The Villa Locations map shows just about all the villa sub-divisions in the area. The vast majority of Villa’s for Rent are situated along highway 192 which runs east-west in Kissimmee (south of Disney and Universal). The 192 is a very long road, running for over 20 miles within the main tourist area. The other main area is along highway 27 which runs north-south (to the far west of Disney). There are also quite a lot of Villa’s running south to Poinciana and Champion’s Gate. As is usual with Orlando, new building developments open up all the time, even with the recession in America . . so keeping up with adding them to the map isn’t an easy task. If you know of any new developments which I haven’t shown yet – please send me the details for inclusion in the next edition.
International Drive or I-Drive as the locals call it. One of the main off-site locations for cheaper hotels. Plenty of hotels and restaurants to choose from here, plus shops, bars, mini-golf and other attractions. It’s served by its own transport system of modern buses called the I-RIDE Trolleys which go up and down I-Drive every 10 minutes or so. I-Drive is one of the few streets in the area with pavements for pedestrians. Normally the car rules.
This Map example shows part of the area called Lake Buena Vista. It also contains the location of Downtown Disney which is one of the shopping mecca’s in Orlando.
This shows the whole of side two. I-Drive at the top, Lake Buena Vista in the middle, Kissimmee at the bottom. Plus inset maps for the Villa Locations and a diagram showing the routes down from Sanford Airport. Orlando International Airport is shown on the main map (top right). The map is VERY detailed and shows all the main hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and attractions.
A very detailed map of I-Drive plus lots of tips about travelling and planning for your holiday.
