Glenbrook - Visiting the Attractions and Travelling Around
Community / Resort Pool
Tennis / Sports Courts
Located just over a mile north of the US27 and US192 intersection, Glenbrook is a new development of around 270 luxury equipped villas - from 3 to 7 bedroom, each with a private screened pool. Alongside the palm tree lined roads, properties offer ample space and privacy.
Central to the community is the clubhouse, which provides great facilities, including a media room with PC and Internet access (there is also Wi-Fi access), TV room, pool & air-hockey for the children and tennis, volleyball for the more energetic. All this and a great community pool with fountain to keep you cool during those sunny Florida days.
Access to Walt Disney World Resort is via US27, which with the improvement of the roads around the area should make getting to and from the parks straightforward and enjoyable. If you are heading for Seaworld, Universal Studios or the International Drive area, carry on past Disney and head north on Interstate 4.
At the entrance to Glenbrook is the local supermarket, with a couple of gas stations at the junction with US27. For essentials, the WalMart Supercenter is conveniently located just over 1 mile south on US27. Adjacent to this is a Blimpie Subs & Salad, Chilis, Quiznos sub, Wendys, Taco Bell, a Chinese take-away and a number of local pizzerias not too much further. Should you need it, there is also a Lowe's electrical superstore on the other side of the road.
For evening meals, a number of restaurants can be found on the US192 (towards Kissimmee), however, if you prefer to stay closer to home, there is Randy's restaurant and Devenney's Irish pub not too far.

Situated to the west of Walt Disney World Resort, the area is less populated than the US192, yet still offers an array of eateries and shops, as well as the obligatory WalMart and Publix supermarkets.
Heading south towards the junction of US192 (and east along it), the number and variety of shops, outlets and restaurants will certainly increase. For the keen golfers, head a couple of miles further south beyond the junction with US192 for a number of popular and challenging golf courses bordering US27.
