Overlooking the first tee of the Watson course and with private pool and spa, The Pineapples is tastefully & comfortably furnished. If you are looking for a family holiday in Orlando where you can mix the activity of the theme parks with complete relaxation in luxurious, beautiful surroundings then Reunion is it! Just 6 miles from the west gates of Disney, and a short drive from the many shopping malls, restaurants and other attractions of Orlando, it really does offer something for everyone. We have a membership package so we are able to offer our guests some access to members' only facilities such as the on-site water park & golf. All of our guests can take advantage of the onsite Spa and restaurants. Reunion boasts 10 community pools, 2 of which are within walking distance of the Villa, a Club House restaurant (walkable from the villa in under 5 minutes) serving very reasonably priced meals, and the Reunion Grande with its lobby cocktail bar, further restaurant and '11'. 11 is a rooftop bar & restaurant with a pool & on a clear night gives some of the best views of the Epcot & Magic Kingdom fireworks around.

Orlando is well known for its beautiful year-round temperatures, activities, theme parks and shopping!
A holiday in Orlando can include visits to Walt Disney World, awesome water parks, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure, a swim with the dolphins at Discovery Cove, fireworks over the water at Sea World after watching the amazing Shamu show - all rounded off with a swim in your private pool or a glass of something chilled in your spa!
A day out at a local beach on either the Atlantic or Gulf coast is also well within reach; as is Kennedy Space Centre
Our home is situated in the 'Homestead' area of Reunion and is one of the closest to the resort centre - probably one of only a handful that are genuinely walkable in the hot florida sunshine. We are also in walking distance of the Seven Eagles community pool.
You will need a car to get to the theme parks - Disney is closest and takes around 15 minutes.
Reunion Resort has plenty of on-site facilities.There are on-site restaurants at the Club House, the Grande Lobby Sushi bar, Forte and 11 all at the Reunion Grande (all of which are a very short walk from our Villa) as well as various snack bars close to the community pools, playgrounds & jogging / cycle trails - bicycles are available to hire on site. All of these facilities are open to all guests without membership.
With its lazy river, water slides and sunny/shaded relaxation areas (as well as on site bar/snack bar with poolside service), the on-site water park is fantastic if you fancy a day off theme parks. It is a members' only facility, but we can provide our guests with temporary geust day passes. We can discuss the best way to use these days with you as we have rented on Reunion before we purchased our property.
Reunion is the only resort featuring 3 courses designed by the legends of the game - Watson, Niklaus & Palmer. Although the courses are not currently open to the public (there is a rumour that this could change following the Salamander Group partnership)..... we are able to provide our guests with temporary membership days (subject to payment of appropriate green fees).
These are also members' only facilities - but can be combined with guest passes for golf and water park!
There are more shopping malls & outlet centres than you can imagine - we have our favourites and would be happy to email details/directions and websites. International Drive boasts just about every type of restaurant and alternative attractions to the theme parks. Celebration is very close by and offers many lakeside restaurants, smaller more individual shops and a peaceful lakeside walk.
Most of the theme parks have night-time parades & fireworks every nigh - it is best to check your dates against the park's own websites to see if there are any special events. Disney's new Fantasyland Circus opens in late March 2012.
