Here's a few to check out:
Legends at Championsgate
Cagan Crossings
Victoria Park
Broadwater
Vinings at Westwood

I'd stay away from Sabal Palm and Legacy Dunes. Alexandria/Parc Vue are very nice, but insanely expensive (at least the last time I looked at apartments ... 6 years ago, so it may have changed)

I can vouch for Cagan Crossings. We've been here for 5 months and really love it! There are four sifferent neighborhoods within the complex so you can get rent for as cheap as $500/mo to over $1,000/mo depending on your budget

I was looking at Cagan but I was wondering about the laundry. I really would prefer to have a unit with my own machines. However that is almost 150.00 more per month. Have you had any experience with the community laundry rooms?

That's funny. My husband is the one that kept track of all of the lease info but we live in The Glen and have own machines. I'm pretty sure we aren't being charge extra...otherwise, I know my husband would probably not have agreed to it.

It will probably take you about 15 minutes to get to Disney, depending on where you are going. That's taking the backway from 192 to Animal Kingdom area, if you take 192 there it will probably take longer because of traffic.
I just moved out of Alexandria Parc-Vue about two months ago and it is CRAZY expensive, you are paying more for the location than anything else.

Currently living at Legacy Dunes and have no complaints so far, but only have been here for two months. It all depends on who you rent from here though, the people that own the apartment can either keep the place amazing or have it be just a way for them to get extra money. [The people at Legacy Dunes do not rent out their apartments, they are technically like vacation condos so they really have no control on how the inside of the apartments look]. The people I'm renting from kept the place like new, and the rent is amazing compared to Parc Vue.
I was paying 975 at Parc Vue for a two bedroom, now paying 650 for a one bedroom at Legacy Dunes. Parc Vue was going to raise the rent to 1075 for the two bedroom, which is crazy since like I said other than the location its nothing to go crazy over.
I have also lived at Village at Towncenter in Davenport. Loved the apartment and the location, about 15 minutes to work. I would also recommend looking there.

Thanks so much! Do any of those include utlities or are those extra? Do you find the utilities expensive living in a one bedroom?

Water is the only thing included at my current apartment. Electric can be anywhere between $70 to $90 depending on the month, weather, etc. So not too expensive.

Legacy Dunes and Village at Towncenter have washer and dryers in the apartments, which is AMAZING, and they do not charge extra. [some places will add on like $70 a month to have them]
No matter where you go, I recommend finding a place that has a washer and dryer in the apartment and that doesn't charge for it. It is a lifesaver, I never realized how big of a deal it was until I had to go to the community laundry facilities for a year and that is just a pain.

Really? 2E are in the process of trying to find a third roommate for Parc View and its one of the cheapest we have found. 1175 for a 3br. If anyone is interested as I said we are looking for a third...
