Smile NOT close!

We visited Solivita last yr...by EVERYONE'S account you are at least 45 minutes (good weather/no traffic) from DisneyWorld, we did east coast from there in 75 min. The problem is the limited access roads...only one from Solivita. For commuting to work at Disney, it would be difficult, though some do it. For just visiting the parks, an hour each way is what to plan on. Beautiful community though & great people & currently, GREAT buys!! For us, sadly, too far from the Mouse.

Del Webb is re-opening their Davenport location in early summer (renamed DEL WEBB ORLANDO). They had some problems as La Cresta & Pulte is the builder so investigate & then investigate again...Still, we LOVED this community when we visited & it is only 15 min from Mickey's house!

Next door to that is Ridgewood Lakes (& Golf Club)...Another very nice but smaller community.

Personally, I can't believe there aren't more 55+ communities near WDW...afterall, we are the original Mouseketeers!!

I've found 4 that I like:
1) High Vista (part of Ridgewood Lakes, just south of I-4 on Hwy 27)
smaller community but seems well kept
2) Kings Ridge, Clermont
Good location, but some strange deal on the land, it's leased for 99 years
Thanks
Has anyone else heard about kings ridge land being leased for 99 years ? We are looking around this area for my mom is this something normally done for a 55 plus community?

No, that is news to me. And yes, there are 55+ communities where land is owned.

You might do a search in this Orlando forum. This thread is pretty old...there should be more lots more info for you.

Not sure where you are getting that info, but it's not accurate. There is no land lease in Kings Ridge.

3) The Plantation, Leesburg
Getting a bit lonely out here, but seems a nice "golf cart" community
4) The Villages
Again, I like the "golf cart" concept, but this is pretty congested.

Any thoughts on these or others? Thanks[/QUOT

It was the 1 st post on this thread...it kind of scared me since next month my mom has big hopes on planning to buying a home there.
