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!

Learn more about Disney’s Old Key West Resort on their website or check out the amazing timeshare resale deals we have available right now.

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!”

Mother’s Day Musings: The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

mother-child-beachThis weekend my mom and I loaded up the car and headed north for Idaho Falls. Besides the joys of taking a mother-daughter road trip, we were going to visit a handful of grandparents and my brother, who recently moved there.

The weekend was spent among family, flowers and wine, each generation (four in one room!) performing duties of gratitude for their mother, sister, and other lovely ladies in each of our lives.

Mother’s Day is an interesting holiday. I comes from a long international history of celebrating mothers and has prevailed through times of turmoil, even the creator of America’s national day denouncing the holiday all together. Here are a few thoughts to hopefully keep you remembering the essence of Mother’s Day year-round.

grandma-grandaughters-benchMother’s Day History

Celebrating mothers extends back to ancient times, when Greeks and Romans held festivals to honor their mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. The tradition continued throughout Europe through a Christian festival held during Lent. But the Mother’s Day that we recognize today started in the early 20th century with Anna Jarvis.

Anna’s mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, began Mother’s Day Work Clubs in the late 1800s to teach women how to raise their children. The clubs later became a way unite families during and after the Civil War. After Ann’s death in 1905, Anna got the idea for a day that celebrated mothers and their sacrifices. Anna came to recognize that there was an unequal amount of national holidays that celebrate men, and began petitioning for Mother’s Day to become a nationally recognized holiday, which was granted by Woodrow Wilson in 1914.

Even before its presidential endorsement, Mother’s Day quickly became a popular holiday around the country. Of course, it didn’t take long for florists and card companies to take advantage of the need for Mother’s Day gifts and began avidly marketing Mother’s Day products. Outraged by the commercialization of Mother’s Day, Anna eventually denounced the holiday and spent her personal wealth on lawyers to get the holiday removed from the national calendar, but she never succeeded.

mother-pregnant-girlMother’s Day Traditions

Anna Jarvis’s original intent for Mother’s Day was for people to wear a single white carnation as a badge while taking the day to attend church and visit one’s mother. The idea of flowers as the perfect Mother’s Day gift has blossomed and today the industry makes over $2 billion from Mother’s Day alone and over 140 million cards get sent to mothers (interestingly there are only about 83 million mothers in the U.S.).

With such extreme numbers, it’s easy to see what Anna Jarvis was upset about. I certainly was guilty of spending money on multiple bouquets, cards and Mother’s Day knick knacks, but I think there’s more to this holiday than cold consumer habits.

In Ethiopia, families gather each fall to sing songs and indulge in a large feast as part of Antrosht, a multi-day celebration honoring motherhood. Even in the U.S., Mother’s Day has been used to do more than spend money. Coretta Scott King, wife of Martin Luther King Jr., used Mother’s Day in 1968 to host a march in support of underprivileged women and children. In the 1970s, women’s groups used the holiday to promote the need for equal rights and access to childcare.

Around the world and even throughout our own culture, Mother’s Day is clearly about more than a card and obligatory phone call (although, more phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year). I find myself passionately agreeing with Anna Jarvis’s initial motivations behind Mother’s Day: to give women a day in the national calendar, and to have a day to celebrate mothers and their sacrifices. Although Anna eventually felt that the holiday lost its original heart, I have a hard time agreeing.

flower-gift-childCelebrating Family

This weekend, I not only celebrated my mother, but my whole family. I dined with grandmas and grandpas, I talked with my great grandmother, I joked with my brother, I spoke with aunts and uncles, I learned about my cousins, I congratulated newly-mothering friends, I caught up with my dad and cuddled with my mom. It was a weekend devoted to appreciating family and celebrating the women that hold it together. Because, of course, mother’s don’t want it to just be about them, they want the day to be about the people they love and care for, a demonstration of the truly generous spirit of motherhood.

Although Mother’s Day has passed this year, we still have another chance to honor our parents and grandparents…for Father’s Day! If you’re looking for a way to truly honor your parents, think about buying them a timeshare resale. The gift of a vacation home says more than thank you for life, but thank you for the memories we have yet to create together. Bring the family together every year with a Park City timeshare in the idyllic Wasatch Mountains or relax on the beach with your family in a Florida timeshare. Our licensed timeshare agents can help you find the perfect gift that keeps on giving!

Marriott’s Harbour Lake Review

My husband and I stayed at Marriott’s Harbour Lake last fall and were very impressed. The resort is not quite as large as Marriott’s Grande Vista, but it’s ideal for families with children.

The rooms were well-appointed and seemed to have undergone a recent renovation. The two bedroom villa sleeps eight with a Master Bedroom, Guest Suite and two sofa beds. The kitchen is equipped with all the items one would need to prepare a meal in with the family. Being Orlando, this resort is also set alongside a beautiful lake, which makes for a nice backdrop for a family photo.

The resort is located just off International Drive making it very close to Sea World and just a short drive to Disney’s theme parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Dining options abound and you’re sure to find your favorite chain in this franchise haven.

The best thing about Marriott’s Harbor Lake in Orlando, Florida, is certainly the pools. On one side of the resort, there is giant pirate ship with planks to walk, slides to splash into the pool and of course water guns. Activities staff keep the children busy with all kinds of games and contests. We had the pleasure of watching the children go on a treasure hunt while we caught some rays poolside. The smiles on their faces and excitement in their eyes told me these were memories they won’t be forgetting.

