Local Facilites

  Cagans Crossing

Cagans Crossing is only 3 miles north on US27, at the 3rd traffic lights. It is just past the US192 turn off to Disney. The area offers a 24 hour Walmart and various other shops and food outlets.

  • Walmart - open 24 hours - with food section
  • US Post Office
  • Restaurants, bars and take-away food
    • Chili's
    • Taco Bell
    • KFC
    • Burger King
    • McDonald's
    • Hungry Howie's Pizza
    • Starbucks
    • Subway
    • Hurricane Bar & Wings
    • Sr Tequila
    • Gator's Dockside Bar & Grill
    • Devenney's Irish Pub

  Maingate West

  • Just 3 miles down the US192 (W Irlo Bronson Highway), between the junction with the 429 and Disney, is a 2 miles long heavily commercialised area called Maingate West.
  • Here there is a Super Target, another Publix supermarket, plus lots of restaurants to suit all tastes.
  • This area is a very convenient stopping-off point on the way to or from Disney.

  US27 South

  • Going south down the US27, at Ridgeview Plaza, there is a small shopping centre with Walgreens pharmacy, gas filling station and Beef O'Brady's restaurant.
  • Two miles further on is the junction of the US27 with Interstate I-4 (junction 55). Here you will find Cracker Barrel, Perkins, Bob Evans, Wendy's, Denny's, Waffle House, McDonald's, Burger King and several gas stations.
  • Posner Park: On the other side of the I-4, with various large stores such as JCPenney, Target, Best Buy, Staples, Ross Dress for Less, Dick's Sporting Goods, Dollar Tree, Payless Shoe, IMAX cinema (and more) with plenty of parking space.
  • On the left, just past Posner Park, is the Ovation Bistro & Bar and The Proper Pie Company

  Championsgate

  • Turning left at the traffic lights at Ridgeview Plaza leads to Championsgate, only 7 miles from Regal Palms.
  • There is yet another Publix supermarket, Chili's, Millers Ale House, Red Robin, Wendy's, McDonald's, two gas filling stations and other shops and banks.
  • There is also another convenient access to the Interstate I-4 here (junction 58).
  Benefits
  • All these facilities are within 10 minutes easy drive from Regal Palms. The US27 is a fast free-flowing dual carriageway with 3 lanes in each direction. The speed limit going north is 55mph and 60mph going south.
  • This contrasts quite sharply with the US192 in the Maingate West area, where there is not only more traffic but LOTS of traffic lights which are frustratingly slow to change. Some people choose to stay in that area, as it 'closer to the action'. It may be physically closer to some of the action, but every time you want to go anywhere you will be stuck in the traffic. Staying a little further away, at Regal Palms, avoids all the worst of the traffic and you could actually get where you are going more quickly, as well as it being more relaxing.
