If you’re staying in a vacation home in Orlando, you’ll want to visit Disney World! It’s officially the state’s most famous attraction and offers guests of all ages a magical day out. Meet some of your favorite characters from the films, jump on the rollercoasters and other exhilarating rides, or relax and watch one of the many shows that Disney is so famous for. Whatever time of year you choose to enjoy your vacation in Orlando, you’ll find Disney World a truly unforgettable experience.
Dining at Disney World
When it comes to eating at Disney World, there’s a wealth of choice available. There are plenty of buffet-style restaurants in all the Disney theme parks, plus more casual dining options, such as cafes, fast-food outlets and food trucks. Disney World often hosts a range of dinner shows and dining events. For full details about what’s on when you’re staying at one of our vacation rentals in Orlando, simply visit the official Disney site.
Here’s a few great tips to get the best from your Disney World experience:
Be prepared for walking. The Disney attractions are big, and you’ll be on your feet a lot!
Aim for mid-week for the Magic Kingdom. Saturdays can be particularly busy.
If you want to go to a restaurant for a special occasion. especially if you’re travelling as a big group, make sure you book beforehand.
Rather than queuing for hours to meet a Disney character. go to a character meal instead. You can sit down and relax, and your children can meet the characters without waiting ages to do so.
If you’ve seen the parades already, use parade times to get on those rides – queues are always shorter at these times!
The Best Rides at Disney World
Not sure which ride to head to first? Here’s a quick guide to our personal favorites.
Splash Mountain. It’s one of Disney’s most famous rides, and deservedly so! It’s not one of the most terrifying, but this log-flume meets animatronics ride is always worth experiencing.
Mission: SPACE. Head to Disney’s Epcot for this amazing ride, which simulates space travel. It’s a must for any budding astronauts.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this one isn’t for the fainthearted. Plummeting lifts, ghostly goings on and all sorts of thrills await you!
Star Wars… The Adventures Continue. If you’ve got a Star Wars fan in your midst, this is simply unmissable. It’s a simulation ride, designed to take you to a galaxy far, far away…
Expedition Everest.Ever been on a rollercoaster? In the dark? Going backwards? Well, jump on Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and you’ll do just that. Good luck…

Bring Your Own Everything in this home. The house was to supply a small sample of soap, shampoos and the like. Nothing was there! We got in at 11PM and were surprised to find our shower was with shampoo we brought from home. One quick email and the management company was quick to respond to the oversight, but no DW liquid and 1 box of laundry soap. We had brought our own, but it seem like a couple DW pods would have been nice. The beds/pillows were comfortable and the TV room was fun. We didn't pay extra for the heated pool and we're happy about that. The pool was perfect and a tremendous joy after a long day in the parks. The on-site water park was only open 11-6, so that was a bummer for the kids. We thought it would be open in the evening for some extra fun. They did have some transportation available for us to use to get to Disney and though it was limited, we appreciated having that option. (I don't remember it being mentioned in the VRBO listing.) I'd stay again and really appreciate working with a management company that is so great about responding to questions and helping when necessary.

We had a wonderful time at this property. The pictures accurately represent the house - it was spacious and clean with more than enough room for everyone. My daughters LOVED the princess room. The house was conveniently located near Disney and Universal and our family also loved the water park on the property. I would definitely stay here again during our next Orlando vacation.

Great property, excellent amenities including a nice sized pool. Ideal location for a trip to Disney and somewhere comfortable to recover after a day in the parks!

The Orlano Dream
This was our 1 big family Florida holiday. The house/Villa is key to the happiness of the holiday. This Villa is just amazing. It’s huge, so clean and just so well appointed. All bedrooms have a great sized bed and shower.area’s. All Appliances are just so easy to use and ithe washing machine is musical. The reunion resort is brilliant. The water park /pool is just awesome, the staff and food there was top notch. I’d recommend this this to anyone who wants a huge clean property, on a fantastic resort only 15 minutes from Disney. Thank you 🙏

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property during our Disney vacation. The unit was spacious, included all the necessities and was a fantastic, quiet location. It’s within 15-20 mins. of the park entrance. The interior was beautifully decorated and was very comfortable. Best of all, it is located inside the Reunion Resort property and we were able to enjoy resort attractions including a pool right behind our unit and the water park located just a short 5 min. drive away. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to anyone looking for a vacation rental outside of Disney.

Clean, Spacious and Fun
We had our vacation with Grandparents, grown children, and grandkids. This property had everything we could need. Two bedrooms on the main floor made it easier for older adults. The themed rooms for the grandkids were a fabulous hit. The kitchen was spacious with plenty of seating for everyone. Plenty of pots and pans and storage bowls. Family loved playing in the pool. There is an alarm on the door that goes off when it is opened. We felt safe that the kids would not sneak into the pool without us knowing. Property is close to Walmart and restaurants, and Disney parks. Also, in a lovely neighborhood. We definitely recommend this property for a family. Very clean!
