    Anyone heard of Posner Park?
    Apparently it is just off junction 55 on the I4 and it is a new shopping development.
    Would like to know which shops are already open and what others are planning on moving there.

    We went to the Loop for the first time earlier this year and I liked that area.

    Posner Park is opposite our villa estate and so we have been watching the development stages on our visits.
    Target
    JCPennys
    Petsworld
    Bookstore
    There are quite a few small shops built but as of April only Starbucks was due to open shortly

    We are 20 mins from outskirts of Disney World so depends on which park you wish to attend, there is a new toll road(50c) that you can now use and has cut the time down from what it used to be, but also can depend on time of day you want to go to the parks aswell. We recomend that you aim to be in the park after 9.00 as you miss the big queues to get in, more so at security check point. Not too bad if you arnt carrying any bags but then size of Micks hand bag could take a lot longer.
    If we are going to a park then we have a little extra time in bed as bound to have been a late night by the pool :alc: and then go to the local restraunts near the villa and have a good breckies and aim to head off to the parks about 0900.

    No, I really don't know much about it! It's south of where I usually go. I've gone by and seen the construction, but haven't paid much attention.

    It's more for the residents of the southen end of Polk county, not that it's exclusive, but it's not really convenient to Disney unless you have your own car.

    You'll have to visit Isafari and give us a full report! You too Malcom!

    Is this Posner Park anywhere near The Reserve off Lake Wilson Road?

    Adrian saw the word "bookstore" and his eyes got all shiny and bright. :lol:

    It will be further south, but certainly not all that far off, Dawn. :yes:

    There is a lovely Barnes and Noble bookstore at Dr. Phillips too. That would be closer to DTD, than Posner.
