If you are currently planning a trip to Florida, you could easily be brimming with excitement. The ‘Sunshine State’ lives up to its name and then some, being resplendent in such top-tier tourist attractions as Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. 

It’s no wonder that when people are looking for Florida holiday accommodation to book, they often pay a particularly large amount of attention to Greater Orlando, the central Floridan area where both of the above-mentioned clusters of theme parks are located. 

However, there are many good reasons for you to particularly think about the stunning Champions Gate villas available to reserve via Ocean Florida. 

Walt Disney World is conveniently close to Champions Gate 

Do you have kids you will be taking with you on your Florida getaway? There would certainly be plenty for them to enjoy there — even beyond the opportunity to meet Mickey Mouse (you don’t have to tell them it’s not the ‘real’ Mickey Mouse…) in person.

Walt Disney World spans 27,258 acres (43 square miles) — twice the size of Manhattan — and, on average, attracts more than 58 million visitors a year.

As these statistics barely skim the surface of the resort’s appeal, we urge you to learn about everything Walt Disney World has to offer — including its theme parks, water parks and live shows, not to mention the retail outlets at Disney Springs. 

Another plus point is that ‘the Happiest Place on Earth’ — as Walt Disney World has been dubbed — is within a 10-mile driving distance of Champions Gate Resort, where those villas we referred to earlier can be found. So, what — and where — exactly is Champions Gate? 

Champions Gate in a nutshell 

Though Champions Gate is technically a resort, it can feel a lot more like its own self-contained city. Whatever you do call it, it sits in Florida’s Osceola County — and between the cities of Kissimmee and Davenport. 

Once you have turned up at Champions Gate and got yourself all set up at your villa there, you will be able to sample a staggeringly broad range of exciting amenities all packed onto the resort’s roughly 1,500-acre land. Here are insights into just a few of those onsite amenities…

Get active during your Florida stay 

If you are the physically active type, you could have underestimated how much you would be able to incorporate many of your usual fitness efforts even into your holiday routine. 

For example, as a guest at Champions Gate, you will have access to 16,000-square-foot Oasis Clubhouse, where you could perfect your six-pack at the fitness centre or take a dip in a luxurious swimming pool. 

Champions Gate is also home to an 18-hole golf course that — perhaps unsurprisingly, having been designed by former ‘world number one’ golfer Greg Norman — is of international standard. 

Tuck into some nutritious dinner at the Oasis Grille Room 

Of course, your Florida workout regimen could only go so far if you aren’t being careful to eat regularly enough — not only for energy but also for keeping up that muscle-building protein intake.

How fortunate, then, that family-friendly restaurant the Oasis Grille Room can serve a varied selection of succulent meals and snacks on any day of the week at Champions Gate. 

Sit (or lay) back and relax 

This would obviously be another good way for you to replenish your energy. One good place to do that would be the Champions Gate resort spa, where the stress-busting treatments available include facials and full-body massages. 

Then there’s the Oasis Clubhouse movie theatre — which, with its 28-seat capacity, provides a cosy ambience for guests to enjoy free of charge while watching a new film on the immersive 120-inch screen every day. 

Champions Gate: not the only choice, but certainly a compelling one

We’re not pretending that Champions Gate will be for everyone. Indeed, we would encourage would-be holidayers to consider a wide range of geographically dispersed Florida villas for 2024 trips. 

However, Central Florida remains hard to beat as a base from which to explore various parts of the state; after all, you would literally be at the centre of it all!
