    Last visit we stayed in Emerald Isle and it was wonderful and a bit closer than WH which I hear is nice also. You'll only be a few minutes from parking and 192 is pretty easy to navigate.

    Windsor Hills is perfect. Beautiful homes and fantastic Resort Pool.
    Best part though is the location, just a few minutes in the car to Formosa Gardens area shops and restaurants.
    Outback Steakhouse!!!

    We booked a place in Windsor Hills through All Star Vacation Homes in 2008. Nice place and just outside the gate there was a shopping center with grocery, etc. Took about 10 minutes or less to get onto WDW property.

    Adding my 2 cents that Windsor Hills is a great place. I'll have to check out Emerald Isle since you say its closer.

    A most magical welcome and Emerald Isle is only 5 minutes to Disney property if that.

    My friend's mom has a house in Emerald Island Resort. Stayed there 3 times before. Nice place and very close to the parks. This year though we have more people on our trip and have lost contact with that particular friend over the years. We are going to try Windsor Palms this summer which is a bit further down the road by a few minutes.

    Just booked my vacation home (6 bedroom for 3 families) for November in Windsor Hills. I booked through VRBO and got a really good deal. Since I'm working with the owner directly and not through an agency, she offered me a better price per night than was listed on the website and I got free pool/spa heat! The house is beautiful!

    This is a family forum. Think the one you're looking for is a little further down on the interwebs.....

    Why would any female call herself mooseknuckle on a Disney fan site?

    Windsor Hills is such a lovely place, I use http://www.windsorhillsrent.com/ where you can book owners direct
    BTW topless is not allowed, it is a family resort, I went every year for the last 10 years so I know for sure that's not allowed

    We have stayed for years at Windsor Hills Condo's and they are perfect. It has remained clean and close to the parks.

    LOVE Windsor Hills, going back for the 3rd time in April. I always say the distance to MK gate is the same as staying at a value resort. I use vacationcentralflorida.com to book. Also close to tons of places to eat & shop
