The resort itself is a sprawling 2300 acres of rolling fairways, greenery and water features spread across 14 neighbourhood communities with 2 further communities being newly developed in the north east of the resort. Across such a large residential expanse, where you choose to stay within the resort becomes key and can make getting around easier dependent on your vacation plans.

This road is the main artery leading north to some of Orlando's other major attractions such as Sea World and Universal Orlando (formerly Universal Studios).
