If you’re arriving by plane, you’ll probably be flying into one of Orlando’s two main airports, Orlando International (MCO – about 25 minutes by car from our home ) or Sanford International (SFB – about an hour away )
We strongly advise all guests to bring a car to make the most of their vacation, and if you’re flying in and need to hire one it’s very easy to do this in advance and collect your car at the airport.
There are many car hire firms in Orlando and although you don’t have to use a company who are based at the airport, they are very convenient. Either way, we advise our guests to book well in advance so they can get the vehicle they want at the best possible price.
Our home is located in the beautiful gated resort of Emerald Island, Kissimmee, Florida, 34747 and here are directions for how to find us :
Drive from your home towards Orlando and the main road through Orlando is Interstate Highway 4, known as the I4 (pronounced “i” 4, not to be confused with the number 14. Come off the I4 at junction 64B onto a main road called the 192, and continue West for about 3 miles. Turn left off of the 192 just past mile marker 5 into Formosa Garden Boulevard, and continue for about 400 yards until you reach a crossroads. Turn right into Funie Steed Road, and continue for about half a mile. The entrance to Emerald Island Resort is on the left.
Once you’ve booked with us, we’ll send you an email two weeks before your arrival containing everything else you’ll need (full check in details, Management Company contact details, etc) to make your arrival as easy as possible.
There are shuttle buses that travel between the main Theme parks and some guests may prefer this option.
There are also “hop on, hop off” buses called the iRide Trolley Service that operate on International drive and these can be a cheap option. International Drive is a very long road with many attractions and you might want to consider parking at one end of ID then letting the buses do the work!
