Member Monday: Kissimmee, FL, Can Only Mean Disney

Member Beth M. took her first Global Discovery Vacations trip to Kissimmee, Florida. We’ll give you one guess as to why they were there: Disney World, of course! Read about Beth’s stay at the Villas at Island Club in this week’s Member Monday.

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…

Bahama Breeze and Uno right nearby on Bronson Highway. Both places had fabulous service! Especially since we had small children in tow.

Disney World/Cocoa Beach.

Family trip to Disney!

Grown children, grandchildren, and mother.

Were you traveling for a special occasion? If yes, what?
Christmas family vacation.

Any tips for a traveler to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
The resort was in the perfect location for our trip. It was close enough to come and go from any of the Disney parks, as well as tons of food, shopping and more nearby.

Additional Comments
Loved having our own “home” for the week where we could spread out and do our own thing, especially with meals. Condos do need to have their beds updated though. Otherwise, we loved our week!
