Orlando having the second largest number of hotel rooms is only part of the story on places where you can stay while in the Orlando area. The Walt Disney World Resort alone offers a plethura of lodging options from one star to five star traditional hotels and motels. In addition to that Disney also has a large number of timeshare units, which you can rent as well as buy into their vacation club.
Osceola County (South Orlando/Kissimmee) has the most options not only can you choose from one to five star hotels and motels but you also have a huge number of vacation home rentals which are ideal for families. You can rent homes with up to 5 bedrooms and private pools. You can also save yourself some money with a kitchen of your own. Vacation home rentals are also a great option for couples and families traveling together.
The International Drive Resort area also has the one to five star hotel and motel options but rooms are costlier and there is not the vacation home rental option like in Orlando/South Kissimmee. It’s a great location to stay however if you are planning on visiting Universal Orlando or Sea World parks because it’s so very close.
So much depends upon what you plan to do while visiting Orlando in choosing lodging options but I will say staying on Disney property is the least convienent if you plan on doing anything besides the Disney parks. Orlando South/Kissimmee is a great choice for economy and location if you plan on visiting more than one operators theme parks. I hope you will consider spending a night with us at Capone’s Dinner & Show when in Orlando. Visit our web site www.alcapones.com to find out more.
