Orlando has a big mix of theme parks, from the four Disney parks to Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure to SeaWorld Orlando, as well as several water parks, but you might not realize that it has an amazing variety of hotels, too.
With so much competition, there are many great deals available on Orlando vacation hotels. Sure, you can stay on Disney property, but your best savings comes from choosing one of the many properties in the surrounding area. They’re convenient to all of the attractions, as well as restaurants and shopping. They have multiple swimming pools and family friendly amenities like water parks and miniature golf. Better yet, they offer large rooms and suites at extremely reasonable rates for budget-conscious travelers who want a lot for the least amount of money.
With all the great deals available on Orlando vacation hotels, it’s often hard to choose one. Here are a few of the many options, complete with their high points. Any one is a great choice for your family:
The Holiday Inn Maingate East belongs to one of the most trusted hotel chains. You know you’ll have clean, comfortable accommodations, and if you stay at this hotel, you get the added bonus of close proximity to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Epcot, and the Magic Kingdom. I-4 is just down the road to put you on the path to Universal Orlando Resort and SeaWorld Orlando. However, if your family loves to explore lesser-known attractions, you’ll enjoy the location on the 192 tourist strip that puts you within easy walking distance of rides, restaurants, and stores. Schedule a day just for exploration.
The Holiday Inn Resort Lake Buena Vista is another Holiday Inn property located near Downtown Disney and the 535 tourist strip. You get the brand-name assurance of quality and a location that’s quite literally in the thick of all the excitement, with Disney almost outside your door and Universal and SeaWorld just a short drive away.
The Baymont Inn and Suites Celebration is right near the west entrance to Walt Disney World, which puts you by Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the Blizzard Beach water park, with easy access to the other parks, too. It’s the perfect combination of staying in the midst of the Highway 192 attractions, yet being literally next door to Disney property.
The Royal Parc Suites is for those who like immersive vacations that include a themed resort. If you don’t want to pay the high prices at Disney’s Port Orleans, this hotel gives you the same type of atmosphere at a fraction of the cost. You won’t get free breakfast at a Disney-owned hotel, but you get it here. It’s in a prime 192 location near Old Town, Fun Spot, and I-4, making it perfect for those who intend to see Universal and SeaWorld along with Disney World or who want to explore other attractions in their down-time.
The Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham features a trusted brand name and a perfect location that’s central not only to Walt Disney World, but also to SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Orlando Resort. With free breakfast, a swimming pool, hot tub, and game room, there’s plenty to do at the hotel in between visits to the attraction. The food and shopping options are plentiful around the hotel, too.
Liki Tiki Village is a tropical paradise for families, and what would the tropics be without a water park? That’s just one of the many resort amenities you’ll find here. Even though you’re just minutes from Walt Disney World, the resort is worthy of a whole day just enjoying the water activities, miniature golf, or paddle boats. The resort’s location adds to the sense of relaxation, since it’s on the west end of the Disney area, which is much more laid back.
Mystic Dunes is a golf resort with an upscale feel and amenities that will make the kids reluctant to head over to the theme parks. After all, if they stay here, they can play miniature golf, have fun in the game room, and cool off in the water park. If Mom and Dad like golf, that makes it even more appealing. When you’re got this many amenities right on site, it’s easy to forget just how close you are to Walt Disney World.
