Top Reasons to Stay at a Disney Vacation Rental vs a Hotel

Are you planning a magical getaway to the enchanting world of Disney, or exploring the wonders of Orlando? As you embark on your Disney getaway, consider the advantages of opting for a vacation home rental or condo over a typical hotel stay. While you spend time exploring this theme park playground, a Disney vacation rental will provide a home base with the perfect mix of privacy, space and a range of amenities that promise a truly unforgettable experience. If you’re curious about some of the advantages of staying in a vacation rental versus a hotel for your Disney vacation, keep reading! We’ve compiled a list of some of the best reasons to stay in a vacation rental for your Disney visit.

Spacious Accommodations

One of the most compelling reasons to choose a Disney vacation rental is the ample space it provides for your family. Unlike standard hotel rooms, vacation homes provide multiple bedrooms and spacious living areas, ensuring that everyone in your party has plenty of space to relax and unwind. This is especially valuable for families or groups traveling together, as it provides the best balance between privacy and togetherness, perfect for creating lasting memories of your special trip.

Peace and Privacy

Privacy and tranquility are precious commodities, and vacation rentals provide them in abundance. Say goodbye to noisy hotel hallways and crowded lobbies – instead, bask in the serenity of your own private space when you return from the theme parks. You can enjoy uninterrupted privacy and a better night’s sleep in a vacation rental, rather than dealing with noisy hotel room neighbors, the beep of the elevator down the hall, and long check-in lines at arrival. Additionally, private amenities like backyard pools and patios add an additional layer of seclusion and fun. Our vacation rental homes are also located in private neighborhoods in Orlando, lending more of a homey vibe to your vacation home base.

Dining Flexibility

When it comes to dining options, vacation home rentals elevate the experience by offering fully equipped kitchens. Stock the fridge with some basics and enough for some simple meals, and you’ll end up saving quite a bit of money versus eating at expensive restaurants for every meal. Even if you only plan on preparing breakfast at home, it’s still a money-saver and a nice amenity to have a kitchen in your rental! Staying in a Disney vacation home rental also allows you to cater to specific dietary preferences and enjoy healthier food options, versus greasy breakfast buffets and fast-food. This added flexibility can be a game-changer, particularly for families with picky eaters or those looking to maintain a balanced diet while on vacation.

Resort Amenities

In addition to the many exclusive amenities vacation rentals provide, such as private pools, hot tubs, and game rooms, our Disney resort properties offer access to resort amenities to level up your vacation. From water slides to movie theaters, there are plenty of options to keep your family entertained at our Disney vacation rental homes and condos. Here are a few examples of our luxury vacation resorts and the incredibly amenities they offer:
