We are planning to go to Disney Nov 15-20 and now that my in-laws are joining us, we are interested in a nice 3 bedroom home within 5 minutes of the park. Is that even possible? A pool would be a plus of course. Thanks

Try a search for Windsor Hills, I think that is close and from what I've read here, there are nice homes.

You may not get a 3 br pool home in the newer subdivisions, usually start at 4 br. They have 3 br townhouses that have a splash pool but not full size.
Oak Island Cove, Indian Creek and Sunset Lakes have a few but price the 4 br in Emerald Island, Rolling Hills and you may get the same price. Windsor Hills 4 br pool homes will probably be more expensive. These are the subdivisions in this area: Windsor Hills, Rolling Hills, Formosa Gardens Estates, Oak Island Cove/Harbour, Acadia Estates, Indian Creek, Emerald Island, Windsor Palms, Sunset Lakes
Click on #1 on this map for Windsor Hills, zoom in a little and click the markers to the left of there for the other subdivisions.

You can't go wrong with Windsor Hills. I couldn't believe how close it was to the parks, especially Animal Kingdom

I have never booked a vacation home and am also thinking about Windsor Hills. Who do you book through?

You can book directly with owners on windsorhillsrent.com , vrbo.com, homeaway.com etc.
Or you can go through floridasunvacationhomes.com , allstarvacationhomes.com and some others.

We are staying at Windsor Hills for the first time in Dec. We have never rented a home before either, but so far Diane has answered every question we have. For us being 1st timers we have a lot! :)

I booked through Floridasunvacationhomes.com. They were very easy to work with and we rented Tuesday-Tuesday, which not every company does.

We booked our Condo at Windsor Hills through ****************.com and I'm sure they do houses too. We just got back and had a wonderful time at Windsor Hills. The kids loved the park and the pool. If we go back to Florida we would stay there again. The drive was nothing and there is everything you need close by.

We stayed at Winsor Hills last year, and yes, it's close. This year we chose a house in Oak Island Cove. It's a nice 3/2 house and, from what I can tell, it's pretty close, too.

We are planning to go to Disney Nov 15-20 and now that my in-laws are joining us, we are interested in a nice 3 bedroom home within 5 minutes of the park. Is that even possible? A pool would be a plus of course. ThanksI led a group of college students to volunteer for a week at Give Kids The World Village. We stayed in one of the Villas at Seven Dwarfs Lane - "Dreams Villas". It was perfect. It was a 4 bedroom home/ 3 bath home with tons of space. It's about 5 miles from the Disney Parks, and very, very easy to get too. John and Kevin own the villa, and treat you like family. They loaded it with lots of special touches that really made you feel like you were at home. Now that we've stayed in one of the villas, it's really hard to go back to a small hotel room. I can highly, highly recommend it.

You can check them out here.

We just rented this home a couple of weeks ago. You are going to love it! My kids had so much fun playing in the pool and in the games room. If you have any additional questions on the house etc PM me!
