All vacation home owners love to tell you how close they are to the theme parks. As individual home owners, they love their properties (as do we) and in their enthusiasm they perhaps exaggerated a little. The truth is that they are all close to the Disney Theme Parks. The ones that are closest are generally in the 34747 zip code area (as is Sunset Lakes). Google Maps calculates the travel time from Sunset Lakes as between 13 and 20 minutes or (2.6 miles and 5.6 miles) depending on the specific theme park. To determine relative proximity of vacation homes to theme parks, check out the distance from the vacation community to the theme parks. We are confident that you will be satisfied with The Retreat and Sunset Lakes.
Toll roads, or turnpikes, as they are known in the US, are pervasive in the Orlando area. Relatively inexpensive (about $1.75 to get from the airport to The Retreat), they are a fact of life. Major toll booths are manned so exact change is not always necessary. Be advised, however, many of the minor off ramps are not manned, so it's a very good idea to always have change in the car. As an alternative, you can arrange to have a SunPass transponder with your car rental (car-hire) and you will be billed electronically. More Information on Toll Roads and SunPass can be found here. Here is an important safety notice.
Florida Laws are quite strict on this matter. You cannot transport an unsealed bottle/can of alcohol period. You may transport sealed bottles/cans of alcohol but it must be stored in the trunk (or boot) of the vehicle.
