Hello! I am just starting to plan an October trip to Disney with my daughter (will be 3.5 by then) and my mom and possibly a friend - this will be the first trip for ALL of us!!! We have decided that we will be spending more time at "home base" than most people on these boards seem to like to do - we prefer not to eat out for every meal or even every day, we will need a good deal of down time, and we all enjoy our space. So we would like to rent a 3- to 4-bedroom vacation home with a pool. I have seen some places that look wonderful, but having never been to Orlando, I am having a hard time figuring out how far the different communities are from WDW. The advertisements will always say things like "minutes from Disney" or "just 5 minutes from Disney World," but I doubt they are always completely accurate. Can anyone give me any ideas about which communities are actually closest to WDW? For example, it sounds like Windsor Hills is pretty popular (any others????) - how long does it really take to drive to the parks? Thanks so much for any help!!! I am blown away by how helpful the folks on these boards are.
