Windward Cay - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
A small development of varying sized villas just off highway US192 near to Medieval times. Windward Cay overlooks a conservation area and offers easy access to the nearby WalMart supercenter, along with many restaurants and shops on US192. Being in such a fantastic location, the Walt Disney World Resort parks are equally accessible, along with Seaworld, Universal Studios and the International Drive area using Interstate 4.
For golfers, Windward Cay provides an equally fantastic location for your visit with a number of excellent courses in the area. From Hunter's Creek in the east to Celebration in the west, all are easily accessible through back-door routes.
With Windward Cay being located between the north side of Poinciana Boulevard and US192 , there is the expected array of shops, restaurants, supermarkets and bars. Nearby restaurants include Chili's, Olive Garden, Applebee's, McDonald's, Wendys, TGI Fridays, Bob Evans, Smokey Bones and even the Medieval Times and Capone's dinner shows. Travel a little further towards the new 'Loop' complex (off Osceola Parkway) and expect even more shops, a JC Penneys department store and more great restaurants. For those everyday essentials, there is the local WalMart near Medieval Time), Super Target and Publix all within very easy reach.
For walking off those evening meals, visit one of the many gift shops or themed crazy golf courses dotted along US192, towards Kissimmee. Alternatively, head towards the lights and sounds that Downtown Disney has to offer - from Marketplace shops, a cinema, Planet Hollywood, Pleasure Island nightspot and many more nighttime attractions.

Walt Disney World Resort and the Lake Buena Vista area are very much one in the same. This is the area south-east of the Walt Disney World Resort - towards Kissimmee. Rental communities here are more established and offer vacation villas in a great location, especially with the array of nearby restaurants, shops, WalMart, Publix and Target supermarkets. There is also all the crazy golf you can handle! For an evening with a difference, the Medieval Times dinner show (with knights and horses) is very close by.