As if the pirate ship isn’t enough, a second pool on property is surrounded by a giant water activities area, a waterslide into the pool and a miniature golf course. We saw kids and adults alike enjoying the water features. You can run under sprinklers or shoot giant water guns at one another from opposing towers. Don’t get caught not paying attention in the towers! Both are topped with a giant bucket and when it’s full it dumps a tidal wave of water over those lurking beneath.

disney world epcotThis resort definitely caters to the wee ones with a poolside snack shack that has all their favorite popsicles, smoothies and ice cream treats. If you’re coming to Orlando with children I highly recommend this resort. At Marriott’s Harbour Lake Resort, Mom and Dad can relax poolside and let the many activities wear the kids out. A day off from touring the nearby theme parks can be fun and relaxing for everyone.

Of the multiple Marriott Vacation Clubs in Orlando, this resort is one of the smallest but as they say, “Good things come in small packages.” When it comes to Marriott’s Harbour Lake Resort I’d have to agree.

If an annual trip to Orlando is something you’d like to cherish with your kids or grandkids then buying a Harbour Lake timeshare will ensure those memories are made year after year.

Orlando Timeshares: The Ultimate Family Vacation

Orlando-disney land

The Greater Orlando Metropolitan area is the third largest metro area in Florida with a population of over two million residents. Each year, more than 51 million tourists travel to Orlando, largely because the city has become “The Theme Park Capital of the World,” with Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. The Orlando International Airport has become the 13th busiest airport in the nation. With all this popularity, wouldn’t you rather buy an Orlando timeshare resale than be fighting to get accommodations?

Orlando Timeshares: Activities & Leisure 

Orlando has been providing family fun for years. The Travel Channel lists the city’s top attractions as Walt Disney World, which encompasses several theme parks, Sea World, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. 

Orland houses other attractions besides theme parks though, including plenty of beaches within an hour’s drive, as well as several golf courses. In addition, there are numerous shopping venues, including the Florida Mall and a variety of local and chain restaurants.

Orlando Timeshares: An Enduring Location

 

Since Orlando features so many family-friendly attractions, it’s become one of the most popular vacation spots to repeatedly return to, especially during summer. Therefore, many families consider buying a timeshare resale as an affordable alternative to constantly hunting for hotel reservations. The cost of a timeshare is split between multiple timeshare owners, and this lets each new timeshare owner spend at least one week at their timeshare when it’s most convenient and at a much more affordable rate. 

In fact, Orlando offers more timeshare resorts than any other city in the United States, boasting more than 16,000 timeshare resorts in the area. Orlando timeshares will feature all the amenities of a first-class resort but with the privacy of having your own place. You’ll find gourmet kitchens to cook in, a private patio or balcony to watch the sunset and a sparkling outdoor pool. As most of these timeshares have been created with families in mind, some are located right near the theme parks, while others are further out closer to the water for recreational sports.

Orlando, Florida: Where Timeshares Flourish

While Orlando may be one of top family destinations, families don’t look forward to overcrowded hotels or overpriced rates, especially during the summer and the holidays when children are out of school. Orlando features several luxury 4-star resorts, which make the prices of hotel accommodations even higher, and many travelers don’t have money for the other option of renting a vacation home nearby. Therefore, buying an Orlando timeshare provides the best choices for families to explore the numerous attractions in the city.

The Orlando timeshare resorts are divided along several areas. Some are situated right along International Drive, with access to all the theme parks, while others are located downtown nearby the convention center. Other timeshares are located just slightly outside Orlando in Kissimmee or Lake Buena Vista but it’s still close to all the fun.

The plethora of attractions in Orlando makes buying a timeshare in Orlando a wise family vacation investment. Children of all ages will appreciate the creativity and animation at all of Walt Disney’s theme parks, while older children will enjoy seeing how TV shows and movies are created at Universal Studios. Teenagers will love sunbathing or learning how to surf at Cocoa Beach or even learning how to swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove. Parents will enjoy the local boutiques as well as the extensive shopping malls. In addition, Orlando also houses several golf courses, including the Bay Hill Club and Lodge, where the Arnold Palmer Invitational is held. Orlando is the perfect vacation spot to bring your multi-generational family from grandparents to toddlers and a timeshare will provide enough room for everyone to stay comfortably.

Orlando typically has two seasons, a warm and rainy season June through September, and a milder, drier season the rest of the year. With its warm temperatures, it’s obvious why people return to Orlando each year.

Premier Timeshare Resale has access to more than 50 brokers and an enormous list of interested buyers so they will be able to find a compatible match between a buyer and seller.

Timeshare Options

A Florida fractional ownership gives you the chance to buy several months or weeks of time in a timeshare. The price of the timeshare will be split between other people who will share the timeshare property. You will not own the whole property, but you will own a certain percentage of the property. This option gives you the opportunity to rent your timeshare to others when you are not using the property. Another benefit of the fractional timeshare ownership is that you are not responsible for all the maintenance and upkeep of the condo. If you were to buy the condo, you would have to be responsible for the entire maintenance cost, but the cost is split between the owners with fractional ownership.

Individuals can choose to buy timeshares in many locations in Florida. Orlando, Miami, Daytona, Key West and Kissimmee are just a few of the cities that offer timeshare deals.
