Choosing accommodations is often the first consideration when planning a Disney World vacation. There are many options, ranging from the Disney resort properties, to a number of great off-site hotels near Walt Disney World. But more and more, families are renting vacation homes. For a number of reasons, a Disney World rental house just might be the best option for your family.
To begin with, you will have a lot more space in a vacation home than a hotel room. More space will greatly add to family vacation peace and tranquility:even the closest family can have a bit too much togetherness in a small hotel room. And if your family is one that typically needs multiple hotel rooms, then this will probably save you money. Vacation homes usually can sleep anywhere from 4 to 16 people comfortably, which is great for larger or extended families. Most families find that renting a vacation home is a better overall value than a hotel room.
Having access to a full kitchen with all sorts of cooking accessories is one of the more popular benefits of a vacation home. Most homes come equipped with every possible sort of appliance, dishes, utensils, cookware and more.
It is a great cost-saver to be able to easily make your own meals and snacks. By doing some of your own food preparation, and eating in, you will find that you have a greatly reduced meal budget. Just compare to what it would be if you ate all meals at the theme parks!
Often overlooked is the fact that you may have in your rental property, multiple entertainment options at no additional cost. Many vacation homes have in-house home theaters, game rooms, private pools, video games and may even have access to community centers with fitness and other recreation activities.
And then there is the privacy/relaxation factor: yes it is possible to relax on a Disney vacation! Many homes are located in gated communities, offering a secluded “get away from it all” feeling that you just cannot find at a Disney resort property, or most hotel properties for that matter. You can relax and unwind in your personal pool or spa, take advantage of your home’s theater, or play video games in the game room for as long as you like, at no additional cost.
There are many types of vacation rental homes within close proximity to Walt Disney World, from condos to large, multi-family houses. No matter the size, they come fully furnished, with multiple bathrooms and bedrooms, which is a nice benefit on a family vacation! Typically, linens will be provided, in addition to paper products and other basic essentials.
Increasingly, many folks on a Disney vacation are discovering that a rental home is a great choice. With additional space, and a host of amenities, vacation homes provide a great value. If you are looking to plan an affordable Disney vacation for your family, be sure to consider a Disney World rental house.
