Where Are Vacation Homes in Proximity to Walt Disney World?

You’ve heard about vacation homes, and the idea sounds very appealing for your next Walt Disney World vacation. You love the thought of having an actual full-sized house with living space, a full kitchen, and enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone comfortably. Now you might be wondering, “Are there homes close to Disney, or will I be out in the boondocks?”

Don’t worry, there are plenty of vacation homes near the Walt Disney World resort. Here’s the low-down on three of the most popular areas:


Davenport is a hot spot for Walt Disney World vacation homes because it combines a great location with the feel of being in a residential area. Davenport vacation homes put you within 10 minutes of the Animal Kingdom area and close to both the I-4 expressway and the 429 toll road. You’ve got plenty of grocery stores and other retailers if you plan to cook in your vacation home or need to pick up a few necessities. The one thing you don’t have is a tourist strip right outside your door, with tacky souvenir shops and endless conga lines of cars. Regal Palms Resort and Spa is a very popular vacation home spot in this area.

Davenport vacation homes are also convenient to Legoland Florida, which is outside of the Orlando attractions area, in a town called Winter Haven. Hop on Highway 27 and you’re half an hour or less from this fun little park that appeals to younger kids and Lego addicts of any age.

West 192

If you want something closer to Walt Disney World than Davenport, yet you still like the Animal Kingdom vicinity, choose a vacation home located off West 192. One you get off that main road, you’re in a relaxing area mainly populated by vacation homes, with little traffic or noise. Emerald Isle Resort is a good example of a popular vacation home community in this area. Zip from your house to Disney World through the “secret” back entrance via Black Lake Road to Sherbeth Road. If you’re looking for restaurants, stores, and attractions like miniature golf or go-karts, just head east down 192 and you’ll find enough activities for many vacations to come.


Poinciana is another close-but-not-too-close spot for Walt Disney World vacation homes. It puts you in close proximity to Highway 192, a major route to Disney property and I-4, but you’re still in a spot that feels more residential. Poinciana vacation homes put you 10 minutes away or less from Disney property, and you’ll easily get to Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando via I-4, which you can pick up by heading west on 192, or via 535, which is just east of the Poinciana Blvd. and 192 intersection. Terra Verde Resort is a popular spot in Poinciana for Disney vacationers, since it has resort amenities right on site and is only minutes away from the theme parks.
