below we provide some general advice to help you think about this and make sure the accommodation you choose is perfect for you!
Advice for Families with young children:
If you are planning a vacation around the kids and are looking to immerse yourselves among Disney itself (for example), then it may be ideal to stay in a hotel on the Disney resort as there is easy and quick transportation available to and from the hotel to the attractions which may suit well with young kids.
Advice for Families with Teenagers:
Equally, you may intend to divide up your vacation time by spending half the days at the theme parks and the rest of the time at other events in Central Florida. If this is the case, offsite accommodation may be best. This may be the case if you are a family with teenagers as whilst you may want to immerse in some of the theme park activities, you may also enjoy time away from the attractions, such as at a pool or the beach.
Advice for Single Travelers or Couples:
Whilst you may have the desire to immerse yourselves among the theme park attractions, perhaps you are looking to spend most of your holiday relaxing, largely away from the noise and touristy areas. If this is the case, then it may be worth considering staying at a vacation rental that is near to the coast or saturated at a distance from the attractions with the option to drive to them as you please, but still allowing the opportunity to relax in some peace and quiet.
