Disney’s Boardwalk Villas

boardwalk-villas-disney-fireworksLocated in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Disney’s Boardwalk Villas puts the wonderful world of magic right at your front door. Epcot, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean are all at your disposal. There is a plethora of activities outside of the rides and adventure as well, so don’t limit yourself to staying in the park!

Adjacent to many of Disney’s resorts you can find fantastic playgrounds, a great way for the kids to burn off that excess energy. Swings, slides, tunnels, and interactive jungle gyms are a great way to get the kids moving and give the parents a few minutes to relax. The playgrounds are for children 2 – 12 years of age, and do require adult supervision.

Disney's Boardwalk Villas is within walking distance of Epcot.

The Ferris W. Eahlers Community Hall at the resort is a great place to visit for some family fun. The hall offers free board games, pool, fooseball, air hockey, and many other activities the whole family can enjoy. There are also DVDs to rent, and books you can check out in case it’s one of those “rainy days.”

Take in a campfire beachside or on one of the many decks and patios. A lot of the resorts at Disney will offer nightly campfires, so grab your marshmallows. Scary stories are told, laughs are shared, a fun time for the whole family. There is no better way to enjoy the wonderful Florida night than crowding around a fire and making new friends.

boardwalk-villas-disney-magic-kingdomAfter you enjoy your campfire, check out a “Movie Under the Stars.” Many of Disney’s resorts offer these showings nightly. Curl up under the night sky and enjoy a Disney classic. The movies can be seen, depending on location, beachside, poolside, or surrounded by Florida woodlands!

Buying a Disney’s Boardwalk Villas timeshare resale is a great way to enjoy these activities, as well as the park and surrounding Florida attractions year after year. Contact our knowledgeable agents at Premier Timeshare Resale for information on how you can save thousands buying resale.

How long has it been since you’ve spent a romantic evening on the ocean-side? Or since you’ve indulged in local culture for an ethnic getaway? Or breathed deeply on the manicured green of a world-renown golf course?

The answer probably is: too long!

At Disney’s Old Key West Resort, you’ll find all of these amenities and more right outside your villa’s doorstep. Still curious about exactly what the Keys can offer you on your bodacious getaway? Here are some of the highlights from this premier Disney resort.

disney-mickey-minnie-balloons1. The Waterworks

Of course, Disney is going to make sure you have the best on-resort water amenities possible. This resort comes with a 125-foot water slide through a giant sand castle that lets out into a glassy blue pool. A sand beach surrounds the resort’s 149,600-gallon feature pool complete with decorative dolphins that spout water at excited swimmers.

If you are looking for some peace and quiet on your trip, the resort has three all-ages pools, each with a whirlpool spa, that offer quiet areas for complete relaxation. Complete the day in the dry sauna located inside the pool deck’s lighthouse.

disney-tigger-kite2. Eat Like a Local

Olivia Farnsworth was a long-time local inhabiting a small cottage along the Turtle Krawl, just upwind of the strip. This culinary craftswoman would invite locals and travelers alike into her kitchen for island-inspired grub.

Eventually, Olivia opened Olivia’s Cafe, which has become a popular eatery for everyone in town. It’s largely recognized as a must-visit spot by locals and visitors who want a taste of the native color the Florida Keys offer.

3. Rockin’ Recreation

Disney’s Old Key West Resort is full of fun recreation for the whole family to enjoy.

Next to the main pool you’ll find the “Recreation, Exercise, Swimming and Tennis” complex, which offers state-of-the-art exercise equipment and a relaxing sauna for your rejuvenating pleasure.

walt-disney-world-entranceThe resort also sponsors Old Key West campfire activities, movies under the stars, bike rentals, fishing, golfing and two game rooms for the kids to play in.

Although you may never want to leave the resort, all of this fun is just a boat ride away from Downtown Disney, where your family can sing, dance and celebrate with all of your favorite Disney characters!

Don’t go too long without pampering yourself and your family. Next time someone asks when the last time you spent a romantic evening on the ocean was, you’ll say “last week!”

Tennessee continues: DOLLYWOOD & Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Even if visiting theme parks isn’t your thing, there’s a southern charm about this one that is undeniably appealing. 
 
tennesee-timeshare-resales

Our family spent an afternoon at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where even our three-year-old could ride real rollercoasters and enjoy the Bluegrass and Barbeque festival that lasts over three weeks, celebrating the commencement of summer.

 

The staff were friendly and helpful, and Dollywood was as immaculate as a Disney park. And even after Memorial Day weekend: short lines and fast access to rides both large and small.  tennessee-timeshare-resales

tennessee-timeshare-resalesPlus, the park is smaller in scale than some of the more daunting theme parks, so it was walkable, even for the three-year-old, who would gather steam and start dancing every time we passed a bandstand emanating folky music complete with fiddles and banjos.

 

Accommodations nearby are plentiful, too, with timeshares in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg nearby. The Great Smoky Mountains (and their national park namesake) are nearby too, offering a serene retreat from the tourism and theme park atmosphere of the cities.

