Best Disney Vacation homes for July 4th

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Imagine a Fourth of July vacation where your kids can watch fireworks while they’re surrounded by Mickey Mouse, and a bbq with your family in the tropical setting of the Sunshine State.
If you’ve always dreamed about celebrating our nation’s independence underneath the fireworks at Walt Disney World in Orlando, you can turn that dream into reality for a reasonable price this summer. Fortunately Orlando vacation packages have never been more affordable for families on a budget. Vacation homes near Disney are available at rates that start at fraction of the cost of on-site hotels and resorts.
Bargains are easy to find through Orlando discount travel sites, such as Dwvacationhomes.com, which lists the cheapest rates for hotels,resorts and vacation homes across Orlando, Kissimmee and the Central Florida area. Rather than blowing most of your budget on an expensive resort, you can treat your family to a spacious vacation home with many more amenities than a resort, where you will get more bang for your buck.Vacation homes provide you with a more relaxed atmosphere that will reduce your stress.
Vacation homes are competitively priced and many are located in subdivisions within only a few miles of Walt Disney World and the other major theme parks in the Orlando area. For example, on DWvacationhomes.com, you can reserve a three bedroom standard pool home for $125 per night. Amenities are among the top reasons to consider a vacation home. Unlike a resort, vacation homes come fully furnished and include private features you can’t find at a resort, such as a private pool, a family entertainment center, a full size kitchen and separate rooms for everyone in the family. Our Disney World Vacation homes listed are within a short ,10 to 15 minute drive from Disney World, and they’re all recently built, most within the past four years.
In addition to the extra space and privacy, vacation homes also come with silverware and glassware for dining at home. By dining in for a few meals during your stay, you and your family can save up to hundreds of dollars.


Why rent a vacation pool home?

Monday, December 28th, 2009

I had this question posed to me at breakfast this morning. The query from my good friend was: Why rent a Disney Vacation rental? My response to him was: Why…not?

It is not hard to look at the many attractive reasons for such accommodations. One they are relatively new to the market, two, they offer significantly more space for the family to enjoy their vacation rather than being cramped in a 20 x 20 hotel room, the amenity package such as a full kitchen and your own private swimming pool are huge benefit…and finally, the nightly rates due to the economic slow-down are quite attractive now.

Really, when we break it out…it is hard not to say “why not” in answering the why rent a vacation pool home in Orlando.
I mentioned earlier most homes found at www.dwvacationhomes.com are relatively new. All of the vacation homes we rent were built in this decade. This means our oldest homes are inside of nine years old. Almost all of our executive homes were constructed in 2005 to 2007 so they are almost brand new. This is a huge plus for the vacationer for who wouldn’t want to live in a new home rather than an older one?

There is significantly more space in a home. The average 3BR/2BA home is about 1,800 sq ft. That is a little over 4.5 times the size of a traditional hotel room. This huge amount of space allows all members of the family to enjoy their vacation without being under each other’s foot. Further with a four bedroom executive home, you get 3 baths…the extra baths cut down dramaticly on the time needed for the family to get ready for the day’s upcoming activities.

That full kitchen will save your budget. You desire to economize on this year’s Disney vacation, you will find that having your own kitchen will save the family of four upwards to $40 a day just in breakfast cost alone. If you add in a dinner or two spent at home around your private pool, you can add another $75 per day to the savings total. What a great way to economize and hurdle the high costs of attraction tickets? Definitely renting your own private pool home is an easy way to bring your vacation budget in line.

It is a known fact that having your own private pool will enhance the entire family’s vacation experience. So many times we receive testimonial letters from our guests thanking us for suggesting a private vacation pool home as a “better option” than renting a hotel in the Orlando market. Many parents have said that the kids looked forward to coming home each afternoon from a day at the parks for the pool offered a continuation of the good times enjoyed throughout the day.

Finally, since we on the budget….we need to be reminded that the nightly costs of a three bedroom vacation home with your own private pool is as affordable as a three star hotel room close to Disney World. That’s right! Due to the recession and the vast inventory of vacation pool homes in the Orlando market, prices have been slashed to where they are literally a steal.

If you and your family are considering a Disney World vacation this year, you definitely want to explore the renting of a vacation pool home that is available to you at www.dwvacationhomes.com…you will be glad you did.


Purchase Cheap Disney Vacations with Your Own Disney Vacation Home

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Cheap Disney Vacations are still available even though Disney just increased their ticket prices across the board. For the forth straight year, Disney has increased their theme park ticket prices on the first Sunday in August. Many wondered if Disney would increase their prices this year because of an economic recession. Disney ticket prices are now higher than ever. Adult one day tickets went up four dollars and children tickets increased by five dollars per ticket. Ticket prices also went up two dollars on the Park Hopper Option.

An announcement that has flown under the radar is that Disney has extended their annual pass from 12 months to 15 months. Now, you can get 3 more months of Disney Them Park Magic for the price of just 12. No one is certain as to why Disney is not marketing this ticket option more. It is all very interesting because Disney wants you to stay longer at their theme parks and that’s why they push the multiday passes so much. They don’t want you spending on of your vacation money at Universal Studios or Seaworld nor at the other 50 attractions in the Orlando area. The multiday passes are specifically set up so that you visit Disney more on your vacation. That is why single day ticket prices are so high. They want you to visit their parks multiple days. That is why I would recommend the annual pass. You get to go to all the Major Disney Parks for the cheapest price and now that you get 3 more months, the deal just got better.

