For those wishing to have an event filled vacation there are plenty of activities in very close proximity to the Villa. Enjoy the fun and excitement of Disney, LegoLand, SeaWorld, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens while others prefer to play golf, see a show, shop, go to the beach or have an adventure of a lifetime. Whatever you choose to do I’m sure you will have a wonderful holiday.
In addition to those items contained within the golf, shopping and amusement/water parks pages there are some special events that are offered periodically throughout the year. We have attended all of the following events and believe they are worth mentioning for something a little different and memorable.
Star Wars Weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios takes place in the Spring, on weekends. No need for a separate ticket as your Park admission is all that is required. For those individuals who love Star Wars this is a lot of fun. Here you can interact with Star Wars characters andattend some special shows.
•Epcot International Food & Wine Festival can be attended in the Fall. A significant number of countries are represented which allows individuals to sample different food and drinks from around the world. See if you can try something from every represented country and get your ‘Passport’ stamped. While a favorite among adults this event can also be enjoyable and educational to children of all ages. Admission is part of your Epcot ticket however youwill be required to purchase the food and drinks at an additional cost. Make sure you pick up your ‘Passport’ upon entry so you can see which countries are represented and what they have to offer.
•Mickey’s No-So-Scary Halloween Party is offered on select nights in September thru October. This event requires a separate admission ticket and located in Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park.

The characters are dressed up and the parade is well worth watching. Trick or-Treating through the park is lots of fun and highly recommended.
