Best villa areas near Disney

We're looking to rent a villa. It needs to be 5 bedroom and close to Disney, but not neccessarily on Disney property if they work out a lot more expensive. When searching for properties I find great villas but not sure how close they are to Disney. Which are the nearest, good areas/resorts?

I wouldnt consider taking a villa or an hotel on highway 27 if it were free. Its far to far out. but there ar a lot out there, even as far down as Haines City. And are advertised as 15-20 from Disney, ( this is calculated in "flying time")

As far as whether Windsor Hills is the "closest resort" to Disney, Windsor Hills says it is 2 miles from Disney. That is what my estimate would be for Indian Wells, though I read one ad for a rental house there that said it was 4 miles away. As far as the resort part, calling Indian Wells a resort is probably a stretch; it does have some common areas, but nothing more than what you'd expect in a small residential neighborhood; certainly nothing like Windsor Hills. Maybe its the closest neighborhood (if its closer) with SFR for rent to Disney. But as far as this thread is concerned, I seriously doubt there is anything as big as a 5 bedroom for rent in Indian Wells.

The 27 is a lovely place to stay I agree that there are places on the south that are a distance but in general they are all withn the magic 20 mins distance -some closer.People are quick to knock the 27 -some without staying there - yet you can still be in your car and away quicker than people waiting for transport to go to Disney property.There are some communities on the 27 that are closer than those on Ponciana It takes 15 mins to drive to the some of them from the 192 but people hardly knock that area -I wonder why?

The 27 is a great place to stay close enough to the action but away from the bright lights and noise of the 192 I love it but each to their own .

There are a lot of larger villas near to WDW (15 - 20 mins away) 15 min drive. I have used a company before called Welcome USA. They offer 3 - 7 bedroom homes in some very nice developments, all with private pools. You should look at the website and then give them a call as they only book via travel agents on the site but will sell you the villa direct.

The website is www.welcomeusa.com and tel 407 351 2537. They will email you pics and address etc. I have booked for the last 3 years with them and always been happy.

Hope this help
