Suggestions for Your Last Day in Florida -

Wherever you are staying you may find that you need to leave your villa by 10 or 11 o’clock but may not need to get to the airport until 3 or 4 o’clock. Your decision will depend on the nature of your group but here are some suggestions.

If you are checking in at Downtown Disney (Travellers with Virgin) then if you haven’t been there during your stay you can do some last minute shopping and enjoy a meal without moving the car. Alternatively you might like to just move a little distance to the West and Visit Disney’s Boardwalk. This is part of the Disney Boardwalk Hotel but visitors are welcome. You can self-park your car in the visitor’s car park and then walk down to the Boardwalk.

It is like stepping back in time to the 1950’s British Seaside, except that there is a lake instead of the sea and the “pier” goes right around. It is a very pleasant stroll around or you can hire one of the family bicycles, which is great fun. If you just want to chill you can enjoy a coffee and muffin, or an ice cream, or have your lunch there.

Around the other side of the lake there are more grand hotels and a marina where you can hire a fishing boat. Certainly it is different to the thrill rides of the theme parks.

Another good place for 2 – 3 hours is Gatorland and this has the advantage of being closer to the airport than most of the other attractions. You can, of course see alligators and also learn quite a bit about them and other local wildlife.

If you really just want to chill we find Celebration a good place to go to watch the world go by. You can sit in the rocking chairs under the sun shades, enjoy window shopping, and enjoy a leisurely lunch.

Of course if you haven’t managed to hit the shops during your holiday you may want to visit one of the malls. Premium Outlets is our favourite for bargains.

Most villa owners, like us, will be delighted to help you find just the activity that is right for you and your group so do ask for advice about activities and visits that will be just right for your group.
