Best Things About the Resort:

Resort Experience:
Just 4 miles from the Disney theme parks. Orange Lake offers an 18-hole Arnold Palmer-designed championship course, a 27-hole resort course, a lighted nine-hole par 3 walking course, and a 36-hole miniature course perfect for lovers of golf. Blue heron, ducks and many birds fly around here and land, they are all tame and feed from your hand. There are many planned activities and nightly entertainment. It was a haven of tranquility away from the bustle of the parks. For shopping there is a large Publix supermarket nearby, and on highway 192 there are numerous places to eat. Our favorite was the Black Angus steak house. For homesick Brits there is Ramsbottoms fish and chip shop. Just a short hop away from Orange Lake is the I4 to Sea World and Universal Studios. Just off highway 192 is Old Town a unique place with shops that provide good old-fashioned service; the candle shop offers unique gifts. Saturday night is not to be missed in Old Town, they have a vintage car parade you can see all those cars seen in American films of the 1950s and 1960s, with live music and one of those bucking bronco’s to ride. The Red Baron bar a friendly place hanging above the bar is a bi-plane; there is a saltwater taffy shop. A big wheel is at the entrance to the town along with one or two other old-fashioned rides. Top off your trip with a helicopter flight over Kissimmee and the theme parks.
