Although we would recommend renting a car, there are many who do not want to or cannot drive. Getting to and from Legacy Dunes/Disney World and other travel in the area will require you to use a taxi or the LYNX Bus System. Other transportation services such as chauffeur driven limousines, vans, town cars, mini-buses and motor coaches are also available to shuttle you around. Orlando probably has the best taxi system in the USA and I have never heard of people getting ripped off as is common in places like New York. But in most of the southern USA you do not hail a cab. You must phone it in or have a previous arrangement. You will not see taxis cruising around looking for fares. One company owns most of the cabs and the drivers rent by the day or week. The same company runs most of the Disney transportation. You can also call them and ask for an estimated charge. All taxis are computerized and If you make a complaint the driver is immediately taken off the computer and cannot work. Florida region. Most people come for the theme parks. Visit Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphins. You could play golf nearby. There is a wide choice of golf courses, including a Nick Faldo course or visit nature reserves.

About Mary Jacobs

Mum who likes the snow. Two sons who were teenagers

when we purchased the chalet. Pamporovo is an excellent place to learn and kind in the pocket. We also love the sunshine and the theme parks and things to do around Orlando! Especially when the weather in

the UK is not so great! Winter sun! Discovery Cove - swim with the dolphins!

Mary Jacobs purchased this condo in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh, we had great fun, as usual. They like to skate down this little downhill street inside Legacy Dunes, play tennis - double against me and Ana, workout in the gym, play soccer and football in a green field on the back of the condo.

Along with all this activities, we still had great times at a skate park located at Lakeland. (30 minutes from Legacy Dunes). We went there many times and old Daddy got courageous and also skated with the big boys, as Mother took pictures and act as a videographer.

Can not stay without mentioning the races that we went through at Orlando Grand Prix. Awesome!

Everything great with a pleasant view from the apartment to the lake.

Amazing pool - apparently they had a solar heater installed earlier this year - the temp was perfect for us. Quiet and not too busy but next to all the restaurants and entertainment we needed. 5 minutes from Disney. Way better than a hotel - having the kids in their own bedrooms means we get some privacy and much better sleep. TV in every room was a cool bonus. The kids loved the basketball courts, the tennis court, even tried beach volleyball. Two pools. But we used the tropical one - which has a beach-style entry, splash pad for the little kids (mine are too big for that) lots of shady and sunny spots to lounge.

— Gary, 11 Jun 2014

Super trip. Everything is within 10 - 15 minutes drive. Legacy Dunes itself is a superb place to stay and we made good use of tropical swimming pool/tennis courts/volleyball/ clubhouse and fitness center. Our condo was a 2 bed/2 bath condo and clean. A definite home from home with everything we needed.

Clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a fortnight here 22/6/17 - 6/7/17.

The condo is clean, down the mattress looking brand new in the master bedroom.

Kitchen had lots of pots and pans with a stove top kettle, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, oven and dishwasher.

The AC worked well and all rooms have a ceiling fan.

Having a washer and dryer was great, we have always stayed in hotels until now and found having our own machines far better than trusting a hotel laundry service.

There are full size and mini ironing boards as well as an iron.

Just a suggestion - I would take some washing machine and dishwasher tablets with you. Buying them whilst there will mean you purchase far more than you need for the duration of your stay.

Legacy dunes itself is also well kept. The main pool is heated and very warm. The smaller pool which is not heated was hardly cool first thing during June and was plenty warm by the evening. We enjoyed the smaller pool most often as it was quieter, we had it to ourselves on most occasions.

The gym looked well equipped with cardio and weights although I only poked my head in - I was refraining from anything too strenuous during our holiday 😂

Overall we were completely satisfied with our stay at Legacy Dunes and would thoroughly recommend it. Mary was super helpful and always quick to respond to any questions.

Great condo. Nice secure location. Staff was bad

  • 4 of 5

Only complaint was the on site staff. When I arrived they said it wasn't ready yet and I didn't have early check in which I did. Then I asked if I could just come in and wait. She said ok but didn't open the gate. I had to call back and had to ask again to open gate. She did but was irritated. Toward middle of week called to get toilet paper and trash bags. Said they don't provide that. Those two things should be.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you did not get your early check in. I think in future I will set the day of arrival as the previous day to avoid this situation. As I understand it, the previous guests departed leaving a lot to do, but really it should or could have been done the previous day. And before being irritated with you, she should have checked the list. Normally there is enough toilet paper and trash bags to last the week but it is not replenished as a matter of course. This lady services a number of condos so I don't think mine can be different, but I will warn guests in future. Again, sorry for the inconvenience.