Another great way to get cheap Disney Vacations and have a whole lot more fun is to book a Disney Vacation Home close to the Disney Parks. You can book a beautiful vacation home at the Emerald Island Resort for just $83 per night. That’s cheaper than many hotels. The Emerald Island Resort is located just 2 miles away from Disney and is available as a 3 bedroom unit all the way up to 7 bedroom units. They also offer shuttle services to the Disney Resort so you don’t have to drive to Disney, so, you can avoid paying for parking at Disney. The vacation homes come with a fully equipped kitchen. If you make just a few small meals in the kitchen, while on vacation, you will save yourself a good bit of money.

As you can see, if you want a cheap Disney vacation, all it takes is a little planning and research and you can save your family a lot of money. If you like the best deal on a Disney Vacation, call one of our Disney Reservationists at 1-888-269-0276.


Save on your Disney Vacation

Friday, July 31st, 2009

If you are thinking about going to Disney anytime soon, then, you should book your vacation sooner rather than later because Walt Disney World is set to raise their prices once again to all of their theme parks. If you book before the next price hike, you can lock in the lesser ticket prices and save yourself some money. Disney has raised prices regularly for the past couple of years on the first Sunday in August, and this year will be no exception. It’s not a matter of if they will raise their prices, it’s more of a question of how much. Disney does not disclose the amount of the increase in advance. It more or less just happens.

If you are looking to go to the Disney Parks, then you should certainly look into staying at a Disney vacation home that is close to all of Disney parks. A vacation home can also help you save money a few ways. One is that the home comes with a full kitchen. If a family will take the time to eat just breakfast in the home rather than the local diners, a family of four could easily save $40 a day on food alone.

Another great amenity of a vacation home is that it offers a private pool. So, rather than going to a packed hotel pool, your family can spend some quality time relaxing and playing as a family in the pool and while you’re at it, have a nice barbecued lunch. You could truly make a day of this rather than hitting another them park. theme park tickets for one day for a family of four at the major theme parks could easily run you another $300 or $100-$150 to the less popular parks.

These are just a few ways that you can save on your Disney Vacation. If you would like to learn more, give one of our reservation specialists a call at 1-888-269-0276 and they will be glad to hep you.

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

If you are looking for Disney Area Rental Homes for your Orlando Vacation, look no further. At DW Vacation Homes, we specialize in finding families the best vacation home for their Orlando Vacation. We have serviced the Orlando Market for nearly 20 years now. That has given us plenty of time to locate to the very best vacation homes.

All of our Disney Homes come equipped with full kitchens, plenty of space, nice televisions, washer and dryer, home furniture, and you also have the option of having your own private pool. All of the comforts and conveniences of home will be right at your finger tips.

Disney Area Rental Homes are located near the Disney World Resort which makes the trips to and from the parks much quicker and easier. You certainly do not want to be stuck in the Orlando Traffic and what better way to avoid to the traffic than being just minutes from the Disney Theme Parks.

The best vacation homes to rent are located in the Kissimmee Area. Kissimmee Vacation Homes are located closer to Disney than vacation homes in Orlando. Disney World is located in Kissimmee, Florida and not in Orlando, Florida. Although, most people associate Disney with the city of Orlando. If you desire to stay in an Orlando Vacation Home and you plan on visiting the Disney Parks, then, be sure to find out how far your vacation home is from Disney. Another, thing to consider, if you stay in Orlando, is when you will leaving to go to the parks? If you are going during the work week, try not to travel between the hours of 7AM – 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM – 7PM as those are the busiest hours on the roads. Slow moving traffic is common during those times as locals rush to and from work.


Vacation Homes Near Disney

Vacation Homes Near Disney

We were on our second night of our Disney Vacation and we had gone to the Disney Parks for the second straight day. Yesterday we went to Animal Kingdom and today we went to the Magic Kingdom. I never realized how hard it is to visit 2 theme parks 2 days straight. My calves and feet were seriously hurtin’ and I felt like I just ran a marathon. What I did not realize is that I may have just walked one in our 2 days at the Disney theme parks. The average person walks about 10 miles per day so I roughly put in about 20 miles on my tennis shoes. My feet may never forgive me.

Anyhow, we were very tired at the end of our day at the Magic Kingdom and everyone was hungry too. I don’t know about you, but I do not like traffic and long lines at the local vacation “hot spot” restaurant/tourist trap. That’s where my wife’s wisdom kicks in high gear. Before we booked our vacation, my wife thoroughly researched Vacation Homes Near Disney. She new ahead of time that we would need to stay close to Disney to have our best vacation because although it would be fun at the parks, it could be tiring too, and it would be best if we could get home quickly after our day at the Disney theme parks. One of the added bonuses of staying in Vacation Homes Near Disney is that the homes come with fully equipped kitchens so as soon as we got in town we picked up a few snacks and small meals and stored them in the refrigerator. I am so glad that we did this because after our day at the Magic Kingdom, I just wanted eat, relax, unwind and jump in the pool for a few minutes and and I was able to do just that. We sure had a great time at Disney this year and our vacation home near Disney made all the difference.
