I'm afraid we have some bad news for you as the entire area around Disney World® is crammed with restaurants and fast food outlets.

The The Retreat at Silver Creek Weather
When staying in Florida, no matter where you stay, you'll never be far from the ocean, so as a result, the weather across the Sunshine state is partly determined by the ocean. In addition, climatically the state is divided into two. The split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. In areas to the North of the lake, which is where The Retreat at Silver Creek is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.
So, when staying in The Retreat at Silver Creek, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the summer months of June to September. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.
Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a 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.
Other Vacation Rental Communities
The Retreat at Silver Creek offers a range of good vacation rental townhomes and it's a convenient place to stay, but you should also look around at other communities and resorts which are located within a few miles of The Retreat at Silver Creek and which might also be of interest. This really should start with the sister community of Serenity at Silver Creek and staying in the Clermont and Davenport areas, you might want to look at Glenbrook and also Four Corners and in Davenport, Highlands Reserve which is a golfing community. 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 Encantada Resort which is close to Disney and Lucaya Village Resort , 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.

In this sunny Florida city, Disney, Universal and SeaWorld are the big three parks, each attracting tens of millions of visitors every year.

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 The Retreat at Silver Creek.
Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers far less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to The Retreat at Silver Creek, but we generally advise on this one. To reach The Retreat at Silver Creek 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 Highway 192 W, drive for 6 miles and then turn right onto US27. Continue on US27 for just under one and a half miles before turning right on to Woodcrest Way. Then after 1.4 miles, turn right onto Silver Cove Drive and The Retreat at Silver Creek will be directly ahead.
