Windwood Bay - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Windwood Bay is one of the new, smaller more discrete communities located south of the Disney Reunion resort and just off Interstate 4. Over the past few years, this area has started to be developed and now offers newer vacation villas, although local amenities may be limited. If you are visiting for a golfing break, the community is located centrally to many of the fantastic local golf courses - including Championsgate and Ginn Reunion amongst others.
Located just over a mile away is the Championsgate area and shopping complex, for which there are a number of restaurants and eateries including Chilis, La Crepe, Subway, China One (take-away), Pizza Hut, as well as the Omni resort itself for fine dining. For those everyday essentials, there is a Publix supermarket, Walgreen's pharmacy and 7-Eleven one-stop shop. The nearest WalMart is towards highway US192 near to the Medieval Times dinner show.
Around 6 miles south at the intersection between Interstate 4 and US27 is the Posner Park shopping complex which has major stores including JC Penney, Target, Ross, Dress for Less and many more. There are also a selection of restaurants and a tavern near by.

Driving distances are taken from Google Maps and reference a central starting point in the community. When quoting distances to Walt Disney World Resort, these are not taken to the 'gates', but are representative of the actual distance to the specific attraction. Driving distances are not biased to any villa community.
Located south of the prestigious Walt Disney Reunion resort, the communities between ChampionsGate and Loughman are some of the newer vacation home developments. With purpose built resorts surrounded by fantastic golf courses, lakes and open woodland, the area is fast becoming a must-stay location. However, as the area is still growing, local shops and restaurants are likely to be limited, which means a car is a must to get around.
