Festival Resort Vacation Rentals

Festival Resort - A Luxury Vacation Rental Gated Community

Festival Resort in Davenport, Florida is a new gated luxury townhome resort located less than 15+ minutes from Walt Disney World®. Set amongst 200 acres of Floridian woodlands, natural wetlands and lakes, it offers guests true upscale resort-style living while still being able to stay in touch with nature. For golfers, there's also a number of championship golf courses within a few minutes drive of the resort. The quality of both the amenities and the vacation rental homes at Festival Resort, means that you'll only need to leave the community to hit the parks, or to play a few rounds of golf, or most importantly, to partake in some retail therapy at Orlando's outlets and shopping malls.

Staying at Festival Resort

Festival Resort is conveniently located just off Ronald Reagan Parkway on Champions Gate Boulevard in Davenport, just two I-4 exits from Disney. The private resort has not yet been fully built and at the time of writing, some of the communal amenities are not yet in place. However, Festival Resort still currently offers great amenities; including the ‘Downtown' Festival clubhouse which houses a general store, and ice cream parlor, a fitness center, a state of the art video arcade and Florida style bar and grill. The beach- inspired resort pool has sun loungers and private cabanas and copious amounts of pool furniture. The kid's water park features a galleon ship allowing the children to play safely whist the adults relax and enjoy the sunshine. With beach volleyball and an 18 hole mini golf course there's plenty to keep the whole family entertained.

Homes at Festival Resort

All homes are two-storey townhomes with 3, 4 or 5 bedrooms and between 2 and 5.5 bathrooms, with some overlooking nature preserves. As in regular townhome design, they are either terraced or end-of-terrace and vary between 1,700 sq. ft. and 2,200 sq.ft. All are individually furnished and decorated. Expansive island kitchens, dining and living areas provide family-sized dining and gathering space. While there are a variety of floor plans, all main master suites are on the ground floor. Some homes have a further three master suites upstairs. Each home has a private screened lanai, some with plunge pool. Some of the homes here also have themed children's bedrooms and many have an upstairs games room.

How Far from the Attractions is Festival Resort

Florida is one of the world's top tourism destinations. Last year nearly 113 million people visited the state, creating a new record. The state has a well developed tourism infrastructure which has been built around its natural and man-made attractions, and nowhere are there so many varied and quality attractions that can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages. In terms of the man-made attractions, these predominantly reside in a band across the state from Orlando and south down towards Tampa. The beauty of staying in a vacation rental home in Festival Resort is that all of these attractions are all accessible on a day trip from the community. But vacations aren't just about the man-made attractions; you can enjoy the natural resources of Florida too. If you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is doable on a day trip. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The following driving times are approximate, but they give an indication of the convenience of staying in vacation rental home at Festival Resort:

Disney World® Parks - 15+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 20 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 20 Minutes
Legoland - 25 Minutes
Universal Studios - 30 Minutes
Fantasy of Flight - 40 Minutes
Adventure Island, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 90 Minutes

Golf and Festival Resort

With its subtropical climate and year-round sunshine, Orlando is a true golfer's paradise. The average annual temperature of 72.4 degrees makes it a great place to work on your game - or forget about it altogether and just have fun. Orlando boasts a plethora of public courses and meticulously landscaped private courses (many allow limited public play) who welcome visitors of all skill level. So, if you're a beginner looking to brush up on your game, there's a course for you, and if you're a pro looking to challenge yourself on a wide range of different layouts, there are several courses for you. Just bring your clubs - or rent them - and get ready to enjoy a scenic, memorable and fun round. Below are some golf courses near to Festival Resort:

Reunion - 10 Minutes
Mystic Dunes - 15 Minutes
Champions Gate - 5+ Minutes
Cypresswood Golf and Country Club - 30 Minutes
Polo Park East - 10 Minutes
Deer Creek RV Golf and Country Club - 10 Minutes
Swiss Fairways Golf Course - 25 Minutes
Legends Golf and Country Club - 15 Minutes
Green Valley Country Club - 20 Minutes

