Still amazing to see these creatures. Plus there is a lot of wildlife there - turtles, gators, snakes, and a lot of birds if you’re into bird watching. We finally took the ecological boat trip on our last trip and we had a lot of fun. Learned a lot about the area and it was really informative. It costs $6 for a car with 2 or more passengers. If you have a big SUV with more than 6 I think they charge $8. Money well spent. It’s about 40-45 minutes from Winter Garden.
This is great info! Thanks for the tip.

Thanks Tom! We are having a good time. We have to keep reminding each other to pace ourselves as we’re here all winter we don’t have to get everything done in two weeks! 😆

I like this one (would love to know if they are selling it furnished...they are according to zillow)...


Anyone know if the townhomes with their own private pool (like this one) gets maintained by the HOA or homeowners?

They have a theater...how does that work? They show movies on a schedule?
Can you ask to watch, say, a football game in there?

Anyone know what they rent for? (see them on VRBO) Do they rent better when it's not covid times? The one for sale has 3 weeks booked for the rest of the year. We'd hope to rent it quite a bit more than that.
I believe these two resorts have a good reputation and are quite popular with visitors from the UK. (but, of course they wouldn’t be coming this winter because of Covid travel restrictions)
I am pretty sure each owner is responsible for maintaining their own pool and it’s not covered by the HOA.

Last minute decision Brian! We went to look at the lights in Celebration and ended up driving by the church. I’d go again if you want to go over one night.
