Garmin GPS Does not recognize address

I am putting in the address of 9560 Via Encinas, LBV and it does not recognize the address. Is there a different address or something very close to us that i could use instead - Thanks

Hi there so jealous of you can't wait till September to get out there, I'm just wondering as your sat looking out over the resort how far from the Caribbean beach are you in walking terms??

Sorry, don't know how to reply directly to posts on my phone!

With my GPS, it recognized the address as Orlando, not Lake Buena Vista.

There is no easy way to walk to Caribbean Beach - no walkway, no path, lots of fences, trees, and ditches. You'd have to walk on the road, which I really don't recommend. Vacation drivers not sure where they're going and trying to read signs don't pay attention always to bodies walking/running on the road.

Try this, it's the transit address:
14314 Chelonia Pky and Bonnet Creek Resort Ln,Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

I used Google maps and typed Wyndham Bonnet Creek into the map search bar. The Encinas address came up but it gave me directions.

Sounds great! Did you try to tighten the coax on the TV, or push in the HDMI or A/V cables? Sometimes that's all you need!

What else can you see, Disney wise, from your balcony? What is the parking like outside of your building? What is the pool that is closest to you?

Thanks!

I'll try that- thanks!

Can't see anything Disney at all from any part of the resort that we've been to yet. But I don't care at all. We're at the parks all day. This place is a nice, relaxing retreat away from it all. View from the balcony of the lake and at least three pools is beautiful. There are pools everywhere! We haven't checked out the one closet to our tower yet. We went to the big one with the lazy river & kids spray ground behind the main bldg/check in today. They had a bar there, whirlpool. It was one building o the right. Five minute walk. We're hoping to hit a new pool each day. The resort is so pretty that we do not mind walking to get to a pool.

Parking lot is small outside building 4, but we've always found a spot. Garage is close too.

They had face painting & balloon animals for the kids at the activity center today. Very cute!

As someone else replied, the street is not walk able at all. But it's the next resort over. I can't imagine that it's nicer than this!

CB is nicely themed but you are in the best possible place at WBC! Will never stay on site again after 3 wonderful stays here. Boardwalk and DD are just a short drive away, too.

Enjoy! We're all jealous!!

I found a map by googling Disneyworld area and resorts. There is a good map in the front of Unofficial Guide to Disneyworld. I bought the book and suscribed to the website touringplans.com but the site is available for free. I just paid for personalized itineraries. The website otherwise is free.
I have spoken to people and HS&Epcot are less than 10 min and AK&MK are 15-20 min. However, from MK parking is another 10-20 min to get inside.
Can anyone verify?

Took us about 13-15 minutes for HS and EPCOT, especially if we hit all the red lights. AK was closer to 15-18, and MK was 18-20. You park at Transportation and Ticket Center for Magic Kingdom, then take a tram or walk to the TTC, and then take the ferry (holds more people, but goes slower), or the monorail (faster, but longer line) to the Magic Kingdom. One day they had buses because the ferry wasn't running, and that was QUICK, but I've only encountered that once.
