The Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort has so many amazing and popular attractions so it is easy to miss a few. From Space Mountain to Cinderella’s Castle you just might miss something that is delightful. Well here’s a hidden Gem… Tom Sawyer Island. Located across from Splash Mountain you’ll find this attraction, but you’ll have to take a log raft to get here. Usually a short wait, so it’s totally worth it. Also, a great spot if you need a break from the crowds. When you arrive at Tom’s Landing you can embark on a self-guided expedition into the heart of early America. Walk around dusty dirt trails with sycamore and oak trees and creaky suspension bridges. Navigate narrow passages amid secret mined caves and uncover an age-old fort. The caves were my personal favorite. You’ll basically be able to follow in the pioneering footsteps of the frontier’s early settlers, during an era when Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer reflected an America coming into its own. After some time on the island you’ll actually feel like you’re in a National Park. It’s a very unique experience in the Walt Disney World Resort and definitely worth the visit, especially if your family packed your own lunches. It’s a perfect place for a picnic! Isn’t it time you visited the Magic kingdom!? Go to our website GlobalResortHomes.com or call an agent at (888) 426-0472 to book your next trip with us!
It doesn’t matter how many times I visit the Magic Kingdom, stopping by the Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin is a must for me with my family! This attraction is located in Tomorrowland so just head towards the right after you take a stroll down Main Street USA. In the attraction you will shoot lasers to defeat the evil Zurg in this game that puts you in the center of a thrilling space battle adventure. And it’s super fun to say the least! You also have full control over your space buggy. It rotates all the way around. This a great way to have some great competitive fun with your family or friends. With each ‘Z’ insignia you hit, you’re rewarded with beeping sounds, flashing lights and points. The more targets you blast, the more points you’ll receive. As expected, the harder targets are worth more points. Isn’t it time you took a break and visited the Magic kingdom!?

When I am planning my vacations, I love to ditch the tourist spots for a few local gems that make you feel a part of the community. In Florida, the Historic District of Winter Garden will do just that! Located a few miles from the parks and close to Global’s vacation homes, you will want to make this spot a to-do on your list.
Downtown Winter Garden is filled with locally owned shops and restaurants that make it the perfect place to visit. We have a few recommendations for you to try when visiting! First, shop in the many locally owned businesses downtown. Find the perfect decor for your house at Adjectives. Go grab a coffee or tea at Axum or try the Winter Garden Pizza Company for some lunch. After that, let the kids run around in the fountain downtown. One of our favorites is the Chef’s Table. Sample all different kinds of tapas here and pair them with a fantastic wine or beer.
If you’re looking for a great dinner, look no further than Plant Street Market. This open air market features local vendors that offer food, drinks and more. Grab an ice cold beer at Crooked Can Brewing Company and pair it with a gourmet burger from Five Thymes Five. You can also grab a roll of sushi from Jodo sushi- one of our favorites.
