When planning your theme park vacation, there is no shortage of options for where to stay in Orlando. With more than 400 hotels as well as vacation home rentals and campgrounds, Orlando has enough accommodation options to suit all needs with regard to budget, location and size.
There are, of course, tons of considerations for what type of accommodation to pursue. Some of them include which attractions you will be visiting, how long you will be staying, whether you will be renting a car or flying, and the size of your party. There are also personal preferences to consider. Do you want to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort property or are you looking for a budget hotel close by on International Drive? Would a vacation home/villa rental work better for your family or are you driving an RV to Florida and need a campground?
For most families, we recommend staying at the resort properties at the Walt Disney World Resort and the Universal Orlando Resort or the partner hotels at the SeaWorld Orlando Resort. Each of them carries its own benefits and perks, which we outline below, including proximity to the theme parks. Some offer free transportation, by monorail, bus or boat. All offer early entry to the theme parks. Larger groups or those who are looking for extended stays may find the most economical options are renting vacation homes or time shares.
