Villa Location
Highlands Reserve is located just to the west of Disney with shops, restaurants, supermarkets and bars all within a 5 minute drive. In early 2004 a brand new clubhouse with restaurant, bar/lounge, gym and a 4500 sq ft tropical pool complex with waterslides and children's play area will open. A Publix supermarket is just a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive away.

Fastest Route from Orlando International Airport
The best way we have found with the least amount of traffic is down the Central Florida Greeneway (Toll 417).  It's a Toll Road, but worth every penny, especially after a long flight.  From Orlando International (less than $5 in tolls) head for the 417 SOUTH.  From Sanford International, also head for the 417 SOUTH (less than $10 in tolls).  Leave the 417 toll road at exit 2 signposted Celebration Avenue to 192, take a right after toll booth and left at T junction onto the US 192 West.  Drive along the US 192 until you reach the US27 South - stay in left lane signposted Haines City.  Highlands Reserve entrance is well lit along the US27 on the right hand side, about 1-1/2 miles after you joined the US27 - next right after the traffic lights at Publix.  Directions to your villa will be given to you prior to your arrival.

Petrol
There are plenty of petrol stations near Highlands Reserve, but the closest is the Citgo station at the entrance to Polo Park, approx 1 mile north on US27 on right.

Supermarkets
The nearest Publix supermarket is located at Berry Town Center (adjacent to the entrance to Highlands Reserve, a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk... often a good idea to work off the previous days excesses !) and offers good value & quality, particularly for bread and bakery items, fresh fruit and veg and for their meat and fish counters, allowing you to purchase everything you need for those poolside barbecues. A Wal-Mart Super Center is located 3.5 miles north on the US 27 at Cagans Crossing, offering excellent value for money shopping.

Pharmacies
Walgreen's 24hr Drive Thru Pharmacies are located 3 miles south on the US 27, on the east bound carriageway of the US192 opposite the Orange Lake Resort - about 4 miles from Highlands Reserve.  You will also find a CVS pharmacy about 1 mile on US27 north of the US192.
