High Point World Resort, located in Kissimmee, Fla., is an excellent option for families who are looking for a more homey place to stay while exploring Disney. If you’re looking for a sterile-as-a-doctors-office, daily-generic-continental-breakfast-type of resort, this is not the place for you! But if you’re looking to know what it means to feel home away from home, this is your huckleberry!
The High Point World Resort is a quiet, clean and family-friendly 108-room resort, located just one mile away from Walt Disney World Vacation Kingdom. The luxurious accommodations include one-bed, one-bath villas and two-bed, three-bath townhouses. Each room includes a master king bed, twin beds, cable TV, and a ceiling fan. Other options include a full kitchen, an in-room breakfast bar with stools, a queen sofa and screen porches.
When not creating magic at Disney, you can hang out at the resort and enjoy it’s lighted tennis court, gas barbecue and picnic areas, whirl pool, children’s playground, video library, game room and heated saltwater swimming pool!

A little off the beaten path, very quiet and surrounded by lush vegetation made for a quiet stay.A number of breakfast places and grocery stores around as well as gifts and point of interest. Short drive to Dysney attractions and Dysney mall. Good internet connection on the premises and friendly staff. Parking is not an issue, but the kitchen cupboards and kitchen towels need more maintenance since they were odours out of this world.I suggest to wash them thoroughly before use them.A definite must is a car (own or rented).45 minutes from Cocoa Beach and 1 hour and 57 minutes from Clearwater Beach. Millenia mall is 35 minutes away on highway I4 and traffic is half as bad as New York or Montreal. I think that all in all it is a good spot.Enjoy!

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at High Point in January of 2018. The Resort is only a ten min drive from Disney World. The resort has a great hot tub and pool area which we used daily. Tuesday's and Friday's are free coffee and donuts in the information center and Wednesday's at lunch they offer a free hot dog BBQ and ice cream for desert. The unit we stayed in was a one bedroom. It was a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. The resort is set back from the freeway so road noise is a non issue. We will be sure to stay again when we return to Kissimmee.
