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.
Choosing the Right Accommodation
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.
Enjoying the Perks of Home
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.

Each year thousands of people head to Orlando for the theme parks, sunshine, and to create everlasting family memories. But did you know Orlando has the second-largest convention center in the country? The Orange County Convention Center draws in thousands of guests each year. With COVID-19 on everyone’s mind, it’s hard to tell when Orlando will be booming with business travel once again.
In this article, we’re going to cover what could be your next home away from home and some tips to avoid the bore that can be working from home. You won’t find any packing tips, or how to get the most out of your airline’s reward program. Grab your boarding pass and check a bag because working remotely from a vacation home here in Florida could be what you need to spruce up your work-from-home routine.
Free Wi-Fi For All
Internet connections can be a tricky thing when working while away from home. Frequent travelers know hotels jam hundreds of guests onto a single access point which leads to massive slowdowns. With a vacation rental, your connection is just like the one you’d find at home… maybe a little better.
Each one of our Orlando vacation rentals includes private internet access and robust wifi for the whole family. No more dropped Zoom calls and robot voices. Save time and stay connected with the entire team.
Upgrade From the Tiny Hotel Desk
Privacy is one of the most important requirements when it comes to working remotely. Traveling with your family in a hotel could mean and an important call is interrupted by the rest of your group. Spreading out over an entire home means more room for privacy. Some of our homes even have theaters and lofts that can be a great spot to catch up with the team remotely.
After some of the jet lag has worn off you can also set up a remote work area near the pool. Most of our homes come with a screened in lanai which makes a great office backdrop in the morning.
As the heat picks up mid-day you can cool off inside and away from the busy pool. Hotel rooms just don’t have any flexibility when it comes to working space. Nobody wants to spend their business trip cramped up in the room or in a drab business center.
Make Use of the Rental Car
Most frequent flyers know it’s best to grab a rental car for their trip. Moving luggage and carry on bags is a lot easier, and making sure to be on time is a lot easier when you don’t have to depend on Uber and Lyft to get you places. Trust us, it can get busy during convention season.
A rental car is also a great way to break away from the rest of the crowd or pick up some lunch for the family. If you didn’t bring enough healthy snacks to your rental, you can always head to the local Wal-Mart or Publix for a quick trip during your lunch break. They’re usually just a few minutes away and be sure to pick up a Publix Sub to enjoy some local Florida fare.
Make Your Next Business Trip Even Better
Traveling to Orlando with family is great, but did you know you can also book a home or villa for your entire team. With flexible cancellations, easy payments, and hundreds of homes to choose from Global Resort Homes is a perfect fit for your next team outing.
