The Safest Communities in Orlando

Orlando is full of an array of different communities, many of which are suitable for various vacations.

Feeling safe when away from home is vital, especially if staying with younger children. This means researching and ensuring you choose the right resort, fitting for your own security.

Thanksgiving in Orlando

Thanksgiving is just four weeks away but any of you who haven’t finalised your plans yet might want to consider a late deal in Orlando. There are a number of luxury villas which are offering great rates for the coming month.

Celebrating thanksgiving in Orlando

Late Orlando deals

Formosa Gardens 20

Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks and eating a superb celebration meal. The villas all have top of the range kitchens with plenty of room to prepare a celebration meal. If you’re taking your extended family or going with a group of friends there’ll even be room for them to help too!

With your own private pool to enjoy the Florida sunshine, a games room and even a cinema – there should be plenty to keep everyone entertained too.

What’s on?
If you’re heading to the theme parks for Thanksgiving you may not find any special celebrations. But you will find turkey dinners offered at some of the DisneyWorld restaurants.

Late Orlando deals

Main Street Electrical Parade

The Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom offers a traditional turkey meal. It’s advisable to book as soon as you can! If you miss this, all the theme parks have turkey carts where you can grab a smoked turkey leg to get you in the mood.

You’ll also get the chance to see the Main Street Electrical Parade full of fantastic floats and shimmering lights.

Many of the Christmas celebrations will already be happening at the Magic Kingdom too so you can enjoy the fun as they are all part of Mickey’s Very Happy Christmas Party. Look out for A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas Show.

Late Orlando deals

The American Adventure

At Epcot head over to the American Adventure Theatre to catch the American Adventure which includes lots on animatronics and visual effects. This short show takes you through America’s history so it’s perfect for Thanksgiving. Get there a few minutes early to hear the capella group Voices of Liberty.

Universal Studios don’t have anything special to celebrate Thanksgiving but some of their hotels do. On the Harbor Piazza outside the Portofino Bay Hotel they host Holiday Harbour Nights. It’s a wine and food event with jazz bands and the rather grandly lit Christmas tree.

At their Royal Pacific Resort they host a special tree lighting ceremony which includes a Polynesian buffet and live entertainment including hula dancers and a fire knife dancer.

Of course many Orlando restaurants will be offering Thanksgiving feasts but it is advisable to book.

Holiday wishes
Whether you choose to go out and celebrate or stay ‘home’, Orlando will be the perfect place to give thanks.

You can book your luxury villa online and also grab your theme park tickets at the same time.

Top of your vacation priority list

What is top of the list to make your vacation the best? Is it location every time? Or is your accommodation the most important thing about your R & R time? Maybe your entertainment of choice has to be available, be it golf, water sports or the beach?

Well in case you can’t decide we thought we’d share some of our top choices.

Sunshine

Luxury vacation rentals

Anguilla 9

Yes we’re sorry but for us sunshine and warm temperatures are important. So we’d choose a vacation location for the season so that we could enjoy our favourite pass-times from al fresco dining to a dip in the pool. How about the Mediterranean in September or the Caribbean in winter or Florida any time of the year?

Of course we might make exceptions for skiing vacations although the sunshine is still good!

Accommodation

Luxury vacation rentals

Formosa Gardens 2

Good, clean and comfortable accommodation ties for top place with the sun. We want somewhere that we can call home for the length of our vacation. A Top Villas’ luxury villa wherever it’s located is the perfect answer.

They are spacious, superbly kitted out and private, lavishly furnished, luxurious with superb surroundings. Many have their own private pools and hot tubs. Some of our favorites are in the Caribbean or Florida. What are we waiting for?

Location

Luxury vacation rentals

St Tropez 103

Of course the location is important but sometimes venturing to somewhere completely new to you can be a wonderful surprise. So if you’ve never visited the French Riviera or the delights of West Coast America, why not give it a try?

Entertainment
If you are hell-bent on spending your whole vacation on the greens then you will obviously need to be close to some great golf courses. The same applies if you want to surf or dive or any other specialist form of sporting activity.

If theme parks are your thing, then no where beats Orlando and the most famous of them all, DisneyWorld. Of course Orlando has many other theme parks too and you’ll be hard pushed to visit them all – or muster up the energy.

Whatever your preferred entertainment, you can bet that there’s a Top Villa nearby.  One thing is for sure, whatever your top priorities for a super vacation, Top Villas luxury vacation rentals are easy to source and book online.
