Windsor Hills or Formosa Gardens?

Windsor Hills or Formosa Gardens? Whenever doing comparisons of different resorts it always depends on what you are looking for. Both are really nice but provide very different experiences. If you want to have your next Disney vacation in a resort community then Windsor Hills is the place you want to be. If you are looking for a place to stay, will not take advantage of the resort amenities or are looking for a larger house with more space between the houses then Formosa Gardens would be the right choice for you.

Full disclosure: Although my opinion may be a bit biased because our vacation rental is in Windsor Hills, I’m going to do my best to make a fair a comparison of what each resort offers and lacks. After all, it’s in our best interest to make sure our guests choose Windsor Hills because it’s the right fit for them. We purchased in Windsor Hills after looking at all the communities in the area. We also rent out our vacation home for others to enjoy, so this article will be biased toward Windsor Hills. Please also keep in mind that when we were looking for a vacation house to buy we were making the same evaluations that you’re making for a vacation and likely using the same criteria, so the fact we chose Windsor Hills should tell you something.

The Houses

When comparing the types of houses found in both communities, Windsor Hills homes are newer and go up to 6 bedrooms. If you need to have a larger house then Formosa Gardens may be the community that would fit your needs. Although houses like ours do also offer you the option of using a pull out couch, sleeping up to a total of 14 people in our 6 bedroom house.

The houses in Windsor Hills are newer, Windsor Hills was built in 2005 (our vacation rental was built in 2006)

The houses in Formosa Gardens are more spaced out from each other. Since Formosa Gardens is more like a long term living community the houses are more spaced out.

Windsor Hills was designed for vacations so the houses are closed together. Although our house does have houses on either side of it the way the pool decks are laid out you don’t feel like your neighbors are all that close. We also have privacy bushes installed around our pool to give it a more private feel.

Which Is Better? Windsor Hills or Formosa Gardens?

Which is better Windsor Hills or Formosa Gardens? When trying to compare communities, in the end, of course, which is better always depends on what you are looking for.

If you are looking for a community that feels more like you are living in Florida with a bit more space between the houses and you are not interested in amenities then Formosa Gardens would be a better choice for you.

However, if you’re looking for a resort that makes you feel like you are in a resort and not a residential development or if resort amenities are a factor in your choice then Windsor Hills would be the right choice.

Both Formosa Gardens and Windsor Hills are pretty close to each other, but if you want to be as close as possible to Disney then Windsor Hills would be the choice for you.
