As more people settle into a new normal, working remotely has transformed our work life balance in many ways. Working from home means spending more time with family, no more work commutes, and more time to do the things you love. As travel restrictions begin to lift across the U.S., working remote can mean logging in from any destination. That means you can take that long awaited vacation without worrying about falling behind on work. With fantastic theme parks, water parks, and attractions to explore, Orlando is the perfect destination for enjoying a vacation while working remote. Perks like free high-speed internet and private bedrooms for everyone allow you to stay connected while living it up in Florida. But how do you make a workcation work? Here’s our guide to enjoying a vacation in Orlando while working remote.
Picking the best place to stay is at the top of the list when planning a vacation to Orlando. This is especially important when you’re taking your work with you. A work-friendly accommodation with high-speed internet connection and a private work environment is so important to stay connected and productive while on vacation. But you also want to make sure you choose a place you’ll enjoy.
A vacation rental is a fantastic option that combines the luxuries of a resort with the comforts and privacy of home. With our Orlando vacation rentals, you’ll have access to high speed internet without worrying about dropped Zoom video calls or connectivity issues. You’ll also enjoy the privacy of your own space from which to work, whether it’s a spacious bedroom or you set up in another of the many comfortable spots in our rentals. Gone are the days of slow hotel internet speeds and cramped business centers.
A workcation is so much better when you feel comfortable and at home in your accommodation. This makes taking quick breaks from work more relaxing. With our Orlando vacation rentals, you’ll enjoy the luxury perks of a resort but in the privacy of a vacation home. Take a break from work and step out into your own spacious backyard, or log off and splash into your own private swimming pool. Our selection of large vacation homes ranges from cozy 2-bedroom rentals to large 9-bedroom homes, ensuring every guest has the privacy of their own space to get work done. You can even host a team workcation and have everyone work from home while enjoying the best of Orlando during down time.
While working remotely on vacation, you also want to be sure you have access to everyday conveniences like a full kitchen and on-site laundry units. Choosing a vacation rental home with these amenities included is the best option for combining work and vacation. No constant dipping into your pocket for eating out or searching for a laundromat to keep your clothes clean.
The best part about working from home in Orlando is getting out and seeing everything the destination has to offer. Once you log off, it’s theme parks, thrilling adventures, museums, and water parks. Every weekend is like a vacation, and it’s all right outside your doorstep. A workcation is also perfect for getting the most out of your vacation destination, giving you more time to fully explore Orlando’s top attractions.
No vacation to Orlando is complete without visiting Walt Disney World. This popular family attraction is known for its immense parks and iconic sights, hard to take in for just one day. Get your picture taken with the famous Cinderella’s Castle in the background at Magic Kingdom, and meet your favorite Disney characters like Mulan, Belle, and Mary Poppins at Epcot. Watch the nightly fireworks and parades after enjoying the classic theme park shows and thrill rides.
If you’re more of a history or science buff, make a day trip to the Kennedy Space Center, NASA’s main launch center. Join a bus tour and explore all the sights at the visitor complex. For a relaxing afternoon surrounded by gorgeous artwork, visit the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art. This museum houses a mix of stained glass, jewelry, enamels, mosaics, pottery, and paintings. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle of theme parks, spend a day at Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando. Flowerbeds and shady palm trees line the banks of Lake Eola, framed by a paved perimeter path perfect for getting your daily steps in.
As working from home becomes a larger part of the new normal, bringing your work while on vacation will no doubt follow suit. If you’re considering taking a workcation, choosing the right accommodation and maintaining a good work and vacation balance is key for successfully enjoying your vacation. Working remotely won’t seem like working at all when you experience the luxury of one of our beautiful vacation homes. Reserve yours today!
