Benefits of staying at a Disney Condo

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

In today’s sluggish economy, families are fighting to save as many dollars as they can, including their vacation budget. As a result, more families are opting to stay in Disney-area condos rather than on-site Disney resorts. While Disney World Resorts feature very appealing amenities, you can find plenty of condos in the Disney area that offer just as much luxury as Disney’s finest resorts.
Frugal families know the benefits of eating in, and when you stay in a Disney-area condo, you’ll have many grocery stores nearby to stock up on reasonably priced groceries and goods. If you compare the savings on food expenses along, you’ll realize the value of cooking in at a Disney World condo. At a Disney restaurant, you’ll have to pay premium prices, including the tip for your waiter, at every meal, including breakfast.
Conversely, if you stay off site and in a condo, you can prepare your own meals or stop by a local restaurant with much cheaper menus and options. As for the lodging rates, you’ll find Disney area condos with double the space of a Disney resort at half the rate of a comparable room. You can cut your lodging expenses by at least 50% when you stay at a Dinsey condo for rates as low as $70 per night.
In addition to the financial benefits of staying at a condo, you’ll also appreciate the privacy offered by a condo.
Condos provide parents with the space and comfort they need to unwind and relax in their own, private room away from the kids. Most Disney area condos come with home entertainment systems featuring DVD players and surround sound, so your family can watch a movie together without spending more than $50 for a night at the theater.These are just a few of the many benefits of staying at a Disney-area condo.


Disney-area vacation homes advantages over Disney hotels

Friday, May 7th, 2010

For large families looking to travel on a budget, vacation homes near Walt Disney World Resort offer a lodging alternative that is much cheaper than most Disney World Resort packages. For example, at Disney’s Grand Floridian the cheapest nightly rate for a family is $495, and the most expensive is $1310 per night.
For the price of one night at Disney’s Grand Floridian, you can book four days at a vacation rental home with 3-4 bedrooms and room for eight guests. Other benefits of renting a vacation home include: extra space, more privacy and more amenities for your money. Standard rooms in Disney resorts don’t feature complete entertainment systems that are found in many vacation homes. Kissimmee vacation pool homes provide travelers the chance to unwind and relax with the same comfort they enjoy in their own living rooms, with complete furnishing. Imagine how much you’ll pay for a night at the movie theater and dinner at a restaurant, compared to the cost of eating in, renting a movie and watching it in the comfort of your own living room.
Disney resorts confine you to one or two rooms and if part of your group wants to play board games, while the other part wants to watch a movie, you’ll have to compromise. On the other hand, if you have a complete house for your stay, the kids can play board games in their own room or watch cartoons on their own television, while the adults enjoy reading a book on the couch or a movie together.
At a Disney resort, there’s no telling who your neighbors will be, and for all you know, you could be stuck next to a group of rowdy college students on spring break. Vacation homes offer privacy to protect your kids from strangers and allow parents to monitor their kids throughout the trip. You can’t guarantee a good night’s sleep if you don’t know who your neighbors will be on the other side of a resort wall


How close are the vacation home communities to Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

On-site resorts at Disney, SeaWorld and Universal eliminate the hassle and expense of traveling to local attractions, but they’re usually priced much higher than the typical Kissimmeee vacation home or rental condo.
Fortunately, you can find a vacation home community located within a couple miles of Orlando’s most popular theme parks, including Walt Disney World, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Sea World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Wet N Wild, Aquatica, Discovery Cove, the Orange County Convention Center, and other attractions.
Key roads to look for near your lodging include Interstate 4, Universal Boulevard ,John Young, Kirkman road State Road 192 ,International Drive and Vineland Road. Each of these roads leads to at least one of the major theme parks.
When you’re browsing through the various vacation home communities, be sure to check their location in relation to one of the aforementioned roads. For example, if you find a home in the Orange Lake subdivision, you’ll notice that it’s located right next to state road 192, which will take you straight into the heart of Lake Buena Vista and Kissimmee, home of Disney World. Orange Lake is one of the most popular choices for vacation homes in Orlando because it’s only five minutes away from Disney.
If you find a town home in a subdivision closer to downtown or east Orlando, such as Lake Nona, Baldwin Park or Winter Park, you’ll be closer to the airport, but further from the main theme parks, approximately 30 minutes from Walt Disney World. Main roads near subdivisions in East Orlando include Colonial Drive, Semoran Boulevard, Narcoose Boulevard and Lee Vista Road.
If you are looking to save on your lodging budget or you prefer to stay close to the airport for piece of mind about departing on time, you may opt to stay in East Orlando, but you risk losing valuable time on your journey to and from the theme park. Interstate 4 is known for extremely long delays during rush hour traffic and those delays can ruin an otherwise great day at the theme park.


Disney Vacation Home Package Deals with tickets

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Families on a budget should consider Disney World vacation home package deals at an Orlando vacation home rather than a costly stay at Disney World Resort.
While there are certain advantages to staying on site at a Disney Resort may seem worth the cost, you may not realize some of the advantages of staying off site. First of all, you can pay as much as 3 times more for a Disney Resort than a vacation home, so you’re already spending much more than you need to if you opt to stay at an official Walt Disney World Resort. Also, you’ll pay extra money for many amenities and necessities if you stay at an official Disney Resort. Many of the standard amenities guaranteed by vacation home agencies aren’t even available options at Disney World resorts.
For example, Disney resorts may tout fancy pools, but they can’t offer the intimate and relaxing setting of your own private pool, complete with an outdoor bbq grill. Vacation home package deals usually come with standard appliances such as a stove, wide screen TV, surround sound, video game system, home stereo system, oven, dishwasher, pots and pans, toaster, refrigerator, a washer and dryer (which alleviate your apparel packing needs for your stay) ironing boards, laundry baskets and more.
Other perks of vacation home packages include water skiing, tennis courts, movie theaters beach volleyball and on-site golf courses. Compared to Disney resort prices, you’ll be paying a fraction of the amount. Vacation home packages give your group or family the ability to maximize their daily experience in the Orlando area with a fixed budget. By eliminating overhead such as laundry, eating out, green fees and other expenses, you can spend that money to buy gifts, souvenirs and other items you may not have had the money to afford if you opted to stay on site at a Disney resort.
Most of all, vacation home packages give your group the chance to find a comfortable and intimate setting, where you can house everyone in one central location, without feeling cramped by your neighbors down the hall. With your own house, you can stretch out and relax just like you would in your own home.
