Why renting an Orlando vacation rentals villa has more advantages than staying on a Disney World property

There is no doubt about it the Walt Disney World resorts are amazing you will be surrounded by magic at each different resorts themes. Thousands of people stay here every year but also thousands of people chose to use a Vacation homes in Orlando to stay off site. Staying at Walt Disney World property isn’t for everyone as many people just want their own space, and not only will the overall price end up cheaper but you’ll be more prone to find restaurants or fun things to do outside of Disney World during your trip. Here are some reasons why they choose to look at Orlando vacation rentals

Price: Orlando vacation rentals v Disney property

 The main reason that people stay off property is because it costs less than staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. If you’re hoping to spend as little as possible on your vacation, you should look into staying off property. There are many nice Vacation homes in Orlando that cost the same or even less than a Value Resort. You might be able to get a villa for less than you would pay for the smallest Disney room in the worst location. If you want to save as much money as possible, staying off property might be the best idea. The best way to enjoy a Disney World vacation and save money is to not make it your entire trip. Orlando is a fascinating place to visit with cheap and free fun activities outside of Disney World. There are a few great beaches in Orlando to enjoy the beautiful weather. The museum and zoo in the area are very affordable and fun for travellers of all ages. An ideal Disney World trip would see several of the days with free fun outside of the Disney parks. You can feel that you can take advantage of all these things if you’re not staying on site at Walt Disney rather than feeling you need to get your full money’s worth, and instead stay in an Orlando vacation rentals where you can come and go at your leisure.

 Location of Vacation homes in Orlando V Disney Property

 The location of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels is not convenient for everyone, especially if you plan to visit more than just Disney while you’re in the Orlando area. There is so much more to see and do! You might not want to stay on Disney property if you plan to hit Universal Orlando Resort one day, spend the next one at Cocoa Beach, and then take a third day to explore some of the options on International Drive such as the Orlando Eye as you will not have time to take full advantage of all the facilities you are paying for. This is where Orlando vacation rentals have a big advantage as you can chose to have some facilities to use on the resort or not, if you feel you won’t use them why would you want to pay for them?


On a vacation you will want to spread out and relax. Some of the rooms at Walt Disney World are a lot smaller than you might expect them to be. This is especially true at the Value Resorts.  If your idea of a fun vacation doesn’t include a small hotel room, staying off property might be a good choice. If you really want to have a lot of space, consider renting a Vacation homes in Orlando for the duration of your trip. You can rent anything from a two-bedroom condo to a large home with six bedrooms or more and these homes have full kitchens and laundry facilities and most have a private pool and many more extras to give your vacation a home from home feeling.


There is no doubt that the Deluxe Walt Disney World Resorts are luxurious but they aren’t the only five star Orlando vacation rentals. If you want to spend part of your vacation still surrounded by luxury but with a cheaper price option then staying off property might be the way to go. You will find spas, fantastic pools with mini water parks, dining places, theatres and more on many upmarket resorts staying in a Vacation homes in Orlando. You’ll be able to hit the theme parks during the day, and then really relax when you return to your villa at night.


One lesser-known fact about Disney World is that you are allowed to bring in your own food. Light foods that don’t require heating are permitted into the parks. This allows you the option to easily save money when it comes a quick bite in the day. Bring sandwiches and snacks instead that you have prepared in your villa kitchen instead of paying for the overpriced food at the restaurants in Disney World. Families staying in a Vacation homes in Orlando have a huge advantage here as you can prepare food that you know your family will like and eat and don’t have to waste money on expensive things they may not!

Leave Disney Behind

Believe it or not, some people do not want to have Disney all around them 24 hours a day. They think that there can be too much pixie dust and magic. If you want to calm things down a bit and stop looking for Hidden Mickeys for a little while, you might want to consider staying off property in an Orlando vacation rentals.