 

Camping, with lawn games and tents is a great way to enjoy being in nature and away from the hubbub.
 

tennessee-timeshare-resales

But the Wyndham Smoky Mountains timeshare resale is, too. Great for just driving through, or getting out and enjoying a dip in the rivers that run through the national park, Great Smoky Mountains is free to visitors and open year round.tennessee-timeshare-resales

 

We hopped on the Blue Ridge Parkway, too, on the north side of the national park, and enjoyed winding roads, being inside clouds…

Weekend Getaways III: Miami, Key West, Palm Beaches and Naples

Miami, our favorite warm coastal city, is a cultural extravaganza of food, entertainment and fashion. It’s been called the cleanest city, and the richest. Miami is nicknamed the “Capital of Latin America” is the second-largest U.S. city (after El Paso, Texas) with a Spanish-speaking majority, and the largest city with a Cuban-American plurality. Where beach, sand, sun, and commerce connect, Miami offers residents a host of experiences and activities. A vacation destination in and of itself, Miami offers several reputable timeshare properties for sun-and-beach lovers, with luxury accommodations at Hilton and Marriott in addition to more affordably priced properties like the Clarion Suites Crystal Beach and Health Club. But if you want to get away from Miami for the weekend, try these options:

 

Key West. As the southernmost point in the continental United States, Key West offers a charming historic Old Town whose compact nature makes it easy to navigate among our recommended weekend escape spots on foot or by bicycle. With three Key West Hyatt timeshare resorts from which to explore the town’s culinary treats, sailing adventures or diving opportunities, Key West’s attraction is clear. Consider the nearby Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park offering snorkeling and daily guided tours of the park and the historic fortress utilized in the Civil and Spanish American Wars.

 

For an artsy weekend with vintage flair that’s not overly stuffy, Fodor’s recommends Palm Beaches.  A romantic getaway, Palm Beaches has a well-heeled history that comes a rich cultural legacy that lends itself to world-class museums. Combine the Norton Museum of Art with the laid back flow at Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar and you’ll soon be reveling in the offerings of the area. This itinerary’s pairings of rich cultural experiences and the depth of artistic expression found in the nearby gardens and museums is a perfect balance for the weekend.

 

Anchored by the Botanical Garden, East Naples is blossoming into a foodie destination alongside Naples’ reputation as a resort location. Older Naples timeshare resale resorts make Naples an affordable destination that retains its attractiveness in dining, shopping, and daytime activities like the Dolphin Explorer, a three-hour eco-tour that observes Southwest Florida’s dolphin population and makes a beachcombing stop on one of the area’s unspoiled barrier islands.

 

Florida remains a top vacation destination, and a hot market for Miami timeshare resales, as well as Disney timeshare resales, and properties in the Keys. Contact PTR today for more information on buying or selling Florida timeshare resales.

 

 

Traveling, touring, timeshare destinations: California, South Carolina and Utah are Staff Picks

We write a lot about travel, about tourism, about vacations. We found this article (with lots of pretty photos!) we really like that makes the distinction between “traveler” and “tourist” unequivocally clear. We’ve done a lot of traveling, our folks at Premier Timeshare Resale. And by a lot, I mean in excess of twenty countries and all fifty states combined. We’ve traveled more than 25,000 miles this year alone, traipsing across our homeland’s natural landscapes, metropolitan cityscapes, and passing through foreign borders in every cardinal direction since January of 2013 just to go.

 

We do trains, cabs, boats, planes, trolleys and buses, mopeds and even a mule once or twice. But we also know that as important as getting there is where we lay our tired bodies at the end of the day. Tent, cabins, and fluffy four poster beds in luxury suites. In fact, some of the world’s best beds have been found in New York City, Las Vegas, and across Westin Properties in San Francisco, Savannah and Boston.

 

So maybe you’re a traveler with dancing feet, or maybe you like your several-star rated comfort resorts. Maybe both. Check out some of the favorite destinations and their timeshare resorts for resale—the Premier Timeshare Resale staff picks, below:

 

Park City, Utah. Yeah we love it here for the Marriott’s Mountainside, the Summit Watch, and the several fractional ownership properties available in a location that’s often overlooked as affordable, but is always sleek and sassy.

 

Hilton Head, South Carolina. It’s not just for the DC Democrats (or Republicans, for that matter)—it’s a fun-filled family destination that boasts sea breezes, one Disney and no less than eight Marriott Vacation Club timeshares. Heavenly.

 

Newport Beach, California. Sure, you may be more familiar with the O.C. or Arrested Development’s boardwalk banana stand, but it’s a high-class warm weather year round spot that claims ocean breezes and proximity to Los Angeles and Disneyland. Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas have been a featured hotspot in the past, and for good reason: they rock.

 

Days are still getting shorter, but our travel-longings longer. If you’re planning your vacation today, we want to hear about it! Inspire us all, and share your favorite timeshare resort or beach spot of 2013.
