Many people think they can not afford a Disney vacation. But guess what? You probably could if you stayed off property like we do. We are able to visit Disney World every year because we save and save all year long. But we also save money by staying off property. This year we stayed at Windsor Hills Resort in a beautiful two bedroom two bathroom condo. Windsor Hills Resort is literally less than ten minutes away from Disney. We loved the condo that we rented from Dave & Patti at Vacation Central Florida. You can really tell that Dave & Patti have really gone all out with decorating their condo and making it a great home away from home for their guests. The condo was amazing. I would highly recommend it. And best of all these condo's are available for rent for as low as $199/week (if you catch a great sale). Most weeks rent for $399+ for a two bedroom two bathroom. The property is absolutely beautiful and I felt 100% safe. There is a gated entrance and you have to have a pass to get in the resort. There is a fun playground for children to enjoy:
Gated entrance to Windsor Hills Resort
Guests can also access this wonderful fitness center that overlooks the beautiful resort style pool

These condo's are all decorated adorably! My children absolutely loved their bedroom:
Little touches like this talking Mickey Mouse lamp really make the room fun
The kitchen was fully stocked complete with special Disney touches such as these door knobs
The master bathroom was huge and had a wonderful shower.
Windsor Hills Resort has a beautiful beach entry style resort pool complete with comfortable lounge chairs and a hot tub for relaxing. There is also a children's splash area and a waterslide.
My daughter loved this water slide
Tips & Advice:
- Be sure to check their website for last minute specials, this is the best way to save money
- There is a wonderful and somewhat brand new shopping center just down the street from Windsor Hills (take a left onto I-92) with a nice Publix grocery store and a Super Target
- Allow time in your schedule to just relax and spend a day at this beautiful resort style pool.
- There is a shop on property at the club house that you can purchase milk, bread, etc. if you are too tired to visit the grocery store when you check in. They also serve sandwiches and drinks which is great if you want to spend a day relaxing by the pool. They are open 7 days a week from 8 am until 10 pm.
