Your number-one resource for destination wedding, vow renewal, honeymoon, and romance travel advice
"in an enchanted land, there was a place where wedding dreams and honeymoon wishes came true every day. Today, such a place actually exists -- at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Since 1991, over 15,000 couples have sealed their promise to each other here in uniquely magical ceremonies. And happy honeymooning couples from around the world have made us one of the most popular vacation destinations on the planet."
Just two-and-a-half miles from Walt Disney World, close to Sea World and Universal Studios, Windsor Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida, offers the best of all possible worlds for couples travelling with children or extended families. It's a perfect home base for a destination wedding, vow renewal, or anniversary celebration with extended family, or a second wedding or honeymoon with the kids in tow. Though it's an easy half-hour drive from Orlando International Airport and just a few miles off Route 192's brightly lit strip of restaurants and shopping, it feels like a relaxed oasis, removed from the tourist hubbub.
The Comforts of Home
Our properties are independently owned and therefore reflect some unique touches in furnishings and decor. You're sure to find our home away from home will suit you.
This six-bedroom home will provide you with the comforts of home and then some! The kitchen boasts a full-size refrigerator, electric stove, microwave oven, double sink, and dishwasher. Cabinets house a blender, toaster plus margarita glasses, banana split boats, and an assortment of pots, pans, and utensils. On the wall are the speed-dial numbers for local pizza and Chinese takeout delivery for those of you who don't enjoy cooking on vacation. With a first floor washer and dryer you can launder your favorite outfits several times during the trip.
The architecture might be described as southern contemporary with three downstairs bedrooms off the open floor plan living room, dining room, and kitchen with breakfast bar. Four bathrooms means peace, privacy, and convenience, especially for parents who enjoy a spacious, bright master bathroom with an extra-wide double sink and vanity, glass-enclosed walk-in shower, oversized tub, and walk-in closet. In addition to the king-size bed in three of the master bedrooms, there is a queen size bed, a set of twin beds and bunk beds in the one Disney-themed room. The home is beautifully decorated throughout and perfectly maintained.
For entertainment, we have a games room, hi-fi stereo system; a play-station 2 with games in one of the kids' rooms; and 7 HDTVs and 6 DVD players, including one in the master bedroom and a 50" wide-screen with DVD player in the living room with fim library. Of course, our private heated pool and spa is the ultimate in luxury. Alarms on each of the doors leading to the patio will alerted you if little ones attempt to head out to the pool unsupervised.
High chair and portable crib are provided to make the stay more comfortable for baby. And while it feels like home, you can arrange for housekeeping services at an additional charge, so it still feels like a vacation.
The Amenities of a Great Resort
All guests enjoy a wide array of resort amenities that offer parents both privacy and peace of mind. At the center of the resort is the 7,500-square-foot Clubhouse, tastefully decorated for guests' enjoyment. It's a perfect place to gather friends and family. Within the Clubhouse guests will find the fitness center, the game room with pool tables and video games, and the sundry shop. In addition, guests can use the 58-seat state of the art movie theater. Imagine a vow renewal where you share treasured memories from home videos, or perhaps a private showing of your all-time favorite romantic movie on the big screen for your second honeymoon?
Outside, the three-acre recreation area includes tennis, basketball, and sand volleyball courts and a children's playground designed for fun and safety. The Olympic-size community pool and spa invite guests to enjoy the Florida sun with fellow vacationers. Windsor golfers enjoy special rates at two nearby courses.
Windsor Palms Resort is a great value for families, too. While a two-bedroom villa at Disney's BoardWalk Villas costs $905 per night (regular season), a six bedroom home at Windsor Palms is from only $200 inc. tax per night during the same time period. Luxury for Lovers and Family Fun, Too
For the luxury of private rooms for parents and children and the conveniences of both home and resort amenities, Windsor Palms provides unparalleled comfort and value. Our children can't wait to go back to what they call "our Florida home," and we know we can have privacy and romance even on a family vacation.
For those wishing to host a destination wedding at Windsor Palms, simply do the planning on your own or hire one of Orlando?s many qualified wedding consultants, including Just Marry!, An Affair to Remember, or Orlando Weddings.
