Come and see the Magic of Cirque Du Soleil!


If you have ever been to Disney Springs West Side (formerly known as Downtown Disney), then you have seen the giant yet mysterious white tent that is unmissable. Poking out from the rather subdued background, this white tent is home to Cirque Du Soleil which boasts acts like you have never seen. The magic of Cirque Du Soleil is set to extinguish coming this December so now is the time to book your flight to Florida and your tickets to the event!

Started in 1998, this show has been around since many of the local Floridians can remember. The custom built stage was made just for the athletes and performers who take the stage every night. With 10 shows a week, 1,500 visitors per show and 67 performers, Cirque Du Soleil is something you will not want to miss.

The show includes many acts that are highly technical and professional. For example, you will see Aerial Bamboo where a performer launches them self sky high only to impress you more and more. The flying trapeze will have you holding your breath as the performers jump over the stage and audience. The trampoline (a personal favorite) is a high energy performance where the performers do all kinds of flips, jumps and tricks.

This December, Cirque Du Soleil will take its final bow on December 31st, 2017 at the Disney Springs location. For you, this means you must visit central Florida to see this show before the lights on the stage go out. When you’re ready to see the show, be sure to book your stay with Global Resort Homes!

Your new favorite Disney restaurants!

Disney Springs – D-Luxe Burger – Southern Classic & Cluck Burger

Disney is constantly changing the way it works. New shops, new rides and new restaurants seem to pop up everyday. This summer has been no different with new food spots popping up here and there. Our favorite restaurants happen to be at Disney Springs and Disney’s Boardwalk- no entry fee! We’ve tried a few and are here to tell you what we think!

The newly renovated Flying Fish Cafe at Disney’s boardwalk is absolute perfection. The seafood selection will leave you satisfied with anything from blue crab Bisque to Hokkaido scallops. The ambiance is warm and inviting, as is anything with Disney. Located at The Boardwalk, you do not have to be a guest to eat here and can make reservations anytime. After that, grab something sweet at Ample Hills Creamery. This New York based company provides the freshest, tastiest combos of your favorite treats. Mint patty and salted caramel are just a few!

More of our favorite restaurants are located at Disney Springs, just a few miles from Flying Fish and Ample Hills. With more of a laid back vibe, the springs provides anything from a cupcake machine to 5-star dining. One of our favorite casual places to try is the D’Luxe Burger. This quick-stop burger shop will leave you wanting more and more. Their specialty is the burger but they do have dairy free and vegetarian options too. One place we’re looking forward to opening is “The Edison” restaurant. An upscale and modern dining experience where you are encouraged to dress “innovative and sophisticated” will round out the plethora of options at Disney Springs. Visit today and book with Global Resort Homes!

The new Disney Springs restaurant is almost complete!

Soon to open in Disney Springs is the Edison Lounge which will bring the 1920’s era right to you! This newly themed restaurant is one that will encompass all of what Disney has to offer. From incredible theming to world-class food, there is nothing better.

To begin, this restaurant will take you through various rooms, each having their very own theme. The Patent Office, The Tesla Lounge, The Radio Room, and a Waterfront Patio are just a few that guests will be seated in. The rooms are not even the best part of the restaurant. The classic american fare will be one to rave about and keep you coming back time and time again. There will also be signature cocktails for you to choose from.

On your list of activities, add visiting Disney Springs. Opening late 2017, The Edison will give you a blast from the past.
