of hotels and villas that are located further away than we are.

Shops, fast food, and restaurants are close to the villas on Route 192. You can drive or walk there.
