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…

Movie room was great, nice onsite amenities, good staff.
The onsite water park was great, all staff members were wearing masks, and keeping distance, the restaurant had great food, and the booking company were great to deal with answering any questions we had. It was my partner and my family who came along, we loved the cinema room at night time to relax and watch some films. We will definitely come and stay again, Thanks so much for sharing your home with us, we will not forget this vacation!

It was everything we needed. And, it was close to Disney

We spent 8 days at this property during our annual training event. The house was extremely comfortable and the area is fantastic. The amenities at inside the gated community were fantastic and could be enjoyed by the entire family. Check-in was a breeze and the level of service provided by the owner was second to none. The location is close enough to all major highways, but far enough that it remains quiet and peaceful. It is also close to many of the major attractions and restaurants. All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this property.

Loved our stay here!
Property was great. Convenient central location to parks and attractions. Nearby stores and restaurants. Pool and spa at the house were enjoyed daily by our family. Quiet, private backyard area. Waterpark on the Reunion property was perfect for the kids. Theater and game room were a big hit as well. Plenty of room to entertain guests while we stayed.

Great place for 8 guys. Plenty of space and very comfortable. On our ‘come back to’ list.

This was a great place for our family to get together safely during COVID. The location is close enough to the theme parks, but honestly the home offered so much that we really didn't need to leave. It was clean and spacious, and the kitchen was perfect for cooking group meals. Everyone in our family wishes we could have a home like this! Only downside was that the additional fees basically doubled the rental price.

A great place for families. Wonderful accommodations.
Will definitely stay here again.

What a great house and great location! It fit all of our needs. The kids loved the rooms. The house was exactly as advertised. Great water park at the resort, and close to the Disney attractions. The location of the Publix was great as well. We definitely recommend and plan on making more great memories at this house!

Beautiful home and great location!
The house was beautiful, well taken care of, clean and in a very nice location. We spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub, drove to Disney a few days (a short drive) and spent some time at the water park within the community. We couldn't have had a more fantastic time. Would definitely come back!

The home was beautiful and clean and although there was construction in the area with new properties being built we had no issues navigating in and out the area. This house is in an ideal area as well close to everything and only about 17 minutes from Disney. Only issue we had was with the hot tub not operating correctly so we couldn’t use it because it never warmed up. Other than that property manager was easy to get in touch with and maintenance was prompt and attentive. Great stay would definitely come again
