GRAND OPENING OF BLUE TREE RESORT CELEBRATED WITH TRADITIONAL JAPANESE GROUND BLESSING CEREMONY

 ORLANDO, Fla., July 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Mr. Tsuneo Yoda, president of Aoki Realty Corporation of Florida, general partner of Blue Tree Orlando I, Ltd, hosted a grand opening of their first venture into the interval ownership vacation marketplace, Blue Tree Resort at Lake Buena Vista, Friday, July 23 during a 6 p.m. cocktail reception. The festivities included a traditional Japanese ground blessing ceremony in which ritual participants broke open the seal of a Saki barrel and drank a ceremonial toast.
 The 390-unit private resort village first opened in 1989 as a resort rental/apartment complex. In January 1992 Aoki Realty Corporation of Florida bought out its original partner and invited Westin Hotels & Resorts to manage the project as a time-share vacation resort. Westin Vacation Management was thereby formed and a dramatic refurbishing of the resort began in June 1992. "We are extremely pleased with the product we can offer our customers," said Resort Manager, Carolyn Hray. "We've taken an ideal location, packaged it with the standard of quality for which the Westin name is famous, and priced it all at rate that is hard to beat."
 During the process of selling the units as time-shares, which is being handled by Midlan International Resort Realty Inc., the resort will offer condominium rentals. A three-night minimum stay is required. Known worldwide for its luxury resort hotels, Westin also operates the nearby Walt Disney World Swan hotel at EPCOT Resorts.
 Services include mid-week housekeeping and linen change, daily towel service, 24-hour reservation and check-in desk, 24-hour switchboard, 24-hour security, voice-mail, and pre-arrival grocery shopping. Walt Disney World resort is one mile away and round-trip transportation to the theme parks is available.
 There are a total of four heated swimming pools, two lighted tennis courts (one of which converts to a regulation basketball court), volleyball court, shuffleboard, a series of putting greens, children's playground, game room with a regulation-sized pool table, and exercise facility.
 Blue Tree Resort is owned by the Blue Tree Orlando I, Ltd partnership, Aoki Realty Corporation of Florida, general partner, and operated by Westin Vacation Management Corporation. Time-share sales and marketing services are contracted through Midlan International Resort Realty Inc. of Sarasota, Fla. Exchange services provided by Interval International.
