Where to Stay During Your Orlando Vacation

Orlando has several distinct areas where visitors can look for a place to stay after a long and adventurous day of tripping to the many theme parks and recreational spots. It can be quite a confusing task to carry out, so here are some ideas that may help you choose the best place that will suit your vacation needs (and budget) during your stay in the family entertainment capital of the world.

South of Disney World (Highway 192 – Kissimmee)

Highway 192 has been a well-known destination for many tourists visiting Orlando. With its numerous restaurants, bed & breakfasts, golf courses, and family attractions, many vacationers consider this area an excellent one for finding hotels and lodging. Hotel prices here are less expensive when compared to hotels in the other areas.

North of Disney World

This is also called the Lake Buena Vista area, which is the newest spot to look for places to stay in Orlando. The hotels built in this region were put up in the early 1990’s and are mostly associated with the national hotel chains. The Lake Buena Vista area hosts great shopping and dining only a few miles away from each other.

Universal Studios Florida Area

There are also some good options that can be considered in this area, but not as much as there is in other areas of Orlando County. Only a few hotels can be found in this area and there is not much competition going on between them, so the prices are generally not as competivie, but still budget friendly.

Downtown Orlando

An Orlando vacation means visiting the theme parks and beautiful attractions that this region has to offer. Most likely, you will not enjoy the traffic hassles of long trips from downtown to the theme parks – not to mention the time that you will be wasting traveling thirty minutes or more to and from Disney World each day. If your Orlando vacation isn’t theme park centric, then the downtown Orlando area is a good choice.

Orlando Convention Center Area

Only a few minutes from SeaWorld, this area can be a good choice for those who will be going primarily to that park. However, the prices here are a little more expensive while the amenities offered by the hotels are mostly geared for business travelers than for families. This area is a natural choice for those combining business with a vacation.

SeaWorld (International Drive) Area

This is a favorite area to stay when vacationing with children. The reason is due to the number of villa resorts in the area. For the same price as a nice hotel room, you can have a two bedroom villa with full kitchen, whirlpool bath, living room and screened veranda. These resorts have lakes, pools, activity centers and other amenities that children (and adults) love. You will especially appreciate these resorts if you have some planned non-park days.

Orlando offers a large variety of different options for lodging. By reviewing the different choices described in this article, you will be well on your way to making the right decision for a great Orlando vacation.
