We wanted to try make things easier for you by giving you a guide to the various types of accommodation in the Orlando area and the questions you should ask yourself when choosing what suits you and your family best.

Orlando has the second largest amount of hotel rooms after Las Vegas in the whole of America so the choice is huge and there are hotels to suit every budget. Most hotels are situated along International Drive but you can also stay on site in the theme parks or out in the surrounding areas. Most hotels would have the usual hotel amenities including pools, wifi, bar etc.


Scattered along International Drive and the surrounding areas are lots of apartment choices. These are great for those wanting a self-catering option. Some include complimentary breakfasts. Several apartment complexes are located in prime International Drive areas meaning you don’t require a car. They are perfect for families who want a bit more space.


These villas are great for those larger families and groups. Car hire is essential when you have a private villa to get around.


Staying in a hotel in a theme park opens doors to a lot of extra benefits and perks such as early park entry, complimentary fast passes, free transport to and from the airport and so much more. These are an excellent choice for those wanting some luxury and they make a great stay for honeymoons as well!

So there you have it! Tour America’s quick and easy guide to choosing accommodation in Orlando Florida!
