    In my never-ending quest for a vacation home I have come across a few I am considering.

    My DH is away for a few days and I am trying to gather all my info on each house.

    One of the "homes of interest" is in Legacy Park. That is further away than I had originally planned on but it seems like a very nice house at a good rate.

    Here is the location description given by the home-owner:

    The villa is 1.5 mile south of highway 27 and road 192, with quick and easy access to highway 27 and I-4.

    It is only 10 minute drive away from the major Disney theme parks, 25 minutes from Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World, and 30 minutes from Orlando International Airport. There is a super Walmart just a 2 minute drive away

    What do you think? Thanks.

    I'm not sure. To tell you the truth, I've looked at web-sites until my eyes are crossed.

    This one is one of my top three. One of the others is at Emerald Island, the other is also in Legacy Park. You seem to be able to get more "bang for the buck" in LP.

    Thanks for the help. We are staying for two weeks and I didn't want to wind up so far from the parks it would be a pain to get there.

    We think its great here and always stay at Highgate on Legacy.


    The distances are about right and we have had no problem getting to any parks.

    There are plenty of Restaurants in the vicinity now and a large walmart and publix.

    I've looked at some there also. During peak times, how long does it take to get to the parks or back to the house?

    If you exit Legacy Park and go straight across you can use West side Blvd to get to 192 and the parks that way .Eventually when Funie Steed is finished you can get to Sherberth without using 192 at all .There will be traffic signals at the 27/Florence Villa Grove within the next 18 months to make the junction easier .

    I agree, we used this road last time we were out, but sometimes it is still closed

    West side isn't closed although both carriage ways are not in use at the moment I have just come down it from Olive Garden sometimes there is a road closed sign from the 27 end but nothing from the 192 end but the road is usable as there are no work men there so not sure why they don't take the sign down .
