Oakwater Resort on Youtube

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Guide, we visited each of the communities in the Orlando area and in a lot of cases we also recorded a brief video of the community and uploaded it to Youtube. We did this on our visit to Oakwater Resort, which you can see by clicking below. These videos are fairly short and are simply intended to give an impression of the community and provide potential guests with more of a feel for the neighborhood.

Florida, and in particular, Central Florida is renowned as a world leader in tourism.

These are predominantly spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Oakwater Resort. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; 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.

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, Pizza Hut, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and last, but not least, Wendy's.

Supermarkets
If eating at home is on the menu, then you'll have to find a supermarket nearby. Staying in a vacation rental at Oakwater 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.

Other Shopping
If you're looking for something outside of 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 theater, plus a selection of restaurants and shops which include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll want to drive east towards Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers a range of shopping 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, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Climate at Oakwater Resort

If you stand on any spot in Florida and you won't be more than 75 miles from the closest beach. As a result, the weather around that spot you're on will be influenced by the proximity of the ocean. So, when you also add in the fact that the Sunshine state is climatically split into two, horizontally midway down the state, it makes the weather patterns even more interesting. That spilt, or division occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of Florida. Anywhere to the North of the lake, which is where Oakwater Resort, Kissimmee is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, as Oakwater Resort is to the north of Lake Okeechobee, the weather will range from warm and relatively pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the period of June thru to September. Florida is called the Sunshine state for good reason, the sun shines on a good number of days each year and the temperature rarely ventures anywhere near 0°C or 32°F, even in the depths of winter. So, if you visit Orlando's theme parks and attractions outside of the summer months, you should have a relatively dry and comfortable experience. But during those hot 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 with daily thunderstorms accompanying the heat.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Oakwater Resort offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which are located within a few miles of Oakwater Resort and which might also be of interest. 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 Calabay Parc and also the confusingly similarly named Calabay Parc at Tower Lake and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to keep costs down, then check out 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.

Going slightly more upmarket, it's worth taking a 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 Oakwater Resort

Orlando is one of the most visited American cities, popular with both domestic and international travelers, Once nicknamed the City Phenomenal, it's now internationally recognized as the City Beautiful and the Theme Park Capital of the World. Today, all the domestic and most international airlines of any worth fly into Orlando's airports each day. The city 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 Oakwater Resort.

A large number of flights arrive and depart Orlando International Airport each day, with Sandford far less well served. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Oakwater Resort, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Oakwater Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192 in a westerly direction. Once on Hwy 192 W, drive for 4 miles and then turn left onto Old Lake Wilson road.