Restaurants Near to Festival Resort

The tourist areas around the parks are chocked full of restaurants, so if you're thinking of taking the kids out for dinner, then we could probably name a restaurant or two that are within a ten to fifteen minute drive of Festival Resort. Why not check out some of the following eateries that are in the area, including Applebee's, Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza , Golden Corral, IHOP, Logan's Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Macaroni Grill, Manny's Original Chophouse, Miller's Ale House, Moor, Olive Garden, On The Border, Outback Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Perkins, Pollo Tropical, Ponderosa, Red Lobster, Retro Station, Rosies Smokin Hot BBQ, Sakura Asian Fusion, Savion's Place, Sizzler, Shoneys, Sweet Tomatoes, Tarantino's Italian, Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is by no means exhaustive.

If you don't feel like driving too far and just want to pick up something locally, then there's a whole range of fast food restaurants nearby which include Arby's, Burger King, Checkers, Chick-fil-A, CiCi's Pizza, Cordovano Joe's Pizza , Crown Fried Chicken, Domino's Pizza, DQ Grill and Chill, Dunkin Donuts, KFC, Long John Silver's, McDonalds, Panda Express, Papa John's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and last, but not least, Wendy's.

Food Shopping
If you decide to stay home of an evening, then you'll obviously need to buy food from the supermarket. Staying in Festival Resort makes that relatively straightforward as there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a short drive of the community. So, when you make a last minute decision to have that BBQ, you'll always be able to pick up the supplies needed.

Non Supermarket Shopping
If you're looking for something beyond supermarket shopping, then you'll have to drive a little further. A few miles west on the I-4 (towards Tampa), you'll find Posner Park where there's an IMAX cinema and a whole range of restaurants and stores including, JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll have to drive into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers great options. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance of Festival Resort, you'd be advised to bring a spare credit card.

The Festival Resort Weather

When staying in Florida, you'll never be more than seventy five miles from the coast, so as a result, the weather everywhere in the Sunshine state is influenced by the ocean. On top of that, the weather in the state is divided into two. The climatic split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. The region to north of the lake, which is where Festival Resort is located, experiences weather which is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Festival Resort, Davenport, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the Fall, Winter and Spring months and extremely hot and humid weather during the period of June thru to September. Florida is not known the Sunshine state by accident, the sun shines on most days and the temperature rarely ventures below 32°F / 0°C. Which explains why, over the past fifty years, Disney and Universal Studios have both made Florida, and in particular Orlando, their home.

If you visit Orlando's theme parks and attractions outside of the summer months, you should have a relatively dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Festival Resort offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay. If you've found a property on Festival Resort that appeals to you, then we'd recommend that you send off an inquiry regarding its availability and exact cost. However, why stop there? Why not check out other communities and resorts which can be close to Festival Resort and which might also have vacation rental homes that interest you. Most homes around Disney World® are in either Kissimmee, Davenport or Clermont areas. Whilst it's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Bella Toscana and also Vista Cay Resort which is in Orlando itself, and is a similar resort to the Festival community. You might also look at Tuscan Hills which is a tempting place to stay if you're a golfer. If the total cost of the rental is an issue, then you might want to consider Crescent Lakes . When it comes to vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If the budget is not an issue, then you might want to look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of adults and children in your party before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving Directions to Festival Resort

Orlando is the theme park capital of the world and is therefore one of the world's most visited tourist regions, drawing tens of millions visitors each year. So, it's no surprise to find that a large number of international and domestic flights arrive at the city's airports each day. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Festival Resort.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and a lesser number use Sandford. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Festival Resort, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Festival Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I-4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I-4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana. Keep right at the fork and go on to Champions gate Boulevard. Continue on for just under one mile until you reach Meadows Boulevard. Festival Resort is straight ahead.
